Dempster’s Healthy Way Giveaway

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 10, 2009

Good morning!

Wow is the weather ever gloomy here today! It is grey, grey, grey. The nice thing last night was that it was still light during dinner time, which means there will be better ‘dinner pictures’ from here on out. The worst part about photography is the no natural light photography!

Eric has a Canon 40-D SLR and he is going to show me how to use it so I can start using it for the website to make my pictures even better! I’m excited :)

His camera:


He got this camera a couple years ago after reading tons and tons of reviews on cameras. It was supposed to be top of the line in its’ price range (~$1400). Why am I not using this everyday? Trust me, I’m as confused as you are! lol. Hopefully he will teach me this week!


Wedding Dress Plan


Some of you have asked me whether I plan on continuing with my wedding dress plan/healthy swaps once the wedding dress photo shoot is over to maintain my weight loss. My answer is: I don’t think I will need to. Since I have started working out again after 7 weeks of being off exercise, I believe that I will be burning enough calories so that I won’t have to continue to make many modifications. The biggest modification I have made is cutting out unnecessary snacks at night- that was the straw that broke the camel’s back! Now that I have gotten rid of this habit, I believe that along with exercise is all I will need to stay on top of. The healthy diet swaps were just a way to ‘kick start’ the wedding dress plan seeing as I only had 2 weeks. I am 4 days away!

At least I can zip the dress up now!



Oh She Glows Before and After


For those of you interested, Eric put together a before and after of the OSG design!


Click to enlarge!

I think we did a good job of maintaining the concept of Oh She Glows, but making it fresh and cleaner looking. Perfect for SPRING, right? :D





This morning’s green monster was a new mixture for me!

The contents:

  • 2 organic kale leaves
  • 1 handful baby organic spinach
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1 cup Almond Breeze in Unsweetened
  • 1/2 cup frozen pineapple
  • 1/2 cup frozen organic blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp flax

I can’t say I have ever had pineapple + blueberries mixed together! It was pretty good and I think I will make it again.

I feel energized and ready to have a productive Tuesday!

Oooh exciting about the camera and love the before and after. The new site looks great!


Marion September 1, 2009 at 11:15 am

Dempsters Ancient Grains is a staple in this house – lowest sodium content I can find in a good bread – also tried both flavors of squares and they are absolutely delicious.


Diana March 10, 2009 at 10:40 am

I love Dempsters BodyWise bread and would love to try the Healthy Way Apple Cinnamon Fresh Squares!

Can’t wait for pictures from the new camera! I’m sure they’ll be beautiful!



brandi March 10, 2009 at 10:41 am

I’m sad I’m not in Canada! :)

I love the new website!


suzanne March 10, 2009 at 10:52 am

I would definitely use the coupon to get the cranberry squares :) I always love to try new things!!


Ruth (Plentiful Plants) March 10, 2009 at 10:56 am

I have had the blueberry/pineapple combination before, and it is really good.

And I would love to try the Apple Cinnamon Fresh Squares too!

(And I love the get glowing button, I just notice it)


Jackie March 10, 2009 at 11:04 am

Hi, you’re luck with the weather. I live in Edmonton and it is -30, but feels like -42!! At the airpeort it is -52. Yikes. Love the new website, congrats.


leatitia March 10, 2009 at 11:12 am

for the giveaway (I’m Canadian, yeah!), I’d like to try the Apple cinnamon fresh squares the most! Wee! :)


TorontoGirloutWest March 10, 2009 at 11:16 am

Yaaaay for Canadian give-aways! ;)

I would love to try the multigrain bread. In fact I’ve been eyeing it at the grocery store for a couple of weeks now!


Bec March 10, 2009 at 11:25 am

I would like to try the healthy way multi grain sliced bread the most! It sounds delicious :)


Krista March 10, 2009 at 11:34 am

Hi, Angela!

I’ve tried the new fresh squares and we only eat Dempsters 100% whole grain bread at home. I think I would like to try the new pro cardio healthy way bread. It looks darn tasty!!!

Thanks for running the contest!


haya March 10, 2009 at 11:53 am

i think i’d like to try the multigrain bread! though the squares look good too, i tend to prefer to make that sort of stuff myself.


bobbi March 10, 2009 at 11:54 am

My hubby has that camera too, I need to use it more!


Danielle March 10, 2009 at 12:09 pm

I really want to try the granola bar type squares they have out in the Cranberry flavour. I’ve already tried apple cinnamon and they are DIVINE!


golnoush March 10, 2009 at 12:48 pm

Hi Angela!

I really like to try the new pro cardio healthy way bread.



Rose March 10, 2009 at 12:56 pm

Oh my goodness. Camera envy!


Leah March 10, 2009 at 1:04 pm

Isn’t WLW great? Only problem is that I still can’t drag and drop photos from my camera into the writer, so I have to upload them on to my computer FIRST and then go from there. It’s still faster, but there are still a couple of glitches to work out. I haven’t been able to download my theme either into it.

The Dempsters product i’d like to try is the cranberry squares! They sound so good!

I have that camera, only the version down from it! I love it!


Cathy March 10, 2009 at 1:07 pm

Love the new look for the blog, very fresh looking :)
Yay a Canadian contest – I would love to try the Healthy Way Apple Cinnamon Fresh Squares, they look yummy!


Marianne March 10, 2009 at 1:09 pm

Learning to use a digital SLR isn’t too hard, you should have it in no time. That’s the only camera I own right now, although mine isn’t as nice as that!

I would want to try the multigrain bread, because I love multigrain breads!


Sheri March 10, 2009 at 1:32 pm

I have not even tried the Dempster’s Healthy Way Breads yet! I have seen them so I would try anything really! :)


M March 10, 2009 at 1:44 pm

I haven’t tried the new Dempster’s products but I would try the apple cinnamon squares!


Cate March 10, 2009 at 2:22 pm

Love your blog. I’m really glad that your injury is healed.

Oh, I’d love to try the Wheat Bread and Cranberry Fresh Squares.


Sarah March 10, 2009 at 2:50 pm

I would try the Multigrain bread (cuz I love anything multigrain – it’s a party in your mouth!) or Cranberry squares, cuz I love finding snacks I can take to work that are high in fibre AND so yummy looking. And I love cranberries.


Nikki March 10, 2009 at 2:53 pm

Hi, I live in ontario as well…the weather is gloomy here as well in the North, freezing rain and snow to come! I would love to try their new bread, I need a more filling bread, the plain whole wheat is not cutting it!


Sharon March 10, 2009 at 5:25 pm

I’d have to say the Dempsters multi-grain bread…love the whole grains …oh and the new site! Thanks, Angela!


Marnie March 10, 2009 at 5:59 pm

I’m in Thunder Bay…supposed to be getting 40cm of snow tonight…hope it doesn’t make it your way!!!


Kristie March 10, 2009 at 6:43 pm

Looks like I’m about 20 minutes away from 7… too late yet? Haha I hope not!
I’ve had my eye on those Healthy Way Squares recently, especially the apple cinnamon… yum!

My favorite smoothie happens to contain blueberry and pineapple, it is the blue sunset from Pure Food and Wine. I love it because it is gorgeous,

Basically, it is
pineapple, banana, mango, nutmilk, agave, vanilla and sea salt blended, pour half into a glass, add blueberries to the remaining mixture and then pour the blue smoothie over the yellow smoothie for a sunset effect.


Amanda March 10, 2009 at 7:36 pm

AGHHH different time zone = me being late!! The Apple Squares look GRREAT
