Have you tried NuttZo yet?! I don’t know about you, but nut butter is a MAIN staple in my house! This brand happens to be organic and according their website, “The Only Seven Nut and Seed Butter on the planet!”
NuttZo offers 3 different flavors, including Original, Powerfuel, and Chocolate, with 7 nuts & seeds in every jar, in both crunchy and smooth. Here’s a breakdown of the flavors. Graphic is courtesy of NuttZo’s website.
Look at the generous amount of stuff that came in the mailI! I received 1 huge jar (16 oz) with the crunchy Power Fuel flavor and 15 to-go (0.5oz) packets consisting of all 3 flavors!
One of the things that I really like about NuttZo is the ingredients panel. The jar lists: organic cashews, organic almonds, organic brazil nuts, organic flax seeds, organic hazelnuts, organic chia seeds, organic pumpkin seeds, and sea salt. I have a real pet peeve when I see funky scientific words on a label, so you can imagine my elation at seeing REAL words only!!! Now this is a product I can gladly bring into my home and consume with delight!!
So how did I try NuttZo? In many different ways actually! And for more ideas, check out the recipe page on the NuttZo website.
I first tried NuttZo at the gym after 10k run on the treadmill and a 10 minute PiYo stretch session.
The to-go packets are handy, however, I’m really glad that I was near a sink to clean off my hands and my face trying to get the nut butter out of the packet lol. As a result of that experience, I realized that the to-go packets would be more ideal for situations like traveling, camping, and even the overnight Ragnar race. Trying to rip one open during a run and consuming it would prove to be difficult and very MESSY lol! But if you are in a setting where you have the time to knead it with your hands (like the back of the packet suggests) and use a knife to spread it around – then by all means it would be great to have to make your own PB&J on the go (and then you know you can trust the ingredients!).
The next time I tried NuttZo was on a banana after returning home from a run. I made banana “sandwiches” where I had the chunky flavor from the jar spread in-between 2 bite size pieces of banana. I added cinnamon too!
These banana sandwiches were AWESOME. Seriously, look how happy I look in my banana sandwich selfie lol! Another morning, I actually did the same thing as a pre-workout snack instead of a full blown breakfast because I knew I had only a short window of time to fuel my body and get a workout in before going on with the rest of my day. I found it to be a quick and easily digestible snack!
Then on a nice relaxing Saturday morning, I decided to make my 4 Ingredient Paleo Pancakes. The recipe calls for almond butter so I decided to try the chunky flavor from the jar! They came out great!!
Most days of the week I usually make my Shakeology shake first thing in the morning. I added a tablespoon of the chunky Power fuel flavor and with just some frozen banana and my Chocolate Vegan Shakeology, and it came out great! I loved the texture of it!
A quick and healthy dessert that I really enjoy is sliced apples with a dab of almond butter, cinnamon, and honey. I tried the Power Fuel flavor and it was absolutely delicious!
Another yummy breakfast idea is the classic toasted English muffin! I toasted a sprouted grain, Ezekiel muffin and spread the Peruvian Dark Chocolate! Hmmm, good! This also works as a dessert idea too!
