This is my own personal cause & for those that don't have one, they may want to think about donating to one of the Sarcoma
Foundations below. My mother passed away from a rare form of cancer called Lipsarcoma. It is one of about 50 subtypes of sarcomas that affect all age groups from the youngest to the oldest. It is a
"a cancer that begins in the muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissue of the body". There is no cure & funding is low because of its rarity. As some of you may know,
the rarer the form of cancer, the less money that is usually allocated to it by the larger organizations or the NIH (National Health Institute) as well as fewer people donate because they just don't
know about it. This cancer just keeps coming back, grows back where it already was & spreads to other areas as well. You can learn more about it at these links.
Truth2BeingFit.com: Product Sightings - Protein Water & PB2 Alternative
Product Sightings - Protein Water & PB2 Alternative
Friday August 31, 2012
First off, a very very HAPPY BDAY to my dear friend Reid today! Most recent pic above from last August. He lives in Spain but is in China for a year for a job. I worked for him years ago & we stayed friends. Miss you!!!!
I saw these products below a while ago & just getting to write about them. Found them interesting & hope you do too!
1. The first one, Just Great Stuff Organic Powdered Peanut Butter, the alternative to PB2 is a newer product I saw on a local health food store shelf. It is more expensive but I was curious because it was organic & it used coconut sugar rather than regular sugar. Yes, sugar is sugar but "supposedly" coconut sugar has better properties. I leave this up to the food people in the know out there - let me hear your thoughts on this. Ingredients are Organic Peanuts, Organic Coconut Sugar*, Sea Salt. Nutritional stats are just about the same except 2g of sugar vs. 1g with PB2. They also have a chocolate PB version. I also see some other products I want to find & try too!!!
My thoughts - LOVED IT!!!! I actually like it better than PB2. Now to be fair, it has been a while since I had some PB2 but I recall needing to acquire a taste for it. Some how I did like this right away. Not sure if it is the coconut sugar that makes it taste a bit different. Now, I eat low sodium so it was a bit salty for me but I found that with PB2 as well... even though the sodium per serving is not that bad - it is a tad less for this product. Check out the site & here is their store finder. The store I got mine at was not even on there so maybe ask or look at your local store just in case it is there but not on their store finder.
I first saw these at Whole Foods. They were having a testing of them one day while I was browsing all the cool stuff there. I tasted the Spartos
Sugar Free Grape + Lemonade and Jackfruit + Watermelon.Both were really good!!! I was pleasantly surprised. Each bottle has 2 servings so be aware of that. I would definitely buy again! They are on Twitter at @beSpartos.
There is a sugar version that would be good for my hubby or some of you that may prefer that for before your workout.
I drank mine (sugar free) after and/or in the day. I really can't decide which flavor I liked best... maybe the grape one but both were good to me. The sugar free nutritional stats & ingredients below:
For those interested, here is the info for the sugar version below. As always, it is up to you what you decide to eat & drink. Again, 2 servings per bottle:
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend & an extra day off for those of you that get that too!
