Whole 30 Day 8 - Chia seeds

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. 

Today I had chia pudding for breakfast. It is very easy to make.

I soaked chia seeds the night before in coconut milk. It was my first time preparing chia seeds. Turned out it was not very filling. It isn't my favorite. 

For lunch I had 2 chicken drumsticks with soup for lunch and was still hungry so I ate seasnax with 1/2 avocado. 

Around 4 I was still hungry, so had 4 links of Applegate chicken apple sausage. I still wanted to eat but didn't have time. 

Dinner -  I am making ground bison with kelp noodles and babaganush (eggplant with tahini, recipe from Wellfed). 


I feel my pants getting roomier. 

My acne has cleared (I suffer from hormonal acne on my chin). I am suspecting Quest bars or perhaps the whey protein specifically in causing my acne/breakouts few weeks ago. It will be interesting to see how my body will respond to heavy whipping cream, Greek yogurt, cream cheese and mozzarella after I complete the Whole 30. I wonder if and how dairy affects me. I suspect that Quest bar is probably OK for me once or twice a week, but not daily. I sure like those quest bars, I like eating them slowly in small bites and they keep me quite full while satisfying my sweet tooth. 

I am experiencing more energy. I am not as tired in the evenings but am still finding it hard to wake up in the morning.
