    This is the mango chia pod I bought at woollies. Was a bit expensive though $3.70. If you want to make your own try googling chia pudding.

    I have the Vanilla one. It has no fruit in it

    Carbs are 12g. I need to start making them myself at home. I even have the Chia seeds to use. I need to eat Chia because it is a source of Omega 3 and I have never eaten fish or seafood.

    That said I am trying to keep my carbs to 30-50g per day. That said, I don't have one everyday usually only Thursdays.

    Today was not a good day as I had a chia pod and a pita bread so I have blown my carbs way out and my stomach is noisy as from the grains .

    Oh great idea.

    My porridge is coconut milk, vanilla, salt, shredded coconut, flaxseed meal and almond meal (carbs=13g). I wonder if I could add cream to that.

    But.... I also have a chia pudding recipe which is chia seeds, coconut milk, vanilla and raspberries. I reckon I could put some cream in and use nuts rather than raspberries.

    What is your Chia pudding recipe?

    Thanks for explaining what a chia pod is. They look like they would taste great but too many carbs for me. I try to stick to around 20 g of carbs per day so I can only afford to use up a few grams for breakfast. Ill have to stick to the bacon and eggs for now.

    So I went a bit off track on the weekend, had toast for breakfast and some chocolate yesterday.

    I am determined to stick to low carb this week. I'm starting with eggs for breakfast today.

    I also went off track on the weekend. We went to the local show on Saturday and it was all downhill from there. I have been paying for it overnight though, my stomach has been so noisy and uncomfortable grains really are not kind to me.

    Wish I liked eggs, it would make breakfast time so much easier!

    Good luck this week!

    Just wanted to ask if you ladies are doing lchf on a short term or long term basis?
    I am not strictly doing this more so reducing my portion size of carbs.

    My second bubs is 13 months and I used low carb eating to lose the 15kg of baby weight. At first I cut out the obvious carbs like bread, pasta, chocolate etc and lost heaps of weight doing that. When my weight loss hit a plateau I started looking into low carb diets a bit more and also wrote down the amount of carbs I ate in a day. This lead me to cutting down on dairy (mainly the milk in tea and coffee) as I had not realised how high carb milk is. I started putting 100ml of milk in a little cup in the fridge and used that in my tea and coffee for the day. That tiny amount of milk still has 5g carbs!

    It took me 5 months to lose the 15kg of baby weight and then i lost 2 kg more.

    Over christmas I eased up on the low carb and put 2kg back on. So its back to low carb for me.

    I find I often go off track on the weekends and have to reset myself every monday morning. Today I have had 2 eggs for breakfast, soup for lunch and a boiled egg and some ham for a snack. Dinner will be pork belly.
