X’s and G’los Adore HAITI!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 19, 2010

Presenting the new Valentine’s Day Glo Bar called Adore!

IMG_9642 

I let Eric pick the name because I just couldn’t decide among all of your wonderful suggestions! It was so cute he was grinning from ear to ear when I told him I picked his name. :D He picked it because ‘It has the same first letter as your name.’ lol.

The flavour: Roasted Vegan Marshmallow S’moore with homemade vegan graham crackers, dark chocolate, and cacao nibs!

Eric had just two words when he tasted this bar, ‘Best Seller’ ;)

You can now purchase Adore (limited quantities) as well as the new X’s and G’los Valentine’s Day Variety Packs online!

The Variety Packs are 10% off today only and I will be donating 10% of today’s sales from the variety pack to the Haiti Relief via The Humanitarian Coalition!! Help Haiti gets its’ GLO back and get some delicious V-day bars at the same time.

Lunch

For all of the early risers- do you find that you get hungry for lunch really early?? I am eating lunch so early these days- around 11:30am! Getting up early makes me so hungry in the morning!

So what was my weekly food treat as per the Early Rising Challenge?

IMG_9608

Ezekiel Bread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunch today was very colourful…

IMG_9614

I like my Ezekiel bread toasted very crunchy. It takes longer to eat and feels more filling.

I piled on the veggies:

  • Cukes
  • Plum tomatoes
  • Homemade hummus
  • Organic Baby carrots
  • Organic baby spinach
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Yummerz.

Then I had a romaine and cherry tomato side salad drizzled in homemade balsamic:

And Japanese Sencha green tea, to REV my engines for several more hours of baking today.

Dessert will be an Adore Glo Bar once these veggies digest a bit! ;) Mmmm.

And…GLO!

Yes I am always STARVED by 11:30, but I try to wait until 12 at least ;-)

Ellen January 19, 2010 at 1:39 pm

I was up at 5:30, and am now eating lunch at my desk…it’s 11:38…so yes, I get hungry early too!

Thanks for the idea about saving juice pulp. I made juice this morning for my husband and me, and I save the pulp in a container to make muffins, hopefully tonight!

Sounds delish! How did you make vegan smore bars..I mean, don’t marshmallows have gelatin?

Reply

Never mind, Angela! I just saw your ingredient list! YAY!

Your Adore bar, with its s’more flavor, sounds amazing! I love marshmellows :-)

We are still working on our holiday package of bars- LOVE them. My fiance knows to stay away from the peanut butter ones. Those are my fav. :)

I was craving a glo bar the other morning…can’t wait till my valentine pack arrives! The craving just won’t go away!

That sandwich looks so yummy!!!

And ok i’m drooling over the V-Day bar. They sound SO GOOD!!!!
I haven’t quite gotten through the last Glo Bars that I ordered as i’m rationing them haha but I just have to have the V-Day bars and it’s for a good cause!

Reply

Paige @ Running Around Normal January 19, 2010 at 2:02 pm

S’mores!! I should have guessed that! They look and sound aahhh mazing :D Love the reason behind Eric’s decision hahaha

And yep..I’m hungry by 11:00!

Reply

Lizzie January 19, 2010 at 2:04 pm

Ok, so it’s not just me!! I eat around 6.20-6.30 every morning and even with a snack around 9.30, am usually ready for lunch before noon! I loved the look of your lunch today – toasting does have a weird way of making your feel fuller (maybe b/c your mouth has to work harder to chew it?). I had a bowl of Amy’s lentil soup with a couple of pieces of Whole Foods ‘seeduction’ bread. Though I could use a Glo bar to finish up! :)

Nicole January 19, 2010 at 2:05 pm

I just ordered! I can’t wait to get them :)

LindsayRuns January 19, 2010 at 2:10 pm

I knew it had to be a marshmallow flavor! Can’t wait for payday so I can order some!

Lunch looks great!

Reply

LindsayRuns January 19, 2010 at 2:12 pm

Oh! And yes! Most days I either eat 3 meals by 11 (or I forget and sit around hungry) longer awake, the more you need food!

Diana January 19, 2010 at 2:15 pm

I get hungry for lunch at 11:30 also!

All your Glo bars sound amazing but these sound spectacular! Once I get some more moolah I will definitely order some (that could take a while but someday I will!)

I love the name and the story behind the bars :) You two seem like a great couple! Congrats on a great relationship and tasty looking bars!

Reply

Katie January 19, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Those bars look SO GOOD!!! I wish they were soy free. I eat that sandwich/salad combo for lunch almost every single day. Somehow I never tire of it! I think the key is changing up the flavor of the homemade hummus.

Reply

Erin (Travel, Eat, Repeat) January 19, 2010 at 2:28 pm

Love the name and the flavor — wow, sounds amazing!

You made my go-to lunch today. Toasted bread, hummus and veggies is an all-time fave. :)

Reply

Kristen January 19, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I work in a place where the typical day starts at 9:30 but often I get up at 5am to workout and write so by 11:30 I am ripping into my lunch when most people are just finishing their coffee!! Gorgeous lunch, btw!

Reply

Gabriela January 19, 2010 at 2:46 pm

Those bars look so amazing! I think I’m finally going to order some :) I usually eat lunch early, too, because I’m always starved after I work out, even if I have a substantial snack afterwards!

Reply

Haleigh January 19, 2010 at 2:51 pm

Oh how cute!! Those glo bars look fantastic!! I think I will be ordering some very soon.

Open faced sandwiches are one of my favorite lunches just because they talk awhile to eat them.

leatitia January 19, 2010 at 3:01 pm

I just ordered my variety pack! I can’t wait to taste the new bars, it looks SO GOOD!

I’ll give some away to my girlfriends as Valentine’s gifts.. but I’ll keep some for ME. :)

The sandwich looks tasty. I am still hoping to get to try a glo bar sometime all the way over here in the Azores. I do not think my sis is sending me one :( So much for that idea. this new bar with smores looks really good. I think it is great you will donate some money to help in Haiti.

I definitely notice I’m hungry for lunch a lot earlier when I get up early. Makes sense, though, right?

I really want to try the new V-day bars!

I get up at 5:25 am so I can be at work at 7. I eat breakfast pretty much first thing in the morning and I’m hungry for a “snack” probably around 8:45-9 and lunch about 11:30.

Hi Angela! I read a lot but don’t usually comment. I think your website is really wonderful and you take a really balanced approach to life and to your blog. Love to see all of your new discussion topics, challenges, etc. :)

I just wanted to point out that I think that the correct spelling is ” s’mores” (only one “o”)! Don’t know if those labels are prototypes, or the real deal, or if you wanted it spelled that way… just thought i’d mention it!

Jolene January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

I am going to try and order mine now – hope there are some left!!!

Becca Dressler January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

Could you share your hummus recipe? I’ve tried and retried to make hummus taste the way you buy it in grocery stores, but it never tastes right…I’m wondering if it’s because I use canned garbonzo beans…maybe I should start out raw? Just curious if you enjoy the hummus you had on your sandwich, if so…please share :)

Thanks! And all you’re doing for Haiti as well!

By any chance do you ship to Australia? I would love to buy some just to try your new creation.

Halt! Do these Adore’s not have nuts?? I have a nut allergy and it didn’t look like these ones had any in them?

Oh shoot – I just looked in more dept on the bakery site and there is peanut butter.
*sigh* Damn my nut allergy! LOL

Thanks anyway!

How do you usually eat the Glo Bars? For Breakfast or dessert? I mean I love them all the time I just wonder if they are meant to be a post meal treat or a mid meal snack..v-day ones sound sooo good!

A January 19, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Angela, I am really, really struggling right now, and your blog just brightens my day and gives me hope. I need to know that i can beat this (eating disorder). i see a therapist, of course, but this has been going on for six YEARS. i feel so lost and hopeless sometimes, but when i read all about how overcoming your battles, i just want to leap for joy and the thought recovery IS possible.
i am trying so hard and just failing again and again. it is so hard to keep believing in myself — all i see is the failure. your story inspires me, and you emanate strength and beauty.
when the world is in such shambles, and there are over 100,000 people dying in a single catastrophe, i feel like a selfish jerk for worrying about my own dumb eating. these people are starving, unable to access clean water, and i am gorging until i almost throw up? and the guilt over that hypocrisy just perpetuates the disordered behavior.
i am ready to move on. i need to be okay so that i can help others — like you. thanks, angela. you might get sick of hearing it (no!) but your readers genuinely love and appreciate you and all the good you do for yourself, for your friends, for the blogworld, and for humanity.

Reply

Lauren January 19, 2010 at 10:57 pm

I get up at 5:45 on weekdays, and I’m always dying for lunch at 11:30. I always feel like people judge me when they see me munching away at that hour, and I just want to tell them that if they got their lazy butts up earlier, they’d be hungry too!

Reply

Christy January 19, 2010 at 10:59 pm

Man, your veggie sandwich looks incredible! I eat veggie+hummus sandwiches all the time and they never look that pretty :-P

Reply

A January 19, 2010 at 11:22 pm

(On a lighter note)
L, i get up at 5:00 and always shut myself in my office to eat my 11:00ish lunch. I agree, people think it’s so weird (and i get so defensive), and they’ll actually make rude comments!

Run Sarah January 19, 2010 at 11:29 pm

I get so hungry by 11/11:30 that sometimes I’ll eat my lunch then if I am not busy!

liane January 20, 2010 at 12:34 am

off to check out the bakery… mmmm… smores…

Ok. I think I’m doing something wrong with my tea. The sencha doesn’t taste very good, totally bitter. I re-read the tea post, and i’m not boiling it to the end, but I guess I’m still boiling it too much?! AGH!
Of course it took me like 3 months to finally get the hang of making coffee, so … I just might have a longer learning curve than most?!

Reply

Aoife January 20, 2010 at 7:36 am

Hey liane – try adding some cold water to the hot water, that might work :) Keep trying, you’ll make your perfect cup of tea soon!

those look tasty! I love the little bit of marshmallow peeking out saying ‘eat me!’ lol I always get hungry by 10:30am during the week when I have to get up at 5. Usually I have to grab a snack to hold me over till lunch at 12:30 :)

Thanks!

Hey Angela! How do you prepare your Ezekiel?? Do you defrost it before you toast it? and do you use the oven or the countertop toaster?

Aww! What a cute story of naming!

I love homemade hummus. There’s absolutely nothing like it.
