July's FoodiePenPal Reveal!!!

It is the end of July! Which means that it is time to reveal who my FoodiePenPal was for the month! For those who do not know what FoodiePenPal is, it is a program that was created by Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean.  Basically, you get paired up with a person each month to send a healthy food package from anywhere in the US.  To sign up for the program you can click on the text links above or the box to the right for more details.  
To see my June's FoodiePenPal reveal post click here!

I received my box from Emily Morris.  Emily is from Connecticut and works as a Consultant for Colleges.  Subsequently,  she gets to travel all over the US.   She's also the blogger behind the Life on Food where she shares amazing meals and recipes.   

In my box was 3 Namaste Foods meals in minutes packs.  I have never tried anything from this brand so I was excited to have received them.  My son, Chris, keeps asking me to make the pizza mix Emily sent; I'm planning on it very very soon so stay tune for that.  Emily also included an assortment of Trader Joe's Organic Fruit Wraps.  Needless to say, these were gone 5 minutes after this picture was taken.  Delicious! Another new brand for us!  I was happy to finally try something from Trader Joe's since I hear all of you guys raving over their foods on Twitter.  We don't have one here 'o(.  Awesomeness!

  Thanks Emily!

    She also included a hand written note on this adorable card.
Are you a FoodiePenPal?  Can't wait to see what all of you FoodiePenPals received!! TTYS

  3. The pasta looks interesting - no sugar added. Nice! I recently went to a Trader Joe's for the first time myself. Those fruit wraps are delish!

  4. I LOVE Trader Joe's! Unfortunately, the closest one to me is over an hour away...luckily, I have a pretty snazzy little fuel-efficient car, so I get over there now and again. I love the fruit wraps too, but I usually opt for fresh fruit. I'm not familiar with Namaste Foods, but I see that they're GLUTEN FREE and sugar-free, which makes me VERY interested, as I'm GF too (just recently). Let me know how that pasta cooks up!
