Whole30, day 12 - Eating out & Tide pools
One of the lowest tide of the year in So. California. Awesomeness. To explore the tide pools with the family. I was grateful that I have good health to climb the stairs and good balance to stay upright. Fun to chat, people watch, and warm up cold, cold feet.
I had a snack of half a serving of macadamia nuts without salt. Day 12 of my Whole30. Macadamias keep me full for about 2-3 hours. Good snack until I can make dinner.
I've adjusted to eating out and taking Whole30 compliant snacks with me on the go. I quickly put together the cooked chicken thighs, baby spring mix salad, cucumbers, tomatoes and avocados. I put balsamic vinegar and olive oil in a small container. I had no problem telling the waitress I was "on a special diet", ordering a cup of coffee and eating my meal in the restaurant with my non-paleo family member. Didn't phase me a bit. I've arrived!
