Drop an FBOMB – FBOMB Nut Butter Review

I am always on a search for snacks, especially portable snacks since I work three different jobs and I am always on the go.  Being constantly on the move, running from job to job, place to place, I need snacks that are healthy and easy to eat. And now that I have a baby, I feel like time moves a lot differently. One second, I’ll be feeding my little one and the next thing I know, I need to rush out the door wondering how it got to be that time! Having easy to grab, healthym portable snacks is a must in my life right now.

By being a BibRave Pro, I got the chance to test the FBOMB Macadamia Nut butters in the packet form. I was excited to try these nut butters and see how they’d fit into my daily life. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter (I mean, peanut butter is life!), but a giant jar isn’t exactly convenient to travel with. I also have never tried macadamia nut butter and was curious about the taste.

What I liked about FBOMB’s Nut Butters:
-Taste! My favorite from variety pack is the Salted Chocolate Macadamia Nut Butter.
-Convenient! I loved how handy the packets were to throw in my lunch box, the diaper bag, the front seat of the car…..
-Healthy! They are high in GOOD fat which is necessary for proper body function and the absorption of vitamins.
-Pure Ingredients! All that’s in the Macadamia with Sea Salt packet is “dry roasted macadamia nuts, sea salt.” That’s it.

What I didn’t like:
-These are a little bit runnier than other nut butters that I’m used to – even with ample kneading of the packet. While eating straight from the packet, it’s fine, but if you like to eat it with an apple, for example, it can get a little messy, especially if you’re just trying to have a quick snack on the go!

The FBOMB nutter butters are perfect for everyday life. I kept them in my lunch bag, the diaper bag and in my car, just in case I needed a snack on the go. They are great for the middle of the night, while breastfeeding, snack as well!

Tuesday Newsday 3/11 is late – just like my assignments!

JUST KIDDING! I actually haven’t turned in anything late – lately. ; )

Ok, ok. I for real haven’t turned in anything late. I’ve just been finishing things right up until the last minute! PHEW. I’ve been so busy lately, it’s quite ridiculous. Although, I have one less job, so you would think I would have more free time, but I’ve just filled it with other obligations that I wasn’t able to attend to before.

So, the reason that Tuesday Newsday is late is just due to the fact that I’ve had homework assignments and a tests due almost every day in the last couple of weeks. Luckily, next monday is our Semester one final, and the following monday is SPRING BREAK!!!

Ah, spring break!

Also, I’ve still been reading everyone’s blogs, I just haven’t been as active/talkative on them as usual. I’m still listening; I still love you all and your blogs.

I feel like I’m just randomly spitting my thoughts out at you all…but that’s pretty much how my brain has been working this week.

vermont city marathon logoTraining for the last week was alright…not to bad but not the greatest.

Monday: Rest Day. I tried kickboxing class this day. And LOVED it. It’s a different type of workout that really made me feel powerful. In addition, I had a push day for strength training at school.

Tuesday: 4 miles. But I only got out half a mile. I didn’t feel “right” this day. It’s kinda hard to explain, but basically my heart felt weird – not in a scary way, I was just really aware of my heart beat while running, more than normal with high intensity. Anyway, I decided to rest.

Wednesday: 7 miles. I ran 3 miles at the gym. Leg day at school.

Thursday: 4 miles. I did 4.25 miles at work.

Friday: Rest Day. I was supposed to train with one of the trainers at work; to get a feel for the process, but he “cancelled” on me. I was slightly disappointed but I used my lunch to rest instead. The lack of sleep was seriously creeping up on me. This was also my last day at Dick’s Sporting Goods and I will miss some of my co-workers, and the perks from working in running shoes.

Saturday: Rest-ish day. I drove all over that day; helped my mom pick out her wedding dress, took a test, and celebrated a friend’s bday.

Sunday. 14 miles. I actually ended up doing 15.45. Woops. I usually run with my phone and MapMyRun, but on runs longer than 10 miles, it dies. So, I pre-mapped it at home. Wrote on my hand where I needed to turn around. Headed out the door.

Ironically, training called for a 14 mile plan. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that is when I felt extremely exhausted and felt tight and couldn’t go on. After re-mapping my course when I got home, I discovered that I ran slightly past the turn around point and ran 1.45 miles over. Sweet. I’m right on track.
