Our Full Plate on Instagram

 "Carnitas for days." This was my great friend Jessica's dinner. I told her I am coming over. Whose tried my Crock Pot Pork Shoulder Pernil-Carnitas Style? Recipe on the blog. It's super easy to make, delicious and above all a great meal if you don't want to cook for the following 2 days. #bestleftovers #Imhungry #Crockpot #slowcooker #Paleo #whole30 #21dsd #jerf #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 As much as I was rushing out the door this morning getting this crock pot meal together, I was very excited to come after a long day at work to dinner almost done. It was utter bliss knowing all I had to do was dump two bags of frozen cauliflower, an onion and some garlic cloves on a lined cookie sheet and roast it at 450 degrees for 30 minutes and then blend together. Have you tried my delicious Paleo Crock Pot Mongolian Beef or Roasted Garlic, Onion and Cauliflower mashers v2.0 yet? Both recipes are on the blog. Happy Monday. #Paleo #Jerf #Crockpot #slowcooker #planaheadpaleo #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 I skipped my daily lunchtime workout today to milk my bum Achilles post half marathon and went out to lunch with my Soldiers. Here is my #paleoish lunch...bunless cheeseburger with bacon, sweet potato fries and lots and lots of fresh squeezed lemon water. As much as I loved spending some quality time with my team, I'm sleepy. There are many reasons why I try to squeeze afternoon workouts mid lunch. Not only is the fact that going out to eat everyday is super expensive it also takes as long to go out to eat semi questionable food than knocking out a quick WOD. Plus I feel more focused and rejuvenated post workout and can conqueror the rest of the workday.

 Hey @dianesanfilippo here is what my iced cold lemon water looks this morning. I used to be good about drinking two of these waters (68 oz total) on my morning commute BEFORE I would reach for a cup of #bulletproofcoffee. Thanks for the motivation to get back at it! I forgot how good and refreshing drinking fresh squeezed lemon water is. As I chug this, I'm reminded during basic Army training where they constantly yell at us in this militant annoying voice, "Driiiiink Waaaaaater." You have replaced my Army drill sergeant. FYI you much prettier and more stylish than them! #drillsergeantdiane #shouldhavelistenedmore #hydrationiskey #hydrate #soldier #army #bostoncollegealumni #Paleo #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 And this is what you eat AFTER you run 13.1 miles...a triple lettuce wrapped burger and a #glutenfree @omisionbeer! #ideserveit #sadlyicouldhaveeatenanother #Paleo #treat #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 Not my best performance, but a solid 13.1 miles to log in the books. Love running in my city. So thankful for great running friends and an active community that #atx has! #halfmarathon #3mhalfmarathon #run #austin #texas #FitFluential #ourfullplate
