Before the reivew, I have to share some food fotos. Here is an awesome food combination I recently discovered: cooked beats and cold cottage cheese! Ok, it may not sound too spectacular, but I love it :-). Here's a pic:
Don't knock it 'til you try it :-).
Some banana soft serve with homemade nut butter mixed in:
Yeah, it looks like a pile o' mud or something, but it's quite tasty with only 2 ingredients: frozen banana and nut butter.
Here's a wonderful shrimp salad with capers that I had a couple days ago. It was fantastic!
SPIbelt stands for Small Personal Item Belt. They offer a variety of belts that you can see here. I was sent a complimentary SPIbelt to review on my blog for you all. This is the type I was sent, and here's a pic of the exact one I got in Pink Plaid (many more colors and patterns are available!):
10 of 10! This is perfect to carry my cell phone and keys while I run or even walk. Before I would tie my key to my shoe lace and just not carry my cell phone - I like this option much better :-). Don't be deceived by how small the pouch looks - it expands and can easily carry a blackberrry or iPod. The pouch is very secure too - no bouncing, etc. So check out SPIbelt if you've been looking for something to carry small items while you exercise - there's even a water resistant SPIbelt!

Have a wonderful first week of August! Where did the summer go???
