May Foodie PenPals






For this month, I was matched up with Gina over at Health, Love and Chocolate and let me say, she did a wonderful job!!!!







 She sent a lot of really great snack foods, which I have to admit I haven't tried a lot of it. Mainly due to the fact that I haven't been working out like I usually do. But these snacks make GREAT pre-workout snack, especially if you are a busy busy on-the-go kinda person like I am!


One of my favorites was the LUNA bar. It was delicious and the perfect size! I'm gonna have to start buying these!

YUMMMMMM!
Probably my favorite in the entire box was the Teriyaki Dried Chicken Breast. SO GOOD! I actually ate it as a snack yesterday when I was sitting in the van with the kids waiting for the rain to subside so we could go tour the farm! Poor kids wanted to have some but I didn't want to share. :) (They didn't starve- they had vanilla wafers... that a squirrel later got into, but that's a different story) It was AMAZING. I have GOT to find these in Colorado. Any ideas? And if not, I'm going to San Francisco in a few weeks and will track them down there and stock up. YAY! :)






My other favorite was the fig bar. When I was a child, my grandma ALWAYS had her cookie jar stocked full of fig newtons and I LOVED them. Sometimes when I miss my grandma (may she rest in peace), I get some and these are the perfect healthier version. Can I get these in Colorado too????



I'll update my opinion of the rest as I try it, but I'm sure I'll love it all as well. :)



One thing that was crazy weird was she sent me Zinc Immune Support. Early Childhood Teachers ALWAYS need that- those kids are ALWAYS getting me sick.... I've had this horrible sore throat/cold for the last 2 weeks . Weird how that works, huh?






Gina was also so sweet to mention my injury and wish me well. Still healing.... slowly but surely.








What a great FPP Box I received!

PS- Colorado people, do you know where I can get this yummy stuff????

  1. I think you can get the fig Bars (at least a 'fun' size of them) at World Market.
