Will Run For July Foodie Pen Pals

The Lean Green Bean

I absolutely love finding the laminated card that indicates that I have a package in my mailbox especially when I'm expecting a package from my foodie pen pal!

For this month's foodie pen pal exchange I received a package from Chelsey at Power House Fit Foodie.  If you would like to check out what I sent my foodie pen pal visit Lisa's blog.

Inside I found all kinds of healthy snacks and delicious treats. 

Box of sunshine!

Snacks to eat while digging through my package

interesting flavour

Maple syrup on a stick (ridiculously delicious)

Perfect snack

One can never have enough cinnamon

I see a tea party in my future

Perfect for a morning of running and raw
Thank you so much Chelsey for taking the time to choose many items from your local market! 

Now, don’t you wanna join in the fun?! Here are the Foodie Penpals details:
-On the 5th of every 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 treats! The spending limit is $15. The 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 are 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 Penplas is open to US & Canadian 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.
If you’re interested in participating for August, please CLICK HERE to fill out the participation form and read the terms and conditions.
You must submit your information by August 4th as pairings will be emailed on August 5th! You will receive a confirmation email from Lindsay within 24 hours if you sign up. IF YOU DON’T GET ONE, send her an email!
