Black, White, and Green

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on May 7, 2009

Everything about my eats today is green!

We have a huge surplus of organic kale in our house right now! Last night Eric walked in the door with 4 huge bunches of kale!!! Now we have 5 bunches to use up. lol. I really don’t know what the poor guy was thinking.

Last night playing with my food:


So I decided I am going to have to drink 2 green monsters each day to use it up. Look at how much I used in this morning’s GM. It barely fit!



  • 1/2 serving extra firm tofu
  • 3 huge organic kale leaves
  • 1 T Raw almond butter
  • 1.5 cups unsweetened almond breeze
  • 1 large frozen banana
  • ice

It made so much I had to put it in a bowl and eat it with a spoon like I saw on KERF the other day.

It was delicious!

I was a bad girl today and ate lunch at my desk! It only occurred to me just now that I used to eat my lunch at my desk while working every single day at my old job. I am thankful now that I can take actual lunch breaks if I want. Today though, I have been in such a good ‘groove’ that I couldn’t be bothered to stop.

My lunch was quick and easy:


Nature’s Path Spelt Cereal with 1 T dried blueberries, 3 T pecans, and Almond Breeze (Original).

An Echinacea Cold Season tea (my nose has been stuffy lately but now I think it is just allergies!) plus a green tea:IMG_0680

A whole wheat English Muffin with 1/2 avocado, walnuts, and 100% wheat bran for extra fibre:


Dessert was a granny smith apple!


I also have my last Larabar for a snack if I get hungry anytime soon while at my desk.


Wow I had no idea that the lace pant cover up thing a ma bob was going to be such a big hit on this morning’s post! :) How dare I post it without saying where I got it from! It is What I Wore afterall, right?

I have a white one and a black one and they are fabulous! They are great for low rise jeans when you don’t want any skin showing on your back. I love dressing up my Lulu’s with a bit of lace too!

I got them from an Ontario store called Jean Machine. I love the black one over jeans. I find it is quite slimming and pulls everything in together! They are great if your shirt is short.

I threw on a red top for these pictures because I love the red and black together:

What should we call this lace pant cover up thing a ma bob, anyways??

I would suggest looking for these at your local jean store! They have them in every colour of the rainbow at Jean Machine!

See you tonight for more fashion fun…

I am just in a fashion kinda mood today, what can I say! Tonight I will be talking about spring/summer trends.

Today’s question: What is your all time favourite accessory?

I would say one of my favourites is a flashy hand bag!! I have my eye on the Coach hand bag in the Shop 4 A Cause auction!!!! lol.

love all the green eats!

I LOVE shoes :) you can never go wrong!


Jen May 7, 2009 at 1:40 pm

I can’t believe I’ve never heard of these cover-up thing-a-ma-bobs! That’s a brilliant idea; I hate it when you bend over and your shirt rides on up. :(

My all-time favorite accessory is probably a pretty, delicate bracelet. I can never get enough of them! :)


Leah @ Simply Fabulous Now May 7, 2009 at 1:43 pm

I love handbags too.. love them..
and shoes..
and necklaces..
and earrings..


That lace thingy is great!


Jennifer May 7, 2009 at 1:44 pm

My favorite accessory is my bright hot pink belt with a black or white tee shirt, it makes a simple outfit a stylish flashy outfit


Maggie May 7, 2009 at 1:55 pm

I think that scarves are super classy and versatile :)


Bec May 7, 2009 at 1:58 pm

I love bikinis and accessories like bracelets and earrings in the summer time, I live on the water so dressing up for a party often involves a nice bikini and some sweet jewelery!


Janna May 7, 2009 at 1:59 pm

Hi Angela! Long time reader here, first time commenter.

Wow that’s a lot of kale!

My favorite accessory definitely has to be headbands! Plain ones, fancy ones, cute ones with bows… love them all.


Mara @ What's For Dinner? May 7, 2009 at 2:03 pm

I must get me some of those lace thingies!!


weight and meditate May 7, 2009 at 2:03 pm

Hmm, I’m not a huge accessories kinda girl, but I like cute purses and shoes – and when I say cute I usually mean “hippy””


Sarah (lovINmytummy) May 7, 2009 at 2:18 pm

How about a “muffin wrap”? Gotta keep those muffin tops (not that you have one) under wraps!


Run Sarah May 7, 2009 at 3:35 pm

I love bags & shoes, but don’t own a lot!


ppp May 7, 2009 at 3:38 pm

Bella Bands! that’s what i have heard them called, anyway. they are great, too, for when you are pregnant and need to cover your unbuttoned waistline! :)


Dee May 7, 2009 at 4:51 pm

Um… why does your tea look like it’s hovering? Weird effect, lol.

GM’s… scary. I aaaaalmost wish I had a working blender. Almost.

So… I’ve been doing the green monster thing for a while now but I also use spinach. I had tried kale a while back and preferred spinach. So yesterday, I’m at the store and I see kale and I’m thinkin’ I should buy some for my GM’s. Now I remember why I prefer spinach… my blender simply CANNOT handle kale leaves. I end up with a very chunky, leafy smoothie and it’s hard to get down. Does your blender do a good job with the kale? Any secrets to help mine along? Thanks!!


Angie May 7, 2009 at 4:54 pm

I also have a kale question!

I made a GM and am drinking it right now, actually. The kale is beyond bitter and I’m having a tough time getting it down. Any suggestions to avoid or offset that?



Chloe May 7, 2009 at 5:17 pm

I’ve been using baby spinach in my GMs, and have yet to graduate to kale, but plan to soon. Like Angie (above), I’m worried about the bitterness. Should I just suck it up (and learn to love it), or is there a better way to deal!

Also, you gave me the confidence to finally buy some lulu off ebay! I got a top, and want to bid on pants but am unsure of the sizing.



Angela (Oh She Glows) May 7, 2009 at 5:57 pm

Hey girls- love the accessory comments!

Regarding the GM’s and bitterness from kale- I strongly suggest using FRUIT to offset the bitterness. Once you achieve a certain amount of sweetness, the bitterness will be gone. It sounds like you aren’t adding enough banana?

Also, your taste buds will adjust over time! I no longer need any fruit in mine because I have just gotten used to it. I like to add some here and there for fun though :) Keep me posted!

Oh and aboutthe blender issue- I use a Kitchenaid and it does a great job on the liquify setting, BUT sometimes I have to let it blend a good 3 mins or so.


emily May 7, 2009 at 6:41 pm

thanks for sharing the site, I think those are really cute! I am majorly phobic about skin showing from shirts riding up.


Angie May 7, 2009 at 7:08 pm

Something I found while searching! Seems expensive; do you remember if yours were cheaper Angela?


Heather May 7, 2009 at 7:16 pm

Gotta love all the greens! Haha, can’t wait to hear all the green monster recipes you come up with by having two a day! :)

And that EM looks delicious! I’ve never tried mixing nuts and avocado before… I’ve have to give it try.


Emily May 7, 2009 at 8:10 pm

my favorite accessory is of course the awesome asscher cut diamond ring the husband got me before he was the husband! other than that, here in socal, it’s got to be sunglasses. i love aviators and classic ray ban styles. i’ve never seen those lace things before! what a good idea.


Jocelyn May 7, 2009 at 10:00 pm

hahah I live in Ontario..and Ohh..Jean Machine..I usually wouldn’t go in there because it is so dang expensive..but that thingy prolly wasn’t as expensive as the actual jeans they sell there :P Good idea too! I hate when skin shows back there. lol


Kelly May 8, 2009 at 1:39 pm

Hi Angela,
I just discovered your blog and I love it. You are such a sweetie and so inspirational.
I just wanted to pass on that I found a website that sells some of those cover-up things for your jeans
