Whole 30 day 12 - Winging it in a social setting

Hi all,
This is Rina. I have been working with Sophia for the past 6 months trying to spread the word about the wonderful Grass Fed Jerky Chews. I have been eating a pretty clean Paleo/Low Carb diet for the past few years, but still decided to jump right in and try the Whole 30. I'll be blogging daily about my experience for the next 30 days.

I knew I would be out all morning and didn't have time for my morning eggs, so I prepared chia pudding the night before. Chia seeds, almond milk, coconut milk, cocoa powder and almond extract.

It was ok. Not my favorite due to taste and the fact that it isn't really filling for me. 

Got a last minute surprise invite for lunch with family friends, so had to improvise. Stopped at Trader Joe's and bought some hard boiled eggs. Ate 2 right away so I am not famished by the time we actually sit down to eat. 

Hostess tried to push grains, but I told her I don't eat grains and wheat because I am allergic. She still tried to push just a tiny bit. I insisted and stayed away from grains. I am glad I am not that easily tempted or else it would be really hard to resist. In the past, rice and Lavash bread would lead me to a tiny taste and then just a little bit more until I was stuffed. Since I have been grain free several years now, it is like second nature to me. I am not even considering the option!

Luckily for me, they had cabbage salad, fish and veggies. I am sure salad dressing wasn't totally Whole30, but I couldn't do much about it and didn't want to offend my hosts. I am also not sure about their marinade for fish, but still I had it and felt good. I had tons of tea for dessert :-) while the kids and adults stuffed their faces with chocolate, meringue and melon.

At home, I was not super hungry for a while. I did have some coconut butter just because I wanted something, sauerkraut and chicken Apple sausage later on. 

More tea and that was my day.

One more day down in the books.
