Trim Healthy Mama

Well, today is Day 1. I’ve tried to eat keto for years now. There were great results right before my surgery, but afterward not so much. Now I’m to the point where I’m burned out.

Today my order from Mountain Rose Herbs arrived. It was so fun to look through the box at everything. My original intent for the order was to get supplies to make Nursing Mother Tea. I had a good bit of supply issues when nursing Caleb, so this time, I’m going in armed and ready. Last …
