 Happy birthday to my amazing Godson and Nephew, @nicholasp0423. He is 16! I'm so proud of the man he has become so athletic, intelligent, hard working and compassionate. He is the boy who I fed cauliflower rice and made him work out with me on families vacations without (minimal) complaining! He lives in New York and wish I could be there to today in person to make you some healthy food! We will celebrate in June!!! Love you Nick! #ourfullplate #family #love #wheredoesthetimego
 My breakfast this morning was enjoyed in the peace and quiet of my own office since it was a little hectic in the morning to get everyone out of the house. Best part about my breakfast was it was not made by me, but my wonderful hubby, @crossweb. Sautéed onions, sweet potato nuked in the microwave (because I needed extra carbs) and leftover pork tenderloin with scrambled eggs and fresh avocado. Happy Hump Day everyone! #ourfullplate #paleo #hashtagpaleo #paleorecipes #paleodiet #glutenfree #primal #healthy #healthyhabits #eathealthy #cleaneats #cleaneating #21dsd #21daysugardetox #detox #yum #caveman #cavediet #jerf #foodisfuel #fitfluential #ffcheckin #breakfast #eggs
 Today was a big day in our house! My pickiest eater, Jackson, ate spaghetti squash!!! It only took him over a year of me serving it day in and day out to get him to like it, but he did it! His brother, Julian, also followed suit! Jackson immediately started reciting Dr Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham saying, "Try them, try them and you may!" after he realized he really liked it. The lesson here is keep putting healthy foods in front of your kids. If you don't make it easily available, they will never eat it and don't get discouraged if it takes you over a year (like in my case) for them to finally eat spaghetti squash noodles, consistency is key. And most importantly DON'T make "other" foods for them. I can't tell you how many times my boys just ate the meat or protein I cooked and did not eat the vegetables. They survived, carnivore or not, and everyday it gets better and better. Stay strong!!! Recipe is on the blog for my yummy homemade ground beef tomato meat sauce (version 2.0). It's delicious!!! #ourfullplate #paleo #hashtagpaleo #paleorecipes #paleodiet #glutenfree #primal #healthy #healthyhabits #eathealthy #cleaneats #cleaneating #21dsd #21daysugardetox #detox #yum #caveman #cavediet #jerf #foodisfuel #fitfluential #ffcheckin #eattherainbow #eatmorevegetablesthanavegetarian
 NEW recipe on the blog tonight...my Paleo Bacon, Cherry Tomato, Basil and Egg Quiche with a spaghetti squash crust. It's amazing and a great way to sneak in more veggies! Great recipe to serve during a fancy weekend brunch or to make ahead on a Sunday and reheat during the busy work week mornings! #ourfullplate #paleo #hashtagpaleo #paleorecipes #paleodiet #glutenfree #primal #healthy #healthyhabits #eathealthy #cleaneats #cleaneating #21dsd #21daysugardetox #detox #yum #caveman #cavediet #jerf #foodisfuel #fitfluential #ffcheckin #eattherainbow #brunch #eggs #eatmorevegetablesthanavegetarian
 Dropped off dinner for a neighbor who just had her third baby. I made my Paleo Crock Pot Pork Tenderloin with Apples and Honey and served it with my Roasted Garlic, Onion and Cauliflower mashers (both recipes are on the blog). These are great recipes to make for a friend or bring to a potluck because they are super easy to prepare and yet so delicious. It's also very kid friendly and does not scream PALEO (so even your nonPaleo friends will be impressed). What's your go-to dish you offer to cook for a family in need? ourfullplate #paleo #hashtagpaleo #paleorecipes #paleodiet #glutenfree #primal #healthy #healthyhabits #eathealthy #cleaneats #cleaneating #yum #caveman #cavediet #jerf #foodisfuel #fitfluential #ffcheckin #crockpot #slowcooker
