The no better joy than getting a foodie penpals package in the mail. I was having a bad day and then my package arrived at my doorsteps.
No complaints about the insides this time either :) Courtney over at Our Ongoing Adventures went above and beyond to not only accommodate my clean eating, but gave me some great little treats.
I will go over a few of my favorite items. First off, she had a few homemade items. These are just the best because they are something you can’t get anywhere else!
Courtney is from Texas so she wanted to make sure I got a taste of the great state! So she made me some homemade salsa - with most of the ingredients harvested in her own backyard!
As you can tell, I got into this quickly. It was the perfect blend of heat, chunkiness, and just pure amazingness.
She also made some homemade apple molassas granola. And since she knew I watch what I eat pretty stricktly, she even included some nutrition information! SO sweet of her.
I loved adding this to greek yogurt and my oatmeal!
Another favorite was a small packet of Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut Butter.
I used this till the last drop. Holy heaven. I put on a rice cake -
And even in greek yogurt with some trail mix she included -
Texas flavored almonds were also one of my favorites. I usually buy raw almonds, so having theses as a healthy treat were super amazing. Mitch ate about half the bag :)
Another perfect thing was these oatmeal squares. I put mine in almond milk. Perfect heaven in a cup.
Also in my box were pinto beans which I have yet to use (anyone have any good ideas?), quinoa which I LOVE, a mini spatula, some coffee, and a few mini lara bars (amazing). Thanks, Courtney. You really had me in mind with this package and I loved every single thing.
I can’t wait till next month :)
