AB 4 U

Hiiiii 😀 How are ya? Hope you’re having a lovely evening so far <3 So glad ya’ll liked this week’s Fashion Friday choice!

Today has been BUSY. I had a boatload of training appointments and the pilot came home to see me for lunch 🙂

Random snackage:



(I CANNOT. FREAKING.WAIT to get my hands on the new flavors! Cookie Dough will rock my world, I just know it)

Lentil soup (Amy’s brand)


Massive chocolate-berry-spirulina smoothie:




Maranatha was so kind to send me some almond butter to *review* on the blog, even though we all know how much I love it. I love all almond butter- I don’t discriminate 😉 They also sent sunflower seed butter and Dark Chocolate Peanut spread (which looks like frosting, which is ok with me) 😀

See those coupons at the bottom of the pic?

Those are for a lucky winner.


One almond-butter lovin’ Fitnessista will win 3 coupons – each coupon is for any size jar of Maranatha product

To make things even more fun, I’ll throw in a batch of my vegan almond butter chocolate chip cookies

Winner will be announced Sunday morning (7/18) when I wake up.

Ready… set… go!

    LOVE almond butter on a fresh and warm muffin – preferably one with lots of dried fruit and nuts!

  2. Nayeli on July 17, 2010 at 11:42 pm

    An almond butter sandwich is delicious!

  3. fluxes on July 17, 2010 at 11:50 pm

    I mix it with a bit of greek yogurt (to a whipped mousse-like consistency) and top it off with yummy granola (which usually has cashews or more almonds)….right out of the jar….and sometimes I make a spicy sauce for stir fry. (my favourite butter is cashew almond butter)

    I enjoy 2 spoonfuls of Almond butter with semi-sweet morsels. It is my evening treat. Yum!

  5. Jen on July 18, 2010 at 12:04 am

    on a spoon 🙂

  6. Courtney on July 18, 2010 at 12:09 am

    I love almond butter straight up, but I also love it on my pancakes or on an apple!

  7. Brandie on July 18, 2010 at 12:14 am

    I like mine on a banana!

  8. Melissa on July 18, 2010 at 12:18 am

    I love to dip apples in almond butter, or drizzle it on top of a bowl of cut up peaches! An almond butter sandwich is always satisfying too! 🙂

  9. Samantha on July 18, 2010 at 12:26 am

    definitely straight from the jar on a spoon!

  10. Lauren on July 18, 2010 at 1:27 am

    I also love it straight out of the jar!

  11. melissa @ a lambs tail on July 18, 2010 at 1:31 am

    on toast, in cookies, on fruit, out of the jar….anything!

  12. jenna on July 18, 2010 at 1:37 am

    All up on my sprouted bread…toasted. 🙂 Get in my belly!!

  13. Emily on July 18, 2010 at 1:39 am

    My favorite use of almond butter is swirling it into oatmeal with fresh fruit and yogurt.

  14. Allison on July 18, 2010 at 1:50 am

    Vanilla Yogurt, Sliced Banana, Chocolate Granola, and MARANATHA CREAMY NO-STIR ALMOND BUTTAH! 🙂 My favorite snack EVERRRRR. 🙂

  15. Stephanie on July 18, 2010 at 2:05 am

    Almond butter, love it in big drops on banana wheel slices and in chocolate banana smoothies.
    Chocolate almond butter, love it on waffles and right off the spoon!

  16. Hilary on July 18, 2010 at 2:14 am

    I’ve yet to meet an apple or banana that didn’t look (and taste) fabulous when dolled up in some almond butter. Add some millet bread to that (or fresh whole wheat, when I get my baking shoes on) and that’s one snack that’s dressed to kill.

  17. Jill on July 18, 2010 at 2:57 am

    almond butter + medjool dates = heaven

  18. Mary @ What's Cookin' with Mary on July 18, 2010 at 3:08 am

    on a yogurt mess 😉

  19. Betsy on July 18, 2010 at 3:40 am

    i loooove my almond buttah slathered on some hot toast with some sweet honey and a half sliced banana! whoa!

  20. Krista on July 18, 2010 at 5:53 am

    straight up with honey!

  21. KG on July 18, 2010 at 6:56 am

    Definitely straight up although mixed it with a little maple syrup the other day and it was HEAVENLY!!!

  22. Shannon on July 18, 2010 at 8:16 am

    I love it in oatmeal! Love the soft texture as it caramelizes in the hot bowl. 🙂 Yum!

  23. Morgan M on July 18, 2010 at 8:26 am


  24. Laura on July 18, 2010 at 9:12 am

    On millet toast!

  25. Lizzie on July 18, 2010 at 9:13 am

    Me again… I tried the cookie dough Lara bar. AMAZING. You will love it!!

  26. Coley on July 18, 2010 at 10:25 am

    First just let me say that the cookie dough larabar is AMAZING! There is also peanut butter brownie! OMG! SOOO DELICIOUS!

    Oh that note, I just made an AB and banana crepe from your recipe and it rocked my world:) That may be my new favorite way to use AB.

  27. Minna on July 18, 2010 at 10:28 am

    with raisins 🙂

  28. Lois on July 18, 2010 at 10:28 am

    Almond Butter! I start drooling just thinking of it. Out of the jar works for me. But when feeling more civilized, I like to slather it on a toasted multigrain bagel…. mmmm

  29. Cathy on July 18, 2010 at 10:38 am

    on a banana!

  30. Emily on July 18, 2010 at 10:38 am

    On a potato roll!

  31. Gennie on July 18, 2010 at 10:59 am

    On a celery!

  32. katie r on July 18, 2010 at 11:12 am

    I love AB on millet toast with strawberry jam!

  33. Sana on July 18, 2010 at 11:32 am
