Getting my foodie penpal package in the mail is definitely one of my favorite fun things to receive each month. And once again, I was completely spoiled!
Lauren at Lawfully Wedded Wife sent me a package this month. I told her that I’m a member of Tone It Up and being a member herself, she absolutely rocked it! From the healthy ingredients to make my lean, clean, and green meals, to the yummy little bites, I couldn’t have asked for more. (Nathan jumped in on the food action this month, too!)
Left to right: Organic Spelt Sourdough Pretzels, Soba Noodles, Peach Preserves, Chick Pea Flour, Chocolate Covered Almonds, Unsweetened Banana Chips, Whole Wheat Flour, Wasabi Flavored Nori Chips, May’s Unique Vinagrette, Homemade Whole Wheat Pasta
So far, my favorite item has to be the banana chips. I’ve never had unsweetened banana chips before, in fact, I never realized that others were sweetened! These chips have gone into my oatmeal, protein cookies, and also dipped into a little peanut butter for a snack 😉
I also love the May’s Unique Vinaigrette! I have salads all the time for lunch, so this is a nice, new way to dress them up.
The peach preserves have also been thoroughly enjoyed! Homemade peach frozen yogurt quickly appeared.. and then disappeared even faster! Recipe coming soon, so check back!
I haven’t been doing much baking lately, but I’m super excited to use the chick pea flour to make a pizza crust! Nathan is a huge pizza eater, so I’m always looking for fun new ways to make it healthier and I’ve seen chick pea dough recipes all over the internet. Soon enough I’ll be eating my healthy pizza 🙂
Like I said, I was completely spoiled. And I love that so many of these ingredients came from Lauren’s local farmers’ market! It definitely made me want to take a closer look at my market next time I go. But in the meantime, I can’t wait to enjoy the rest of my goodies! 🙂
Thanks again, Lauren!!
