Glo Bakery Glo-Out!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on June 28, 2009

Oh man I am slow going this morning!

I don’t know why but lately my body doesn’t want to sleep longer than 7 hours- even though I am still quite tired when I wake up! This tends to happen to me in the summer. I guess because of the extra daylight my body needs less sleep! Does this happen to anyone else?

Last night Eric and I were up until about 12:30am researching bar packagers. We didn’t end up going to a movie because we missed the late show by the time dinner was wrapped up. We might go on Tuesday night when it is cheap night!

We also hung my Glo Bakery frame that my mom made me!!! :D It is hanging right outside the kitchen. I like to think of it as my bakery sign. ;)


And closer…


She wrote this poem herself and made the entire display herself too! Man that OSG MOM has some talent…I’m surprised she hasn’t been picked up for her own show yet! lol.


Thanks mom…I love it! :)

food Here is our mammoth grocery order from last night!

  • Cherries (on sale- first of the season!!)
  • Red peppers (2)
  • Organic baby Spinach
  • Fontaine Sante Vegetable Hummus (The best hummus I have ever had is their regular hummus, but they were sold out!)

I love looking at other people’s groceries, I always find it so fascinating. I guess I’m just nosy! I wish I lived in Canada, I’d love to try some of your products! If you ever end up shipping to the UK, be sure to let me know! Hehe.


Katrina (gluten free gidget) June 28, 2009 at 9:49 am

Hmmm… they don’t sell that kind of GF flour mix in the states. It will be interesting to hear a review!
I agree with Sam. It is like a peak into someone’s private world when you look at their groceries! LOVE IT!:-D


Jocelyn June 28, 2009 at 9:50 am

looks like we get alot of the same stuff seeing as how we live near each other lol… I have that agave..brown rice syrup, hummus, veg burgers (cept I think mine are spicy bean/tex mex), and spinach! :D I’v seen that flour, but I have never tryed it before…I just use whole wheat and buckwheat flour. My grocery store has a whole section dedicated towards gluten/wheat free though! I was tempted to get some gluten free icing sugar just to see how it tasted lol..

I love Eric’s little pile of eats lol..

I also love your glo bakery sign/poem that your mom made! She is talented and that is a perfect spot for it! :) Hope you get everything you want done today! Remember to take some *me time* ;)

Hey:). I just wanted to thank you for your blog. I’ve been reading for a while, but I recently had some time on my hands and went back through your journey to health story. your encouragement and realistic advice is a breath of fresh air, honestly. I’ve got fourty pounds to lose and the scale has been the source of much discouragement. Thank you for helping me to keep proper perspective:).


EatingRD June 28, 2009 at 10:32 am

I feel the same way lately, my body wakes up but I’m still feeling a bit tired like I need to sleep more. I really hate sleeping in because it seems like the day is already half gone. Sleeping in for me is like 7 am though :) I’m so excited because I bought some brown rice syrup and am going to attempt your on the glo bars, yay!


Kristen June 28, 2009 at 10:32 am

I definitely know what you mean about not being able to sleep long. I used to be an 8-hour girl and now I struggle to hit 7…of course, taking classes over the summer doesn’t exactly contribute to a full night’s rest ;) I think part of my problem might be working out too late. I’m going to try moving my workout earlier in the day rather than the evening and see if that works :)


Kim June 28, 2009 at 10:38 am

I have seen some of El Peto’s GF products at one of my health food store (in Ohio), but not that flour. I am interested to hear how it is. My store will order in things that are requested.

I’d love to see how you like those burgers, too! Harder to find GF veggie burgers that I like, too!



Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now June 28, 2009 at 10:40 am

You’ll have to tell us how that g-free flour is. My BIL has Celiac disease.


Leah @ Simply Fabulous June 28, 2009 at 10:54 am

The ‘Just Peanuts’ peanut butter is hands down my fav ever, and it’s a great price as well. I brought 2kg worth back to England at Easter (one crunchy, one smooth)!!


Susan June 28, 2009 at 11:24 am

I love Sol burgers!! They’re a little on the mushy side, but I think they beat out everything else nutritionally. The black bean kind is really good too. PC has the best all-natural peanut butter. I’d choose it over the fancier varieties any day :)


kim June 28, 2009 at 12:13 pm

I’m jealous! It seems like there are many more products available in regular Canadian grocery stores than there are here in the US! I’m lucky to live by a store with a huge natural food section with a lot of gluten free products, but this is the first time ever.


The Running Yogini June 28, 2009 at 12:17 pm

Wow! That is quite a grocery shopping trip!! Your bakery sign is too adorable! Your mom is such a sweetie!! Have a great day!!!


Shelby June 28, 2009 at 12:28 pm

YES! I get so mad that my body will only sleep 7 hours or less. I’ve tried blocking the sun, staying up later…nothing helps. Even when I wake up still tired, my body won’t let me sleep!

Oh how I wish I were Canadian!

Mmm, cherries! I need to buy some. They were too expensive at the store though =/

Ooo and thanks for reminding me to buy Brown Rice Syrup. I need to make some more Glo Bars.


april June 28, 2009 at 1:41 pm

I’ve been having the same sleeping problem but I never considered the extra daylight might be the cause! Interesting!


Jenn June 28, 2009 at 2:08 pm

I’m laughing at all the people who are gaga over Canadian groceries. Generally I thought all Canadians were gaga over the selections available only in the US!!

My groceries look so similar to yours Angela, I guess it’s the Loblaws/Zehr’s connection. I bought the same 3 for $5 blueberries on Thursday. And hey…did you get that Fontaine hummus at Loblaws or Costco? I’ve never seen it at our Zehr’s here – only at Costco. It really is the BEST hummus ever. They also make a couscous salad that is TO DIE FOR.


Helena June 28, 2009 at 2:40 pm

Hi Angela! I’ve seen those Sol burgers in the grocery store but am hesitant to buy any more veggie burgers after the last ones I had didn’t taste so great.. Can you do a little review on what you think about them when you have one? That would be great!


Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope June 28, 2009 at 2:59 pm

That’s such an adorable frame from your mom! So sweet!

LOVING all the grocery goods!!! I can’t wait to see them all used in the upcoming days. Thanks for taking the time to show and describe all of them… I just love getting a peak into your groceries! :)



Sarah June 28, 2009 at 4:28 pm

Hi Angela,

Gluten-free flours are great. I haven’t tried thew kind you have though – I usually amake my own blend. I can’t have gluten so only gluten-free for me :-) As an asnwer to Kim and her quest for yummy GF veggie burgers – Amy’s Kitchen Bistro Burgers are GF and FANTASTIC!. Even my husband prefers them over beef burgers

Thanks for the peak at your groceries – I love looking in other people’s grocery carts.



Holly June 28, 2009 at 9:28 pm

wowza grocery order – so jealous of the blueberry deal. serious score. also, i wish i was canadian so i could get me some of those bars :)

happy sunday!


Nae June 29, 2009 at 2:46 am

Oh my GOSH. I’m in Doha, Qatar right now and all I want are some veggie burgers. Seriously, intensely… Seeing the pics made my mouth salivate! Hope you enjoy them.
