As we all know, I am serious about my nut butter.
Recently, I was sent a jar of SunButter Natural Omega 3 to review!
Can you think of anyone more qualified for the job?
I’ve never tried SunButter before, so let’s hear my thoughts on it…
Taste: Sunbutter serves up a strong aroma of roasted nuts as soon as you open the jar. To me, it tasted like a sweeter version of peanut butter. It had that rich, roasted taste that I absolutely love.
Texture: The texture is very similar to natural peanut butter. After a quick stir, it was still a little runny and spreadable. Perfect for toast (or eating wit a spoon).
Price: SunButter is pretty expensive, which is one of the reasons why I have never purchased it. Will I buy it in the future? I have no idea.
Ingredients and Nutrition:
Sunflower Seed, Flaxseed, Dehydrated Cane Juice, Salt, and Natural Mixed Tocopherols to preserve freshness.
The nutritional information is quite similar to most other nut butters, but it does have an extra gram of protein and fiber. It has 4 grams of sugar from the dehydrated cane juice, but that’s not an issue for me.
To me, the highlight was the 461 mg of omega-3’s.
Overall: I thought it was a great product and I really enjoyed it. If you have a peanut allergy, this certainly is a great replacement! It will never be a peanut butter replacement for me, but I will definitely finish off this jar with a smile on my face. If I can it cheap somewhere, I would definitely buy it.
Have you tried SunButter? What were your thoughts?
*SunButter provided me with a free sample of this product to review, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review in return for the free product.*
Since my bike is in the shop getting a tune up, I decided on a run/swim combo this morning. I’m hoping it’s ready this afternoon!
Running: 8.13 miles (all barefoot)
Swimming: 3000 yds
The worst part about swimming in the AM is that I feel like I am going to work. Literally, I am at work. I swim at the same pool that I work at, so it’s actually really weird to be there and not actually “working.”
The perk is that I know everyone and there isn’t any of that awkward “hey he is half naked” kind of stuff
Since the pool doesn’t open until 6:00 AM, I decided to run there and kill some time (remember that I am a nutcase and I wake up around 5:00). To stick with my goal of being able to comfortably run 10 miles barefoot by graduation, I slipped on my Vibrams and I was off.
Everything went really well, but my legs are definitely going to be sore tomorrow! I think it will be a cross training day! I think I am actually due for one of those…
And me weekend has officially started. Yay for not having class on Fridays
What are you up to this weekend?
