Go, Go, GLO!

Good afternoon!

It’s been non-stop again today. I still haven’t broken for lunch, but will be doing that after this post! I’m just too dedicated to you guys! haha ;)

Did lots of orders today…

Sweet Wheat Sugar Cookies

Chocolate Chip Walnut

Revive Glo Bars + Zen Glo Bars


Used up the last of the ‘old labels’ ;)


I also spent a lot of time on the phone with the government…I just recently had my GST tax number issued and am in the process of receiving my PST number. It is great, but it has just meant that I now have to do a ton of more paperwork! Part of the business I guess.


I had a fun new green monster today!


Tropical Bliss Green Monster


  • 3 cups steamed spinach
  • 1 cup soy milk
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 cubes ice
  • 1.5 tsp. lemon zest
  • 1 cup cantaloupe
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1 squirt Kyolic garlic extract
  • 1 T chia seeds
  • 1 T coconut oil

Print Recipe

This was one of my favourite green monsters! It is sooo tropical and lovely tasting! I strongly suggest making it! The coconut + cantaloupe + lemon/orange zest really go well together.


Anyone know the name of these flowers? They remind me of bumblebees.

My Zester broke last night! :( It was an expensive one from William Sonoma that we got with a wedding gift card too. Just goes to show that expensive stuff isn’t always better quality!

Handle less…


And the handle went on a measuring cup! What the heck! lol


I also continue to lose the battle with the tape gun :(

I can’t wait to upgrade to some professional bakery stuff down the road…lol.

I have been meaning to mention my Kirkland plastic wrap from Costco! I love Kirkland products!


This is the best money you will ever get from plastic wrap! We bought this 3.5 years ago from Costco and it is still going strong!!! 3.5 years!!!!!!!! I think my sister has had hers for 5! lol. I love Costco…I wish one would open in near us!

Well, I’m off to pack my orders and boot it to Canada Post again! I think the lady always laughs because I squeal into the post office at like two minutes before 4pm. ;) Like a bat outta hell at times…

Will be working out tonight…I can’t believe how quick my body bounced back from the 10 mile race! I am now a FIRM believer in stretching and proper nutrition!!!!!!!!



See you tonight for a SGBC giveaway!

Those are pansies :)


katherine July 21, 2009 at 3:25 pm

I’m so glad you’re feeling better already after your race! Your obviously doing something right since you’ve got the energy to run 10 milers, bake delicious treats and say ‘hi’ to all of us readers :) Keep up the great work!!


Shannon (The Daily Balance) July 21, 2009 at 3:27 pm

PANSIES! Love those flowers, they always remind me of Alice and Wonderland


Jodi July 21, 2009 at 3:29 pm

OMGoodness, those cookies look delish!
Have you tried different packing tape in your dispenser? Not all packing tape is created equal. There’s the good stuff and the thin/crinkles-easy kind. Maybe check at Canada post while your there.


Krista July 21, 2009 at 3:32 pm

Love the Kirkland shrink wrap, too. If you can believe it, our first box lasted 8 years! We always joked that when the plastic wrap was done, so was the marriage! Well, here we are at 11 years and on our second box of wrap! :)


katie July 21, 2009 at 3:40 pm

Angie, I love your blog! I have actually never commented, but I do read everyday. You always give me lots of interesting things to think about. And great meal ideas!
Anyway, I used to work at Williams-Sonoma back in the day and they take back just about anything. You should return your zester!
Good luck!


Linda July 21, 2009 at 3:51 pm

You goods look amazingly yummy!!

Love the pansies! They look like they are smiling!


britt July 21, 2009 at 3:56 pm

Those cookies are drool-worthy. Fantastic job!


Toni July 21, 2009 at 3:58 pm

Brynne July 21, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Those flowers are pansies! My sorority’s flower – love them!


paige July 21, 2009 at 4:15 pm

you need to notify me IMMEDIATELY when you start shipping to the U.S. those sugar wheat cookies look to DIE for. yum.


Lindsay @ A Taste of Sparkle July 21, 2009 at 4:30 pm

Mmm, those chocolate chip walnut cookies look yum. Can’t wait ’til you start shipping to the U.S. :)


Jess July 21, 2009 at 4:54 pm

Cookies and gonuts? Please make it a HUGE announcement when you can ship to the US….I’m drooling down here in FLA! Oh and I’m pretty sure the flowers are impatiens. PS. My parents date their roll of plastic cling when they buy a new one from Sam’s Club (like Costco). too funny!


Pam July 21, 2009 at 5:07 pm

Wiping off my keyboard now! Great looking products!



Kathy (Moving Beyond Perfection) July 21, 2009 at 5:11 pm

Amazing how much you managed to bake in a day!! Go take that lunch break of yours though- I’m sure you need both a mental and physical break! :)

Your GM also sounds heavenly!

Hi! I checked out your Glo Bakery Site. Those pics you posted on this post, look AHMAZING! Did you figure out shipping to the States yet? I live in Michigan and would be interested in ordering. Let me know!

Loving the sounds of that green smoothie. Awesome citrus flavors!!!

Jocelyn July 22, 2009 at 8:10 am

Anything Chocolate I am there!! I’m looking forward to definite shipments to New York!! : )

Hey Angela- I just wanted to add that you are very inspiring. Your blog was one of the first blogs I started reading and it prompted me to start one of my own! I just started getting into cooking and like you I would one day love to open up my own healthy dessert shop! Keep up the great work.

Health and happiness,
