Whether you workout before work or after work, chances are if you workout outside you'll be working out in the darkness or very dim light.

And one of my major pet peeves is to see runners or walkers or cyclists or really anyone out and about who doesn't make sure that they can be seen.

Because the majority of my workouts are before Hubby goes to work, and usually I'm solo, safety has always been a priority for me. And when I say that I won't run outside in the dark / low light/ fog without my Noxgear, I'm serious.

Nut Butters, Say What?

I like peanut butter. I can't say that I'm obsessed with it like I am ice cream or chocolate, but I don't turn my nose up at it either. And since Lil Man has started eating peanut butter sandwiches (and just 3 weeks ago he wouldn't touch the stuff), we've increased our peanut butter consumption. So when I came across this site (Blind Spot Nut Butters) I was intrigued. Blind Spot Nut Butters is a local company. Here is a little background info taken from their website (http://www.blindspotnutbutters.com/our-story.html)

"In 2012, Troy was diagnosed with Stargardt's Disease, a degenerative retinal condition in which he has lost most of his central vision in one eye and has several blind spots in his better eye.  It has reduced his vision to the point that he is no longer able to work. So, we decided that it was a perfect time to start a new business venture and since we are peanut butter addicts and we were pros at making our own blends, we decided to create custom nut butter blends.  So, we set to work trying out recipes and making blends that we thought were unique and suited our vision for the company. Using Blind Spot in the name is part of that vision...sometimes you need to be blinded to be able to visualize a bigger picture.  We are committed to turning the negative of Troy's disability into a positive for our family's future.  A portion of our profits will always be committed to funding research for retinal conditions like Troy's and we are hopeful that one day a cure will be found."

So after finding out a little more about the company, I was interested in trying out some of their products. I had the opportunity to sample Hazelnut Mocha (a blend of hazelnuts and cashews, seasoned with espresso and cocoa powders) and French Toast (an almond and peanut butter blend with hints of maple, vanilla, and orange.)

Since I'm not a HUGE peanut butter fan, I really wasn't sure what I was getting myself into. I toasted a piece of bread and smeared one half with the Hazelnut Mocha and the other half with French Toast. I kid you not, it was love at first bite. I tried the Hazelnut Mocha first and my first thought was "Wow, this is really good." So I tried the French toast. And I couldn't decide which was better. So I made myself another piece of toast, and tried them again ;) I mean, come on, sometimes it does take more than one taste test to actually get a feel for the product. :) I stopped myself from making a 3rd piece of toast (ha) but I could have easily devoured more of the delicious Nut Butters. I do believe I am a new fan of Blind Spot Nut Butters.

In fact, I like them so much, I'd like to share a jar with a lucky reader. It's that time of the year - pumpkin! So one lucky reader will win a full size jar of Pumpkin Pie Nut Butter. Just enter below to win. The giveaway will end on October 4, 2013 and is open to U.S. residents only. I am excited to share this amazing product with you.
