First of all, WOW. You’re gonna go berserk over what I am sharing with you today. Secondly, for the past few weeks, I’ve been posting the “Friday Love Note,” which will continue, but I’m refining the Friday series a tiny bit. Every other week, I’ll post a “Friday Fave.” The love note will go out to a person or organization that I admire & feel deserves a loving shout out. “Friday Faves” will be dedicated to a new product or service that I am enjoying & wish to share about. Now that housekeeping is out of the way…let me tell you about my favorite new thing…
JEM Raw Organics. Hello, brand new lover! Last weekend, my buddy Randy paid a visit & showered me with amazing goodies — an autographed copy of his newest cookbook, 2 bottles of Sriracha, some homemade granola, & a jar of the most heavenly thing I’ve ever tasted….JEM Raw Organic Cinnamon Red Maca Almond Butter. Upon first taste, it’s delightful, but as the flavors develop you can really begin to taste the cinnamon spice, & a hint of earthiness from the maca & then it starts to blow you mind! It was, without a doubt, love at first bite. That morning, I made some sprouted wheat toast, schmeared on that buttah, & topped with sliced banana. Perfection. Then I was out the door & on my way to an all-day meditation retreat where I was supposed to spend my entire day in SILENCE. How could I be silent, when all I wanted to do was shout from the rooftops about how delicious this stuff is? I may have perseverated on it a bit when I was supposed to be meditating. I have been experimenting with the many ways of which to enjoy it: on toast, as a dipping sauce for apples, stuffed inside a date (hello!), or frankly straight from the spoon.
Needless to say…it’s been in my pantry less than a week & it’s 3/4 of the way gone, which hasn’t yet reached catastrophe status as, last night, I was gifted a second jar of JEM from my pal Nichole!!! This time it was the Superberry Maqui Camu Almond Butterwhich is just as delightful. Side-by-side, to me, the tastes are similar, with the cinnamon maca being a bit on the warmer/spicier side, while the berry is sweeter & a bit more mild. Both are equally amazing. So let’s talk JEM!
