Yup, self-affirmations still going strong!! :D Thanks Caitlin!

Your comments last night were incredible and inspiring to read! What a pick me up!

Did anyone else get a little teary eyed when watching the video? I admit I did!

I can’t wait until I leave the house today. I am going to leave a few messages around town. *evil cackle*

As I mentioned in yesterday afternoon’s post, I am selling my Glo Bakery goodies in a market this Saturday!! So what I thought was going to be a catch up week has turned into another crazy baking week! :D

Yesterday I spent the entire day baking and today and tomorrow I will be doing the same!

I made Part 1 of my Gl’oreos:

I can’t get over how much the cookie tastes like the chocolate cookie from actual Oreos! It is a dead ringer!

Part 2 will be the filling (healthified) of course!

Then I made 200 of my On The Glo Bars. Although these OTG bars had a twist! A crispy twist!!

After I pulled out all the ingredients and got everything ready, I realized that I was almost out of oats!!! What’s a gal to do?

I decided to sub some of the oats with cereal- rice crisp cereal!!

I used 1 cup oats and 1 cup of rice crisp cereal instead of 1.5 cups of oats.

The result was nothing short of sheer perfection:

A Light and airy delight.

The rice crisp cereal made these bars VERY light. They aren’t dense like the other ones. I would prefer these lighter bars for small snacks and the other ones when I am looking for more substance and energy!

In other batches, I added chocolate chips!!

Which, to my delight, melted when I added the brown rice syrup mixture!!

I LOVE the chocolate ones!!!

My mother in law is OBSESSED with these new bars!! She just can’t get enough of them! :D

She has a HUGE tab adding up I tell you…bahaha.

Another day, another Amazing Grass Green Monster:

In today’s mix:

These ingredients made 1.5 of these cups! So good!

I  love that they don’t put a bunch of crap in the powders. It is all natural, organic, and vegan. BOO-YAH.

GOOD NEWS to my fellow Canadians! Amazing Grass products will be available in Canadian WHOLE FOODS stores this August 2009!

Also, if you decide to purchase AG online, just enter ‘ohsheglows’ at the checkout and get 15% OFF! Big thanks to Teri! :)

 

Here is what I have decided to bake for the market Saturday:

  1. Mini sweet loaves (TBD- either banana blueberry walnut bread or my Pumpkin apple raisin)
  2. On The Glo Bars (~200)
  3. Skinni-mini Glo buns
  4. Glo’nuts
  5. Gl’oreos
  6. Mini muffins (Time pending)

I also need to:

  • Prepare signage
  • Business cards
  • magnets
  • Ingredient list
  • Nutritional info

2 days left!!! Never a dull moment around this household…

See you this afternoon for:

  • WHO in my circle of family and friends is starting up a BLOG! You won’t believe who it is and what the blog is going to be about! Any guesses?
  • Am I chopping my hair off?? Find out…

i put chocochips in the bars when i made them and the melty addition was SUPERYUM.
brilliant crispy rice. i may need to try that. also want to experiment with putting dried fruits in there (like dried cherries or something, to do a tlc bar spin)

good luck at the festival! i just passed our weekly farmers market and saw the bakery stall setting up and thought of you.

I love your expression in the pic! The Glo’reos look amazing. Good luck with getting everything ready for the market on Saturday. I was seeing rain in the forecast, so I hope it stays away while you’re there!

Katherine June 18, 2009

The Gl’oreos look delicious and your pictures of the bars are gorgeous! You’re going to have such a blast at the market on Saturday and you’re going to be a huge success. I can’t believe I’m getting to experience your rise to the top – keep it up!

Can’t wait for the surprises! :)

What market are you going to be at – one in Toronto? And DONT chop your hair off – I don’t know if you saw in my FB photos that I once had long GLOOOOORIOUS hair like you have now – and I chopped er into a bob last year and have hated it ever since – its a large pain in the rear – I found long hair so much easier and can not wait to have it back (currently attempting to grow it back now)!

Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 18, 2009

I definitely felt teary during the video but for a different reason. The song you played, along with the video- just completely struck me in a different way because of something i’ve been holding on to for about 5 years.

Hm, i’m guessing you are cutting off your hair – otherwise why would you post that question?

Nicole June 18, 2009

It must be either your mom or Eric….! Your hair is so pretty!

Sorry I didn’t comment on your last post. The video you made is amazing!! And so true. We all need to hear affirmations like that. Love it!

I haven’t forgotten to send you pics of the betsy heels, I have been crazy busy with work. Were under staffed at the moment. But I have a few other items to send you. I have always wanted to open a coffee/boutique, and If I do I am so ordering your products for Earthybrits. goodluck and I love the amazingGRASS PRODUCTS.

Hiya!

my guess it is your mum as i’ve seen her on your blog a lot and I think she’ll be doing a green fingered gardening blog?

my second guess is your sister – and she’ll blog about being a mother etc…

… do i win? do i do i?!!!

I really enjoy your blog and you are getting me very interested in those Green Monsters! Do you happen to know if there’s a difference between juicing and blending, in terms of nutrients, digestion, etc?

Meg June 18, 2009

Oh my goodness those bars look amazing! If I didn’t have a HUGE collection of bars already in my pantry I’d have to take it upon myself and order some ;)

I really appreciate your post yesterday on body image. It’s really sad what the world overall has come to in terms of what looks ‘good’, you know? Really makes you think! I’m so thankful that my days of distorted body image and disordered eating are over. Somedays I still feel a little off in my own skin, but I know that all women go through that. Every woman has her days! But inspirational posts like that really help. Thank you :)

I can’t wait to see who’s starting a blog! And you’re chopping your hair off?! Hopefully for Locks of Love! I donated 10 1/2 inches in November and it was one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done, knowing that a cancer patient could feel a little bit more confident with hair!

Love,
Meg

Thank you for the news on Amazing Grass!! I keep wanting to order it online, but every time I get the the $15 shipping fee I stop.

I will be coming to Toronto in August for sure!!!

Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 18, 2009

Ok, I just have to say that I am totally impressed by that leaning tower of cookies. Haha, that seriously amazed me.

ANYWHO, what a great idea with the bars!!! I just love different textures in bars, so it will be nice to have the two recipes to play around with.

Good luck with all the work you have to get done before Saturday. I’m sure it will all turn out amazing! :)

I love the self affirmations! Awesome idea.

Ann June 18, 2009

Yummy, I had wondered if you would be doing anything with “puffed grain” cereals… they are so light and crunchy! I like to add them to yogurt for a bit of crunch sometimes. Have you tried varieties other than rice? I’m keen on Puffed Kamut and Puffed Millet (the millet has a fun texture)!

Kay June 18, 2009

Those look so incredibly yummy and thank you for the recipe for the drink – I love kale!

Had my first DELICIOUS green monster on Wednesday (after buying my Kitchen Aid blender (from Caynes and ON SALE!!).

LOVE IT (both the monster and the blender)!

Also – great news about the Amazing Grass – cannot wait until they get then at Whole Foods because they look to be delightful additions to the smoothies…

michelle June 18, 2009

Angela,

That’s so funny that you added pumpkin to your monster..I have a modified one sitting in the fridge for tomorrow morning and some freezing in the freezer…I love pumpkin.

I love the affirmations. Keep them going. I am taking mine to Darwin Australia and Timor with me :)

Oh man, I’m going to have to try those krispy glo bars, yum! And I may just have to order some AG now, woo-hoo! I just love your site, you seem so technically advanced. Do you mind me asking how you do your site, do you code? I have a new logo and the ideas of a new site, but my fiancee (who is pretty good at computers) is too busy to set it up, and I’m just retarded when it comes to sites like this. I just love yours, it’s so user friendly, but still has a ton of great information. Thanks! and happy baking :)

The more and more I read about and see photos of the food for the bakery, the more I wish you lived near me!!! Get Glow Bakery big enough and you can start expanding! DC definitely has a market for a healthy bakery!

hi angela – i’ve been reading your blog for a couple months now and just decided to comment today. I think you are a FABULOUS inspiration. You really got me away from being obsessed with counting calories/determining my happiness based on the scale. I haven’t counted calories in months and only weight myself once a month now because it no longer matters to me. You made me realize that if I am hungry my body needs fuel – just like a car :) so I just really wanted to say thank you!! My peace with food/weight was largely influenced by you :)

now those cookies just look great!!

Yes where are you selling this weekend? Is it in the GTA? I would love to come buy your stuff :)

Don’t chop your hair, I did mine a while ago and I really miss my long hair. I think Eric would be a great blogger, on his meals all about meat, the way to a man’s heart!

Mom who shops with the kids June 18, 2009

I think there is an epidemic of people not understanding food lables. I would love to see this taught in health class to the kids so that they can make informed healthy choices. They need to learn calories are good in the right amount and from the right foods. The preaching this and that or thinking they will learn from what you feed them does not work. The freshmen 15 is proof. Mothers and fathers need to teach kids about food more today then any time in history. Lables are a mistery and so easy to misunderstand. We need to take our kids shopping and read the lables with them so they learn how to do it. Calories are a part of it but really only a part. They need to learn portion size and learn about the fats, sugars and salt and learn that because it tells them that it is reduced sodium doesn’t mean that it is a good product and so on.
Knowledge is power and with power comes enlightenment!
