A few months ago, I got to participate in the first blogger foodie swap hosted by Georgie of In It 4 the Long Run. I got some awesome goodies in the mail and I also got to send a package of some of my favorite snacks to another blogger. You can check the first post out here!
When Georgie mentioned that she was organizing another swap, I jumped at the chance to participate again because I love getting packages + I love food + I love sharing the food I love with other people.
This time, my swap buddy was Rachel from A Healthful Heart. Definitely check out her blog– I enjoyed reading through a bunch of posts to decide what to send her. Rachel’s a group fitness instructor, blogger, fellow food lover, and obviously, a fellow Trader Joe’s lover! Here’s what she sent me:
Trader Joe’s Go Raw Trek Mix– just walnuts, almonds, and raisins. Perfect! Dried Mango Slices– Perfect for a natural sugar pick-me-up during those those tired afternoon slumps. Anyone else get those?Coconut Caramel Dark Chocolate Bar– This was legitimately the best chocolate bar I’ve ever had. I mean, it was super dark chocolate and it filled with coconut caramel…If you have a Trader Joe’s nearby, I highly recommend picking this one up as soon as possible. Grain & Seed Oatmeal– I’m a huge oatmeal lover and I usually stick with the same combo every morning since I don’t get tired of it: 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats, 1 cup of water, a sprinkle of dried fruit, and a splash of almond milk after it comes out of the microwave.
With that being said, I LOVED that Rachel sent me this unique grain and seed oatmeal with oats, quinoa, amaranth, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, flax seeds, and chia seeds, though, because it forced me to break out of my normal oatmeal routine. I don’t mind switching it up at all, but I normally don’t even think about doing it.
Thanks so much, Rachel! If you’d like to see what I sent Rachel, you can check out her post here:
Questions for you:
Is there a food that you can eat almost every day without getting tired of it?
Most foods, actually! Some foods that I do eat almost every day without getting tired of are oatmeal, most fruits and veggies, and dark chocolate.
If you could design your perfect chocolate bar…what type of chocolate would it have? What would the filling be?
