Our Full Plate on Instagram

 "Good enough" is the new standard when it comes to taking pictures of this motley crew. #goodenough #happyindependenceday #4thofjuly #redwhiteandblue #parade #atx #austin #texas #family #brothers #boymom #momof3boys #ourfullplate

 What's for dinner tonight you may ask? Powdered sugar meat?!? No, my boys wish. It's my Crock Pot Paleo Mongolian Beef (recipe on the blog) which my boys love and refer to it as "Honey Beef." I use arrowroot powder (similar consistency to cornstarch) which thickens the sauce. For this batch, I also threw in parsnips in addition to carrots. I usually throw in broccoli too, but I throw it in later in the cooking process so they don't get too smushy. #yum #crockpot #slowcooker #dinner #paleo #jerf #fitfluential #ourfullplate
 Yesterday Ben and I went to Taco Flats, which is a local Austin taco joint that serves not only jalapeño infused margaritas, but they also offer paleo friendly jicama "tortillas." #iaminlove #spicy #paleoheaven #fauxtortillas #genius #lovemycity #austin #atx #texas #paleo #jerf #notpaleoperfect #shhh #ourfullplate
