Foodie Pen Pals: Michigan to New York
What a better way to celebrate one of the most important days of my life than receiving and divulging in my first foodie pen pal package. My name is Jessi, I’m a fresh out of the oven Registered Dietitian, as of June 27th, 2013, living on the beautiful West side of Michigan. I discovered the foodie pen pal program through my work with the owners of Aroundtheplate.org. I was paired with Mabel from New York and she hit the nail on the head with my goodies!
Inside I got sweet potato chips (bag is pictured empty…someone got hungry after their RD exam), power packed Larabars, calming tea, trail mix, pumpkin pie spice (YUM!), trail mix and my favorite, 60% Cocoa organic dark chocolate. I’m trying to nibble away at the chocolate as I sip some champagne and wind down from this long day. Mabel, thank you so much for such a great foodie pen pal experience!
Wishing you, Mabel, your followers, other foodie pen pals and foodie gurus a beautiful weekend from the Great Lakes region.
P.s. Not pictured: a pumpkin Larabar that gave me a boost of energy right before my examination. It didn’t prevent the nerves but it did calm them!
