Vegan Recipes and a Glo Bar Giveaway!

Life feels like it’s spinning at 6453 klicks per hour these days.

Some things are happening in our lives that I can’t tell you about just yet, but will soon. Don’t you hate when people say that? I do. I hate myself for saying that.

No one likes a tease, including me. But here I am being a tease. ;)

I can tell you it’s home and career related for us (not baby related), but that’s about all I can divulge at this time. Unless of course you get me drunk and spill the beans like I did to every breathing soul that I chatted with at the wedding. I’m a good secret keeper like that. Give me a 5.5% beer and I’ll tell you my life story.

The summer is speeding by though! Suddenly, it’s August 9th, I’m craving pumpkin like it’s Thanksgiving, and I’m in serious trouble if I don’t buy Eric a kick-butt birthday gift by the 11th. We’re also hosting some Irish family this week and capping the weekend off with another big family BBQ. The weeks are flying by!

Eric said, “Ange, don’t worry! You don’t have to get me anything for my birthday.”

Oh, what a relief. I thought I had to for a minute!

Wait. This is a trick.

I thought only women played the “you don’t need to get me anything” card. Sometimes Eric even plays the “you don’t need to get me a card” card. Clearly, he wants to test me. Or he hates my cards.

Or maybe he wants one of those sentimental homemade gifts this year.

Oh noes.

IMG_7185

Does a homemade meal count?

I will scour Pinterest hoping inspiration strikes. If all else fails I’ll just make one of everything on my Food board and send him into a food coma until he forgets all about birthday gifts.

Yes, food coma it is.

Double Chocolate Torte, you’re next on the list.

I recently made this cheeze sauce for my family last week and everyone devoured it! They spread it on sandwiches and loved it as Mac n Cheeze. The kids and adults both gobbled it up!

IMG_7168

Unlike birthday gifts for your significant other or alcohol and secrets, you can’t go wrong with this dish.

IMG_7179

For dessert, I made something that looked much more naughty than it really was, made primarily from GROUND FLAX and a few other all-natural ingredients.

I prefer to roll them in sweetened coconut because the flax balls aren’t very sweet and it gives them a nice pop of sweetness on the tongue, however unsweetened coconut works too. Freeze them for 30-60 minutes to set and enjoy!

IMG_7133

The chopped almonds give them a little crunch too and the cup of flax lends an earthy, nutty flavour with a hint of sweetness. You know what else I love about them? They pack in a ton of healthy Omega oils that aid in glowing skin, hair, and nails. Hence the name, Glowballs. :)

Did you say Pumpkin Chai tea??? Going to scour Davids tea online now!!!

39 Tara August 9, 2011

Yes that’s right! I am pretty sure it was part of their fall seasonal line last year, so they may not have it in stock year round… but I am positive they’ll bring it back this fall since it was so popular last year. It is delicious!! I just opened my can and took a smell… mmmm! Have you tried any of their other teas? I have about a dozen of them, all amazing in their own way :)

I want this pasta in my life. Looks so fresh, flavorful, and just downright good.

I hate coming up with gifts for men. They are seriously way too hard to shop for. Especially my husband. He is so nitpicky about specifics. Then, he will research products on end. I always wonder if I get the “right one”. And don’t even get me started on how he will search pricing for the item to see if there is a better deal on it…LOL

You had me laughing out loud with your thoughts around Eric’s birthday. Kevin does the same to me. One year I actually thought he was serious and didn’t get him anything. Oh boy did I learn my lesson.
Those globalls look delicious! I make something similar for breakfast with peaches and banana and it’s delicious! I usually form them into cakes and have them with raw vegan yogurt. It’s to die for!

I just have to say, I just found your blog through Kath Younger’s blog KERF last night and was honestly brought to tears reading about your story and struggles with eating disorders. You could have been writing my life story! So thank you for being so honest and inspiring (and I swear I’m not just saying that to suck up so I’ll win :)).

This post just kept getting better and better! I already entered a few days ago, then!

So I am afraid if I make this cheese sauce I will be addicted, I guess I better try it out this week, eh? Afer all is is super healthy. That meal looks stunning. Wow!

An idea for Eric: Make him coupons like “Baked goodies of your choice for one year” or “20 min Back massage”. All I can say is my husband is such an easy, great guy (as is Eric too it seems) and these simple things make him super happy. :)

I liked you ages ago. On Facebook..and otherwise :)

The Flax Glowballs looks spectacular! I make things like that with whatever nuts/seeds/oats/etc I have on hand. I usually use dates not bananas though b/c in raw/nobake balls, I find that bananas render my entire dough a sloppy mess…lol! And then I have to bake it. Which isn’t bad. But I always stick w/ dates or dried fruit not nanners.

I need to try your recipe, and actually use your ratios and not improvise :)

This post made me smile! What a fun tone you had today! The cheeze sauce has been sounding wonderful and I will be implementing it sooner than later as these rainy days make me craze some mac and cheese :D

Change is always fun ;)

First of all, I have tried MANY recipes on your blog and they ALL turn out! I can not say that about any other blog. So DELICIOUS! Also, I just simply enjoy reading your every day musings. You are very talented… be encouraged and keep writing! I also wanted to tell you that I went to an amazing vegan/gluten-free/raw restaurant in Vancouver over the weekend and if you are ever in the area you MUST go. It is called ORGANIC LIVES, here is the link http://organiclives.org/. I read previous posts about vegan restaurants in Toronto and thought there must be one in Van and I wound up at Organic Lives. So good!

Those glow balls sound delicious! I’ve been wanting to make some raw snack balls (have a couple of my own recipes in mind), and now I’m adding these to the list! Love the large amount of flax. I’m always concerned about not getting enough omega 3’s.

Yum – I always love meatless recipes. I do a “vegetarian” month every year, so I’m always looking for new things to try! We eat vegetarian/vegan at least once a week anyways. And this looks like a yummy addition!

I liked you on Facebook! Both of your recipes look so delicious- I wish I would have seen those Glo Balls before I made homemade Larabars yesterday though!

I made the cheezy pasta last night, and it was delicious! Even my husband liked the cheeze sauce, and he doesn’t usually like nutritional yeast.

I have a question about the Glo Bar packaging. I am starting to package my own food and would love to know how you package your Glo Bars. Do you use bags and a sealer? Or Celo sheet? I’d really appreciate any information.
Thanks

I use polypro. pouches and a hot sealer for the bars :)

Hey Angela! Made your “cheeze sauce” last night for the first time, and my hubby and I both loved it! Thanks for the great recipes, as always.

I was wondering though…. what kind of nutritional yeast do you use? Is it a “white” color, or yellow, in order to give your cheeze sauce the yellowy-color? My sauce was definitely BROWN, but tasted great. I was just curious as to how yours looks so cheesey!

Thanks!
