Simply Delish Pudding for consistency and extra flavor and a dash of Himalayan Pink Salt.
I’m two months in – two months in to no-alcohol, tough workouts three times per week, measuring food and timed eating, early to bed and early to wake up, and I’m feeling better and more focused than I ever have in my entire life.
I’ve nearly cracked about three times:
