Orange Ya Stuffed?

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 17, 2009



This morning I had a new fruit in my Green Monster. Can you guess what it was?

Clue: It’s juicy, it’s orange, and it’s large.


I don’t know why I hadn’t tried this in my GM’s before because this was really delicious!

It tasted really fresh with a hint of cantaloupe flavour.


 My Ingredients:

3-4 cups lightly steamed baby organic spinach

1 cup Almond Breeze

1 T flax

1 Organic peppermint tea bag (cut open and contents dumped into blender)

1 cup cantaloupe



I felt so great after drinking it!

For a mid-morning snack, I had a Larabar:


I made tons of progress on entering my receipts this morning! I am happy to say that all of them are now entered and accounted for. It feels so good to have that done.

I decided that I am going to book a half day at the end of each month to devote to receipt tracking. I tend to put things off if I don’t have it booked on my to-do list!


I got hungry for lunch around 1pm.

I decided to continue the orange theme make one of my favourite meals- Stuffed salmon and veggie peppers!



  • 1 can Gold Seal Flaxed flaked salmon
  • 1.25 cup frozen mixed veggies
  • 1 T Kraft Light Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • Chili Pepper

Directions: Cook frozen veggies in microwave and drain. Mix all ingredients together and stuff pepper. Cook for 15-17 mins in oven at 425F. When you take it out of the oven drizzle vinaigrette over top.

I fully intended on studying my Food Safety manual, but the sun was too bright and I forgot my shades.


After lunch, I was stuffed! I am still stuffed. It was a wonderful and filling lunch. :)



I couldn’t believe it but I am sore after my run outside yesterday! It is crazy how different running outside vs. indoors is! Luckily, it isn’t my injury spot that is sore, but it is my BUTT/Glutes and my QUADS. I am just going to take it easy today to allow my body to repair. I may do some gardening for my workout since it is nice and warm out today! As well as lots of stretching and more ab work.

Thanks to everyone who voted for Oh She Glows this morning– we are up to 10 votes!! Who hoo!

PS- Last night I updated my ‘Read’ page with more awesome blogs! I added a bunch of fun cake decorating websites.

I hope you are enjoying sunshine wherever you are!

good job with the receipts! it looks beautiful there – we’re having a very pretty day here, too :)

Hi Angela!

Did you use the whole can of salmon and veggie mixture in the pepper or did you set some aside? Looks really good!


Marissa April 17, 2009 at 2:26 pm

I love the colors!


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 17, 2009 at 2:28 pm

Hey Krista! I used the whole can and all the veggies!


Angela (Oh She Glows) April 17, 2009 at 2:32 pm

Opps I misread your Question- I used about half the mixture in the pepper and half outside on the plate! It depends on the size of the pepper I guess :)

Peppermint and cantaloupe – very interesting. That pepper looks awesome!

GORRRRRGEOUS pepper dish!!

Love the stuffed pepper idea-easy to make veg with some soy “meat” instead! Looks like great weather, cloudy here today.


Lesley April 17, 2009 at 3:51 pm

Mmmm… I love cantaloupe, it’s definitely one of my favorites!


Heather April 17, 2009 at 5:09 pm

That recipe looks great for lunch! I wonder if tuna would work as well? Just saved this one too :D !

What a great addition to the green smoothie! I haven’t experimented with the fruit yet… just sticking to bananas so far, but I’m definitely keeping it in mind. Have you ever tried peanut butter instead of flax?

I used grapefruit for the first time this morning in my smoothie, it was pretty good! I’m getting really creative based on all the raw food sites I’ve read…some good…some are not smoothies I would recommend. :)


Alison April 17, 2009 at 6:55 pm

That stuffed pepper looks incredible!

how on EARTH did you make that stuffed pepper look 100% perfect?!?! looks like something out of a cookbook!! p.s. i am officially hooked on green monsters.

Wow Angela – great job on the receipts tracking… I have a spreadsheet i created for my receipt tracking. Your stuffed pepper looks oh so yummy. I really think i would like the GM as well:)


Kari April 17, 2009 at 9:50 pm

Lol I’m sitting here eating cantalope (except I call it melon hehe) and last week was well and truly a pepper week for me. Must be something in the air :) I’ve never thought to stuff peppers with salmon or tuna though…thanks for the idea!


Kath April 18, 2009 at 10:28 pm

I was totally thinking you added an ORANGE to your smoothie!
