Whole 30 Day 29 - Big satisfying breakfast and avoiding social eating

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 can't believe 29 days passed already. It was a piece of cake!
It turned out to be not so hard to eat a clean diet.

I was at a social event yesterday, at noon, and they served a very nice catered lunch with hummus, salads, falafel, bread of course, puffs, muffins, brownies, cut veggies, cut fruit, dates......etc. There was absolutely no protein (unless you count the falafel and hummus as protein, although nutritionally they are not complete proteins as they lack some of the essential amino acids).

I was a bit distracted, but I was still full from my breakfast. I had the thought of having just cucumbers, but then reminded myself that I was not really hungry and it was not time for my lunch. So I just kept drinking tea. I went home and had my lunch when I was hungry. I did take 2 muffins and brownies for my kids..... wouldn't want them to throw everything away. ;-)

Today for breakfast I had Turkey Bacon, smoked salmon, strawberries, scrambled eggs and cherry tomatoes. YUMMY!!!!! I was full for hours! No wonder I wasn't hungry at the social event. But I learned a lesson about paying attention to WHY I want to eat something.

Stay tuned to my thoughts and accomplishments tomorrow on my last day of the Whole 30.
