Whole 30 Day 14 - Exploring snacks

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 was busy all morning, so had my usual eggs with avocado and veggies at noon.  Had some raspberries. Snacked a bit during the day on some nuts, coconut butter and coconut flakes, had tea with almond milk. 

For dinner, leftover chicken, steamed cauliflower and broccoli with my fresh made BBQ sauce (made a new batch quickly yesterday for dinner).

I am feeling pretty good. This is totally sustainable way of living for me. I am not missing anything. Chocolate is not included in Whole 30, but once I finish the 30 days, I will try 100% chocolate. Not the one used for baking, it is very bitter. Here are a few brands I have tried before going on the program, and since they are not sweet, I tend to eat just a square or 2 to satisfy my chocolate craving. 

Francois Pralus Le 100% Criollo, The Grenada Chocolate and Domori. The last one is not my favorite but the first two are great. The only problem is that they are pricey! Nearly $10 each!

My favorite treat is beef jerky from Sophia's Survival Food

I wish I was not on the run so much.... :-) but that's how life is these days. 

Before I started the Whole 30, my most common snack on the go was Quest bar, they were convenient and cheaper, but seems like I am doing much better without them. No acne and cravings. I think that after I complete Whole 30, I will not go back to them and just stick with Grass Fed Jerky Chews.
