September Foodie Pen Pals

Hi lovelies! I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend. Thank you for all of your sweet birthday wishes the other day! I had an absolutely amazing birthday and truly feel so extraordinarily blessed to have such wonderful friends! I just got back from LA and had so much fun being reunited with some of my best girlfriends. I’ll be sure to post lots of pictures soon and fill you in on the festivities, but today is the September Foodie Pen Pal reveal day so that takes precedence! I had taken a few months off from Foodie Pen Pals, but decided to sign up again in September and I’m sure glad I did!

This month, I was matched up with Bailey from Rugbygymgirl.blogspot.com. To see the snacky type goodies I sent her, check out her blog! For my box, my pen pal was Rebecca from Becca’s Healthy Living! She is such a sweet girl and it was fun that she really embraced the pen pal experience in addition to just sending goodies. I love that my box was full of such great healthy options and loved that she included an explanation about each item!

Apologies for the grainy iphone pic (though soon my phone pics will not be grainy! But more on that later…). There was so much fun stuff in this box! First of all- I always love receiving bars because they are the perfect grab and go snack for me! I love Clif Mojo bars and was really excited to try my first Nugo bar! I can officially say I am a fan too- I loved the consistency and it tasted delicious while ultimately being extremely satisfying. I was also so excited to receive my first bag of Love Grown Granola! I have been dying to try it for at least a year now and I can say that it is just as delicious as everyone in the blog world makes it out to be! It was also so fun that she sent me some great ingredients for cooking! I have been wanting to buy coconut flour for a long time now but it always slips my mind and now cannot wait to try my hand at some gluten-free muffins or pancakes! I also love the nutritional yeast and will be making kale chips very soon! All of that plus some spicy edamame made this such an amazing box- thank you so much Becca!

If you’d like to join Foodie Pen Pals, check out Lindsay at the Lean Green Bean and sign up! See you Wednesday with a birthday wrap-up post!

  1. I’m so glad you had a wonderful birthday weekend, Emily!! I bet the amazing Foodie Pen Pal loot you received from Becca made it even better! ;) I’ve tried and LOVE everything in your box–especially the coconut flour and Love Grown Granola. (This is a totally random side note, but what is your favorite granola? I’ve actually been meaning to ask you for awhile, but never remember when I swing by here. Have you tried Cafe Fanny granola? It’s made in Berkeley by Alice Waters’ daughter, and although a bit rich, it might be the best I’ve had). I actually just bought that exact same bottle of nutritional yeast tonight because I’m trying to eat more meatless meals this month. I can’t decide how I feel about it–the flavor is really strong, but has this addictingly “nutty cheesiness” that I kinda sorta love. I’m guessing that it’s going to grow and me more and more each day. :)

    I’m looking forward to your birthday recap! <3 xoxo
