I’m excited to share my box of goods from Taylor, a student at Ohio State who is all about fitness and nutrition.
Foodie Penpal was created by Lindsey at The Lean Green Bean to connect food lovers with others who love to receive goodies via postal mail. Since creation in September of 2011, thousands of people are paired up each month to send each other food items and handwritten notes.
When our Foodie Penpal matches were made, I decided to take a peek at who would be sending me a box. Taylor’s blog gives me a whole new perspective on how fit food can be just as tasty as it is good for you.
Here’s the lovely box I received from Taylor:
Chicken Tortilla Soup – I have to admit that I’ve never given this soup a chance before. So glad that I have a way to try it without cooking up a recipe myself!
Peach and Mango Salsa – We keep tortilla chips on hand for late night snacking. Can’t wait to try this sweet and spicy salsa!
Peanut Butter Cookie LUNA bars – Another one of my staples that I keep in my snack drawer at work. These can keep hunger away so I can focus and not sit there looking out at the McDonalds across the street.
Green Tea Blueberry Slim Life from Yogi – Energizing and suppressing appetite, I’ve already tried a few cups of this tea and I can vouch for its marketing. It’s also got a great flavor but isn’t overpowering or too sweet.
Skinny Dippers, Flax and Honey from Ozery Bakery – I’m a big fan of thin crackers like these!
I LOVE my box from Taylor. When we talked about likes and dislikes, I mentioned that I wasn’t a big sweets person, and I appreciate how she threw in these savory treats that are just as exciting. Taylor’s personality shines through in this box – I hope she received something of equal awesomeness from her penpal!
