I know I don’t normally post on Wednesdays, but today is a special day…
It’s Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day!!
This month, I got matched up with Brooke from Brooke Not on a Diet…if you’ve never checked out her blog, definitely do! Having lost over 140 pounds the RIGHT way, she is so much of an inspiration…and such a beauty! 🙂
I was super excited to see the goodies Brooke sent me this month…especially the Mrs. Renfro’s salsa (my absolute favorite one…how did she know?) since I can NEVER find it around here!
It made the PERFECT addition (along with some Greek yogurt) to my
Southwestern Cheessy Egg Cups for breakfast the other day!
And as you saw on yesterday’s WIAW post, the
cobwebs NOODLES were definitely put to good use. I’ve tried them before, but forgot how fun they are…I love the texture!
I debated on saving the hummus packet for whenever I’m traveling, but I couldn’t resist. I’m a total sucker for anything with a sun-dried tomato flavor!
Spinach, TJ’s harvest grain mix, grilled turkey breast, tomatoes, tomato basil almonds and a good drizzle of hummus…
I also adore the teas she picked out! I’ve always liked the Tazo Passionfruit flavor, but the Stash Pomegranate Raspberry was a new one for me and it was SO good…definitely more of a summertime tea as it tasted better iced, but I’ll have to keep that in mind for next year!
Along with my foodie goodies, she also slipped in a bar of all natural tea tree soap from her local farmer’s market.
It smells like Heaven and has actually been helping with some recent breakouts I’ve been getting.
Thank you so much Brooke for my package!
As for MY pen pal match, I was hooked up with blog reader, Pamela. After she told me how much of a chocolate lover she was, I did my best to pack up a box FULL of
Here’s what she had to say about her package:
“This month I received a package from Heather. I got an assortment of bars and and chocolate. My favorite was the justins hazelnutspread. I like it better than my usual go-to nutella. It is a lot healthier and I enjoyed it on top of a banana for a snack. I travel a lot for work and the bars were a good pick-me-up after a flight. I also tried my first spinning class this week and I had one to recover after class. Thanks Heather for introducing me to a ton of products.”
I’m so glad she liked them!
