I have also included the links to my Breakfast, lunch, and dinner categories if you want to see ALL of my meals that I have filed away!

5. I have some great hot topics coming up including:

  • Food blogs and the Internet- a passing fad or here to stay?
  • Why raw food isn’t always better
  • The Weight loss phase- don’t forget about us

I am really excited for all of this stuff to unfold! :)


We have a wonderful guest post today!!


This is Bandit our resident Raccoon!
He enjoys climbing up the bird feeder and stealing innocent bird’s food for his lunch!

Boy does Bandit know how to work a pole! He must be taking some pole dancing lessons lately.


Then, I saw some bunnies!


A mama and papa! :) Awww. If only I could see the babies!

Just your average day at the ZOO, ya know? lol.

For lunch, I was craving some grilled brussel sprouts!

Little known fact: I used to HATE brussel sprouts until last year! I used to eat 1 or 2 during family dinners at Eric’s house because his mom always makes them. Slowly over time I got used to them and now I LOVE them! Funny how that works!


So delicious. I grilled 1 cup in a bit of red wine vinegar.

I also made what I like to call a ‘Vegan Sloppy Jane’ :)



  • 1 cup wheatberries
  • 1 PC flatbread multigrain hamburger bun, toasted
  • 1/2 avocado
  • salsa
  • 1 Money’s Veggie burger

The Sloppy Jane was incredible!!!


I also had 2 ripe and juicy kiwis:


Some new white tea called Saphara from my Aunt!


It was the first white tea I have tasted that didn’t taste bitter! It was delicious!


And a Skinni-Mini Glo Bun for dessert- obviously!!!


For an afternoon snack I had a big bowl of spelt cereal and a granny smith apple!

Glo bun UPDATE:

  • Eric brought most of the glo buns to work today and they were RAVED about by coworkers!!! Eric is obsessed with them!!!!! Woot woot! :) And remember- this is coming from someone who says they HATE cinnamon and HATE cinnamon buns! LOL!!! Famous last words in this house…


  • I’m super busy today preparing for my Glo Bakery meeting tomorrow so I am happily taking an off day! Off days are a GOOD thing, remember? :)

Ok, I am back to work on Shop 4 A Cause. I am so so excited about this guys! It is going to be a truly amazing auction for charity. I wish it was tomorrow! But alas, we will wait until June 11th. Save the date!

Don’t forget- tomorrow at 8am EST a new Glo Bakery recipe will be featured on KERF! Be sure to head on over and leave a comment telling me what you think about it!

Oh god Angela, I thought that racoon in the first picture was a Koala bear. My first reaction was..
“Oh my god.. is that a koala bear?! ANGELA HAS A FREAKIN’ KOALA BEAR IN HER BACKYARD?!”
and then..

Needless to say I felt quite stupid when I realized it was just a racoon.

LOL!!! Err…you are right is IS a koala bear…wink wink. This damn raccoon always eats our garbage overnight :( ~A

I’m looking forward to those hot topics!


Chocolate Covered Katie May 27, 2009 at 6:56 pm

I love you too, Angela! You and all your green-ness ;)

I have that doughnut recipe bookarked, so you might just see it up on my blog soon– it looks so good!

Awesome, looking forward to it! ~A


Heather May 27, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Wow, that list sounds amazing! This will definitely be a fun event!

Haha, that Bandit is pretty brave. Gotta love living in the middle of nature! ;)

Enjoy your day off! You deserve it!


Amanda May 27, 2009 at 7:31 pm

haha the squirrels used to eat out of my family’s bird feeder too. we bought a dome thing to put on the pole. they still were jumping from trees to get to the food. at that point, we felt bad for them and gave up!

We have one with the dome too and they knocked it over! lol ~A

your sloppy janes look a LOT more appealing than what i was served for lunch today: regular sloppy joes. i opted for a turkey and cheese sandwich instead.


Christina May 27, 2009 at 7:47 pm

I have a new found love brussels sprouts too – they’re so good roasted, I’ll have to try grilled!

Looks like a good list of stuff for Shop for a Cause :)


Jen May 27, 2009 at 8:16 pm

I like Tetley’s white tea – quite tasty for the ‘cheap’ stuff :) LOVE all the animals in your yard! Does Sketchie freak out when he sees them through the windows? My cats would flip – they can barely contain themselves when there’s a bird or a squirrel in the tree outside our balcony. Silly animals!


Jennifer @ His N' Her Health May 27, 2009 at 8:59 pm

Can’t wait for more hot topics! Bandit has to learn how to work a pole to get some food! :)


brandi May 27, 2009 at 9:04 pm

so many exciting things happening! i can’t wait to see the baked good and for the shopping to begin! I see a few things on that list I would love to have.


Emily May 27, 2009 at 9:10 pm

congrats on all the exciting goings on! you’re a busy woman.

and your lunch looks great!

are raccoons supposed to be out during the day?!

haha that’s what Eric said!! I think they are supposed to be sleeping! Maybe he had a grumbly tummy ;) ~A


Hangry Pants May 27, 2009 at 9:53 pm

I love your little names for all the auction items!

The sloppy jane’s look delicious!!!!


Michelle Hisae May 27, 2009 at 9:56 pm

What a great turnout with the auction! And I LOVE brussel sprouts. one of my favorite veggies…never had them as a kid either. I think my mom assumed I wouldn’t like them as a kid. But I love them now!


Katherine May 27, 2009 at 10:02 pm

Looks like a great response to the Shop 4 a Cause event – I can’t wait for the 11th! I hope you will add the email or live chat sessions – I know I’d be interested!

Enjoy your off day and have a great night.


Jocelyn May 27, 2009 at 10:35 pm

The Weight loss phase- don’t forget about us

THANK YOU it ‘s like you read my mind…

I didn’t mention that I am psychic? :) I have good rates, email me! *wink wink*

I know that he is being a pest, but that racoon is sooooo cute!


Annie-Rose May 28, 2009 at 1:16 am

Those cinnamon buns look amazing! I will definitely have to try those and bring them into work.

I seriously have so many of your recipes bookmarked to try…just need to find time!


Juie May 28, 2009 at 1:22 am

This looks so great!!

check out my NEW blog!!! :]]


Leah @ Simply Fabulous May 28, 2009 at 6:00 am

Ah, I always get scared of those thins when we are camping! They freak me out!


Krista May 28, 2009 at 9:12 am

Cute wild life! There are a few bunnies roaming in my backyard lately, too!

Your lunch looks really good! It reminded me that I have some wheat berries I the cupboard that I should cook up. I love adding them to my oats and yogurt.


Holly May 28, 2009 at 9:34 am

You always start my day off positively and happily, so thank you! Also, I just checked out KERF and those raw brownie bites look out of this world!

Good luck at your meeting!


Sarah May 28, 2009 at 10:50 am

I used to hate brussels sprouts too, isn’t it amazing how things can change! I keep trying to tell my husband that but he’s not buying it, haha.


Ashley May 28, 2009 at 12:55 pm

About the white tea, try using slightly cooler water when steeping and only steep it for 30-60 seconds. If your water is too hot it will scald the leaves and that might be causing the bitterness. =)


Jess May 28, 2009 at 3:23 pm

That Bandit is something else! Cute, but a nuisance I’m sure for your household.

I’m new to your blog, but looking forward to “seeing” you more soon!
