This month, my foodie package came from Elisabeth, one of the lovely ladies at the fitness blog, CHAARG.

Every product in the box proved she invested great thought and sincerity. Almost all items are 100% vegan! Thanks Elisabeth! Please check out her site, it’s full of zest and inspiration.

 

 

Here’s what I got:

Elisabeth included a personal letter plus a beautiful prose about living in the moment and savoring life’s present blessings.

 

Goodies!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I love each and every item in this box, from the snack to the lotion! My nephew too (who has always been more than excited opening my foodie penpal packages), couldn’t get enough of the snacks and goodies.

 

To see what I’ve sent out, head over to Kristin’s blog, Beauty and My Feast.

 

If you’re interested joining our foodie penpal program, here’s some information from the organizer, Lindsay of The Lean Green Bean:

-On the 5th of the month, you will receive your penpal pairing via email. It will be your responsibility to contact your penpal and get their mailing address and any other information you might need like allergies or dietary restrictions.

-You will have until the 15th of the month to put your box of goodies in the mail. On the last day of the month, you will post about the goodies you received from your penpal!

-The boxes are to be filled with fun foodie things, local food items or even homemade treatsThe spending limit is $15The box must also include something written. This can be anything from a note explaining what’s in the box, to a fun recipe…use your imagination!

-You are responsible for figuring out the best way to ship your items depending on their size and how fragile they are. (Don’t forget about flat rate boxes!)

-Foodie Penpals is open to blog readers as well as bloggers. If you’re a reader and you get paired with a blogger, you can choose to write a short guest post for your penpal to post on their blog about what you received. If two readers are paired together, neither needs to worry about writing a post for that month.

– Foodie Penpals is open to US, Canadian residents & UK residents.  Please note, Canadian Residents will be paired with other Canadians only. We’ve determined things might get too slow and backed up if we’re trying to send foods through customs across the border from US to Canada and vice versa. So, I’m going to keep two separate lists and match US w/ US and Canada w/ Canada!
