Our Full Plate on Instagram

 Love my little dinosaur. Yes, it's only 58 degrees, but we wear hats and bundle up. That's cold for us Texans. #texas #coldfront #cutestkidEVER #workingmama #army #soldier #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 Have YOU Tried my Paleo Crock Pot Mongolian Beef? It's such a crowd pleaser. Love how my extended Connecticut family made it and loved it!!! Recipe on the blog! #betterthanPFChangs #healthyChinesefood #paleo #crockpot #slowcooker #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 I have to remember moments like this when my day gets stressful at work. Nursing my baby, drinking bulletproof coffee, and holding hands. #stoptime #nothingelsematters #calmbeforethestorm #workingmama #breastfeeding #weaning #mybabyisntababyanymore #paleo #bulletproofcoffee #blessed #FitFluential #ourfullplate @BFinCB
 Dinner tonight was made with 7 types of veggies: kale, carrots, parsnips, spaghetti squash, red and yellow bell peppers and onions! We play a game now with the boys to guess how many ingredients are in foods to make it more interesting and hopefully gets them excited to try new veggies. Tonight I made my Paleo homemade ground beef and pork tomato meat sauce v2.0 (recipe on the blog) with roasted spaghetti squash. I served the main dish with carrots and parsnips roasted in lard and seasonings and my latest recipe of kale, bacon and butternut squash (but I used carrot and parsnips instead). Love how we will have lots of leftovers for the week to include the kale salad which is great with eggs in the morning. What did you do to prep for this week? #mealprep #planahead #eatmorevegetablesthanavegetarian #paleo #jerf #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 Here is a picture of the what my lazy person's hash (roasted broccoli and bacon) looked like before I devoured it. See previous post for recipe. The boys call it "crazy vegetable man face." :) #paleo #bacon #breakfast #FitFluential #ourfullplate
 Now THIS is how you make broccoli! #Repost from @ourfullplate --- My lazy version of a morning hash. Take two lbs of broccoli (I mostly use fresh but as you can see frozen will certainly do), add a little avocado oil, seasoning of your choice and add 3-5 pieces of uncooked bacon on top of it and roast it all in the oven at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. At that point, I usually take out the bacon strips and broil the broccoli for another few minutes to get them extra brown. I then chop the bacon, stir and serve the roasted broccoli with two runny eggs over easy and breakfast is done! Best part is you will have leftovers for the following two to three days. #easypeasy #paleo #hash #breakfast #bacon #FitFluential #ourfullplate
