May Foodie Penpal

Apologies in advance as these pictures are awful! It was dark and I was excited to eat stuff and….ok I’ve got no more excuses, I just wanted to stuff my face with it! πŸ™‚

This month I was paired with the lovely MarieΒ from the East Midlands πŸ™‚ she must have got right inside my head because the parcel she sent me was just perfect! Every single thing in it was just ‘me.’ πŸ˜€

I was sending my parcel all the way over to Germany this month to Pia. I sent her lots of lovely goodies that she can’t get in Germany πŸ˜› (lots of cheeky chocolate and crisps) hehe!

First to be grabbed eagerly from the package were these two gems. CHILLY POPCORN! Aaaaaaah! I love popcorn, and I love chillies! I am so excited to have this! I need to share it though, otherwise I’d eat the whole packet myself! (although it is only just over 400kc :P). And lentils ❀ Ready to eat to add to salads and soups and roast veg and veggie burgers! The lists are endless. I had just opened a similar bag when this arrived, so I’m working my way through that packet first, then I’ll jump right in! Lentils help me up my protein intake and are really good to fill you up when you can’t eat too many carbs (i.e.: me), thank you so much!

Noodles! And Naked bars! Not together, but oh dear me! I love them! I had the naked bars last weekend. I love every single naked bar! If anyone out there hasn’t tried them, do it now! They are 100% natural ingredients, no added sugary crap you have in normal cereal bars, just pure perfect dried fruit and nuts ❀ The pecan one is one of my favourites too! The noodles, if you can’t quite see in the picture are wheat and gluten free brown rice noodles. Rice is one of the easiest carbs for my stomach to digest so these are just perfect! I bet they will work perfectly in a firecracker noodle bento too!!

Next is two thing which I can not wait to try! Healthy hot chocolate! Yes please!! πŸ˜€ I don’t drink hot chocolate very often but this one will chill me out so gimme!! πŸ™‚ The liquid marinade sounds divine! I will have to use it when I next do a stir fry, and marinate the chicken before putting it in the stir fry. The flavours are just what I like, and very japanesey! I know that’s not a word, I just got excited πŸ™‚

And lastly BBQ peri peri seasoning rub. I really like Nandos, but I don’t go there very often. I used this spice rub on some chicken fillets at the weekend that my bf and I had with a homemade mango salsa. It went brilliantly and I love the BBQ hotness! And then the beautiful dried black olives πŸ˜€ Gone! πŸ˜€ haha. I loved them and my mum said I smelt because I ate too many (they have garlic on them), but I didn’t care because they were so good!

Thank you so much Marie, the parcel was amazing! Thank you for knowing just what I like πŸ˜€
