Our Full Plate on Instagram

 After hiking and climbing high rocks all afternoon these boys were ready to roast @Applegate organic beef hotdogs over the campfire. I will admit cooking over campfire is much harder than looks. It was tough to cook everything evenly. We also warmed up the roasted veggies I made earlier today at home. Now it's time to enjoy a non Paleo treat, s'mores, with the big boys while we share knock knock jokes. #thisisthife #Crossesgocamping #family #paleo #notpaleo #notpaleoperfect #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 On the way to the campsite. I packed all our food so we "had" to stop at @pterrys for burgers. #whoneedsanexcusetoeatpterrys #pterrys #grassfedbeef #lettucewrapped #theonlyway #paleo #Crossesgocamping #fitfluential #ourfullplate #atx #austin #texas
 Tacos for days!! #Repost @ourfullplate ・・・ Forget last minute Christmas shopping, we are forfeiting all our urges to buy more materialistic things and putting away all our technology to spend some quality family time while we go camping for two days before Christmas. After dinner, we started preparing meals for the cabin that has electricity but no refrigerator or oven. Tonight I used @mustbnutty Paleo tortillas and made bacon and egg breakfast tacos. I plan to just reheat them over the morning's fire. The boys are beside themselves with excitement. Although cute, my helpers were not so helpful so a glass of wine (or two) were needed to survive. #paleo #paleocamping #jerf #breakfasttacos #tacos #tortillas #family #quailtytime #golocoalorgohome #supportlocalbusinessss #atx #austin #texas #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 More camping prep this morning before head out. I seasoned 4lbs of ground beef with 2 packets of Lipton French Onion Mix (my lazy yet convenient way I season burgers when I'm in a rush) and then after I formed them into patties, I put them all in the freezer. Since there is no fridge, I figure they will thaw out in time in the cooler for dinner. I also roasted some vegetables (sweet potatoes, red onion, and green apples with avocado oil and fresh rosemary) for 30 minutes. My plan is to reheat them over the charcoal for dinner as well. #paleo #paleocamping #family #outdoors #roughinit #fitfluential #ourfullplate

 Back on track. After just one day of overindulging, I spent today catching up and by the evening I was craving lots of veggies. Nothing like fresh veggies, guac and my Paleo crock pot beef fajitas (recipe on the blog) sprinkled with a little KerryGold cheese to wrap up the night. Can't believe it's only 5 days till Christmas. #paleo #jerf #morevegetablesthanavegetarian #eattherainbow #crockpot #slowcooker #fitfluential #ourfullplate
