July Foodie Pen Pal

Last month I joined the foodie pen pals. It is an interesting program where you are assigned a new pal each month and you send them $15 worth of food and in return you also receive a package (from a different pal). It is fun. Check it out at http://www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/

My pal Melinda (http://www.musingsofthenail.blogspot.com)sent me a whole boat load of fantastic items.

Here is what she sent me:

  • Organic Chocolate Almond bar
  • Yogurt Covered Pretzels
  • Ramen noodles
  • Cappuccino mix
  • Energy bars (2)
  • Energy fruit chews
  • Seaweed snacks
  • Fruit Leather (3)

My wife grabbed the yogurt covered pretzels, an energy bar and the fruit chews and pronounced them great.

I was able to try the seaweed snack (salty and delicious and so light that each sheet melts on your tongue) and the fruit leather (a great refreshing snack after a workout).

Thanks again to Melinda and check out the Foodie Pen Pal program at http://www.theleangreenbean.com/foodie-penpals/.
