I don't think I used to be affected by salt the way I am now. Possibly because I used to eat a lot more salt than I currently do and was more adjusted to it? There have been three instances in the past few months when I woke up with puffy face, eyes, full feeling, gross. And it didn't totally go away until I woke the next day. Well, still unsure about the third time.
Instance #1 - Overindulging of salt at home. Homemade sushi rolls doused in soy sauce, miso soup, and gyoza's, doused in dumpling sauce. The next day I could hardly squint, though I was so puffy, I was almost squinting anyway.
Instance #2 - Red Lobster. I looked up my meal the next day online to see the sodium content, it was well over 2000mg. Disgusting.
Instance #3 - Last night - feta cheese. I ate a lot - maybe 2.5 servings with my eggs, and more while I was chopping it up and cooking. The puffinss is not as severe as the first 2 times, but one of my gf's commented on it this morning - before I even realized. I couldn't figure out why my face felt so tired and stiff.
Does anyone else have problems like this? It's all so new to me. Very frustrating - puffy from feta? Is that even possible?
On to the eats: Breakfast. Back to basics. :) Dorset cereal, blueberries and almond milk. I wish I could thrill you all with the breakfasts I see other blogger eating - beautiful fruity oats, oat breakfast cookies, mixed hot grain cereals...
