August Foodie PenPal reveal!

WooT August is already over????  OK! It is time to reveal who my FoodiePenPal was for this 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 July's FoodiePenPal reveal post click here!

I received my box from Kiersten Pfeifer a fellow SweatPink ambassador from Maine.  Kiersten enjoys all kinds of active stuff such as running, biking, skiing and kayaking.  She is also a big time foodie who loves to cook (like me.) Kiersten is also the blogger behind Twenty-six for a twently-something.
I swear opening these boxes always feels like Christmas to me.  I can honestly say that all of the products Kiersten sent were totally new to us.  Needless to say: I was a happy camper.
From left to right:
Pure Hawaiian Spirulina Pacifica - If you have been following my blog you already know how much I love Spirulina.  However, this particular brand was new to me. ;o)
A cute card!
Blueberry pomegranate granola- Oh so Good!  This is Kiersten favorite trail mix. ;o)
Dark Chocolate Dove Bar
Renys Blueberry Jam
Marshmallow Fluff - My son has been enjoying this so much!

Disclaimer: This isn't my hand.  Christian dove in (no pun intended)  for the chocolate bar and devoured it 5 seconds after this photo was taken. 

So excited to try a different brand of Spirulina!  Already used it on my last green smoothie a few days ago! yummo!
This one is also a goner!  I love the fact that her favorite snack is gluten free and vegan!  I loved this trail mix so much!  So sad it's over...
We have also been enjoying the blueberry jam.  I love that she sent us something local!  Thanks Kiersten!
Another wonderful Foodie PenPal experience this month! Have you signed up yet?  What are you waiting for? 
OOOH!  I almost forgot to mention that I received a thank you card from Stephanie Diaz @ Confessions of a City Eater.  Stephanie was my FoodiePenPal "sent" for the month of August!  It was great cyber meeting you and shopping for you Stephanie! 
Thank you so much for the card Stephanie!  So sweet and thoughtful of you!  Enjoy the sunshine state for me!

I smell me some September... Who's ready for the Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge????


  1. The granola and jam look especially good! Isn't it fun when you are introduced to new items that you have never tried before? (Visiting from Foodie Penpals.)
