 Apparently shirts are optional when you eat my sweet potato and chorizo hash with sunny side up eggs. Recipe is on the blog although recently we have been adding poblanos to the mix the last few times and we love the new combination. #brunch #sweetpotatohash #paleo #paleokid #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Who had enough sweet potatoes yesterday for thanksgiving? Not us! #sweetpotatofordays #sweetpotatohashcomingrightup #paleo #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 The pumpkin butternut squash soup was a hit! I'll have to post the recipe on the blog soon. I served it in little plastic cups with fresh sage and crumbled nitrate free bacon on top. They were great as an appetizer today but hearty enough to serve as an entire meal as well. Yum! Hope you all had a great thanksgiving! We all have so much to be thankful for! #thanksgiving #friendsgiving #blessed #grateful #pumpkin #butternutsquash #soup #paleo #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Who says you can't eat healthy on Thanksgiving? I made my homemade festive quac with avocado, poblanos (add jalapeños for an extra kick), pomegranate seeds, fresh cilantro, salt to taste and fresh squeezed lime juice to our neighbors' friendsgiving this afternoon. I also made a fresh cocktail with fresh squeezed pomegranate juice, champagne and fresh sage. #yum #happythanksgiving #paleo #friendsgiving #eattherainbow #festive #ourfullplate
 It's pumpkin butternut squash soup time. I had my heart pressed on finding a big pumpkin to serve the soup from but these two little ones will have to do! Thankful for my family and friends near and far! Also thankful for precut organic butternut squash so I can spend those extra minutes cuddling my crazy boys! #gobblegobble #thanksgiving #paleo #pumpkin #soup #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 This little Santa's helper helped me make a new Pomegranate and Avocado "dip." I chopped up two fresh avocados and tossed it with lime juice from one large lime, a handful of fresh cilantro, 1 chopped poblano (sub jalapeño if you handle the heat), salt to taste and 1/4 cup of fresh pomegranate seeds! Stir altogether and it's instant Christmas in a bowl! You can also add fresh cranberries instead of pomegranate seeds for the same holiday feel. Serve with fresh vegetables or plantain chips for a great starter without any of the guilt. #happyholidays #iknowimearly #youcanstilleathealthyduringtheholidays #avocado #christmas #paleo #paleokid #thiskid #lovehim #startthemyoung #fitfluential #ourfullplate
