Foodie Pen Pals July

The Lean Green Bean

I had to miss June Foodie Pen Pals because I was gone for basically the whole month for work, so I was extra excited for July. My foodie pen pal of the month, Caitlin, didn't disappoint!

I travel all the time for work and I am always looking for yummy, healthy, and portable snacks to take with me since airport food leaves a lot to be desired. The box was packed with perfect travel food, some old favorites and some new things to try.

In my box was:

-Somersaults: crunchy nuggets made with sunflower seeds. My cousin brought a bag of these on our Rome trip and I ate 3/4 of the bag. 
-Dark chocolate bananas: You had me at dark chocolate.
-Cocoa covered almonds: These are one of my favorite snacks ever. Protein, healthy fats, and cocoa!
-Justin's honey peanut butter packet: I love this stuff, but I am too cheap to buy it for myself. Along with a banana, it's a perfect plane breakfast.
-Justin's dark chocolate peanut butter cups: Even better than Reese's. These will probably be gone by tomorrow.
-Lara apple turn-over bar: I love Lara bars, but haven't tried this yet.
-Kind Madagascar Vanilla Almond Bar: This sounds amazing. And Caitlin didn't even know I am going to Madagascar next year!
-Rasberry Fruit Leather- I love these for long runs when I just can't stomach Gu.
-Cliff Tropical Fruit Twist- Ditto above. 
-Perfect Fit Vanilla brown rice protein: I am the most excited about this. I have been trying to add protein powder to my iced coffee and smoothies and I am still looking for one that I love. Hopefully this will be it! 

Once again I have to say that Foodie Pen Pals is one of the best ideas ever. Thanks Lindsay!


  1. That's the next protein I want to try after I finish all my Sunwarrior.

    I love Next organics but haven't tried bananas yet. Looks good!
