Last month, while reading Malia’s Self Professed Product Obsessed blog, I saw that she was a Foodie Pen Pal and got all excited. “I enjoy food,” I said to myself. “I also enjoy getting mail. Perhaps I shall look into this.” So I trotted on over to The Lean Green Bean and signed up.
-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!
-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treats! The spending limit is $15. The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!
This was my haul. Isn’t it beautiful?
Maple walnuts, caramelized with flaxseeds and honey-glazed almonds with cranberries and sea salt. These are going to be perfect for when I’m running. Quick energy and yummy protein to boot!
I used to eat these ALL THE TIME when I worked at the health food store. The almond coconut is my absolute favorite. ❤ These are going to be perfect for when I need MORE delicious protein. Perfect, perfect, perfect.
Holy amazeballs, Batman. Tiny packets of nut butter. I can’t decide if I want to put them on something or just squeeze them directly into my mouth. Odds are that I’m going to squeeze them onto apples but I can’t promise that. The most exciting thing about the one in the center is that it’s completely sodium free! The other two weigh in at a weeny 70mg, making them a savory snack without puffy consequences.
