Trying Almond Butter

Almond Butter:

I've seen tons of other bloggers write about their love for almond butter, and I've always been mildly intrigued. See I'm a huuuuuge PB lover. If I could live off PB I probably would.

But then I saw tons of bloggers talking about how much better almond butter was than peanut butter and I knew I had to give it a try. I picked up a jar at Trader's Joe's last weekend and had been trying to figure out what to test it on.

I settled on some Almond Butter oats.

I nuked the oats while wrestling with the lid on the AB jar.

Once I got it open, I scooped a spoonful on top of the oats.

After mixing it all up, I decided the bowl needed a hint of sweet, so I tossed in a few Trader Joe's mini peanut butter cups.

Overall this was a big success. The chocolate added a nice bit of sweet to the not-so-sweet AB.

Verdict: I liked the AB, but I don't think I'll be swapping it for PB on my PBJs.

Running survey:
About two weeks ago Seth reached out to me and asked me to participate in a survey about my preferences in running gear. He's in the market research phase for a new company. The brand will be focused on fun women's running clothes that will all be made in the United States. If you're a lady and interested in sharing your opinion, you can participate in the survey too.

Weekend Fun:
I'm so looking forward to the weekend because we're throwing my good friend's bachelorette party tomorrow. We're keeping it super low key. It's just my college roommates and one of the bridesmaids. We're doing dinner at Cheesecake Factory (yum) and other activities to be determined depending on the weather forecast. It's going to be a blast and it will be fun to see everyone again!
