Our Full Plate on Instagram

 For those of you who remember, last week I posted that I found these ants (see picture in left) in my @contigo water bottle AFTER I already took a big sip. After running this water bottle two times through the dishwasher and boiling it, I was ready to get the courage to start drinking out of it again. This morning, my boys played a trick on me and guess what I found in it again. Cricket flour is in now, right?!? #boyswillbeboys #practicaljokes #notfunny #protein #paleo #ourfullplate
 This is what happens when you have been working for the last 15 days straight without a day off. Little meal planning and no food in the fridge equals you must pick up breakfast on the way into work. I ordered a big ass egg, bacon and avocado taco and although I ate the majority with a fork, I may or may not have taken a *few* bites of that buttery flour tortilla before I ditched it. #notpaleoperfect #imtootiredtocare #mondayblues #5moredaysofwork #shootmenow #ourfullplate
 I think everyone would meal plan and prepare for the week if they had a hot hubby to help them do it. #mealprep #preparetoplanorplantofail #hothubby #paleo #ourfullplate #fitfluential
 Monkey see, monkey do. Our boys doing overhead squats RX, Star Wars style while watching the last two events of the @crossfitgames. In addition to their form, we might have to work on their egos, since they think they can beat all of the CF athletes on TV. #crossfit #crossfitkids #crossfitgames #kidssaythedarnestthings #ourfullplate
 Not to toot my own horn, but I think I just out did myself. I just made a Paleo version of 7 later dip with homemade plantain chips and it was delicious. It is THAT good that if I don't post the recipe soon you should come find me and beat me up :) I loved how fresh it turned out compared to the other nonpaleo versions of this dip that I have tried. Layers from bottom up was grassfed beef and sautéed onions with taco seasoning, romaine lettuce, fresh salsa/ pico de gallo, guacamole and then fresh cilantro. You can add olives for the 7th layer. I just don't like them so I skipped it. For the "chips," I cut the plantains thin and then sautéed them in coconut oil. What a great dish to bring to a potluck! Good thing I'm going to one! #tgif #jerf #paleo #fresh #ourfullplate #fitfluential
 What do you do when you fall from box jumping and scrape off 1/4 inch of skin on your shins the day prior? Do you quit and don't workout again to nurse your wounds?!? Nah, you get back on that horse and make a makeshift bandage out of masking tape to save the scabs from tearing up once again. Then you do 30 Barbell Complexes of deadlift, hang clean, front squat to a jerk and of course 50 burpee pull ups. #stupidisasstupiddoes #feltlikemacgyver #improvise #crossfit #cfmabry #fitfluential #ourfullplate #atx #austin #texas
