Well these were stupid hard to get a picture of. And I wanted to eat. So I gave up pretty quickly on making the picture look better. My bad. Just trust me that these little wraps are delicious. You’ll never miss sandwich bread again. Or bagels. Gosh I love me a bagel sandwich.

I’m so excited to leave for Austin to Paleofx in 2 days! Paleofx is like a huge paleo family reunion. I haven’t seen some of these people in seriously a year, since the last one. I’m not a huge fan of listening to the panels, probably because I get anxiety about people throwing up their opinions all over the place, so I’ll probably spend most of my time outside of the venue. Meaning in restaurants and hopefully shops. You always have to shop on vacation, right? Right. Anywho, I plan on trying as many restaurants as possible. I had a couple bad experiences last year, so this time I plan on figuring out all my own restaurants. I will absolutely be going to 24 Diner (we already planned lunch/dinner there for our first night) and La Barbecue which is one of the best bbq food trucks I’ve ever come across. Oh, and Jeni’s Ice Cream. Obviously. But that’s all I really have planned. Do you know of any amazing restaurants in Austin, TX?? Please give me all the advice in the world, pretty please!!

Oh duh, I’ll also be going to a CrossFit gym. I think I’ll only go once, mostly because I’d rather pack pretty clothes than workout clothes, but I’m pretty excited to try a new gym! Looks like I’ll be heading to Fortitude Fitness-Crossfit 78702. That’s quite a name. But I heard from someone lovely that they will have a really good workout planned for the weekend, so I’m in. Gotta keep up with my fitness while I’m stuffing my face.

Speaking of CrossFit, I totally forgot to tell you guys. This workout below truly sucked the big one. I like to talk about random super hard workouts so other people can try them that don’t go to my gym, CrossFit Broadway. It was absolutely miserable. I love workouts like that. I wish they came around always once a week. It felt pretty similar to 14.5. Check, check, check, check it out:

4 x 5 min AMRAPS Of: ( 2 min rest between)
400 m Run
then AMRAP Of,
5 Power Snatch (135/95)
12 Pull Ups

Speaking of things that are adorable. Oh wait, I wasn’t talking about adorable things. Who cares, it’s time for Jackson’s close up!! Excuse his birthday suit. He doesn’t understand that we don’t fling those things around at the gym. At least he crossed his legs.

    Some of the best food I’ve ever eaten in Austin! And it has a great atmosphere. The patio is the best, gotta love a good patio!!

      I agree! Moonshine is awesome for atmosphere…so rad at night.

  3. Laurie says:

    lots of opportunities to eat clean or not so clean in Austin and great food is EVERYWHERE. Here are a few where you can stay between the lines if you want to or stray…..

    Crispy brussel sprouts at Snack Bar and Lucky Robot
    Lots of choices at Freedmans
    Wholly Cow over Hopdaddy for burgers
    Perlas and Quality Seafood Mkt should also work pretty well.
    Lamberts always a good call.
    Franklin’s of course.
    Devils on Horseback at Mulberry.
    Contigo
    G’rag Mahal is excellent Indian and it gives you a chance to check on the Rainey Street experience

    P.S. La Barbecue is a good choice–did you know that they moved to the east side?

    and two recent mag posts that with great suggestions:

    I just came across your blog this past week and I LOVE IT! I must admit I am not 100% into the Paleo diet but I am trying to focus on eating more basic food sources and a lot less gluten and processed wheats, etc. I decided to go strick low carb/paleo for the next few weeks since I’m dealing with a hamstring injury and repair treatment that’s keeping me from my workouts (actually from ANY form of physical activity-damn it…it’s so killing me that I can’t lift or run!!!!). I’m also live in San Diego so it’s cool to hear you talk about our City. Lastly…I love your puppy, he is soooo cute. We also adopted a dog recently and I think she’s the cutest thing ever (yes-even cutier than babies) but she also was a handful in the training department. Anyway, I’ve blabbed enough….glad to have found your blog. Have fun in Austin!

    I think you should totally start touring Crossfit gyms – could that be a thing?! Please yes!
    “Coming to a Crossfit near you: Juli and Jackson!”

    Make the next one Crossfit Full Circle in Richmond VA!

  6. Jordan says:

    But the true question on everyone’s mind… what will you do without Jackson for a whole weekend?!

  7. Melissa says:

    Juli- You should most DEFINITELY go to Hopdoddy Burger Bar. Friggin’ fantastic and the line is totally worth it because it passes right by the bar where you can grab your drink, not to mention it takes that long to choose which burger you’ll want. I don’t know if you’re into bloody mary’s but they make one using beet juice (sounds gross but it’s the bomb-diggity) plus I beet juice is great for working out!

    Enjoy and love your blog big time!

    Thanks for being so awesome! I have enjoyed many of the recipes listed here, and this looks like it will be next. Only 8 months Paleo for me, but it has helped in many ways. One request though: more lamb recipes? Thanks so much.

  9. Dani says:

    I would recommend Sweet Ritual for dairy and gluten free ice cream. They also have gluten free ice cream cones..WHAT?! – its basically the best!
