Foodie Pen Pal Reveal

The Lean Green Bean

Yay for Foodie Pen Pals & Yay for Lindsay who makes the whole thing possible (seriously, the amount of organization that goes into these shenanigans is mind-boggling).

Seriously, though, thank goodness for these boxes of goodness that arrive at my doorstep.  My partner, Becki, did such a good job with my package and was especially amazing given my Paleo diet!  She researched foods and ingredients and the end result was a box filled with delicious and new foods – some I’d never tried before!

A really sweet letter that thoughtfully explained all the foods


Really, really good local beef jerky!  I love me some dried meat and this did not disappoint.  I tore it open and ate it right away!  It’s great because I’m need healthy protein sources to snack on in school and eggs kind of wreak havoc in the middle of classes.


Barney’s Almond Butter – I was actually really excited to get this because I’ve never tried Barney Butter and I’ve heard great things.  Plus, doing the whole Paleo thing has cut out Peanut Butter so I’m always looking for alternatives.  005

Kale Chips – these were sooooo good!  I’ve never really liked the taste of cheese but these were made with Nutritional Yeast and I do love that yeast-y flavor!  Plus, “Vampire Killer” … I have eaten roasted garlic straight up with nothing else.  This stuff was gone in days.


Raw Rev mini-bars – I really like the Raw Rev company and I’ve previously reviewed their products so I was happy to get some more!  They’re great for when I’m working long catering shifts and need some energy quick!


Again, thank you so much, Becki and Lindsay!  And check out Rachel’s post to see what I sent my Foodie Pen Pal!
