We survived Nemo and the #snowpocolypse! I’m hoping to get my long run in today. Fingers crossed it happens. I don’t think I can fathom 12 miles on the treadmill. We’ve all been kind of going NuttZo since being snowed in.
Speaking of going NuttZo…
I recently was sent a jar of NuttZo. I’ve never seen it in any of my local stores but have been dying to try it. After all, I am a nut butter fanatic. I don’t think a day goes by where I don’t have at least one spoonful or three. Peanuts, cashews, almonds, hazelnuts, Brazil nuts, sunflower seeds and flax seeds all combined in one jar with no added sugars, hydrogenated oils? Pure heaven in my mind.
Each bite is full of crunch. I’ve been putting it on and in everything from oatmeal, fresh baked bread, green smoothies, green pancakes and in cookies. It was hard for me to do but I even shared with A and L. I hope they appreciate the sacrifice I made for them. They absolutely loved it! It’s great on everything but I especially like it straight up out of the jar on a spoon. Or a finger. What? Don’t tell me you don’t do the same thing!
The story behind NuttZo is enough to make me love this company even if it didn’t taste fantastic. Danielle, founder and CEO, started NuttZo after wanting to find highly nutrient dense foods for her two adopted sons who were vitamin deficient. In the process she started Project Left Behind to help orphans in need around the world.
How can you not love a company like that? Real food. Real people. Really awesome.
