Another month, another box of goodies on my doorstep thanks to the Foodie Penpals program!
This month, I received a package from Meme Inge of Living Well Kitchen. Meme is a registered dietitian who does private nutrition counseling. When she asked if I had any special requests, I mentioned healthy snacks, since I’m always looking for new ideas.
Here’s what she sent:
- Snapea Crisps, which taste like a delicious mash-up of green peas and cheese puffs.
- Batches of Thai-spiced almonds and walnuts (and she’s right–they’re addictive).
- A jar of Thai Spice Blend (no sugar, no salt, no MSG) that I can’t wait to try on popcorn, noodles, and veggies.
- Three different snack bars–two store-bought and one she made herself from peanut butter and bananas. It had just the right amount of sweetness, and I loved getting something homemade.
Thank you Meme! I love it. (Or rather, “loved it”, since most of it is already in my belly.)
I was assigned to send a package to a vegan triathlete and competitive runner–three things I am not, so it was a fun challenge. If you’d like to see what I mailed out to her, go here.
