January Foodie Pen Pals Reveal Day

Happy Friday! Today's the last weekday before I start my new job! Eek! I'm a little nervous but also super excited. I think it'll make this whole move thing feel more like real life instead of an extended vacation interrupted by painful Ikea furniture building.

Today I'm also excited to be able to share the awesome Foodie Pen Pals package I got this month. 

This was my second time participating in the program, and I was super lucky to be paired with the program's host, Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean fame. Lindsay is one of my favorite health and fitness bloggers, so getting a food package from her was kind of like getting a mix tape from Beyoncé. Seriously, go check out her blog if you haven't yet, she's amazing!.

Her box definitely met all my high expectation! Here's a breakdown of what she sent me:

-Organic pumpkin seeds: I am pretty pepita obsessed and have been throwing these in all my salads and stir frys.
-Pecan Pie LÄRABARs: Ok so all LÄRABARs are pretty good but these are amazing!
-Bragg's organic sprinkle seasoning: Haven't tried this yet but it smells great. Thinking it will be perfect to season my next batch of slow cooker shredded chicken. 
-Bean Good organic bean pasta sauce: This pasta sauce includes blended white beans, upping the protein and fiber content. Sounds weird but it's actually tasty and not bean-y at all!
-Justin's nut butter packs: Perfect for travel.
-Marantha sunflower seed butter: I'd never tried sunflower seed butter before but I love it and now I can't stop eating it!
-Pistachio packs: These were great for healthy snacking during our road trip.

Thanks so much for the generous and delicious package, Lindsay, and for running such an awesome program!

Now excuse me while I go eat some more toast with sunflower butter.
