It is June 30th! Time to reveal who my FoodiePenPal was for the month of June! For those who do not know what FoodiePenPal is, it is a program that was started by Lindsay from the Lean Green Bean. Basically, you get paired up with a person each month to send a healthy food package to, from anywhere in the US. You can click on the text links above or the box to the right for more details.
I received my package from Jessika, the blogger behind Nohe'a Ola. Jessika lives in Seattle and after exchanging a few emails we shortly discovered how much we both had in common. She enjoys running and juicing like me. We are both pretty new to the blogging world and share the same passion for food, a healthy lifestyle and Hawaii. Heck we even get our organic produce from the same farm (FullCircleFarms.) I was so impressed and surprised with what I got from Jessika, she included a very touching and kind letter that is now part of my inspiration board. I was so happy to be paired up with such an amazing woman. If I am ever in Seattle for a lay-over, Jessika is going to be the first person I will reach out to for a quick jog around the airport. LOL!
Too cute! I had posted that we only get two kinds of LARABAR at my commissary. She was kind enough to send me an assortment of mini LARABARS and a few full size ones that I had never tried before. Of course, Joseph and Chris attacked them before I could get to the blueberry muffin one but, it is all good! She also read about me doing the June Yoga Challenge and sent me a GAIAM Yoga DVD. How cool & thoughtful was that!
It was great cyber meeting Jessika. It was my 1st month trying out the program, and I am very pleased with the experience. Can't wait for my July FoodiePenPal experience!
