Product Review: Onnit Trilogy Nut Butter - Walnut Almond Cashew - Raw and Organic

Type of Product: 
Snacks
Summary
Rating: 
5
Pros: 
  • YUM..WOW yum...
  • Organic
  • Raw
  • 3 Ingredients
  • Delicious flavor balance
Cons: 
  • Gone too soon
  • A bit spendy

Onnit sent me a box of goodies for review, This divine Walnut Almond Cashew Trilogy Nut Butter is another one of the items and it is sublime....  It is delicious, too delicious, too wonderful, so good that after you eat it you can just swear that there's some little light rays being emitted from your ears.  Who knew that combining the right ratios of simple raw and organic walnuts, almonds and cashews could create such a sublime snack, especially when paired with crisp, impossibly thin slices of pink lady apples!?  Seriously you must try this.

These simple ingredients are just chock full of healthy fats, minerals, and brain boosting vitamins.  And its one of those snacks that I can just eat and then instantly have that "oh that is what I was supposed to eat just now" feeling.  I hope the same happens for you.

My main complaint is that this is one seriously addictive little 8oz jar... Get your own jar of Onnit Walnut Almond Cashew Trilogy Nut Butter Here!

Down by Twos... a Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout

This is another fun "benchmark" workout that definitely let us all know where we are with our conditioning.   Amusingly, the Primal Move warm up, Convict Conditioning Trifecta, the sequence and then the Primal Move cool down took about 40 minutes.  According to my Armour39, during that 40 minutes, 409 calories were destroyed.  That wasn't the goal, but it does explain why I eat so much sometimes.  Anyhow, here's what happened:

Using Google Maps, I measured out a 30 yard straight run in our park, then grabbed a selection of kettlebells, so there'd be choices!

Onnit Hemp FORCE Vanilla Acai High Protein PowerfoodOnnit.com was generous enough to send me a selection from their incredible edible product line for review.   This is the first of the many reviews which are on the way!

First, you'll be pleased (or maybe disappointed?) to know that this hemp-based high protein superfood concoction is made from non-psychoactive raw hemp seeds.  So, sorry you will have to save your Cheech and Chong jokes for another time.  The container also states that this delicious high protein snack mix shake will not make you fail any employment or athletic testing situations (hurrah!).  Now with that out of the way, lets talk about this food!

Ask GiryaGirl: Why Am I Sliding With Aussie Pull-Ups? Why Are All Your Product Reviews Positive?

Q: Help! My feet keep sliding when I perform Aussie Pull Ups and I need to practice them because I'm planning to attend the PCC and they are a required part of the women's test!!!

A: Hurrah!!!!   I am so glad you are coming to the PCC, and that you are asking me about the women's Century Test.   So far the ladies have been a little under-represented at the PCC and I'm on a personal mission to change that.   I mean.... not going to complain, it's really nice to be in a room full of cool, super fit men, but ladies it's time to step up!  Absolutely PROMISE that we aren't doing 3,023,043 muscle ups over the weekend and of the three PCC Workshops where I've instructed, everyone seems to finds several exercises that they really do very well, and refine further.
