September Foodie Pen Pal

The Lean Green Bean
It's Foodie Pen Pal Reveal Day! Lindsey tried something new this month and that was to match the same people together. So, you are giving a present to the same person that is sending the present to you. It's really cool and allows for more interaction between the people.

My pen pal this month was Elise from Utah. We had a lot of back and forth emails about what we liked and disliked and what we do for fun or a living. I don't think I would have gotten that with the pen pals doing it the old way. My first pen pal to send me a gift is a person I still talk to on a regular basis, but I have never heard from the person that I sent a package to after the last email. So, we shall see!

I sent Elise homemade power protein balls to help with her workouts and Sun Butter that Mary sent to me in my first ever package. I also sent her some nutmeg syrup from Grenada. My friend lives there and she always brings me jars. I had plenty and she seemed really interested. 

Elise sent me 16 grain pancake mix, hydro flavored powder to keep me hydrated during long runs/rides, AgaveStix (delish) that are easy to transport, and some wonderful tea with chocolate....that's right, I said TEA WITH CHOCOLATE. I loved it! Pancakes are the only thing I haven't tried yet. She also sent a cute little card. 

Thank you again Elise for a wonderful package from Utah.

If you want to join next month, then visit The Lean Green Bean.


  1. Would love to join, but I'm always off to somewhere for work. Too bad, this seems like a lot of fun!

    1. Well, maybe one day you will get a chance. It is a lot of fun.


Thank you for your comments. I will respond shortly.
