Food Blog, What I Ate: Day 4

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on September 5, 2009

Rise and shine!


Let’s just say Sketchie is not a morning person! ;)

Here are the delicious eats I ate on Friday :)

My morning started off with a successful waffle mission!

Breakfast: 8:30am

1 huge whole wheat banana waffle with 2 T maple syrup + 2 T coconut oil (SO good!)


Vegan Whole Wheat Banana Waffles


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1.5 cups w/w flour
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1-1.5 t baking powder

Directions: Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Add wet to dry and stir until just incorporated.

I used coconut oil to grease the waffle pan and it worked quite well. :)

It was soooooo yummy!

Snack: 11am

For a mid-morning snack I had a green monster because no day is complete without one!


It was just a simple one as I was short on time (kale, hemp milk, ice, liquid garlic, wheatgrass, and a tiny brown banana). Green Perfecto.

Lunch was another late one (seems to be a theme this week!!!) since I was bogged down in my work and I had a run outside around 1pm. The good news is yesterday I got caught up on almost all of my paperwork! I probably have about 3 hours left to finish this weekend.

Lunch: 2:45pm

This is something I whipped up that I like to call …

Baked Burrito Pizzas



  • 1 pita
  • ‘Pizza’ Sauce (2 T soy yogurt and 1/2 cup tomato puree)
  • 1/2 cup black beans, cooked
  • 1/2 zucchini, shredded or sliced (I did both)
  • Parsley

Directions: Line a baking sheet with parchment or tin foil to catch drippings. Carefully divide pita in half. Mix sauce together and cover the pitas with sauce. Sprinkle with beans and zucchini. Bake for about 5 mins at 350. For the final few minutes broil on low-med, but watch it very carefully as the pita burns easily. Remove with a spatula from baking sheet and place onto a large plate. Fold into a burrito and enjoy!


This was really fun and quite tasty!


Dessert was another Power me up apple crisp. I used spelt flakes instead of Glo-nola since I am out of it (note to self- make more asap!!!). I microwaved the cereal and to my surprise it got really chewy and had a nice texture.


Late afternoon snack was a small cup of cereal with almond milk:


And I had some crackers and salsa that were not photographed.

Dinner: 7:30pm

Friday’s dinner was another first for me– I made pesto!

I mixed 3.5 T pesto + 1 T EVOO + 1/3 cup water.

Then I cooked some whole wheat pasta. Such a simple yet delicious dish with so much flavour! I had about 2 cups of the pesto pasta and 3/4 of a zucchini.


I also had some pan-seared Zucchini (just divine on its own!)


Sometimes the most simple meals are the best!


Dessert was one of my new obsessions!


I found these last week in Loblaws/Superstore in the organic freezer section. I was really craving candy, but since it has been so long since I have bought candy, I wanted to keep my good streak. When I found these coconut bars I knew I had to have them!!

It is made mostly from organic coconut, water, and evaporated cane juice. As you can see in the picture below, there is actual shredded coconut in the bar! OH MY, I almost freaked out when I tasted it. So delicious and really chewy from the coconut.

Best popsicle I have ever had!


I also had about 3 of these teas today…


Nighttime snack: 9pm

An Endure Glo Bar (My favourite flavour)


And that wraps up day 4!


Sketchie waves hello to his peeps. ;)


Enjoy your day!

We’re off for a special excursion :)


PS- I read online last night that many knee sleeves are made with neoprene and that neoprene is a fairly common allergy. Has anyone tried a cotton-elastic knee sleeve before?

OH i like the waffle recipe! Does it get too sweet when you add the banana?


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 5, 2009 at 9:12 am

No they weren’t sweet at all. Since there is no other sugar in it, it has a very bread like taste :) Eric had me add some non-dairy chocolate chips in his and he loved it!


nicole November 21, 2009 at 10:22 pm

Hey! Question!
I am trying to make the waffles. I was just wondering if the waffle you posted in the picture is the entire end result or just a portion? I’m not sure if i should use 1/2 c of whole wheat flour instead of 1.5 cup of whole wheat flour since I am making this recipe for only one person.


Angi September 5, 2009 at 9:06 am

OMG yum! I am going to take a cooler with me to Ottawa next week and find those coconut bars!


Joanna September 5, 2009 at 9:28 am

So many great ideas all wrapped up in one post. Thank you!


Katrina (gluten free gidget) September 5, 2009 at 9:31 am

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your little zucchini pizza idea. I’m totally going to have to go there. I just need to figure out what would be a good pita substitute. Maybe I’ll get creative and make my own pita. Hmmm….


Marina September 5, 2009 at 9:34 am

I wish I had a waffle maker. It always amazes me how beautiful Sketchie is!


Heather September 5, 2009 at 9:39 am

Sketchie is so cute! Love him! I wish I could find coconut bars like that here – all the ones at my grocery store have milk in them. I don’t understand why coconut/coconut milk or water is not enough.


Paige @ Running Around Normal September 5, 2009 at 9:56 am

I love when you include sketchie in your posts. The burrito pizza looks great!


Jodie September 5, 2009 at 10:04 am

Wow that pizza looks awesome.


Jenn Eats Nutritiously Now September 5, 2009 at 10:06 am

That last picture of Sketchie is just too funny!


Kate West September 5, 2009 at 10:12 am

Hi Angela!

You’re green monster looks deliciously disgusting. Or disgustingly delicious! I mean that in a really good way…Just how I like it! :)))))))

Loving your blog and tweets! Keep it up!

xoxo Kate West


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 5, 2009 at 2:13 pm

hahaha you shoudl have seen my hot elixir! I wont tell you what that looked like!


angieinatlanta September 5, 2009 at 10:27 am

Thanks for the waffle recipe! I’ll have to try it out because I absolutely adore waffles

And you’ve inspired me to try to make my own pesto now!


Sana September 5, 2009 at 10:52 am

I love pasta! The pesto is a lovely idea :) what is EVOO?


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 5, 2009 at 2:14 pm

Extra virgin olive oil….sorry im lazy!


kelly September 5, 2009 at 11:13 am

Love, love, love that last picture of Sketchie!!! Such a happy face.


Courtney September 5, 2009 at 11:27 am

Heee heeee on the pic of your kitty waving! Awesome!
Those pics of the “pizzas” are so pretty! I can tell you are really enjoying your new camera accessories!!!

Rachel September 5, 2009 at 11:30 am

Mmmm….the pizza looks great! I love black beans, so can’t wait to give that a try!


emily - eatventures September 5, 2009 at 11:53 am

Those popsicles look out of this world! Frozen coconut items are always my favorite.


[email protected] September 5, 2009 at 11:54 am

Mmmm your waffles, pizza, and pesto look sooo good! I love making homemade pesto.
Off to get breakfast, I think it will have to be waffles now :)


Deva (Voracious Vorilee) September 5, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Sketchie has so much personality! I need to take more pictures of my kitties. And utilize my waffle iron – I think I’m going to have to try out this recipe once I replenish my banana supply! :-)


Hannah September 5, 2009 at 12:58 pm

Hey Angela-I don’t have a waffle maker, so would this recipe work as pancakes? It looks so delish I really want to try it!


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 5, 2009 at 2:15 pm

I’m 99% sure this would work for pancakes! :)


Hannah September 5, 2009 at 7:57 pm

Hmmm thanks I’ll give it a try and let you know how it is!


jvegegirl September 5, 2009 at 1:19 pm

Hey Angela! How many waffles would you say this makes? I’ve got 4 big eaters to feed, so should I double or triple?


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 5, 2009 at 2:15 pm

I think it made 4 waffles :)


Menden @ Skinny Menny September 5, 2009 at 2:11 pm

I love the Sketchie pics! He’s such a handsome boy :)

Great idea with the zucchini pizza…looks delicious!


Kiersten September 5, 2009 at 2:19 pm

The waffles sound good, I’m going to have to get out my waffle maker soon and try them. We love breakfast food around here!


Liz September 5, 2009 at 2:58 pm

Another yummy looking waffle. I’ve noticed that the past few days on the food journal sections that you eat a lot of carbs (bread products to be more exact). Have you found over time that you feel better with more carbs vs. protein based foods in your diet? Just curious…I see so many types of eating styles on these blogs!


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2009 at 10:28 am

I have always been a huge carb eater (whole grain/non processed though!) and I never shy away from carbs.


Kristin (Kristins Nibbles) September 5, 2009 at 4:33 pm

WOW all of your eats look fabulous! I LOVE pesto and I need to make some myself! I also need to try those coconut bars… look like the perfect thing for a hot day!



The Big Blue Dog September 5, 2009 at 5:35 pm

Yum Yum Yum! I am sooo trying those pops!


Tay September 5, 2009 at 6:27 pm

Angela – do you find that your knee sleeves really help reduce knee pain? I’ve been sidelined for 5 months now with knee pain and have tried everything!! My PT said knee sleeves wouldn’t work for my condition, but I’m tempted to try them out.


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2009 at 10:27 am

Hi Tay, my knee sleeves totally took away my knee pain. They have been nothing short of incredible for me, but it really depends on the type of support you need. I had all over knee pain and it has been a miracle!


Jolene September 5, 2009 at 6:41 pm

Those bars look great! I LOVE coconut!


Katharina September 5, 2009 at 6:51 pm

I love putting coconut oil on my food! I use it as a butter for sweetbreads.. use it in my oats.. put it in lentils.. just about anything really. Those waffles sound incredible – I have been wanting to make waffles for the past week but I’m hoping to stumble upon a wafflemaker.

Do you have a good recipe for pizza dough?



Amanda September 5, 2009 at 7:13 pm

Your kitty is sooooo beautiful!! Love your blog:-) Aloha! Amanda


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2009 at 10:26 am



Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) September 5, 2009 at 7:46 pm

Your food, once again, looks sooooo pretty! The coconut popsicle, now we’re talkin!

Just catching up on blog reading and your last post bout listening to your body….for people who are in a true fitness groove, and not just those who are trying to skip their workout or come up with just about any excuse to skip a workout…anyway for people who generally workout and want to skip, I definitely say yes, listen to your body. If not you end up injured, overtired, and just dragging. However for me, listening to my own advice is hard…I always think I can muscle thru it and sometimes I really do just need to back off.


Ella September 5, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Ha ha, I love the captions you give to your cats pictures. Hilarious.


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2009 at 10:25 am

I was thinking of doing comment/thought bubbles. Would that make me a crazy cat lady?


Amari September 6, 2009 at 12:46 am

Those banana waffles look amazing! Pita pizzas are definetly one of my favorites — I have never thought to put zucchini on them, I will have to give that one a try!


Julia September 6, 2009 at 1:13 am

I’m definitely going to try this recipe as a pancake. I don’t have a wafflemaker, but it looked so good, that I just have to try it!
Sketchie makes me miss my parents kitties so much! Too cute, thanks for sharing the pics!


Cara September 6, 2009 at 4:44 am

I have to say, your cat is the cutest thing I have
ever seen!


AGS September 6, 2009 at 8:08 am

Ange — just a wanted to say “good job” with the food photography. If I were on day 4 of taking photos of my food, I’d just snap whatever came along and call it a day. . . but your stuff looks super.

A delayed comment on the running (when to push/pull back). I usually push myself. . . but every now and then I find that “throwing in the towel” results in more energy. I am on vacation w/out anything except my sneakers and the great outdoors, so I’ve been coming up with my own routines. . . amazingly, I was sore from my own made-up workouts of the last two days. So, I decided I’ll do a brisk walk and crunches and call it a day instead of the run I had planned. I *do* find that if I follow a running program, I generally keep fatigue/injury at bay. . .


Angela (Oh She Glows) September 6, 2009 at 10:25 am

Good for you for listening to your body!! I really think its pays off big time.
