Getting My Glow On

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 26, 2011

I’ve been doing a lot of this


Sadly, not any of this


Amazingly, I even miss this


But I have been giggling at this


That would be Bryan Kest Power Yoga in all his 80’s cut off jeans and Long John glory! As much as I make fun of the cheese factor in this video, Bryan has a wonderful, laid-back, do-only-what-you-can approach to yoga that I adore. He removes the intimidation factor.

I’m also doing a lot of these amazing back poses from Yoga Journal too.

I made an appointment next Wednesday with my doctor for my sore tailbone. It’s feeling a bit better now (with lingering tenderness), but I figure I should get it checked out in case I need an X-ray or physical therapy for it.

Not being able to do cardio exercise is torture for me though. I’m going stir crazy!

As per my Spring goal, I’ve been drinking a lot of fresh juice this week. It feels so good have the juicer back in my life.


Glowing Sunshine Juice

  • 1 grapefruit, peeled
  • 4 medium carrots
  • fresh ginger (approximately 1/2-inch piece)
  • 1/4 tsp raw maca powder (optional)


Check it out on the Foodthinkers website here.


I start my morning off with a fresh juice and then have breakfast about 30 minutes later. It makes breakfast extra delicious. :)


When I make juices, I never set out thinking of a ‘recipe’ or ‘flavour’ like I might with my other recipes. I usually just take whatever old veggies we have lying around and throw them in. I buy the old/discounted fruit and veggies from our grocery store specifically for juicing.

Lately I have been juicing with beets (responsible for that beautiful pink colour!), lemons, lime, carrots, ginger, grapefruit, apples (rarely), cucumbers, celery.


I think this one above was: 1/2 beet, 2 carrots, 1/2 English cucumber, 1/2 grapefruit, 1/2 inch piece ginger. It is not very sweet, but I don’t juice with sweet fruits very much (prefer to eat them!). If you like it sweet, add an apple or pear.

I also made Chocolate macaroons adding 1/3 cup of cocoa powder in the recipe I adapted from Healthy Hoggin.


The chocolate ones were good, but we both prefer the vanilla ones!

Last night we also made Nut Butter Crusted Parsnip fries. I TRIPLED the recipe this time because we had a friend over to watch the game. They did not last long!


Along with our favourite brew- Mill Street Organic.


Have a great Saturday!

I have been following your blog for a couple of months now and finally realized I should let you know how much I love it. Thank you for the beautiful attitude.

And feel better!

So sorry to hear about your tailbone – I feel your pain – LITERALLY – BUT, I have to tell you that I have had really amazing success with acupuncture – I got x-rays (it was dislocated), physical therapy, pelvic floor therapy (I DON’T WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT), injections, etc. and the only thing thing that I have had any lasting success with is acupuncture. I had about 8 treatments over a 3 week period, and now I get a treatment about once every 6 weeks if I need it, and I feel great. It has made a HUGE difference in my life.

Question: I think you’ve talked about those fantastic straws you feature in all your smoothies and juices, but I can’t find the info – can you tell me where you got them? I LOVE them!! And good luck with the tailbone!!

The color of the beet juice is just gorgeous!!

It’s amazing how colorful natural foods are! It’s so crazy we waste so much time/effort/health/ect. to create artificial colorings and crap that is harmful to us.. When the answer is right in front of our faces! Natural colorings, from natural substances.. let’s get this people! Also, you are making me very envious of your juicer. :) Hope you heal soon! The yoga will work wonders!!

Beautiful photos! I love juicing.. I just posted about it last night.. I look forward to cleaning out the fruit bowl and fridge at the end of each week to see what I can juice. I can’t wait to juice beets now!

I tried to make these a couple weeks ago and made some thing far from crispy…any tips? Mine turned out super limp.
