$350 Whole Foods Giveaway Contest!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on September 17, 2009

This week I made a goal.

Eat. More. Veggies.

I came to the conclusion that my veggie consumption has been lacking a bit lately. Simply out of pure laziness, really.

I decided to fix that by buying more frozen veggies (quick and easy to prepare) and more fresh and easy-to-prepare veggies too.

A few examples of my delicious veggie eats this week:

I threw a bunch of stuff in the pot and it turned out yummy.

Kitchen Sink Veggie Lover Stew

Ingredients:

  • 1/4-1/3 cup leftover pesto (who knew this would be good in a stew???)
  • 3 cups frozen beans and baby carrots
  • 3/4 cup lentils (adds a ton of protein)
  • 1/3 cup Chickpeas
  • Tons of Curry + Paprika spices
  • Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 cup + crushed organic canned tomatoes
  • 2-3 T hemp milk (to make it creamier)
  • Probably other things I can’t recall ;)
  • Hummus and crackers for garnish

This was pretty much the perfect stew, especially given the chilly fall temperatures we have been having. I crushed some Mary’s Crackers over it and put a dollop of hummus on top. It was divine! Hummus makes soups and stews sooo creamy.

Another example of a veggielicious snack:

C + C Vinaigrette Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 English Cuke, peeled & chopped
  • 2 organic carrots, peeled & chopped
  • tons of fresh ground pepper
  • 2-3 T of Balsamic Vinaigrette

Another version of this Salad is to mix in 2 T of hummus along with the vinaigrette. It makes it super creamy. It is my favourite way to eat cukes. Try it!

This was last night’s dinner.

I love the lone Green Bean with a red hat saying hello. Ha!

Veggie Stir-fry & Sol Spicy Black Bean Burger

Ingredients/Method:

  • Cook a Veggie burger in a skillet (I used up a Sol Spicy Black Bean Burger- not my fav but ok in this salad)
  • Stir-fry Frozen veggies of your choice in a bit of olive oil
  • Mix in 3-4 T of tomato paste (hello lycopene!)
  • Add a glug or two of red wine Vinegar
  • Add spices of your choice
  • Crumble cooked veggie burger over stir-fry and serve

Don’t judge a book by its’ cover…mmm, kay?

I have some peppers and zucchini to use up today. Zucchini boats may be in store.

Of course, I have also been having my green monsters each morning.

My favourite mix this week is:

1 T chia seeds, 1 T peanut butter, pure Acai juice package, 2 black kale leaves (cooked), 4-5 dandelion pieces (cooked), 1 cup hemp milk, 1/2 a banana, and 3-4 cubes of ice.

Vegan Peanut Butter and Jam Glo Bites are on the move

Check out another fabulous Vegan PB + J Glo Bite spotting! This time they were made successfully with Whole Wheat Pastry Flour.

Well, I’m off to bake my little heart out for Fresh. I made attempt #2 of my new vegan biscotti recipe last night and it turned out better than I ever expected. I just need to make a couple tweaks on the cooking time in attempt #3 today and I should be able to perfect it. This is the flavour I whipped up:

Vegan Dulce De Leche Brownie Bomb Biscotti

Oh, and is there any fun way to name Biscotti for Glo Bakery? I was thinking Glo-scotti but I thought that might be taking it a bit too far. haha! Lame? Any other ideas??

Enjoy your Thursday! Don’t forget it is OFFICE SEASON PREMIERE NIGHT!!!!!!!!

I’ve never gotten to even go to Whole Foods, which is why I really want to win! There’s one in London, and we’re supposed to be hitting up the city for my birthday {the 30th} so I’d love to scope out the place!!

BTW I really do love Baby Enchanted. I’ve sent my cousin over there since she just had a little one. Such amazing merchandise.

I love the prepared goods that Whole Foods has. When I was in Toronto a few months ago for my birthday my boyfriend and I went to whole foods to grab dinner. We got an AMAZING jalapeno corn bread that I could have eaten all in one shot.
