Pretty neat experience.  Joined FoodiePenpals and was matched up with Lindsey (@simplyshep) and Jill @eatingpath2yoga (my recipient).  Patiently awaited the arrival of this mysterious package.  Invited my sister over the day that I opened it up….so exciting!  Here are a few photos of my April gifts.  Lindsey sent me some pretty healthy snacks!

Great assortment of sweet and savory. Chocolate granola which I have yet to try, peanut butter fudge which I immediately downed, irish oats, justin's and....

Produce bags and pepper jelly! The bags are an awesome idea and that pepper jelly...well that will come to very good use this weekend. We're hosting a cinco de mayo party and I'm thinking of making a pepper jelly dip with either creme fraiche or cream cheese.

I also got a pretty great recipe from Lindsey.  So cute.

Lindsey’s Oatmeal Recipe:

1/3 cup rolled oats

2/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 scoop fresh cinnamon roll protein powder
1 tbsp psyllium
1 tbsp ground flaxseed
1/2 cup nonfat, plain greek yogurt
1/2 packet stevia
1 tbsp fresh ground almond butter
fresh fruit
cinnamon 
 
Stir it all up, stick it in the refrigerator, and let it sit overnight. In the morning, just take it out and eat it. It’s so so good!! You’ll have to give it a shot! 🙂
few more pictures of my goodies:

Nice idea! Can't wait to use them on Friday when I go to the market.

this was gone in minutes. sending something to a chubby chick is a happy disaster. 🙂

 

Can’t wait to find out who my May foodiePenpals will be 🙂
