August Foodie Pen Pals Reveal

And once again, the last of the month has snuck up on me. I was going to finally re-cap my first 5K, The Color Run, which I ran on Saturday, but instead Foodie Pen Pals is going first!

The Lean Green Bean

My box this month came from Mariell from HealthyPantz, who is a fellow New Yorker. I actually met Mariell and her brave hubby (he was the only guy there) a few months ago at the Fitness Cell event, small world! I was super excited when the package arrived on my doorstep so I cracked it open right away.

Yumminess ensued!

I actually got the package just a few days before we left for Virginia, so a lot of these goodies were consumed on our ride there. Can you say perfect healthy road trip snacks!

  • Snap Pea Crisps
  • Trader Joe’s Seaweed Snacks
  • Trader Joe’s Nothing But Flattened Bananas
  • Lara Bars
  • Luna Bars
  • Kind Bar
  • Health Warrior Bars
  • Some yummy tea (which are coming in handy to help ward off this lingering sore throat!)

As if the snacks were not enough, Mariell also threw in an EOS lip balm – one of my fav lip products ever and a Kiss my Face Soap!

And I’m not the only one who enjoyed the snackage. Munchkin was a huge fan of the flattened bananas. Those babies are becoming a staple on our trips to Trader Joe’s.

If you want to join in on the Foodie Pen Pal fun, go visit Lindsey, The Lean Green Bean, and fill out a form before the 4th! You won’t regret it!

What’s your favorite road trip snack?

  1. Yum! Looks like a lot of goodies were packed into the box. The flattened bananas look delicious. Have always seen chips/slices, but not the entire lengths of bananas. (Visiting from Foodie Penpals.)

  2. My nearly-6yo and I love those crispy seaweed snacks! I think I sent some of those to a Foodie Penpal a few months ago, too. Looks like you got a tasty box of treats.

    I’d love to hear your Color Run recap, too. I missed the Boston-area run this year, but other runner-bloggers I follow have done them and they seem like a blast.

  4. it looks like you got some great stuff! I’m afraid if I joined that I would be overjoyed but my pal would be sadly disappointed; there are no natural food stores around here. :'(

  5. What a delicious package! I’m adding Eos lip balm to my next shopping list–I’ve heard great things about it! And what a great idea to include a little non-foodie treat.

    Our go-to road trip snacks include a cooler packed with fresh fruit, energy bars (love cherry pie larabars) and nuts.

  6. What a great package! I’ve never tried those snap pea crisps but I’ve heard a lot of great things about them. :)

    Have a great weekend!
