16th Time Is A Charm

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on April 18, 2010


Friday’s late night Glo Bar test was a success!

If it gets the go ahead from testers this week, I will be ordering the new packaging, ingredients, and bowls/utensils/containers. There is still lots to do!!

More fun yesterday…


I made the Nut butter parsnip fries using carrots! Finger licking good.

I still preferred the parsnips though. I can’t wait to try it with sweet potato! Hopefully I don’t burn them. ;) Not that I would ever do such a thing…

Eric gave two thumbs up to both the parsnip and carrot versions, although he said the carrot version needed ketchup while the parsnip one didn’t.

I had it with Mary’s Crackers and tomato paste for lunch.


and one of my favourite juices!


Dinner was a messy Amy’s veggie burger…on Ezekiel toast.


With lots of hummus, just the way I like it.


and a gourmet Tupperware salad. ;)


I made the call not to run the race this morning as my groin is still sore after this week’s fall. I am so bummed because I was so excited to be running in my old university town. :( I did a test run last night because I felt fine when I was walking, but once I started to run I did feel the soreness creep back. Looks like it will be a little while longer. I had a chat with my Sports Doctor yesterday and she said that groin muscles tend to take longer than normal to feel back to normal. My girlfriends ended up not running either for various reasons! It just wasn’t meant to be I guess…life goes on!

Breakfast this morning was Vegan Overnight Oats



This morning’s mix had: 1/3 cup oats, 1 pear (chopped), 1/2 banana (mashed), 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, pinch of sea salt, 1 tablespoon chia seeds, 3/4 cup almond milk. For the topping, I sprinkled Sucanat over top for some crunchy, natural sweetness.



I had a fresh juice composed of: 1 beet, 1 carrot, 1/2 apple, 1/2 lemon, 1 cuke.


Last night, Eric and I got sucked into the TV show called THE MARRIAGE REF!!! Such mindless entertainment! The couple with the Solitaire and Fishing argument = hilarious. I will definitely be watching more episodes.

Spill the beans, what TV shows are you currently hooked on?

Quick question for you…i made your hummus recipe last sunday, but I haven’t used it all up yet. how long do you let it sit before throwing it out? I’m always weary of leftovers!


Angela (ohsheglows) April 18, 2010 at 12:33 pm

I would say it is good for a week althogh I am not positive…if there is lemon in it, that usually keeps it a bit longer!


Leena April 18, 2010 at 11:00 am

for some reason, i just haven’t been able to get into Glee, but my three favorite shows right now are American Idol, Mercy, and the Forgotten!

Actually, although i’m not “hooked,” the show “Minute to Win it” is kind of entertaining in a really stupid way!

Every time I see those nut butter coated fries I literally start salivating. This is going to be a problem…

We need to start a support group! haha


Allison @ Food For Healing April 18, 2010 at 3:40 pm

i basically only watch seinfeld on tv. I was watching The Biggest Loser, but kind of fell off that wagon.
However I LOVEEE the big bang theory, but always seem to miss it!


Kate April 18, 2010 at 3:48 pm

My boyfriend and I are absolutely in love with “True Blood” and “Rescue Me”!! And “South Park”. :)

Sad to say…I arrange my schedule around Glee!

Went to our new HyVee today and was delighted to find Chia seeds. Hadn’t heard of them until I started reading your blog last week! Looking forward to trying them.

I am hooked on “reality” shows like Survivor, American Idol, America’s Next Top Model …

I also love Glee!!


Jaimers April 18, 2010 at 11:35 pm

I always wondered if those Amy’s burgers were any good. I’m glad to know they are pretty yummy.

You know when you get sick and then you swear off the last food you ate because you, well, got sick from it? For me, that was parsnips, otherwise I would just love to join you in your newly-found love for parsnips. The fries sound awesome, but I can’t bring myself to eat parsnips again!! booooo.
