Our Full Plate on Instagram

 What a crazy day! I'm on the road all week for work and I had to eat my morning breakfast on the go. Don't worry I was not eating and Instagraming while driving. It's days like this I am happy I stayed up late on Sunday to prep breakfast for the week. I made my pork sausage and acorn squash hash (recipe on the blog) with deer sausage killed from a co worker. How cool is that? That's extra Paleo in my book. #paleo #jerf #eggs #preparetoplanorplantofail #planahead #army #soldier #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 No lie, this is our conversation with my middle son. Julian (age 4): Joshua (friend at school) is awesome. Me: Why? Julian: He eats chicken bones for lunch. Me: Joshua IS awesome! And now so are you too Julian! This is the 4th week in a row that we grill a lot of chicken breasts (and now per special request, drumsticks). Grilling helps us plan ahead and now we have protein to pack for all our lunches for the week. #thethingspaleokidssay #paleo #paleokids #nutrientseeker #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Has anyone ever tried "commando" style pull ups as an alternate exercise for a rope climb? It simulates the same pull you would do with the rope. I chose this move for today's WOD since I forgot my long socks and I was certainly not in the mood to give myself rope burns up and down my legs. I did 3 pull ups gripping a doubled band for 1 rope climb. #WOD was a 9 minute #AMRAP of 7 OH squats (95/65), 7 bar facing burpees and 1 rope climb (or 3 commando pull ups). My score was 5 + 11. #crossfit #crossfitmama #exercise #fitness #pullup #cfmabry #fitfluential #atx #austin #texas #ourfullplate @fitfluential

 Lunches packed for all my 3 crazy boys in their @lunchbots. Is this the most colorLESS, nutrient-densed food you have ever seen? Organic grilled chicken, @maplehillcreamery grassfed yogurt, eggs, nitrate free turkey, roasted parsnips, puréed cauliflower mashers, cashews, bananas, applesauce and valentines. Oh well! Clearly, someone needs to go grocery shopping to add more color and fresh vegetables. #paleo #paleoish #primal #NOTeatingtherainbow #doingthebestthatican #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate #momof3boys #boymom
 I worked all weekend and I'm pooped. Good thing I had leftover roasted veggies in the fridge to quickly heat up and serve over fried eggs. Lazy person's hash is what that is. Is it Friday yet? #paleo #eggs #startyourdayoffright #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
