December 2017 Blog Traffic & Income Report Hey there! Gretchen here, reporting on Fit Mom Journey’s traffic and income during December 2017. I wanted to start with a little story…. I’ve been thinking about restarting my StitchFix subscription to update my wardrobe a bit. In the process of getting my account reactivated, Google must have realized that I was looking for a closing subscription service. Over the next couple of days, I started seeing advertisements for a couple of new subscription services: ThirdLove and Dia&Co. ThirdLove is a bra subscription service that claims they’re pieces not only fit better and… Read More
Keto Beef Stew Soups and stews are on of my favorite things about the Ketogenic Diet. My husband is a huge fan of them, and thanks to my InstantPot and Slow Cooker, I find they’re very easy to throw together. Basically all winter long, we eat soups or stews for 4-5 lunches/dinners per week. Matt was a really big fan of this Keto Beef Stew. He’s a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so he was a huge fan of the big chunks of grass-fed beef, tender carrots, and and the perfectly-cooked baby radishes to replace potatoes. The filling flavor… Read More
Ketologie Bone Broth Review For almost a year now, I’ve been seeing bone broth everywhere. On blogs, Instagram, Facebook, and even in stores!

Just the thought of drinking the stuff turned my stomach, so naturally I thought the people hawking… Read More

However, even though this recipe isn’t technically mine, I really want to share it with you. Why? Because it’s the perfect dinner to help with keto flu (high in sodium), it tastes awesome, and recipes don’t get much simpler than this one. Sound good? Then here we go!
7 Health Benefits of Bone Broth Soup Bone Broth has gone mainstream. What started as something you could only find at specialty grocers, or by making your own has turned into an empire. In fact, the last time you bought broth at Walmart or Target, you probably saw bone broth on the shelves right beside the chemical-filled broths. And, if you weren’t familiar with what it was, you probably saw the price tag on that bone broth and didn’t buy it. So why is bone broth popping up everywhere? Simply put, it’s because the health benefits of bone broth are… Read More
Where Are Trim Healthy Mama Basics The Cheapest? I’ve already unveiled my THM Pantry Staples, where I buy them, and how I save money on many THM-approved foods. This is all great, and hopefully helps you, but one thing that I’ve been wondering (for myself) is if the places I’m buying my staples are ACTUALLY the cheapest.
