X’s and G’los Adore HAITI!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on January 19, 2010

Presenting the new Valentine’s Day Glo Bar called Adore!


I let Eric pick the name because I just couldn’t decide among all of your wonderful suggestions! It was so cute he was grinning from ear to ear when I told him I picked his name. :D He picked it because ‘It has the same first letter as your name.’ lol.

The flavour: Roasted Vegan Marshmallow S’moore with homemade vegan graham crackers, dark chocolate, and cacao nibs!

Eric had just two words when he tasted this bar, ‘Best Seller’ ;)

You can now purchase Adore (limited quantities) as well as the new X’s and G’los Valentine’s Day Variety Packs online!

The Variety Packs are 10% off today only and I will be donating 10% of today’s sales from the variety pack to the Haiti Relief via The Humanitarian Coalition!! Help Haiti gets its’ GLO back and get some delicious V-day bars at the same time.

For all of the early risers- do you find that you get hungry for lunch really early?? I am eating lunch so early these days- around 11:30am! Getting up early makes me so hungry in the morning!

So what was my weekly food treat as per the Early Rising Challenge?


Ezekiel Bread!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lunch today was very colourful…


I like my Ezekiel bread toasted very crunchy. It takes longer to eat and feels more filling.

I piled on the veggies:

  • Cukes
  • Plum tomatoes
  • Homemade hummus
  • Organic Baby carrots
  • Organic baby spinach
  • Freshly ground black pepper




Then I had a romaine and cherry tomato side salad drizzled in homemade balsamic:

And Japanese Sencha green tea, to REV my engines for several more hours of baking today.


Dessert will be an Adore Glo Bar once these veggies digest a bit! ;) Mmmm.




Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

I definitely notice I’m hungry for lunch a lot earlier when I get up early. Makes sense, though, right?

That sandwich looks greeeeaaaaat.


Danielle (Coffee Run) January 19, 2010 at 3:21 pm

Ok just ordered my very first Glow Bars…Valentines special! LOVE the donation you are giving to Haiti, motivated me to order them right away. My kids came in the door as I was ordering them and the little one even “gets” the donation part. Can’t wait to try them!!!!

Christie January 19, 2010 at 6:44 pm

I really want to try the new V-day bars!

I get up at 5:25 am so I can be at work at 7. I eat breakfast pretty much first thing in the morning and I’m hungry for a “snack” probably around 8:45-9 and lunch about 11:30.


Mae @ OhhMay January 19, 2010 at 7:22 pm

I called it!! S’mores!! Ahh it sounds so good.
I love your contribution to Haiti. Thank you for being an inspiration!


Anon January 19, 2010 at 7:36 pm

Hi Angela! I read a lot but don’t usually comment. I think your website is really wonderful and you take a really balanced approach to life and to your blog. Love to see all of your new discussion topics, challenges, etc. :)

I just wanted to point out that I think that the correct spelling is ” s’mores” (only one “o”)! Don’t know if those labels are prototypes, or the real deal, or if you wanted it spelled that way… just thought i’d mention it!


Jolene January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

I am going to try and order mine now – hope there are some left!!!


Becca Dressler January 19, 2010 at 7:43 pm

Could you share your hummus recipe? I’ve tried and retried to make hummus taste the way you buy it in grocery stores, but it never tastes right…I’m wondering if it’s because I use canned garbonzo beans…maybe I should start out raw? Just curious if you enjoy the hummus you had on your sandwich, if so…please share :)

Thanks! And all you’re doing for Haiti as well!



sam(sgp) January 19, 2010 at 7:49 pm

oh angela! the new glo bar sounds so yum! so now i can only wait patiently for glo bakery to go international. =D Have a nice day ahead!


Sarah January 19, 2010 at 7:51 pm

WOW. That bar sounds sooo delicious!!! As does your lunch. I made your raw chocolate chip cookies last week and amazingly made them last for nearly 5 days! It was hard, lemme tell ya.

PS, do you keep your ezekial bread in the fridge?


[email protected] January 19, 2010 at 8:09 pm

That sandwich and that new bar look so good! yum! What a great flavor combination……


Jennifer January 19, 2010 at 8:32 pm

Angela your description of the new glow bars have got my mouth watering?

By any chance do you ship to Australia? I would love to buy some just to try your new creation.


Lex @ sweettoothlex January 19, 2010 at 8:37 pm

Halt! Do these Adore’s not have nuts?? I have a nut allergy and it didn’t look like these ones had any in them?


Lex @ sweettoothlex January 19, 2010 at 8:39 pm

Oh shoot – I just looked in more dept on the bakery site and there is peanut butter.
*sigh* Damn my nut allergy! LOL

Thanks anyway!


Maureen January 19, 2010 at 8:43 pm

Is it possible to get substitutions? You have a coffee bar in the special and I do not like coffee.


Katie O. @ Fit to Wed January 19, 2010 at 8:50 pm

um wow- that bar looks amazing. yum!!! Major kudos to you for stepping up and donating some of your profits. I love Eric’s rationalization for choosing the name, so cute :)


Jenny January 19, 2010 at 9:23 pm

How do you usually eat the Glo Bars? For Breakfast or dessert? I mean I love them all the time I just wonder if they are meant to be a post meal treat or a mid meal snack..v-day ones sound sooo good!


Ana January 19, 2010 at 10:45 pm

Um, congrats on being featured as the woman of the week on Women’s post!!!!!!!!! I just saw it and was like, hey I visit this blog EVERYDAY!


A January 19, 2010 at 10:48 pm

Angela, I am really, really struggling right now, and your blog just brightens my day and gives me hope. I need to know that i can beat this (eating disorder). i see a therapist, of course, but this has been going on for six YEARS. i feel so lost and hopeless sometimes, but when i read all about how overcoming your battles, i just want to leap for joy and the thought recovery IS possible.
i am trying so hard and just failing again and again. it is so hard to keep believing in myself — all i see is the failure. your story inspires me, and you emanate strength and beauty.
when the world is in such shambles, and there are over 100,000 people dying in a single catastrophe, i feel like a selfish jerk for worrying about my own dumb eating. these people are starving, unable to access clean water, and i am gorging until i almost throw up? and the guilt over that hypocrisy just perpetuates the disordered behavior.
i am ready to move on. i need to be okay so that i can help others — like you. thanks, angela. you might get sick of hearing it (no!) but your readers genuinely love and appreciate you and all the good you do for yourself, for your friends, for the blogworld, and for humanity.


Lauren January 19, 2010 at 10:57 pm

I get up at 5:45 on weekdays, and I’m always dying for lunch at 11:30. I always feel like people judge me when they see me munching away at that hour, and I just want to tell them that if they got their lazy butts up earlier, they’d be hungry too!


Christy January 19, 2010 at 10:59 pm

Man, your veggie sandwich looks incredible! I eat veggie+hummus sandwiches all the time and they never look that pretty :-P


A January 19, 2010 at 11:22 pm

(On a lighter note)
L, i get up at 5:00 and always shut myself in my office to eat my 11:00ish lunch. I agree, people think it’s so weird (and i get so defensive), and they’ll actually make rude comments!


Run Sarah January 19, 2010 at 11:29 pm

I get so hungry by 11/11:30 that sometimes I’ll eat my lunch then if I am not busy!


liane January 20, 2010 at 12:34 am

off to check out the bakery… mmmm… smores…

Ok. I think I’m doing something wrong with my tea. The sencha doesn’t taste very good, totally bitter. I re-read the tea post, and i’m not boiling it to the end, but I guess I’m still boiling it too much?! AGH!
Of course it took me like 3 months to finally get the hang of making coffee, so … I just might have a longer learning curve than most?!


Aoife January 20, 2010 at 7:36 am

Hey liane – try adding some cold water to the hot water, that might work :) Keep trying, you’ll make your perfect cup of tea soon!


liane January 20, 2010 at 4:50 pm

One would think boiling water perfectly would not be so difficult… thanks for the tip and i will be doing that this afternoon with my tea!


Bronwyn January 20, 2010 at 12:44 am

Those LOOK AMAZINGLY delicious!



pam January 20, 2010 at 1:29 am

I just got so excited to order that it didn’t phase me I clicked CAD instead of USD…woops. Did you watch the 2nd 2 hours of 24?? It gets really good! I think I am going to like Freddie…but I really do not like the head of CTU.


eatingRD January 20, 2010 at 2:31 am

those look tasty! I love the little bit of marshmallow peeking out saying ‘eat me!’ lol I always get hungry by 10:30am during the week when I have to get up at 5. Usually I have to grab a snack to hold me over till lunch at 12:30 :)


Trail January 20, 2010 at 2:31 am

The new bars sound wonderful, and it’s very cute that Eric got to pick the name. :)


Casey January 20, 2010 at 6:59 am

Looks fantastic Angela! I would love to hear more about how you handle the isolation of baking and blogging for a career…maybe you would consider writing a blog post about how you manage it, if that appeals to you?



Aoife January 20, 2010 at 7:40 am

The new bar looks amazing. I’ve never tried vegan marshmallows, must see if we can get them in Ireland :)
Love that Eric picked the name!


Katelyn January 20, 2010 at 10:35 am

Hey Angela! How do you prepare your Ezekiel?? Do you defrost it before you toast it? and do you use the oven or the countertop toaster?


Diana @ frontyardfoodie January 20, 2010 at 2:00 pm

Aww! What a cute story of naming!

I love homemade hummus. There’s absolutely nothing like it.
