Foodie Penpals

In case you didn't know, I'm a huge twitter lovah/geek/weirdo whatevah. It connects me with so many wonderful people I have yet to meet, and the health/wellness community there is especially rich. So when I saw Lindsey-another dietetic intern, posting about her newest project-Foodie Penpals I had to investigate further.

When I was younger I actually had quite a few penpals. LinkUnfortunately we lost touch past the age of 11 or so, but I quite enjoyed writing back and forth, and sending fun things like Liz Frank stickers. (Yes I had a stamp, barbie AND sticker collection. be jealous). I've also always loved giving people presents-i adore birthdays, and would most of the time rather buy something for a friend than myself. Oh and in case you didn't know, I love food. So basically I HAD to join Foodie Penpals.

The basics- 100+ blog readers and writers get together and are matched to send each other packages. The spending limit is $15, which won't break the bank-and remember you get a hand-picked package too. Beyond worth it.

This was my first "match" and Lindsey herself sent me a fantastic foodie present from Ohio.

First- DELICIOUS 100% whole grain crackers and TOFU noodles from a local bakery. very impressed.

second: delicious whole grains that I adore: homemade muesli, wheat berries and millet

Third; The much adored barney butter and pure organic bar-mmmmmm. As well as an assortment of health magazines and an adorable note!

Thank you Lindsey! I loved it all and can't wait to be on board in February too!

I know you want in on the fun too. Email Lindsey (theleangreenbean@gmail.com) and join the party in February!

We would have been amazing penpals as I also boasted an extensive Lisa Frank collection. I actually had a case for all my stickers.
