Hi, I’m Angela. Welcome to Oh She Glows – an award-winning recipe blog featuring over 500 healthy recipes! For the past 5 years, I’ve shared mouth-watering, energizing recipes that I eat on a daily basis as well as oodles of drool-worthy photographs. My goal is to inspire others to embrace more plant-based foods in their diet without feeling deprived. And yes, my recipes are great for meat-eaters and picky kids too. Most of my recipes are gluten-free and many are allergy-friendly.

My first cookbook, The Oh She Glows Cookbook (released March 4, 2014) is a New York Times Bestseller. It features over 100 plant-based vegan recipes (including 85 gluten-free recipes) using real, whole food ingredients. The book also contains over 100 full-page, full-colour photographs shot by yours truly. For more info, see here.

My Story:

On October 31st 2008, I started Oh She Glows to write about my recovery from an eating disorder, my journey to health, and the amazing transformation that food can make in our lives. Within the first few months of blogging my readership started to grow and before long I connected with women and men all over the world. Today, almost 5 years later, Oh She Glows receives millions of hits each month. I never expected that my blog would turn into a passion and eventually my full-time career, but I’m extremely grateful that I took a chance and hit publish on my first post.

As my relationship with food improved, I focused on creating healthy plant-based recipes that would win over my husband’s approval. At the time, Eric was a devout fast-food lover and drank pop like water. Coming up with healthy dishes that he enjoyed was a difficult task, but I was up for the challenge! I didn’t come from a food or photography background (nope, I barely knew how to cook a potato), so everything you see on this blog is a result of hard work and self-taught skill. I taught myself how to create recipes and photograph my creations. It’s been an adventure!

Fast forward to 2012-2013 and I’m now working on my first cookbook which is due out early 2014.

Let me rewind a bit and tell you about what was going on in my life the year I started my blog.

2008

We fell in love with this crazy kitten. We call him Sketchie. He’s a bit older now, but just as crazy…

080831 1310   About

In 2008, I married my high-school sweetheart, Eric, and graduated with a Master’s degree in Social Psychology. Life was wonderful, yet not so wonderful at the same time. I was in recovery for an eating disorder, something I had been struggling with since I was 11-12 years old. Despite the great things going on in my life, I couldn’t enjoy them fully without putting my eating disorder behind me. It was like a storm cloud hovering over me for years.

During the last semester of my Master’s degree, I started working full-time as a researcher. I did a lot of hands on, practical research and even had the opportunity to write a book chapter, but ultimately I found that research did not fulfill me like I thought it would. I just felt so empty inside and deep down I knew that it wasn’t a great fit for me. I longed to express my creative side! I wanted to write, but not in the form of scientific articles. Thankfully, Oh She Glows was a great outlet and really let my creativity flourish. For the first year of blogging, I wrote 3 posts per day (yes, you read that right) and I absolutely fell head over heels in love with my new hobby. Up until this point in my life, I never had a hobby that I felt so passionate about and it felt so rewarding to enjoy something so much. Connecting with others all over the world motivated me to keep going during a time when I was very unhappy with my career. Whenever I was frustrated with career unhappiness and worried about my future, I would brainstorm ideas for blog posts. Boredom was no longer in my vocabulary.

IMG 2976 thumb   About

2009/10

In 2009, I took the leap and left my research career. Yikes! This was a difficult and anxiety-provoking decision as someone who doesn’t like change or letting people down. I had no plan, but a supportive husband, tons of drive, and a hobby I loved. After a couple months of looking for other research jobs, I decided to start up my own business, Glo Bakery – a healthy bakery featuring my popular Glo Bars. Walking away from a career that I went to school for 7 years was not an easy thing to do, but it turned out to be the best career decision I could’ve made. Finally, I felt passionate and in control of my own happiness! I was determined and filled with passion to make this new career work.

I ran the bakery on my own (with the help of my husband when he had time) for a couple years and it was a huge success. Each week, I hand-made over 500 Glo Bars and shipped them to customers (many were blog readers!) all over North America. It was physically exhausting running both the bakery and the blog, but I knew that I was on the right path to career happiness. No matter how much work it took, I was willing to do it.

2011/2012/2013

After a couple years of running the bakery and blogging full-time, I closed the bakery to pursue my cookbook dreams after being approached by an editor from a major publishing house. The bakery was an experience I will never forget and I learned so much. Right now, my focus is on writing a fantastic cookbook and blogging, but who knows, some day in the future I might open up the bakery again!

My husband Eric and I are expecting our first baby late September 2014! You can read my announcement in this post. Also, check out my Baby section, where I post weekly pregnancy updates + pictures and talk about pregnancy vitamins and nutrition.

Learning to love food again

With hard work, counseling, and persistence, I was able to overcome my struggles with disordered eating. I no longer count calories, weigh myself obsessively, binge eat, or workout compulsively. Balanced is how I feel in my life now. It’s a great feeling after so many years of struggle.

I shifted my diet to plant-based in mid-2009 after learning more about nutrition, animal welfare, and the environmental impacts of factory farming. My goal is to show you healthy, unprocessed, and animal-product free recipes that I create to keep myself and my family inspired about tasty good-for-you food. My husband dropped 20 pounds effortlessly and got rid of his high cholesterol – all without dieting or medication. I share my recipes on this site to hopefully inspire readers to try out my recipes. The best part about my recipes is that anyone can enjoy them from vegans to carnivores alike. Don’t believe me? Just read some of the glowing reviews in the comments. I’ve received hundreds of emails over the years from blog readers crediting Oh She Glows for inspiring some major changes like losing weight, shifting to a vegetarian or vegan diet, reducing meat consumption, overcoming eating disorders, and changing careers. I am so grateful to be a able to share my passion for food and wellness on this blog and most importantly, to hear YOUR stories of triumph! Whether you are looking to incorporate a few vegan meals into your week or want to take the plunge with a vegan diet, I hope you’ll find that inspiration here.

I’ve been following your blog for a while now, my cousin told me about it. However, today is the first time I actually read your story. I can really relate to what you went through with food, and probably still do to some extent. I have battled an eating disorder since I was about 14. I have been vegetarian for a number of years but only in the last few months finally made the switch to being vegan and it has given me a new love for food as I am always looking for ways to veganize my old favourite foods. I read this book a couple of years ago Women Food and God and when you talked about how you wanted to love food again I was reminded of that book. “Eat with joy and gusto”. Learning to live food again has taught me to learn to love life again, food does not have to be the enemy.

Hi Angela!

I recently stumbled upon your blog via Pinterest (I’m addicted to that thing :P) and am so happy I found it! I am taking baby steps to recover from disordered eating and the anxiety and depression that came along with it. I found that what I went through is very similar to what you went through. After reading all your posts about how far you have come and how apparent your happiness is now, it really inspires me with hope! I do not personally know anyone that has gone through something like this so I have had a hard time finding people who I can relate to. You blog has certainly changed that! Reading your posts makes me feel so much better knowing that I am not the only person who has gone through this. Reading all the comments too proves to me there are a number of people who have faced things such as disordered eating. I finally found a place where I can find support , encouragement, and people I can relate to. I extremely appreciate your positive, insightful, and nurturing posts. I feel like this a blog that I can go to when I need a pick-me-up or a reminder or encouragement; I have definitely already done this :) I am grateful that you’re focused on being healthy inside out! I love, love, love your recipes and the fact that I can feel comfort that what I’m eating is good for my body and health regardless of those drive-you-crazy-numbers like calorie count. I also find that I am slowly, but surely beginning to enjoy food again for how it’s fueling my body and contributing to my health instead of obsessing over what the effect food might have on my weight, etc. Even more so I appreciate that you discuss feeling good about yourself from anything from image to self-esteem; it is encouraging to read this from someone who has gone through something similar that you have. Reading these kinds of posts and well as the comments is only benefiting my recovery; I love the Oh She Glows community! Anyways, I could go on and on about how grateful I am for you and your blog but I just wanted to quickly say thank you!! I will continue to check your blog daily (maybe even several times a day!) and look forward to more posts of yummy food and words of wisdom! :)

Hi! I stumbled across your blog when I was searching The Toronto Women’s half marathon. I wanted to find out if it was possible to run a personal best on the course (I had heard it is very crowded on the path) but I see thanks to your race recap and time that it is possible to run it in a fast time. I ran Scotia in 2:00:23. I was thrilled to read you’re vegan. I am a strict vegetarian and am working towards unprocessed! Thanks for writing the race recap and feel free to give me any tips!

Hey Angela! I love so many things about your site! I haven’t been on since last year, and I like the change of the look. Very pretty.

Anyhow, I really would like for you to watch this video when you get the chance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lRPmqNPHALs

It is a 45 minute silent film created with love by Patrick Rouxel about palm oil. I realize you probably don’t eat a lot of processed foods, but in some of your older recipes, you use Earth Balance. I am strongly against the use of this because of the palm oil, AND it is unhealthy. Rather, I bake/cook with raw, virgin cold pressed coconut oil in baking, and the cookies, and everything else comes out stupendous.

Here is an article http://veganjoy.blogspot.com/2010/09/whats-on-your-cupcake-veganism-and.html about palm oil as well. I encourage ALL your followers/readers to PLEASE GIVE UP products with palm oil. The stuff is nothing but environmental destruction, and a tasty cupcake/brownie/cookie/pie can be made with the oil of a fruit that comes from a tree, rather than the plant that uses slash and burn methods, and destroys ecosystems and human livelihoods as well. I don’t know about you, but I cannot justify 5-10 minutes of taste bud explosion when it is creating such horrors for others.

Thank you, and be well!

Hi Angela,this is my first time on your sight and I have really enjoyed what I have seen. My daughter ( who is 9 ) has recently decided to be a vegetarian. For her it is because of her love for animals. I must say I have constipated going vegetarian myself. I am trying to research a ton to find out what kind of foods to feed her and all awhile to make sure she is getting enough protein. She is a fairly good eater, but she definitely needs to broaden her choice of foods. I was hoping that you could give me some insight. What are some good option for protein and iron? Do you have some ideas to help keep it fun and kid friendly?
Thank you , Tina

As for protein suggestions, check out this list (scroll down a bit): http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/protein.htm and for iron-rich foods, check out this one: http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/iron.htm I also try to consume iron rich foods with a bit of vitamin C to help with absorption, but there is a lot more reading up on it you can do.

Angela,

I am so glad that I was able to stumble across your blog today! Reading your story not only was I inspired but I was filled with hope for the future :) My own story is so parallel to yours and to hear how well you are doing gives me so much strength! I too have both a passion for writing and nutrition, I have two bachelor’s one in Journalism and the other in nutrition. I am currently getting my Master’s in social work to become a therapist. I specifically want to work others suffering from an eating disorder just as I have. I have suffered with an eating disorder all my life, compulsive over eating/obesity as a child and anorexia as an adult. Over the past year I have been trying to transition my diet as the damage my disorder had caused my body had left me with adrenal fatigue, thyroid issues and a leaky gut. I became extremely sensitive to certain foods and have already completely cut out dairy and gluten and am hoping to continue to work towards developing a more vegan/plant based diet. While these restrictions have been hard I no longer have the physical symptoms I used to and my love for food & cooking and life itself has reemerged. I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story…it truly touched my heart! If you have any advice on how to incorporate this type of lifestyle and make sure i’m not depriving my body would be great! Can’t wait until you get a book out, it will definitely be one I will pick up :)

Angela,

Im so glad i found your blog. For the past few years i have been struggling with an eating disorder, i am completely obsessed with diet, exercises, and my body. Even with my obsession with those three im still over weight. By looking at me you would never know i have an eating disorder. I long to be happy and healthy and to no longer carry my burden of self hatred.
When i read your blog i felt as if i was looking into the future. You went to school and studied exactly what i have been debating on studying. You own a healthy bakery and one day i dream of owning a coffee shop that is fair trade and organic with vegan options.
For the past year i have been transforming and trying to change my diet to fully vegan, im about 90% there. I want so badly to be 100% there but every time i get close my eating disorder comes and kicks me in the ass with a late night binge on ice cream. I find your change and your blog so inspirational and im even more determined to beat this eating disorder and to say goodbye to it forever. I want to be healthy and happy, I want to move on with my life. Thank you

I did a little experimenting yesterday and I would like to share this:
Adapted from VitaMix Dutch Apple Baby recipe
serves 4 or 8 (depending on how it is sliced)
Apple Filling:
2 medium to large apples ( I used Fuji and Red Delicious), cored, peeled, and sliced into thin rings
1/8 c. blueberries
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 c. sugar
1 T. coconut oil

Coat the apples in the cinnamon and sugar in a large bowl. Saute the apples over medium-high heat in a skillet in the oil until soft, add in the blueberries the last five minutes of cooking.

For the cake:
1/2 c. oat flour
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/4 t. cloves
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. sea salt
1/2 t. vanilla extract
1/2 – 1 c. almond milk (you want the batter to be a bit runny)
1/2 T. yogurt
1 T. flax meal
1 T. chia seed
6 T. water

Mix the flax and chia with 6 T. water in a bowl and let sit for 5 minutes.
In the bowl used to coat the apple, mix together the oat flour, spices, and salt. Add the vanilla extract, yogurt, and almond milk. Stir to combine. Mix in the chia/flax mixture last.

Pour the apple/berry mixture into a greased pie pan (or cast iron skillet can work). Even out the filling. Pour the batter over the fruit last. Make sure the batter is evenly coating the fruit and level on all sides of the pan.

In a pre-heated oven at 450F, bake the apple baby for 20 minutes.

Serve with sliced fruit, agave or honey and a dollop of yogurt. OR sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Makes a great 450 kcal (2 slices) breakfast!

Hi Angela,
After finding your recipes online and printed most of them out I have no color cartridges left. A happy problem! =)
I am reenergized to go back to my vegan diet which I stopped two years ago because my hair started falling out (which turns out which turns out had nothing to my diet at all). I also want to return to running (it’s really bunny hopping for me) again and think your idea of signing up for 5 and 10K races is a great motivation not to mention blogging about it to your readers for additional accountability help.
Thanks for taking the risk and following your heart.

Hi Angela,

I’ll be checking out your blog often. I’m not a big fan of meat and I try to avoid it as much as I can, but isn’t being a vegan expensive? That’s the main reason I haven’t switched over yet.

Reply

Hey Rich, It can be expensive if you purchase a lot of the “superfoods” that are popular these days (think expensive protein powders, goji berries, maca, spirulina, fake meats, high end vegan packaged products, etc), but a basic vegan diet mainly consisting of grains, dried beans, veggies, lentils, herbs/spices etc is actually quite cost efficient and super delicious. I buy most of my foods in bulk and that helps a ton. I rarely buy packaged prepared foods or imitation products. I store all of my dried beans and grains in mason jars and buy in bulk. Obviously, I can’t say whether it’s perfect for you, but I do encourage you to try it out!

I am so glad I stumbled across this! I am going to do a mostly raw vegetarian diet (kinda scared actually!) I am nervous that I wont be able to do it or have the patience with it! I know my body will feel better being vegetarian again but I am nervous that I wont do well. I loved hearing your story about getting out of an eating disorder. I was a vegetarian in high school but only because I wanted to control the only aspect of my life that I could. Somehow controlling what I ate and the idea of kindness through not eating animals helped me cope with my life during that time. I have even binged and purged at times… craziness I know. But this time I am going to do it right with a healthy mind for a healthy and wealthy body! :) I will be sure to read more in the future! Blessings to you and your fam!

Hi Angela,
I came across your blog on pinterest believe it or not and I have been looking around on your site. You have some really amazing and motivating things on here. I am also a girl that is on the road for recovery from an eating disorder and my heart opened up when I was reading what you had wrote. I just want to let you know that and to not quit your blog because from now on I will be viewing it periodically because I find it that inspiring.
Thank you,
Taylor

Hi Angela!
You are awesome! I love your blog! I am currently in college studying nutrition and I absolutely LOVE to bake and cook, but i feel so restricted by recipes. I was wondering how you learned to cook/bake and create your own recipes? How do you know what to do and how much of everything to add??

Hey Abby, Thank you for your kind words! Great question. I’m self-taught, which has basically involved reading A LOT of cooking and baking stuff online and lots of trial and error. Now that Im thinking about this, I bet there is a good book out there for learning the basics. Might be worth checking out!
