One of my very favorite food blogs is Oh She Glows.
Angela’s recipes always sound and look delicious PLUS she usually uses ingredients that I keep on hand. I hate it when I have to buy a bunch of random ingredients that I probably won’t use for any other recipes! …Lucuma anyone?
This past week I have tried 2 of Angela’s recipes.
The first being her Detox Salad. I was really excited to try this recipe because I usually have a hard time eating enough veggies when I choose to eat a meal from the nuts/seeds/dried fruit category. I like to have half of a Larabar before going to my group fitness classes because it gives me just the burst of energy that I need to make it through the class. Eating the Larabar though makes it so that I am stuck with the nuts/seeds/dried fruits for another 3 hours, I am usually ravenous after the classes and am ready for lunch immediately. Filling up on spoonfuls of sunflower seed butter just doesn’t seem that nutritious of a post workout lunch. This detox salad is the perfect post workout nuts/seeds/dried fruits category lunch!
The second recipe that I made was Healthy Spelt Pancakes for One. I actually didn’t get to taste these pancakes since I made them for Kenley for breakfast and she gobbled them up! The recipe made 6 small pancakes. Kenley ate 3 hot off the griddle with maple syrup and then she ate the remaining 3 the next morning for breakfast. I will definitely be making these pancakes again! The batter cooks up easily and makes picture perfect pancakes that are picky 2-year-old approved!
Have you made any Oh She Glows recipes? I really enjoyed her 3 Minute Vegan Parmesan Cheese. Next on my list to try is her Garlic Scrape Pesto and the Sour Cream and Onion Kale Chips that she posted about!
