Welcome to my 3rd Foodie Penpals Reveal Day!

This month I received a bag full of goodies from Erin, who promptly emailed me to tell me that she was my penpal :) I was super excited because this was Erin's first month participating in the program (I still remember the thrill of my first time!)
I let Erin know about my dietary restrictions (no dairy, meat, gluten, soy, or sugar) and my high raw vegan diet in advance. Erin said "It's going to be an adventure to come up with a package. I am excited to try shopping at a a health food store near my house that I have never been too before!" I just knew she’d find some good stuff to send me.
Take at look at what was inside my goodie bag:
|Lots of delicious treats!!!|
Erin sent me a cute little card and wrote a little something about each of the items she chose for me :)
First, a bag of Mum's Original Organic Culinary Coconut Cacao Nibs. Erin surely knows how much I loooooove coconut and this is a new product that I am definitely in love with!!! The flavor was a delicious concoction of raw cacao and a perfect dusting of coconut sugar. I've been nibbling on them non-stop and adding them to a few of my favorite raw vegan recipes.
|♥ Gluten-free, Vegan, Organic, Raw, Nut-Free, Soy-Free, Kosher, non-GMO|
|I'd never heard of the Mum's Original brand before but it's always nice to find a brand that is 100% devoted to superfoods and organic living.|
"The Taste Tester" was in Cacao Coconut heaven when I presented him with these tasty treats for us to share:
|I can't wait to find out if they carry Mum's Original at my favorite health food store.|
|"The Taste Tester" and I shared this snack and it was soooooo yummy!! Funny, we haven't seen these in the supermarket yet...trust me, we've looked :)|
|So far, I made a Quinoa Cranberry Pecan Salad and it was simply divine!!|
Erin also sent me a few samples of her favorite tea: President's Choice Lemon Thriller herbal tea. This is a wonderful caffeine-free herbal tea with lemongrass and citrus peel. I usually like to add add extra lemon and/or honey to my tea but this particular tea was perfect just the way it is.
|I plan to make a nice refreshing iced tea with the samples I still have left. Mmm!!|
|"The Taste Tester" was so surprised to see these really cool Spiderman stickers!!|
He gives Erin a thumbs up for thinking of him...
|...and he wrote a special thank you note too :) |
With lots and lots of love xoxo
From the both of us
