Exciting News! Plus, The Nourish + Glow Miracle Bowl

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 24, 2014

A couple weeks after Christmas, I presented Eric with a small box wrapped in Christmas paper.

“I have a Christmas gift for you that wasn’t ready in time!”

He was a bit confused at first, but any confusion quickly faded at the proposition of another gift. Who doesn’t like a random gift in the dead of winter?

“Did you make it?”

“umm, part of it….just open it!”

I propped myself on the couch beside him with a nervous grin on my face, trying to calm the heart beating out of my chest. No such luck. My heart was about to explode.

He unwrapped the box – carefully and painfully slow as he usually does – and then opened the lid and lifted out a piece of clothing covered in tissue…

“Ange, are you pregnant??”

Tears were already streaming down my face and I could barely choke out, “We’re having a baby!”

And then he passed out. Just kidding!

After we screamed/hugged/celebrated, I showed him not one, not two, but four positive pregnancy tests because I’m a bit neurotic like that.

We’re simply over the moon with excitement and can’t wait to be parents! We have so much love to give this little one. And Sketchie is going to be the coolest big brother ever (obviously). I’m 14 weeks today, due on September 22nd…which feels so soon! I still can’t believe my body is growing a baby in there. Seeing tiny arms and legs wiggling around on the ultrasound and hearing a heartbeat is just the most unbelievable experience. I already love this little one more than I could imagine.

It’s been a wild start to 2014 in the Liddon household. We got pregnant, bought a house, my first cookbook launched, Sketchie had surgery and was diagnosed, I came down with the flu, taped two TV segments, worked on a new business venture, and we’ve been doing major renovations on the new house and packing for a move early April. Ok, scratch the packing part because I’ve only packed 2 boxes so far (oops). I’m hopeful that the second trimester will be less eventful, but knowing we got through all that makes me feel like we can handle whatever comes our way. Sometimes you just gotta take it day by day and keep the faith that it will all work out in the end. I’m counting my blessings every day and trying not to worry about things out of my control. Like pregnancy hormones…ha!

Today, I’m celebrating our baby-to-be with this multi-vitamin-in-a-bowl. Talk about a nutrient-packed salad. I need all the energy I can get these days. This recipe won out over a triple layer celebration cake, but I still think that cake might have to make an appearance at some point. Despite the wicked all-day nausea of the first trimester, I’ve still had an appetite for most vegetables which I’m so grateful for. Well, except mushrooms. I still can’t do mushrooms! Some day, I’m confident we will reunite. For now, Eric is having fun saying, “I told you mushrooms were gross!”

Groan.

This recipe has a few things going on because I wanted to make it extra special. The homemade hummus and salad dressing can be made in advance to save prep time and cut down on dishes. You can always use store-bought versions too. I’m going to share the hummus and dressing recipes in separate recipe cards and then share the salad at the end.

Don’t worry that the dressing in the salad photos looks a bit different than the dressing I’m sharing below. I initially made a balsamic tahini dressing (the darker dressing in the photos), but I ended up not loving it. This creamy lemon dill dressing that I made after compliments the salad much more so it’s the one I’m sharing today. I took a picture of it below so you can see what it looks like.

Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, nut-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free

By

A quick and easy flavourful hummus that comes together in minutes! If you don't have any sun-dried tomatoes on hand, feel free to make it without.

Yield
1 1/4 cups
Prep time
Cook time
0 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 small garlic clove
  • 2 tablespoons oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1 (15-ounce) can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, or to taste
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • drizzle of olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt or pink Himalayan sea salt, or to taste

Directions:

  1. Mince garlic in a food processor.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the salt) and process until smooth. Add salt to taste and process again until combined.

Nutrition Information

Tips:

Tip: For a super-smooth hummus, pop off the chickpea skins (and discard) before beginning.

Creamy Lemon Dill Dressing

Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, refined sugar-free, soy-free

By

This creamy lemon-dill dressing comes together in seconds and it's such a fresh compliment to a spring salad. If you aren't a dill fan, feel free to leave it out. It's still tasty either way! I recommend making this dressing the day before you plan to use it (or at least a few hours before if you can) because it thickens up in the fridge when chilled (however, it's not absolutely necessary to chill it first). This dressing is adapted from Vegan Yumminess.

Yield
2/3 cup dressing
Soak time
2-8 hours
Prep time
Cook time
0 Minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup raw cashews, soaked
  • 3-4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (I used 4 tbsp)
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill (see note)
  • 1/2 small garlic clove
  • 1/4 + 1/8 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

Directions:

  1. Soak the cashews in water for 2-8 hours before starting (to soften). You can skip this step if you have a Vitamix. Drain and rinse cashews before starting.
  2. Add all the ingredients into a high speed blender and blend until completely smooth. Adjust ingredients to taste if desired.

Nutrition Information

Tips:

Notes: You can use dried dill weed instead of fresh dill. Add it in small amounts at a time, to taste (I would start with 1/4-1/2 teaspoon and add from there).

I prefer my dressing tangy, so I opt for more lemon juice. For a less tangy dressing, you can reduce the amount I used or you can add a touch of sweetener to taste.

For a nut-free dressing, try my Lightened-Up Lemon Tahini Dressing.

  • Large scoop of Perfected Chickpea Salad (from OSG cookbook) or Flaked Almond Tuna Salad (link below)
  • 1/2 tablespoon hemp seeds
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepita seeds
  • Creamy Lemon Dill Dressing (link below)

Directions:

  1. Add greens into a large bowl. Layer on your desired toppings and drizzle on the dressing and garnish with hemp/pepita seeds.

I just checked out your cookbook from our local library this past weekend and fell in love with you and your husband. So glad to hear you are going to be parents; you are younger versions of these older parents! Good luck as you enter this most marvelous adventure of your lives. Your little one is very lucky. Keep inspiring us to be healthy people.

I have NO idea how you’ve been able to do everything that you have! I’m a zombie the first 14 weeks–all I want to do sleep & all I can eat is crap. It’s very depressing for me, but it sounds like you’ve had a pretty great & eventful first trimester.

Congrats. You have so much to look forward to. Having a child will change your life in so many wonderful/exciting/difficult ways.

I can’t believe you did all that in your first trimester, I was a useless blob for most of it! I can finally eat vegetables again now, but I still have a mushroom aversion too – it sucks, because I usually love mushrooms, both to pick and to eat. Hopefully it’ll be better by the time morel season starts in May.

Omg congratulations!!! I don’t know what’s been happening but you are the third person I follow online that became pregnant! I guess Mother Nature has been too busy helping fertility which would explain the terrible weather lately. Anyway, I wish best of health and luck!

Congratulations! I’m just about 10 weeks pregnant and I am still dying from the all-day morning sickness. I’m super impressed you can eat veggies! I’m afraid I’ve barely eaten anything healthy since I found out I was pregnant. Oops! Hopefully that will change in my 2nd trimester! ;)

September 22 is my brother AND my cousin’s birthday. Good day! By the way, my mom has always told me she had a super aversion to mushrooms when she was pregnant. Apparently there was a Burger King commercial on at the time (gag) promoting a mushroom burger, and my dad would get kicks from coming up behind her and whispering in her ear, “mushroom burger!” Seems a little mean now (hah!) but when I was little I thought that story was hilarious. Congratulations on the baby. You’re going to make excellent parents! I love hearing about a healthy vegan pregnancy, because so many people call it unhealthy. Um, hello, I think chili cheese fries and artificial hormone-laden meat and ice cream are far worse than eating a multivitamin in a bowl. I can’t wait to have a baby one day. You’re an inspiration!

This is incredible! Congratulations to you and Eric AND Sketchie! Your story reminds me a lot of my sister who just moved back home to the states after living in London with her husband for a few years. They moved here, bought a new house (down the street!), started new jobs AND had a baby in a 3 month period. Crazy! But we’re so happy to have a new little one in the family!
Last night she asked if I would make a meal plan + make her meals for her since she’s so busy, but I don’t have any experience with pregnant/nursing mommy nutrition. This recipe sounds perfect though!
Congrats again.. so much love to all 4 of you :)

On that note, I’ve got a question for you! I’m starting to plan ahead a bit and want to make up some freezer meals that we can easily grab & eat after baby arrives. I know I’ll be way too tired (and busy with baby) to cook, and I want to avoid us having to turn to takeout more than we have to! I’ve already been scouring your cookbook and recipe archives here, but I figured I ask since you probably know what freezes/reheats best… What are some dishes you would recommend for making ahead to freeze/reheat? Any tips on what *doesn’t* freeze well?

Angela,

After a not-so-good day at school, I came home feeling pretty down in the dumps. I knew that I shouldn’t procrastinate from my homework and check my Pinterest, but against my better judgement, I did it anyway. And boy, am I glad that I did! After reading this post, I was so overjoyed that I actually started to tear up! Thank you so much for making my day infinitely times better.

I’ve been reading your blog for a few months now, and everything you do inspires me. I’m going to show this post to my mom tonight because she still doesn’t really “get” blogging. This is exactly what I need to explain to her that you blog to share your joy with the world, whether it’s through yummy food or happy moments in your life. I truly cannot wait to read about your journey ahead in the months to come. Good luck and congratulations!

P.S. My birthday is Sept. 21. If the timing works out right, I would be so honored to share a birthday with the Liddon baby! :)

Congratulations! So many beautiful and exciting adventures for you and your husband and kitty! I bought your book yesterday and have marked with stickies all the recipes I want to do, when I got about 1/4 into it, I realized I want to do them all! Thanks for a great book!

So happy for you! Blogs are so funny, aren’t they? I’ve never met you–in all likelihood, I never will–but I feel like I know you because of your wonderful blog, and so your happy news makes me happy. Pregnancy is wonderful and motherhood is even better. Congratulations.

P.S. I am definitely interested in your vegan pregnancy. I was lacto-ovo veggie for mine, but mostly just not very good at eating healthy. So I look forward to watching you with all of your nutritional and cooking knowledge. (Maybe Vegan & Pregnant is your next cookbook ;-) — it’s definitely an under-served market; trust me, I looked.)

I am looking forward to hearing about how things go for you with eating vegan while pregnant. So many people out there think its unhealthy to do so, therefore we need more great examples of how it can be done! So that one day when I have a kid I will have good examples to look to. :) Good luck with everything!

My husband pre-ordered your cookbook for me as a birthday gift and I love it! My 4 year old son loves it too. He LOVES looking at all the pictures, especially the dessert section. He turns 4 in two days on the 26th and asked me to bake him the chocolate cake! I’m baking the oil free zucchini muffins for his pre-school class that day. He also loves looking at the hummus and your perfect veggie burger. He just might grow up to be a Vegan chef himself! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to us blog readers. I love the baby bump pictures!! You are definitely Glowing!

But I am going to read it now because it looks really good! I am just so happy for you. And you look so incredibly happy and beautiful in the pictures. You almost make me cry!

I just want to take a moment to thank you as well. It is because of you that I am a vegan today, and if it hadn’t been for you and your amazing blog I would never have recovered from my eating disorder. You inspire me every single day. Honestly, words can’t describe how grateful and thankful I am to you. But just know that I am very very grateful to you.

Good vibes going to Sketchie.

Do you use a particular brand of chickpeas? Hummus Hut in NL would only use one brand and I am unable to find it, last few times I have used canned not so successful. I tried cooking my own but again, I did not think that they were great. Any hints would be great .

Oh how wonderful. Wait until you feel the baby’s movement, it is amazing. I will never forget it. And during my first trimesters I lived on tomatoes, grapefruit and dried seaweed… weird.

Congratulations. It seems through hard work and focus you have accomplished many important things, and it’s all begun to fit together. Now there is a nice pocket of time for you to enjoy a new stage in life.

I hope you share some of your experiences and tips with a vegan pregnancy. Not that it is so unusual (in fact I think it is ideal!) but as a vegan myself I already anticipate a bit of a struggle over diet with well-meaning loved ones, if I ever become pregnant. I am not personally acquainted with other vegan women, and your blog would be a really helpful source for any information you wish to share.

Thank you for all your delicious recipes – you are still my ‘go-to’ site for food – and best wishes to you and your husband!

Congratulations Angela! I’ve been following your blog for a while now.. I’m very happy for you both! Being pregnant was the most beautiful I’ve ever felt! Does that sound weird? Nothing will prepare you and Eric for when you first see your baby and his little face, it’s an unique moment, a rush of happiness like you’ve never felt will take over your feelings!! Awww, you’re gonna be a great mummy!! It’s not easy raising a vegan kid, I did get (and still do) rude comments on why a child supposedly needs animal protein to grow strong! I always answers that my child does have animal protein because even tough he is 16 months old I still breastfeed, and will do so until he wants. So maybe you can document a bit of your journey on the vegan pregnancy and raising a vegan kid so people will become more conscious that vegan kids are healthy and have everything they need to thrive. Even though we don’t know each other let me know if you have any doubts and want to talk to another veg mummy :) I have some great documentaries I can recommend for you and your hubby to see! All the best to the glowing family!!!

Hi, I’m not sure where the best place to ask about this is…
I made Our Favorite Veggie Burgers just now from the cookbook, and the mixture turned out to be really dry/crumbly. It’s delicious, so I am eating it by the spoonful, but I can’t make it int patties! I think maybe I should have made a ‘flax egg’ mixture but I don’t see that in the recipe instructions. Anyone else have this issue, or did I just mess up??
I have loved everything I’ve made so far from the book – Overnight Oats, Chia Power Doughnuts, Chickpea Salad. Yum! I think I’ll try the Chana Masala next. Thanks for the incredible book!!!

Reply

Sarah March 26, 2014 at 5:03 am

Ground flaxseed is listed under the ingredients but was left out of the directions part of the recipe. We made the burgers just the other day and mixed the 1 tblsp of flax to
3 tblsp of water. They held together nicely. Hope this helps!

Triathlonbabe March 25, 2014 at 3:53 pm

Angela,

First of all, I want to say thank you so much for the most amazing recipe book EVER! I love my book and I’ve started making all sorts of recipes, of course ones I’d already tried over the years of following your blog but it seems so extra special to make them straight from your book. I have several family members that are now following a vegan/vegetarian lifestyle, so I know what to get them as gifts…woohoo! Win-win, I say!

Second….C-O-NG-R-A-T-U-L-A-T-I-O-N-S! What fantastic news for you two! I am so happy for you!

Hey, I enjoy your blog and finding healthy recipes to try. While we are not vegan we are somewhat GF and dairy free due to allergies. Your blog is where I can find tons of goodies that meet our allergy limitations. I have a question about how to slice an avocado like you did in this post. Pardon my ignorance on how to do this. :>) Thanks.

And I too took about 4-5 pregnancy tests to convince my husband and myself because I’m also neurotic!

Such wonderful, blessed news for you two! I am delighted you will be growing in ever more ways.
Advice for morning sickness (even if it lasts all day and night) is ginger. In any form you can get it in you. Even if you just lick a little bit of it. It won’t help you to do lots at a time, just a little. My niece, who had it terribly for her pregnancy, said that the candied ginger I gave her let her eat for the first time, happily, in 4 months. I sent her Gin-Mins from the Ginger People, if I recall correctly.
Enjoy this new phase of your life and take time to rest and be with each other and your preparations as much as you want to. It will be worth it, as your life will change royally throughout this new journey.
Thank you for all you give to us.

Congratulations!!!!! … When I was pregnant with my daughter I couldn’t for the life of me eat tomatoes – not raw, not cooked, not strained … no matter how I prepared them, it just wasn’t happening. Being italian, tomatoes are a major player in 99.9% of my meals (I swear its tomatoes that course through my veins!) so this was very, very hard for me to accept … I was very happy to be able to eat them again after my daughter was born although I would soon learn that much to my dismay, my little girl detests tomatoes (even to this day and she’s almost 13) … hope your mushroom aversion is only temporary.

Congratulations! I am so excited to hear this news because I just found out I am pregnant too and was panicking about finding plenty of protein and vitamin rich foods during my pregnancy. Now I know I can just continue to follow you and see what great recipes are coming out of your baby-growing kitchen. Lead the way vegan mama.

I was just going to say the exact same thing, Lauren! I just found out two weeks ago and I am so happy to have Oh She Glows for guidance!

Angela, so happy for you guys! That is one lucky baby to have such kind, beautiful, loving parents (and big brother).

WOW congrats Ange!!!! I remember following you from almost the very beginning (ie. 4-5 years ago and when the number of comments was about 100 :P) and look how far you’ve come! From your TO DIE FOR Glo bars (which I noticed the recipe for is in your new cookbook – Ah-ma-zing <3), to the Oakville Farmer's Market, to moving so many times, releasing a cookbook and now having a baby!!! You are such an inspiration and I know that this is only begins a new and wonderful chapter in your life. I can only wish you and your family the very very best! :)

Sending you all my love and best wishes,

Natalie :)

Also, I had no idea that your cat has cancer:( Three years ago, our beautiful 3 year old Maine Coon was diagnosed with gastric lymphoma. It was the saddest time ever. He lived a few months later and then he made the decision for us to let him go to sleep peacefully. Since that time, we have two new cats who mean the world to us, but we will never forget Max.

So congratulations! and kudos for keeping it a secret to surprise Eric with. I was freaking out a bit too much to play it cool and keep it under wraps from my husband : )

Savour every minute of it because it goes by in the blink of an eye (although it might not feel like it when you’re weeks/days away from your EDD and can’t wait to meet the little bean)! I have been on/off again vegan/vegetarian/omnivore for years and am finding that becoming a Mum has really caused me to reconnect with wanting to live a vegan lifestyle, and am taking the steps to add MORE plant-based goodness into my home and life. I can’t wait to see how the blog evolves with the introduction of baby!

Hi Angela,
Congratulations on your wonderful news! I am an avid reader of your blog. I became vegetarian about a year ago and vegan in the last 6months. You have helped me open my eyes to many wonderful recipes. I was wondering if you are going to keep up your vegan lifestyle during the pregnancy. I find that very frustrating sometimes. My family and friends always have something to say about my food choices. I am constantly reading material and books about the health benefits of maintaining a vegan lifestyle in today’s world. I recommend and recite some of the astonishing things i have learned and yet no one ever believes me or is even interested in giving some of these books a read. I was wondering how your family and friends are accepting your decision to have a vegan pregnancy??

Congratulations! I dont even know you, LOL! but, I can tell from following your blog these past months that you will be a great mama :~) so happy for you and your hubby.

also, I love this salad dressing with cashews (it reminds me of the “vegan sour cream” recipe) deliciousness! I used dried dill-weed and added more than 1/4 cup of cashews for a bit thicker dressing. came out great.
I loved the hummus as well. I added some “mild chili tabasco sauce” that I have used in the past for regular hummus. The flavor may sound strange with the sun-dried tomato’s, but I think it tastes great.

I’m so happy for you and the little one (and all of your success)!! Now that you are in baby mode I have an important question for you! As huge influence in my life for over a year, I trust your advice. After breastfeeding for a year, what should I give her in place of milk – almond, rice milk…? As vegans (with a ton of allergies too) I want to make sure she is getting all of her nutrients. What would you recommend?

Hi, Angela, I am an avid fan and reader, and only you could get me to make chia pudding! Passing along a little “Grammar Nazi” suggestion — in this sentence:
“This creamy lemon dill dressing that I made after compliments” — you want “complements” with an “e” — unless the dressing is telling the salad it’s a pretty shade of green!

I know you’re a perfectionist and hope you appreciate the suggestion, meant in the most helpful and grammatically joyful way possible! xox Colleen

I absolutely LOVE your recipes, your website is my go-to place for vegan recipes :) I must say I really disliked the hummus recipe, the smoky paprika taste was a bit too much and it was just too “exotic” tasting for my liking. That being said, people who like Mediterranean food like olives and usually enjoy hummus will probably love it. I might have to make a basic hummus recipe and see if I like it but I’m not a huge fan of hummus as is, I love chickpeas in every other form though :)

This is one of the best salads I have ever had!! I didn’t add the chickpea tuna salad blob but kept everything else the same. Soooo good!!

Hi there!

I tried to make the creamy dill dressing and it turned out very runny. Should the water be added to the dressing or is it it listed as an ingredient because you soak the cashews in it?

Hi Kathy, Oh no! I’m sorry to hear the dressing didn’t work out. The water is just for soaking the cashews in; once they’ve soaked for 2-8 hours to soften them up, drain them before blending with the rest of the ingredients. I hope if you try the recipe again things work out better!!
