7 Foods I’m Loving Right Now


When I was a child, I only wanted to wear my two favourite outfits.

One of them was a neon pink and green spandex short and tank top combo and the other was a neon pink polka dot legging/skirt and t-shirt combo. Might I add, accessorized with a scrunchie, snap-on bracelet, and HIGH TOP kicks. I’ve always been pretty fashion forward. I bet my mom is laughing right now because she spent so many mornings trying to convince me that I couldn’t just wear the same thing everyday.

I guess I still don’t believe her, as I look down at the jeans I’ve been wearing for the past two weeks straight. :)


[Check out that pose]

I also go on major kicks with food. In 2009 and 2010, I ate so many Mary’s Crackers, now I can’t even bring myself to look at them. I’ve also had so much chocolate, I didn’t touch it for months.

Wait, that didn’t happen….obviously.

Anyways, here are the foods I’m loving lately. Ask me again in a month, and I’ll probably want nothing to do with them.

#1 Grapefruit

They’re incredibly juicy, healthy, flavourful, and in season to boot. Now is the time to give them another shot if you’ve been on the fence. Try the Rose or Ruby varieties- they tend to have a nice balance of sweet and tart flavours. I find the right grapefruit doesn’t need any sweetener!

Last weekend, I ate 3 grapefruit in the span of one day…it was glorious, if not mildly insane. I had juice all over my face like a 2 year old. Did I mention I used to hate grapefruit?


#2 Rawtella

Step aside Nutella, there is a new spread in town. A couple weekends ago, I had my first experience visiting Organic Garage. I laughed, I cried (over the bill mostly), and I stalked every inch of the store with a fine tooth comb. Let’s just say I’ll never be the same again.

Especially, after trying out this little gem…


Picture with me for a moment Nutella with a rich, deep coffee flavour. Only this kind is vegan and raw, made with organic raw hazelnuts, organic raw cacao nibs, coffee beans, raw coconut sugar.

As you can see it is now empty. :\


Please keep me away from Organic Garage. It’s clearly dangerous.

#3 Fresh Rosemary


Remember last summer when I told you that my outdoor potted rosemary plant was dying a slow, horrible death, despite my best intentions (read: over-watering and then neglecting for 2 months). I totally gave up on the plant by October and moved it into the garage for storage.

Well, you can imagine my surprise when I went into the garage last weekend and a friend pointed out that my rosemary plant was growing!!



All it needed was a window in the garage and a bit of moisture from the air. Who knew?

Mind you, the parsley on the other hand, is not so low maintenance…it weeps for a better gardener.


I’ve been on a huge rosemary kick with my recipes lately, including this savoury nut butter that I made for the cookbook:


Oh man am I excited to share this recipe with you! It’s inspired by my favourite savoury spiced nut mix….and easily one of the best nut butters I’ve tasted in all my years.

I also made a luxurious vanilla macadamia-almond nut butter, that will blow your mind.


#4 Five Seed Rosemary and Garlic Crackers

Sticking with the rosemary theme, this box of crackers didn’t last more than a day or two in this house. They are like a corn chip in cracker form filled with goodies like flax, hemp, and sesame seeds.


#5 Millet

I’m using it in everything these days. That is, when I’m not burning it to a black crisp or over-cooking it, which is about every third attempt. Note to self: Find and buy a clip-on timer. Someone mentioned in the comments that I need a clip-on timer like they use in science labs. Where can I find one of these little gems?


#6 White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce

I’m so obsessed with this sauce, I contemplated dedicating an entire post to it. Kristi first introduced this sauce to me a year or two ago and I fell head over heels for this stuff. Then our Costco membership expired and I went without it for a year. Costco is now back in our lives and so is this magnificent sauce. I buy 5 bottles at a time when we go…not even joking! I’d tell you what foods it goes good with, but the easiest thing thing to tell you is what foods it doesn’t go good with.



Well, maybe grapefruit.

I was at Costco the other week and a lady was loading up her cart with this sauce. She said to me, “Have you tried this marinara sauce before?? It’s the BEST marinara I’ve ever tried! All of my Italian relatives buy it because it tastes so authentic.”

We were instantly best friends and then we stacked the bottles into our carts like crazy people.

As soon as tomato season hits, I’m going to try my best to replicate this sauce. Although, I’m not sure how close I will come as they use Italian tomatoes…

#7 Vanilla Beans….the cheaper way!

To those of you who told me that I can find vanilla beans at Costco for cheap…you will forever hold a special place in my heart.

You get about 10 beans for $15 here in Canada (I read they are $12 in the US!), which is the cheapest I’ve ever seen them. Best of all they are great quality and so far, nice and fresh.


[image source: The Kitchn]

Also note, thanks to a few readers, you can buy 54 vanilla beans on Amazon for $27!! However, I just found out they don’t ship to Canada.

As many of you have already noticed, I finally created my new winter header, just 18 days shy of spring! Miracles do happen. The real miracle will be if this thing isn’t still up by Labour Day. By the way, press control + F5 to refresh your page if you can’t see the new header.

Who says winter is only dark and gloomy?


True story: I almost pulled my groin while doing this photoshoot outside yesterday. The deck was covered in snow and I slipped while moving my tripod. Groin almost pulled. Thankfully it wasn’t, because I have a 5km race on Sunday! woot woot :)

Now tell me, what foods are YOU obsessing over lately? Spill the beans.

BEETS! Every day, all day.


2 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

mmmmm yes


3 Val March 2, 2012

Ooh, what a beautiful header, I really love it!

Right now, I’m on a huge cauliflower kick! I just tried it about last month ( I know! ) and it was totally one of those, “why have I not had this before?” moments. My favorite thing to do is pop it in the toaster oven until it gets crispy and slightly burnt and then try not to scorch my throat/fingers before it’s cooled. Roasted cauli with hot sauce is one of my favorites.

Another recent introduction into my life would be hot sauce. See above, haha. It is to me what your “White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce” is to you; I’m putting it on just about everything! I even put it on a piece of bread – not part of a sandwich or anything, just a plain slice, is that odd? ;)

Of course, there are plenty others that I love; but those two I’m really obsessing about right now! Good luck with your race; rest your poor self up! We’ve been lucky where I am and haven’t had any snow, just about.


4 Kate @ get up and flow March 2, 2012

I’m also not a fan of grapefruit…and can’t figure out how to start liking it! What made you come around?


5 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

I think for me it was finding the varieties that I really enjoy…I find the ruby grapefruits a lovely balance of sweet and tart flavours. Also the more I eat them, the more sweet they taste to me!


6 sarah March 2, 2012

I love grapefruit and I’ve been seeing a lot of people on the web who broil it before eating. Might be a new twist!
Why am I loving PC semi sweet chocolate chips lately? I carry a little tupperware full in my purse. Can’t wait to try your onion ring recipe tonight! And my long standing obsession is with Haddad High Protein pitas. I eat them with jam for breakfast, stuffed with salad for lunch, and toasted and dipped. I should really contact them and offer to do a commercial, that’s how much I love them.
Organic Garage is great–have you tried the restaurant Kind in Burlington? I want to check it out but haven’t heard too much about it?
Enjoy your weekend!


7 Colleen March 2, 2012

try warming the grapefruit in the oven (cut in half or peeled in slices) before you eat it–and then drizzle it with maple syrup. YUM


8 Debi March 2, 2012

Have you tried them broiled? The are delicious warm…..and so juicy. I sprinkle them with Truvia ……broil them for about 5-7 minutes and oh so yummy!!


9 Kate @ get up and flow March 4, 2012

Thanks forthese tips! Sounds delish — can’t wait to try it!


10 Tt in nyc March 6, 2012

I do the exact same as previous suggestions (broil, maple syrup drizzle) plus a generous bit of cracked fresh pepper- somehow the sweet/tart/spicy/acidic hits alllll the right spots!


11 Stephanie March 6, 2012

Grapefruit + banana (not frozen) + blender = Deliciousness!!


12 Cait's Plate March 2, 2012

I think I’m late to the game on this but I LOVE the new seasonal header!

Second of all – RAWTELA!?! How have I never heard of this!? I definitely need to go get some!


13 Sandra Kohlmann March 2, 2012

I am SO into millet lately. I put it in everything. I am also loving lentils, coleslaw, dried wild mushrooms, dates and tomato paste in a tube (so easy to put a little bit into everything). I’m also super into baking cookies (for an upcoming cookbook) and I put oat flour and wheat germ into many of my cookie recipes and now I’m using a garbanzo/fave bean flour mix to make gluten-free cookies. Yum!


14 morgan March 2, 2012

I know this may be a little crazy but I just found (and bought) 50 jars of the marinara from amazon! We don’t have a Costco around us so I checked to see if Amazon carried it and sure enough they have 50 40 oz jars (shipped!) for around $20!! It’s like 42 cents per jar! Every single review was 5 stars…so hopefully my family will like it as much as everyone else does :)


15 barb March 2, 2012

I’m in love with kale in any form, in smoothies, baked, raw in a salad and thanks to you in a monster green smoothie, love lara bars , just discovered the cherry pie bar, so tart and delicious, non fat greek yogurt with fresh blueberries, qinoa, millet and cashew sauce .I love your tomato soup and cheese sauce. Also love Vegenaise mayo and avocados.


16 Angela March 2, 2012

Whoa, that’s crazy! (In a good way of course) ;) I can’t believe it’s so cheap. Is it the same brand?


17 morgan March 2, 2012

Exactly the same! I actually copy and pasted right from your post.


18 Andrea March 2, 2012

I [think] I see what you were looking at on Amazon. It says 50 pack yes, but they aren’t selling them as a 50 pack. It says 10.99/bottle. I could be wrong, but I just don’t want you to think you are getting more than you really are!


19 morgan March 2, 2012

I will be extremely disappointed if it’s really only one jar. Why would it say 50 pack? I just emailed the seller so hopefully we’ll see soon! Thanks for pointing that out.


20 amy March 3, 2012

Maybe try ordering from their website: http://www.newyorkflavors.com/vimasa2pa.html 10% off a half-case (3 jars) and an additional 10% off a full case (6 jars).


21 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh March 2, 2012

YUM!!! I want that marinara, pronto!

Funnily enough, I’m loving beans right now! I got over my fear of preparing from dry and now it’s a beanfest in da house! I’m also learning to love oatmeal again after my body revolted against it last year!

Have a great weekend!


22 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon March 2, 2012

I’ve been loving grapefruit as well! The big bags were on sale at my grocery store two weeks in a row!
I’ve also been loving eggplant and waffles!


23 katie@ KatieDid March 2, 2012

I have a little love affair going with a certain brand of pasta sauce too- I always buy the vodka sauce and put it on everythinggggg, and eat it straight out of the jar quite often! Wish we had that brand, I’m intrigued. I’m loving a toasted coconut almond butter I made yesterday and cold bananas from the fridge yummmm, and random.


24 Angela March 2, 2012

I love cold bananas too. :)


25 Cristina March 2, 2012

Ooh, I’ll have to try to find those vanilla beans! I picked up a pack from Trader Joe’s {which always has decent prices} and I’m planning to make vanilla extract :)


26 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

Also check out the links on Amazon that others provided…seems like an even better deal.


27 Willow March 2, 2012

Beautiful post as always, Angela! I have to say I’m in love with a lot of the same things right now… especially grapefruit! It’s top of my shopping list every time I run to the store.
That raw coffee nutella looks amazing, too. Thank goodness for the internet, because I now have it in my shopping cart!
I do the same thing with food trends, where I fall in love for a week, or a month, and then over-do it or find something new. You’ve inspired me – one of these days I’ll have to write about whatever my current obsession is, so I can look back and remember once the cravings have passed. :P
Thanks for sharing!


28 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 2, 2012

LOVE the header Ange, and I love so many of the things you listed in this post! I’ve yet to experience the famous Organic Garage (maybe on our next fieldtrip? Pleeeease??) but the rawtella sounds amazing! I am also totally hitting up Costco this weekend for vanilla beans. I’m assuming they keep them by the massive vats of spices… I’ll comb the place until I find them!! ;) Happy Friday!


29 kathleen @ the daily crumb March 2, 2012

i am loving homemade almond butter — 1 cup almonds, pinch of salt, and a touch of vanilla, 6 minutes in my food processor. voila!

and rosemary… mmmmm! i could use it on everything!!


30 Barb C March 2, 2012

Tofu Scrambles – saw your post on it, and had two packages of tofu that needed to be used. Sauteed a ton of veggies, seasoned them up and added the chopped tofu. Delish!


31 Jessica V March 2, 2012

LOVE the new header! Beautiful and so much fun!


32 Angela March 2, 2012

Thanks Jessica!


33 Noelle (@singerinkitchen) March 2, 2012

I could go for some of that Rawtella right now! I am just enjoying beans and quinoa little by little since the baby was born.I am also enjoying So Delicious NEW almond products I got on my doorstep too! SO YUM!


34 Jana @ Newly Wife Healthy Life March 2, 2012

Rawtella?! Wow, there are so many variations of food out there, it is crazy! Lately I have been on a big roasted kale kick! It’s cheap, delicious, and easy to make! I can’t ask for more.. :-)


35 Robyn March 2, 2012

I love your new header!! I just found out about persimmons and la,la, love them!! When I saw the beautiful purple cabbage I was reminded of your gorgeous recipe(I’m sure I’ve made 3/4 times since)…love cabbages of all colour And the rawtella is definately on the ”list”. We’re about 3hrs from a Costco so only go 4/6 times a yr…now I’ll be on the hunt for yummy vanilla beans<3…And the Millet recipe is this weekends menu,,,Thank you and enjoy your weekend and 5K…hope it's warmer out there??


36 Jesse (Out To Lunch Creations) March 2, 2012

I love that pasta sauce, you talked about it a while ago on the blog and I tried it and fell in love. I went searching for vanilla beans at Costco last week and had no luck, I’ll have to keep trying.

Love the new header!


37 Lindsay @ The Reluctant Runner March 2, 2012

I love the new header! Right now I can’t stop eating oranges. I put 2 4lb bags in the cart every time I grocery shop and my husband just shakes his head :)


38 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen March 2, 2012

My rosemary plant just kicked the bucket this past month. I was really hoping it would’ve pulled through to spring but no such luck. too bad b/c I love that stuff.
Grapefruits are also a recent obsession over here along with making my own nut butters. I got a legit food processor for Christmas and have been loving playing around with the different kinds of butters I can now make and more importantly, not having to pay $8-9 for it!


39 Kiele Gregoire March 2, 2012

i love this header! it’s march, but it snowed a TON here yesterday (new england) and i was in need of a lovely winter fruit and veg photo like that. thank you! also, i’m now sad that i threw away my rosemary tree- i was so happy to have it, and then i was sure i totally killed it. it was seriously dead. so i threw it out, believing that i just don’t have enough light in my house to keep it alive. i shouldn’t have been so quick! i’m so glad yours is proving us all wrong!


40 Jasper Naomi @ crunchylittlebites March 2, 2012

LOVE the new headers!!!!!! LOVe the persimmon!

my current favorite is amaranth :D and coconut butter


41 kelli March 2, 2012

love the new header, and i got extremely cheap vanilla beans here – http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CPZSC8

about 54 beans for 27 dollars (before shipping). that’s like 55 cents a bean! the quality is the same as ones i’ve bought at whole foods. i’ve vacuum sealed them to keep them fresh.


42 kelli March 2, 2012

i just checked and shipping is free! woohoo!


43 Simone March 2, 2012

These all look delicious!! Have you thought about a rice cooker for your millet? I haven’t tried millet in mine yet, but it’s the only way I do rice & quinoa! Mine has a steamer basket so you I can shorten my cooking time. I can’t wait to try your mushroom & millet recipe! I’ve already converted my husband from frozen cardboard veggie burgers to yours!


44 Shelly March 2, 2012

My current obsessions are barley, butternut squash, coconut oil, arugula, parsley (which I used to hate!), chipotle peppers and the sauce they come in, and corn tortillas. Kind of random- haha!


45 Jacqueline@digintobooks March 2, 2012

YUM! Beautiful pictures of the veggies in the snow! I am so similar to you as far as eating habits go-I definitely cycle through foods and go through mini “addictions” as I call them. Good thing I’m obsessed with eating sweet potatoes, popcorn, carrot sticks, and pumpkin!


46 Faith @ For the Health of It March 2, 2012

I’m dying to get my hands on that rawtella – sounds divine! I don’t like grapefruits, but I am really craving grapefruit juice for some reason. I really need to get myself a juicer!


47 Renee March 2, 2012

Current flavor obsession: blueberry + pistachio. At the rate I’ve been eating through bags of frozen blueberries, I’m surprised my teeth haven’t been permanently stained blue! The rosemary made me think back to my childhood in Maine. Just before the first frost, the hardy rosemary would get moved to an enclosed porch. If my memory serves me well, I’m sure your garage smells fantastic!! Enjoy:)


48 Kate March 2, 2012

Hi – love your site. Regarding the clip-on timer, you can get one at Lee Valley Tools (www.leevalley.com). It has both a clip-on feature and a magnet, so you can stick it on either way. Very useful!



49 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

Thanks Kate, love lee valley


50 Sierra March 2, 2012

Ha! I eat the same foods over and over too! I ate hummus every day for a year and a half straight and now I can’t even think about eating the stuff! Which is so sad cuz it’s so good! :(


51 janet @ the taste space March 2, 2012

Great list! You can tell yourself that it took you that long to get to your new header because you were waiting for snow… it has been a very dry winter in Toronto and I am quite sad I didn’t take out my snowshoes at all! :( Not sure where to get the medical grade timers, but I bought mine from Homesense and love it. It is a bit snazzy because it also includes a thermometer I never use (but if I did meat or candies again, I am all set, hehe). ;)


52 Clem March 2, 2012

I tried nut butters just after I began eating a vegan diet and hated them. Haven’t tried them since, except peanut butter, and I wasn’t a fan of that either. I’ve always like nutella, though, so maybe hazelnut butter would suit my picky taste buds?

Must try grapefruits, as well. I hate acid/sour foods, so I’ve always avoided them, but maybe it’s time for change.

I am obsessed with kale at the moment. I put it in just about everything, and since I’ve discovered green smoothies I make one almost every single morning.

And chocolate… when am I not obsessed with chocolate???


53 Lacey March 2, 2012

I used to hate grapefruit and now love it too :)
Also, that Rawtella sounds amazing!!!


54 Anne March 2, 2012

I love the new header! I recently made my own nutella, and I have been obsessed with it! The Rawtella looks equally as amazing. Also, obsessed with roasting red peppers and adding them to sandwiches, chili, and pasta sauce. LOVE IT


55 Beth March 2, 2012

Great post! I have recently rediscovered grapefruit, also. We have been eating it on weekends. I am not a big fan of citrus fruit because of the white pithy stuff, but I like grapefruit and Cuties (mandarin oranges).
I also have overcooked millet every time I’ve made it.
You should be able to find a clip-on timer in the kitchen accessories section of any store. I used to have one that I got at the grocery store, but it fell off and the clip broke. Do you have a timer function on your cell phone? You could use that, too.
My latest fun find was Mango Butter at Trader Joe’s. I finished the last of my pumpkin butter made from your recipe and needed something else. It’s delicious!


56 Tia March 2, 2012

We absolutely love that marinara sauce as well. And in our Costco here, they have put out a Kirkland one just like it, with three bottles on a pack. Can’t remember the price but it’s much cheaper per bottle and identical to the white linen one! I also love that I can get pure vanilla extract for $7 in a HUGE bottle!
Right now peanut butter is my thing! And creating everything from scratch!


57 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table March 2, 2012

I am with you on the rosemary – I can’t get enough! that a fresh thyme. I think I’ll go make some nut butter with it right now, actually…

My new addition is also a major obsession – I finally got a Vitamix! Smoothies reached a whole new level this week. :)


58 Katy March 2, 2012

I’ve also been eating my weight in grapefruit lately! I can’t seem to get enough avocado (I know, I know…totally out of season but I loooove it), and I also stumbled upon a recipe for roasted beets with tahini sauce that are aaammmmmaaaaazzziing!


59 MJ March 2, 2012

Beets & Tahini sauce?? Please share!! Omg! Love me some beet!!


60 Katy March 2, 2012

This is where the recipe came from:



61 Bridget March 2, 2012

I obsess over vegan cooking blogs, clearly. :) I recently “re-tried” grapefruit and my husband and I can’t get enough of it either! He told me he had to stop himself from having 3 of them the other day too. I also can’t seem to add enough hot sauce to things lately. Any recommendations on one that you love?


62 Lili March 2, 2012

Be careful with grapefruit! It interacts with a lot of regular over the counter medications, not just prescriptions.

I take Allegra daily (even in our Canadian winter), and the pharmacist warned me never to eat grapefruit. Apparently you can’t eat it while taking any over the counter allergy medications. Check with your pharmacist!


63 Irini March 2, 2012

I laughed as soon as I read about Mary’s Crackers because that’s exactly what I’m obsessed with right now! I have them with everything, stew, soup, desert (topped w almond butter and honey, Sooooo good). I’ve gone through 2 Costco-sized boxes in the past 2 weeks, I doubt it’s healthy.
Also, I will be googling organic garage and will not rest till I get my hands on this Rawtella!


64 Abby @ Fig & Fork March 2, 2012

We’ve been loving ginger, fennel, bok choy, alfalfa sprouts and kombucha, but not all at the same time! : )


65 Kristie March 2, 2012

Best source for vanilla beans (puts Costco waaaaay to shame): http://www.amazon.com/Premium-Bourbon-Madagascar-Vanilla-Beans-Approx/dp/B000CR1ELU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330701823&sr=8-1. $19 for 27. They also have various other sizes. And if you’re not into Amazon, you can order directly from JR Mushrooms, which I have also done.


66 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

Thanks Kristie, I just discovered they don’t ship to Canada. I will have to try from the source! Thanks


67 AGS March 2, 2012

Anything sunflower — sunflower seed butter, bread with lots of sunflower seeds. Seeds/nuts tossed onto salads. My sun is now eat nut butters out of the jar, just like his mom. His dad doesn’t think it’s nearly as cute as I do. Ha! And marinated anything — mushroom, roasted peppers, kale. And blue cheese.


68 AGS March 2, 2012

And I’ve been adding orange and grapefruit segments to salad a lot lately.


69 Melissa March 2, 2012

This is my absolute favorite lab timer! I used to hide it because the other grad students would steal it from my bench. It is easy to use and can keep track of four different experiments…I mean, recipes :) Plus, it clips on your belt so you can look really cool.



70 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

Cool thanks for the tip! I would try to steal it too ;)


71 Ashley @ My Food 'N' Fitness Diaries March 2, 2012

oh my goodness, that rawtella sounds right up my alley! and your “luxurious vanilla macadamia-almond nut butter”?!?! man oh man, i totally want some of that!

p.s. love your new header!


72 eileen March 2, 2012

Avacados….clementines….dandelions….rapini…. hemp and chia seeds w/ blackstrap molasses and tahini on toast…….. CLEAN tea ………….. and coffeeeeeeeeeeee


73 Liz March 2, 2012

I’ve never really liked grapefruit, but recently started tossing it in salads and now it’s usually in the basket/trolley whenever they’re on special. We do salads almost every night and last week I discovered a new blend of greens at WF – ‘Power Greens’ – it’s a salad starter with a combo of baby spinach, baby kale (not that this would happen, but if you’re kale didn’t grow that high in your spring garden Angela, maybe you could just call it this! :)), baby red chard and one other thing. It tastes really good!


74 Michelle March 2, 2012

Hummus! (As always!) lately I have been craving GF, vegan “pizza pops” made w/Daiya, mushrooms, spinach and tomatoes. I made them last summer and they were delicious! Wishing for the time to make again.
Banana Bread! Another craving
Trail mix! Sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, raisins and/or cranberries and pumpkin seeds. Simple yet yummy snack.
Smoothies! (As always!)
Soup! Whatever veggies I have in vegetable broth and a wee bit of miso- simple, fast, delicious!
Sweet potatoes. I had some AMAZING sweet potatoes in Cuba recently have have been truing to experience their sweet and simple taste again! Never as good as caribbean produce, though!

MUST try that rawtella.. Mmm… And THANKS for the Costco tip!! Will go there tomorrow!


75 Clare March 2, 2012

Annd I just added grapefruit and millet to my grocery list.
I’ve been loving sauteed onions lately! and clementines!


76 courtney March 2, 2012

i LOVE rawtella!!! i was sooo happy when i found it as i LOVED nutella before i became vegan. i melt it and dip popcorn in it…and fruit..and spread on toast..and of course straight from the jar…soooo yummy…

i’m on a homemade soup kick right now..cheap and lasts a week (for one person) great for a college student such as myself :)


77 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

on popcorn? You are a girl after my own heart.


78 Lauren @ Lawfully Wedded Wife March 2, 2012

The new header is BEAUTIFUL! Love it. This post makes me feel like I should really join a Costco! I’m always on the hunt for the perfect jarred marinara!


79 Alex @ Raw Recovery March 2, 2012

I’ve been obsessing over my vitamix and putting everything in it especially the raw cacao powder I just got. I’m also loving unsweetened applesauce topped with blueberries and some agave nectar heated up in the microwave. SO delicious


80 Rachel @ The Avid Appetite March 2, 2012

Ok I am heading out to get those vanilla beans asap! Amazing! I have never bought them before because they are so darn expensive…


81 Tracy March 2, 2012

I noticed your new header yesterday and really enjoy the imaging!

Foods I am really into right now:
English cucumbers used in green smoothies OR as is with Herbamare (I never heard of Herbamare before I started reading your blog and was pleasantly surprised to find it at one of our local markets on sale! I have been using it in and on everything and love it!), meyer lemons in green smoothies and in dressings like your tropical kale salad (thanks to a 4lb box from Costco) and organic fresh made salsa that you buy in tubs at the grocery store (I like mixing the salsa in with millet, black beans and spinach- so good! I found the recipe somewhere online but I don’t remember where…I believe it was called Mexican Millet).


82 Tracy March 2, 2012

As a side note, I saw the Zico Coconut Water is looking for professional/amateur athletes who want to partner with them and I thought of you. Here is a link http://team.zico.com/


83 Renae Robertson March 2, 2012

I can’t beleive with all the comments on this blog, the millet recipe wasn’t mentioned at all! Please post!


84 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

I linked to it in the post :) You can also find it on my recipage too!


85 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga March 2, 2012

$1 per vanilla bean or 10 beans for $15 is a great price…I need to pick those up because vanilla beans can be so outageous!

Rawtella..only had it once, years ago, and it’s delish!

I ate so many Mary’s Crackers, now I can’t even bring myself to look at them. <— My experience was the same, it was 2007ish for me. But in the past 6 mos, I've had them again here and there :)


86 AG (Our Lighter Footsteps) March 2, 2012

When I saw the pic of the rawtella I was intrigued and wanted to know more but then I was distracted by the Bick’s pickles. We cannot get Bick’s down in the U.S….darnit, I need to make my way back to Canada and quick!

I cannot get enough of avocados and raw red and yellow peppers lately! Oh, plus organic strawberries. It may be a little early but they are so juicy and delicious! OH OH OH, and wayfare cheese spreads! They are delicious on a grilled cheese! I am not a huge daiya fan (I can hear the gasps as I type this!) and so wayfare cheese spreads have filled the cheesy void!


87 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes March 2, 2012

Haha my mom always told me the same thing….wait still does! ;)


88 Kris | iheartwellness.com March 2, 2012

Love the Header doll!!! It is gorgeous with the grapefruit!!!

Ahhh these crackers sound fantastic and I KNOW what you mean about Mary’s….omg, I shopped Costco too much and ate too many….eeekkk!!!

Savory Nut Butter?! You’re making me drool!!



89 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning March 2, 2012

Ooh, the winter header is so pretty!! Glad you didn’t hurt yourself!
So many things on that list sound awesome.. and it makes me think that I need to go the vanilla bean route. They are always expensive at the stores I shop at!
I’m horrible about keeping any plants alive- herbs included! Good for you for having rosemary that is alive!


90 Amanda March 2, 2012

I’m wish you on the grapefruit obsession. I’ve been consistently eating one, sometimes two, a day for the last several weeks and I can’t get enough! I just recently posted a kale, avocado grapefruit salad that’s awesome. I should really put fruit in my salads more often.


91 Amy March 2, 2012

I am all into bowls these days, particularly bowls with peanut sauce! Grain+bean+tofu+vegetables+sauce=heaven. Kale, sweet potato, quinoa, chickpeas, and tofu is a favorite of mine.


92 Kaila @ healthyhelper March 2, 2012

Can I just say… the new header is my favorite picture you have ever taken! Those colors are incredible!! They literally pop off my computer screen! Not to mention…so many of my fave foods are included!!


93 Carolina March 2, 2012

Oh.my.god. Rawtella?? With a deep rich flavour, made with coconut sugar and not cane sugar? Somebody out there, tell me where, WHERE I can find this in Montreal, please!!!? I don’t think we have organic garage here :(
Angela, I’m eating your millet mushroom bowl right now, and I have to say you have changed my views on this cute little grain with a cute little name :). I was never a fan of it’s crunchy texture, but it seems too be growing on me!


94 Laura March 2, 2012

I love the new header! So refreshing:) I”m not gonna lie . . . I am still all over kale. It started in the summer and has never really taken a hiatus since. And raw mushrooms for the last few months have for some reason been increasingly part of my daily eats. I was excited to see the recipe for mushrooms and kale on your blog this week, and it is definitely on the hit list!


95 Stephanie @ Legally Blinde March 2, 2012

Love your pose in the picture! My mom pleaded with me to wear something other than stretch pants for years – even tried to get my baby-sitter to convince me jeans were cool – but I held out until middle school, haha. That Rawtella sounds so amazing, I’m going to keep an eye out for it, although it might be dangerous if I actually do find it :) I’m loving grapefruit, too – such a good winter fruit. I’m also loving sweet potatoes. Oh, and Green Monsters! I’ve made your original Green Monster recipe 3 times this past week and I can’t get enough!


96 Ileana March 2, 2012

How did you start liking grapefruit? I’ve never liked the flavor…

Wish I could try that raw version of Nutella. Happy Friday, Angela!


97 Vicki March 2, 2012

You can find a clip-on timer at the Dollar store :)


98 Moni'sMeals March 2, 2012

Great list. I have got to try that Rawtella! I am loving everything at my Farmers Market for example, still on the Winter Squash, Apples, Chickamoyas, Brussels, Carrots, and Purple Cabbage. Pretty much… your beautiful HEADER!



99 Natasha March 2, 2012

about the clip on timer…
here is one that could work for cooking AND working out (if you do interval training). :)
Let me know what you think!


100 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

thanks I will check it out!


101 char eats greens March 2, 2012

I need to get to Costco ASAP! I have a membership, but hardly ever use it before it’s either 45 mins east from me (Newmarket) or 35 mins south of me (Brampton). So unless I have a REALLY good excuse (food just doesn’t seem to be enough for the husband…yet) for venturing that far, I don’t get to. I’m really surprised Guelph doesn’t have a Costco yet – it would make it so convenient to stop there after school if it did.

I am absolutely loving kale (but that never changes haha) and ginger. I don’t think my life would be complete without ginger now – and you can mention that to the husband; maybe he’ll try to sneak under the arm where ginger isn’t by taking me to Costco!


102 char eats greens March 2, 2012

before should be ‘because’ – it’s Friday :P


103 Andrea March 2, 2012

Your header is beautiful Angela! I have to ask, did you eat the produce after you photographed it? I would have!

I WAS loving some tangerine curd that I made, but now it’s gone. :) (I wonder if you can veganize curd?) And BRUSSEL SPROUTS! I cannot get enough of those little “cabbage cabbages” :)


104 Suzanne H March 2, 2012
105 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

I just tried to buy some and they don’t ship to Canada! Bummer. Maybe I can try directly from the source. Thanks for the tip!


106 Jenny@vegetarianhatesvegetables March 2, 2012

I was wondering when you were going to change that! It looks amazing! I love me some ruby red grapefruit, too. I’ve pretty much given up on gardening- maybe I just need to try out my garage, too!


107 Dana March 2, 2012

I LOVE the new header! and now I really want to buy some millet. It’s a grain I always want to try but always seem to forget about….


108 carla March 2, 2012

Hi Angela,

you need an gymboss interval timer. YOu can get one here and also use it for tabata Workouts or running. They even got one in pink ;) I´ve got the cameo one, because I thought it was white lol. They have a really nice customer service. http://www.gymboss.com/


109 Nichole March 2, 2012

I need that Rawtella.


110 elizabeth March 2, 2012

Ready to get excited?

I bought 65 vanilla beans on ebay from someone in Philly for $17 including shipping. They are great quality (I educated myself on vanilla beans before my purchase). I made my own vanilla extract with it and gave it away as Christmas gifts.

I blogged about it here:


111 Miriam March 2, 2012

I love rosemary too! I am always amazed at what a difference it makes with the flavor of a dish!! Love this post Ange!


112 Nikki @ Active Vegetarian March 2, 2012

The new page header looks Great!!!


113 Deirdre @ ladies holiday March 2, 2012

Can’t wait for your cookbook…I haven’t even tasted it yet and I am already craving the macademia nut butter. The photos of the veg in the snow are lovely! So bold and vibrant!


114 jaimie March 2, 2012

so jealous you are doing the chilly! i have been training like crazy for the chilly half and my itb injury flared up a couple weeks ago. couldnt walk for a couple days and been going down the stairs on my bum :(

good luck! i’ll be there in spirit


115 Char @ www.charskitchen.ca March 2, 2012

lol! I love reading your posts :P Rawtella sounds amazing. My cashew butter jars look like that shortly after I buy them.

It’s going to sound a little lame, but I’m obsessed with oatmeal lately. I didn’t eat it for a few years (no idea why), and now I can’t stop baking it, cooking it with almond mylk, trying new flavours, etc. Oh, and roasted veggies! I am all over my roasted veggies lately (thought not in my oatmeal….haha!).


116 Karen March 2, 2012

I too get into ruts with my favorites of the moment/month/season both clothes and food. I’m actually super into millet too, which surprised me given I’m usually a bigger fan of quiona. And, kale-nooch salad w/avocado and white beans – warm and mushy! Oh, I have a feeling your Tabisco laced hummus (which I finally tried) is going to be a contender!

What a cool/gorgeous winter scene you shot for your “late, late winter” header :)


117 Ellie@Fit for the Soul March 2, 2012

hhehehe love the new header, it’s so bright and purty! You always throw me off with your new headers, and I end up thinking that I’m on some other blog~:P

And seriously, I’m thrilled for you and your new cookbook adventure…I feel like I’m the one writing it! Only, I’m not….lol. And I love grapefruit! I think I always have, but I just don’t get it often b/c it’s pricier than other fruits.


118 Estelle March 2, 2012

I bought the same vanilla at my local Costco for $12…and I’m in Canada. Hmmmm…


119 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 2, 2012

Really? Hmm, maybe I got the price wrong! I’ll have to check next time I go.


120 Emilia March 2, 2012

The rawtella looks amazing! I’m seriously inspired to create some of my own nut butter with ac coffee flavor, how hard can it be? The savoury nut butter also looks fantastic (I, too, am obsessed with rosemary), I’ll be eagerly awaiting the recipe! Not to mention, the millet. I’ve been trying to broaden my grain horizons and I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for that one!


121 Stephany March 2, 2012

Currently, here are the top 5:
Eden Organic Spaghetti sauce
M&M Veggie Burgers
Green monsters with Arthur’s green energy, spinach or kale


122 Mara March 2, 2012

How do I get me some Rawtella? Love the new header!!!


123 Robyn March 2, 2012

I love grapefruit! Eating one instantly gives me a boost of energy! No need for coffee when you have fresh citrus!


124 Susan March 2, 2012

Kale – chips, in soup, stews, and especially your weekend glo Kale salad; beets; green monsters and chia seeds
Oh yeah and goji berries too – someone just suggested adding them to oatmeal – may have to try that this weekend


125 Nicole March 2, 2012

You can get organic vanilla beans for 75 cents each in the bulk section at Big Carrot!


126 Misty March 2, 2012

Plain greek yogurt is my current love! And myfitnesspa.com!


127 Liz @ Tip Top Shape March 2, 2012

I’ve never heard of rawtella before!! It sounds delicious :D


128 Elizabeth March 2, 2012

Your veggie burgers, hummus, (ok, all your recipes) mary’s crackers, fresh salsa, Navel oranges, green monsters…can you tell I’m relatively new to your blog? HA!


129 Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers March 2, 2012

I haven’t tried millet, but since you’re the one who turned me onto wheat berries a few months back, I think I need to give it a shot!


130 Becky March 2, 2012

I’ve been on a grapefruit kick for months now – I have one every weekday as part of my morning break at work. Just peel it and eat the sections like an orange. So sweet and so perfect during the winter.


131 Amber K March 2, 2012

The new header is absolutely beautiful! I love the look of snow, but I’m glad there’s none actually near me. Way too cold!

I totally go in and out of food kicks. Lately it’s been overnight oatmeal, green monsters, gluten-free Zing bars and apples. Buckets full of apples!


132 Vegyogini March 2, 2012

Those nut butters look delicious! Will you be enlisting recipe testers for this book?


133 Hilliary @Happily Ever Healthy March 2, 2012

Your luxurious vanilla macadamia-almond nut butter sounds delicious! Cannot wait for the recipe! have a fabulous weekend!


134 Dreena Burton March 2, 2012

Great post Angela! I love blogging about new (and well-loved) foods, it’s fun to share the finds!! I have never seen that rawtella butter, but I would <3 something like that – at least one without coffee – have never liked coffee. oh well!

As for spilling the beans… BEANS! Love beans so much, and this time of year they are so hearty – lentils, kidney, chickpeas, black beans, and more.

Will try to work on that grapefruit love. ;)


135 Natasha March 2, 2012

mmm, grapefruit sounds so good right about now! and I’ve always wanted to try/see/smell a vanilla bean. What/how do you cook with them?


136 Matt Lurie March 2, 2012

Hi Angela,

Thanks for supporting the store. I try to stock as many unique and interesting “healthy” products as possible and do my best to allow anyone to eat “healthier for less”. Look forward to seeing you in the store and great Blog!

Matt Lurie
President & CEO
Organic Garage


137 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 3, 2012

Thanks Matt, so nice to hear from you! I’m so impressed by your store…I did not expect such a huge selection. We also thought the prices were very competitive and cheaper than stores like WF. Keep up the great work!


138 Sarah Williams March 2, 2012

I am in love with this new header!! Its so fresh and feels like spring(even though its a wnter one!hehe)


139 StoriesAndSweetPotatoes March 2, 2012

That winter header is my favorite yet! I say leave it up all summer just for balance. :)


140 amanda March 2, 2012

Wow! I love the new header. So fresh and bright! I was obsessed with grapefruit this time last year, while pregnant, yum! Right now I can’t get enough of cauliflower mash with miso gravy, millet porridge, avocado/tempeh/arugula sandwiches and chocolate chocolate chocolate (my husband and I make your no bake chocolate torte recipe on a very regular basis!) :)


141 Krystal March 2, 2012

I feel you, totally obsessed with grapefruits right now! I am also loving carrot fries which I make by just cutting up some fresh carrots and grilling them up on the stovetop.


142 Wendy Irene March 2, 2012

The rawtella looks amazing! I need to keep my eye out for it. Have a great weekend!


143 Anna @ The Guiltless Life March 2, 2012

Ooooh wow rawtella – how have I not heard of this till now? And yes, yes, yes to millet and that marinara sauce and CHEAP vanilla beans! Hallelujah!


144 Melissa March 2, 2012

Bahaha! Angela, I had the same outfits! The leggings/skirt/top combo was so fashion forward. As I recall mine had striped leggings, a starred skirt and polka dotted shirt. God, if only that were acceptable to wear again. Thanks for the laugh :)


145 Rebecca March 2, 2012

Cabbage, kale, and green smoothies!! I read on http://www.nourishingmeals.com/, the whole life nutrition kitchen blog, that it increases your antioxidant production for 72 hours after you eat it. As if I needed another reason to make your over the rainbow salad…which I’ve made twice this week. Kale chips are baking in my oven as we speak, and my massive food crush on green monster smoothies is out of control. The best part of waking up is 3 massive handfuls of spinach in my cup. Your blog is such an inspiration even for omnivores like me.


146 Ariel March 2, 2012

I’m obsessed with your creamy avocado pesto. cept ive gotten to the point where it doesn’t make it to the pasta. it goes straight from the food processor into my mouth.


147 Sarah Grubbs March 2, 2012

KALE, anytime, anyway (mostly raw). My sister and I find ourselves hiding it from our men while making dinner. We each have developed the habit of eating about 1/3 of the salad before dinner then giving our husbands just a lightly larger portion so they think we are self-sacrificing ;) It is PERFECT with some Bragg’s Amino Acids, olive oil, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, and black hawaiian kosher salt. DELICIOUS, you will find yourself hiding it all for yourself!


148 Christie March 2, 2012

Loving your new header – its gorgeous! I can’t get enough peanut butter at the moment, I could actually eat it all day every day! I recently bought some FIjian style tamarind chutney that is absolutely to die for and has been making a regular appearance at dinner time! Yum!!


149 Zoe@lose weight and gain health March 2, 2012

Your header is amazing – one of the best I have seen.


150 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 3, 2012

Thanks Zoe!


151 luminousvegans March 2, 2012

Mmmm, that vanilla macadamia-almond nut butter sounds heavenly!


152 Sarah March 2, 2012

hmm the list goes on:
pickled okra, refried black beans, kefir,fig butter, and sweet potato anything,
pop chips and cottage cheese too!


153 Megan Wall March 2, 2012

ooooh that mushroom gravy looks divine! I now know what I’m doing with my giant jar of dried wild mushroms from costco!
Right now I’m loving coconut milk in my daily morning smoothies~ a hint of tropicalness in wintery Saskatchewan.
I’ve been experimenting with chickpea chocolate chip cookies :D as well as teff flour in my baking!
aaannndd when I was in Phoenix over Feburary break I stocked up on specialty chocolate(that is so cheap down there!) I bought this brand I hadn’t heard of called Dolfin at World Market: dark chocolate infused with pink peppercorn and lavender! How romantic! I swooned and proceeded to the check out, along with a container of Ghirardelli cocao non-existent in this poor poor province.
Saskatchewan is the current economic superpower in Canada….with no chocolate? HOW?
:P how’s it over yonder East?


154 Wendy March 2, 2012

Roasted Brussels sprouts is my current passion -cannot get enough!

The marinara sauce is to die for – my Costco hasn’t been
Stocking it lately – I think I know why now – supply issues! Wonder if amazon will ship to canada?


155 olya March 2, 2012

Chocolate! lol


156 Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) March 2, 2012

I loooooove grapefruit!


157 LizAshlee March 2, 2012

I love millet..it’s so versatile and good for you! I have also been enjoying grapefruits!!! Anything with alkalinizing effects is welcomed this way! :) Happy Friday!


158 Cara March 2, 2012

I love grapefruits, but they’re such a pain to prepare–do you just attack sections with a spoon? Does that work? I’ve always had to cut around the edge with a sharp knife, and then each of the little sections … and half an hour later, I get my snack.

I have lately been obsessed with chocolate almond butter (your fault) and Olive Oil Pasta with Walnuts, Lentils & Red Peppers (also your fault!)!


159 Jennifer March 2, 2012

I’ve been on Honeybells(cross between grapefruit and tangerine) lately. Mostly because I have a BIIIIIIIIIG box to eat. And I must tell you that Hubby wanted to know if I was making more onion rings tonight- he loved them!!!!!!!!!! I want to know if you’re gonna try to make some Rawtella or whatever it is….sounds like something I’d love!! Mmmm, feeling a bit like some Chocolate Dreams. Thanks for all you do Ange!


160 Nobody March 2, 2012

ATM i’m kind of addicted to chickpeas. i think it started with your recipe for “fried” chickpeas. i recently made a curry with them that i’ve been craving for 2 weeks straight. insanity.


161 Erin Wissig March 2, 2012

I’m also crushing on vanilla beans but was weeping when I saw how much you paid for them. I know you love buying in bulk and when I went on a vanilla everything spree over the holidays I purchased all of my beans from vanillaproductsusa.com you can get 1lb of Bourbon Beans for $50.00 that’s 100 beans at .50 cents each. They are really nice quality and they have different types and quality levels.


162 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 3, 2012

Thanks Erin! I’m not sure if I need that many beans all at once. Don’t they dry out if you don’t use them within a certain amount of time?


163 Colleen March 2, 2012

My current obsession is dumping tahini on everything.
And eating barley like oatmeal (without tahini).
And, Angela, I cracked up when I read your bit about the timer–mine broke a few months ago and I keep burning everything too! (Sources tell me I can get a new one at Target, Walmart, Kmart–and that store you all have up there–Canadian Tire? I love that place.)


164 Jen March 2, 2012

We must have read the same article about vanilla beans. I am not a member of Costcos so I found out that you can get really nice vanilla beans from the Vanilla Food Company (http://www.vanillafoodcompany.ca/) in Canada. I ordered the organic vanilla beans and they are amazing.


165 Marlene March 2, 2012

My favorite place is the Organic Garage!! Such a great place to find so many great things, especially if you have dietary restrictions. On the automatic email list. BTW the header is gorgeous!


166 Samantha March 3, 2012

I have been LOVING grapefruit too!! I can’t get enough of it! I had to steal my parents grapefruit spoons the last time I was over there to visit; makes them so much easier to eat!
I buy my vanilla beans in bulk from amazon. I believe I got about 110 for $40! I was worried that they would be dried out and a complete waste, but they are surprisingly the thickest, juiciest, most flavorful vanilla beans I have used in my life!! It’s so hard to not put them in everything I make. They do make oatmeal about a billion times better though ;)


167 Kelly March 3, 2012

My food obsessions are: your vegan brownies (I cut them into 25 little squares & allow myself one square a day); the BBQ chili you made for New Year’s day; vegan overnight oats; green monsters; brazil nuts and finally, Mary’s Gone Crackers. I have yet to try making your recent cracker recipe, but that’s in the cards soon ; ) Good luck with your race on Sunday!


168 Shelby (everydayvegangirl) March 3, 2012

I am loving oranges right now. I use the juice in dressings, cut up the segments for salads and eat them plain for snacks. I made a really good beet and orange quinoa salad the other day! http://everydayvegangirl.blogspot.com/2012/02/roasted-beet-and-orange-quinoa-salad.html
I can’t get enough oranges these days!


169 greenthyme March 3, 2012

Great post! This was a fun one. Thanks for sharing the info about the Costco vanilla beans! Who would have thought? I’m going to have to check that out. And, are we going to have to wait for the cookbook for that vanilla macadamia almond butter?! My mouth is watering. That sounds amazing. I’m loving the new winter header. Is that a blood orange I spy? My new favorite obsession, although I think you’ve convinced me to give grapefruit another try! :) Thanks Angela! Keep up the great work!


170 Maggie March 3, 2012

Rawtella sounds so good, we don’t have that kind of products here!!! That’s why I’m so excited with my trip to The Netherlands, to try things like that!!! :P


171 Claudia March 3, 2012

One word…avocados…..*sigh*


172 Anna March 3, 2012

I’ve been loving chai tea with a bit of almond milk, plain oatmeal with flax, and cooked mushrooms/onions. :) Btw, definitely love rosemary too!


173 Carla March 3, 2012

Red leaf lettuce. I have a salad everyday for lunch and nothing compares to red leaf lettuce!


174 Angelique March 3, 2012

Hi! You might want to check out Organic Vanilla Bean Company. I believe they are out of stock at the moment but they usually have FANTASTIC prices on organic vanilla beans and powder.
Like around $1 US for 2 beans (or more if you get grade B),
especially great w/them being organic.


175 Melissa March 3, 2012

My newest obsession is Coconut’s Secret coconut butter. This stuff is spectacular(if you like coconut that is). Mash into a baked sweet potato and top with toasted pumpkin seeds. An almost perfect lunch with a side salad.


176 Jennifer @ Peanut Butter and Peppers March 3, 2012

I have been on such a grapefruit and orange kick lately. I don’t know what it is, but I have been eating them non-stop, at least two oranges a day and yesterday it was a Pomelo, which is a Huge sweet grapefruit. Love all the citrus. Oh and blood oranges, my new find that I love! I love everything you picked here!! You inspired me to make some peanut butter this weekend!!!


177 Danielle March 3, 2012

Love the header — it’s so colorful!

As for that sauce…I am definitely intrigued. I am Italian and have an aversion to any bottled sauces because I’ve been spoiled with homemade for my entire life, but I *may* have to give this a try for convenience’s sake…and the fact that I have a Costco membership :) Thanks for the recommendation!


178 Dena @ 40 Fit In The Mitt March 3, 2012

My Grandmother lives in Arizona and she has her own Tree, they are so delicious and beautiful, I have never found one in Michigan that compares.


179 Kathy March 3, 2012

Lately, ground coffee has been finding it’s way into my foods! I made some coffee granola and a coffee buckwheat muffin (which failed but still tasted pretty good)!


180 Tamara March 3, 2012

LOVE the new header!!!
I’m obsessing over salads right now, I also can’t get enough Currants & Pumpkin seeds…. but it all may change as I’m going to my fav store tomorrow & that can only be trouble, can’t wait to see what kind of special treats they have for me!!


181 Laura March 3, 2012

Your new header has to be one of the most beautiful, fun, inspirational food loving headers I’ve seen all over the blog-world! Simply LOVE it! You’re beautiful, Angela and I adore your blog! XO


182 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 3, 2012

aww thank you Laura!


183 dara March 3, 2012

Hi Angela,
I noticed the persimmon in your photo. What do you bake with these? I can’t seem to get over the taste when they are raw.



184 Michelle (Better with Berries) March 3, 2012

I’ve been obsessing over avocado lately! I used to not be a big fan. Mostly because I THOUGHT I didn’t like them. I hadn’t really given them a try. Now I’m adding them to everything!


185 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2012

used to think I hated avocado too…until I really tried them!


186 Carmen March 3, 2012

I really LOVE the new header! Awesome Job!


187 Gail March 4, 2012

I’m also crazy about White Linen Sauce. I live in fear that Costco will stop carrying it but I was told by one of the check out people last time I was there that it’s one of their best selling items so as long as it’s available to them it’ll be on their shelves. I use it in soups, chili’s and as a base for homemade pizza and occasionally I even put it on pasta!


188 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2012

That doesnt surprise me one bit that it’s one of their best sellers…once you try it, you get hooked!


189 Kaleigh March 4, 2012

I’m currently addicted to pickled beets (so easy to make!)

But really – it’s your millet and mushroom gravy that has me obsessed! I made it twice last week…with the left overs for lunch. I had all about given up on the millet I had bought, because I could never cook it right (always came out mushy and over cooked). Your suggestion of toasting itself first was exactly what was needed!

*also…still obsessed with your mac and cheese. Will always be obsessed. Thank goodness it requires lots of clean up (2 pots, baking dish, blender…that’s a lot for me) or else I would be making it every day.


190 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2012

So glad to hear that Kaleigh, thanks for the feedback!


191 Joann@womaninreallife March 4, 2012

I love the new header. The colours are gorgeous. I also liked the peek at your current faves. I definitely want to try the Rawtella. Sounds awesome.


192 Annie March 4, 2012

That marinara looks delicious! I never have time to make my own so I’m always trying to find a good jarred kind. Do they sell it anyplace besides Cosco?

So obsessed with clementines right now. I eat about 6 a day. I don’t know how I’m not sick of them yet!


194 Kelly M March 4, 2012

I LOVE your new header, it’s beautiful and bright!
My current obsession right is the wonderful smoothie. It doesn’t matter what’s in it. If it’s icy, green and a little fruity I love it. I’ve been big on drinking one everyday for a while now but I’m pregnant and my whole love for leafy greens went on hold for the first 5-6 months. I’m just getting back to loving greens again and I can’t get enough! They are my energy saver! One of my favorite add-ins is fresh parsley. My other recent obsession is mustard…I totally blame the pregnancy on that one.


195 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2012

Thanks Kelly!


196 Lexi @ Cura Personalis Foodie March 4, 2012

Juicy grapefruits (peeled and eaten in segments, not cut!) haha. Also, winter greens, brussel sprouts, and wait for it…….NUT BUTTER!


197 Jessica @ Hungrygems March 4, 2012

New winter header? Fab. Never too late for delicious food in a photo anywhere, anytime.

Rawtella? Fully engaged. Research complete. Scheduled the hour road trip to my nearest retailer. It will take this long anyways to negotiate with myself which flavors to purchase.

Obsession? MacroBars. Don’t google them unless you are prepared to drool in longing or spend some bling to ship some to you. My babies: peanut butter protein or granola coconut. I’ll give a shout out to the almond butter carob as well.


198 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 4, 2012

I had a macrobar once and almost died! soooo good


199 Anastasia@healthymamainfo.com March 4, 2012

Such a cute picture! Thanks for a great post!


200 Courtney March 4, 2012

Brussels Sprouts. HATED…I MEAN HATED them growing up. I’m convinced that if I try new things, I am a living, breathing example to my three children to try new things. I stepped up to the daunting challenge to try Brussels Sprouts this past Fall….I’ve become “Sam I Am”. I’d eat them any where, any way. To my peeps I say…..”BRING IT”!


201 Sarah @ The Healthy Diva March 4, 2012

loving ABC butter (almond brazils and cashews)…totally know what you mean about nutella! I love the stuff but avoid it cuz of the dairy…I might try my hand at making a dairy free version


202 Debbie c March 4, 2012

Love that you mention millet. I absolutely love it and have been eating it for about 20 years. When I tell people about it they look at me like I am crazy…they think i mean the bird food. Anyway, your recipe looks incredible especially since I am also obsessed with kale these days.

I have been obsessing over Kitchen Table Bakers aged parmesan crisps. I’m sorry I ever tried them. Since I basically eat low carb they are a great snack and incredibly tasty and addicting.

Also craving buckwheat lately.


203 Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed March 4, 2012

I always do that with music. I find an album I love, listen to it over and over, and then I can’t listen to it anymore!

I usually think grapefruits are just too sour… maybe I’m not eating the right ones? Hmmm.

I’m pretty obsessed with sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms… I throw them on everything!


204 Tida March 5, 2012

Articokes!!! I am addicted, I’ve have been adding them to anything and everything (salads, veggie burgers, sandwiches, quasadillas, wraps………)


205 MasPublicHealth March 5, 2012

LOVE the new header! Hope it does stay up until Labor Day. :) Although, it will be funny to see throughout summer, with the snow in it. Maybe it’ll keep us all cool.


206 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 5, 2012

hehe :) true true! Thanks, I’m glad you like it.


207 Katy March 5, 2012

When I was little, my favorite outfit was a bright yellow matching Power Ranger sweater. Fortunately, my taste in clothes has gotten better.

Awesome lists of healthy foods! I really need to start getting back into healthy eating.


208 Elizabeth March 5, 2012

Oh – I love Organic Garage!!! I haven’t been there for so long…I must make a trip. And I must make a note to pick up that yummy spread. Coffee and chocolate – how can you go wrong? White Linen is our favorite from Costco. I always stock up too. My husband makes an amazing marinara sauce but this is a very very close second. We had it last night with some sauteed garlic and mushrooms and red pepper flakes for our our penne arrabiata. Yum.


209 Carrie March 5, 2012

You need some Saladmaster cookware so you don’t have to worry about burning your grains!


210 Kris March 5, 2012

Love the new header :)


211 Kayti March 6, 2012

My Costco doesn’t carry the White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce. :( I wonder if I can call and request it. I live in Ohio, US. I’m about to look online and see if I can buy it.


212 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 6, 2012

bummer! I heard it is one of their best sellers, so maybe it will be easy to convince them…goodluck


213 Kristi March 8, 2012

Im obsessed with overnight oatmeal with chia seeds, cocoa powder, almond milk and a banana in it. Green smoothies, butternut squash, natural peanut butter and kale have been obsessions lately too. I have recently gotten over over my pumpkin obsession, but it may kick in again soon. :)


214 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 8, 2012

haha I got over pumpkin too…tried bringing it back a couple w/e’s ago, but I was still sick of it!


215 Lilah March 9, 2012

Hey if you haven’t tried it before cinnamon is AMAZING on grapefruit


216 oceanside orthodontist March 11, 2012

That Rawtella looks divine! I’m obsessed with nutella, but the idea of getting a maximum flavor of something raw and similar excites me. And I didn’t know that you can find packed vanilla beans in certani grocery stores, I’m going to file through ours and see if they offer the same thing.


217 Val R March 13, 2012

I find if you segment the grapefruit it is really worth the effort as it eliminates most of the pith (white stuff) therefore not making them so bitter, it really is worth the effort, (until your man and the kids want what your having)!


218 Robin March 14, 2012

My *favorite* timer is the Polder timer. http://amzn.to/xkMT9b
Not a clip-on, but on a neck string which actually works better for me. It has a time, count-up/stopwatch, and clock. Now you’ll never burn your millet…or anything else!


219 Chelsea March 26, 2012

sweet potatoes! it’s embarrassing how many i eat in a week.


220 Angela March 27, 2012

Love the post. It’s inspired me to create some new things with grapefruit!

By the way, for amazing fresh vanilla beans, you can buy directly from this supplier (and they ship, just about free, to canada!)



221 AK March 27, 2012

Best place to get Vanilla ( and it’s a local Canadian company from Vancouver)


Love the post, by the way. Am itching to try this new no-peeling beets before roasting, business!


222 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 28, 2012

thanks I will check them out!!


223 Meral April 9, 2012

First, I love your blog! I am a Jewish wife that loves discovering more vegan (or parve) recipes. However, I wanted to inform you that #4 Five Seed Rosemary and Garlic Crackers are actually dairy, because they contain a Jewish symbol for dairy on it. I am not sure if you familiar with Kosher laws or symbols, but if you want to know more to double check your vegan products, here is a link…. http://www.kosherquest.org/symbols.php


224 Angela (Oh She Glows) April 9, 2012

Thanks for the heads up, I will certainly look into it!


225 Julie August 1, 2012

I had no idea they had vanilla beans at Costco!


226 Vegan Radhika Sarohia December 20, 2012

Lately for me, it’s been butternut squash, spaghetti squash, basil/pesto, kale and bananas. But I’m branching out haha! I wanna try making vegan turnip hashbrowns and definitely want to make some sort of beets recipe :)


227 Kseniya March 9, 2013

Where is your silverware from? I love it!


228 Angela (Oh She Glows) March 9, 2013

thank you! It’s from a bunch of different places :) second hand stores often for antique looking food props.


229 Debra July 25, 2013

Completely obsessed with the White Linen Collection Marinara Sauce!! I can’t get enough of it! I have a single jar left in my pantry and I am in a panic! That’s how I found your blog. I was googling it. With my continued obsession with delicious, fruity, olive oil, and of course garlic, I still ‘doctor’ this sauce. A bit of sautéed onions and garlic on olive oil and a bit of salt and pepper. Sometimes add red pepper flakes during the sautéing.

Happy eating!
