BOOK REVIEW: OH SHE GLOWS EVERY DAY *NEW* COOKBOOK

Posted on Posted in contest, dairy-free, gluten-free, Healthy food, healthy lifestyle, healthy recipes, oh she glows, plant based, Q&A with Angela Liddon, vegan

I remember back in 2011 when my sister showed me the great vegan blog that is OH SHE GLOWS. At the time I was transitioning into a healthier plant based lifestyle and this blog honestly saved my life. I remember going to book stores looking for healthy cookbooks, searching through my mom’s cookbooks and even searching online and I couldn’t find ANYTHING that I didn’t have to modify. How on earth do I change a recipe to fit my lifestyle? It was so intimidating! So Angela’s blog meant the world to me because I didn’t need to change anything!

As the years went on ohsheglows.com was typed in my searchbar on the weekly and my family and I were happy, well fed campers.

When Angela released her first cookbook America went crazy!! She came a New York Times Bestseller within the year! All of her blogger fans, including me, were all so proud of her.

Now that the release of her second book is here, we all sit in anticipation to get out hands on the cook so we can race to the kitchen and whip something new and delicious up!

“HELLS YES!

And she accepted! To not only do that, but also a book giveaway!!!!!! JUST FOR YOU!

Q & A with the lovely Angela

What was your goal with Oh She Glows back when you started it in 2008?I started my blog, Oh She Glows, at a time when I was unhappy with my career as a researcher and needed a fun, creative outlet to distract myself. I quickly fell head over heels in love with it, and discovered a passion for recipe creation and food photography that, to be honest, I never really expected to find! It’s been such an amazing adventure.

What types of changes did you feel with your body when you started eating more plant based whole foods?When I eat healthy, plant-based meals I feel on top of the world. I have a sense of calmness, consistent energy, and a positive outlook. I can focus on my work easily. In contrast, if I eat too much sugar or processed foods I often feel lethargic, moody, and anxious. Don’t get me wrong, my diet isn’t perfect and there are days when I eat poorly, but I strive to eat wholesome foods as much as I can because I know what a difference it makes in how I feel.

What was the first ONE recipe that made you famous?My Green Monster Smoothie! Eight years later, it’s still one of my most well-known recipes. A close runner-up are my Glo Bar (granola bar) recipes (you can find those recipes in my cookbooks).

Were you and Eric married before you started Oh She Glows?I started Oh She Glows about 2 months after Eric and I got married. We had recently returned from our honeymoon, were back to work full-time, and I needed a creative outlet or hobby in my life!

I bet he was so supportive through it all – Blog to Glow Bakery to Book. Are there any times that stand out where he really helped you through difficult times?Oh, he saves my butt nearly every week! I don’t know what I’d do without Eric; he’s incredibly skilled and runs the IT/business side of things. We’re a great team (even if we don’t always agree on things!).

All of your recipes are outstanding, from drinks to snacks, and main courses to desserts – what types of recipes do you like creating most and why?I’ve always had a sweet tooth, so I would say desserts! I absolutely love the challenge of taking a traditionally unhealthy dessert and making it into something that’s much healthier while still tasting amazing.

You’re friend with so many awesome bloggers throughout the net, if you could pick 3 other bloggers to share because of their healthy recipes and their artistic photographic flare, who would you pick and why?Oh man, soooo many! I’m in awe of the talent in the food blogging community. If I had to pick a, giving a shout-out to a few people I admire, it would be fellow Canadians Meghan Telpner, Laura Wright, and Erin Ireland.

How did the Oh She Glows Tea Shoppe come to be?We opened the OSG Tea Shoppe because I’m obsessed with all things tea and wanted to share my passion for it. After being disappointed with so many flavours of tea that I tried from the store, I wanted to create my own line that I absolutely adored. It was a fun process and we learned so much. In the end, we made the difficult decision to close the tea business after the first year so we could focus on developing The Oh She Glows Recipe App (which was super time-intensive, but something we enjoy even more!).  Who knows, though, maybe some day in the future we’ll open up a cafe!

What is your #1 favourite smoothie ingredient?Frozen banana, for sure! I rarely make a smoothie without one unless I’m specifically trying to make a banana-free smoothie for the blog or book. It lends the best, ice cream–like texture with natural sweetness. Plus, you can’t beat how cheap they are.

If you could recommend 1 recipe, from your new book, to a non Oh She Glows fan, which one would convert them?My recipe testers went wild for my Fusilli Lentil-Mushroom Bolognese. Not only is it so comforting, hearty, and delicious, but it’s protein-packed, nutritious, and can be made in 30 minutes or less.

You are obviously radiant and glowing from the inside out. If you could give any health advice for what to eat, drink, or do daily (fitness etc.), what would it be and why?I’m a big believer in getting a lot of fluids each day. I start my day with a big glass of water mixed with a green superfood powder, and then I have a matcha tea shortly after. Both of these things give me loads of energy. I also love kombucha (which is packed with enzymes) when I need a fizzy mid-afternoon pick me up, and I just generally try to drink a lot of tea and water throughout the day. I also sleep with a small thermos of water beside my bed each night. This is a habit that I started when I was breastfeeding my daughter, and it’s stuck with me 2 years later. Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night (which is frequently at 9 months pregnant!) I have a sip or two of water to help rehydrate.When it comes to exercise, I used to be a chronic cardio girl (running was my main thing for a long time), but over the past year or two, I’ve really gotten into Barre3 workouts. I subscribe to their online videos so it’s super convenient to do at home, and I’ve really noticed a difference doing them a few times a week. Of course, when I have time I like to go to in-person classes because nothing quite motivates me more than a group workout setting! So now my motto is to do a mix…a bit of cardio and a bit of strength seems to be a great balance for me and never leaves me feeling burned out on one thing

These 2 recipes I am about to share with you are my 2 new fave from the book! The granola is so delicious and the crackers are the perfect way to eat hummus! Thank you Angela, for putting so much hard work into creating beautiful, mouth-watering, healthy recipes for us to enjoy EVERY DAY!

granola clusters

Roasted Hazelnut-Almond Granola Clusters

VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, SOY-FREE OPTION, KID-FRIENDLY, FREEZER-FRIENDLY
MAKES 6 TO 7 CUPS (1.5 TO 1.75 L)
PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES
BAKE TIME: 30 TO 36 MINUTES
Oh, this granola. It has become an obsession for me and for Eric, who loves it as much as I do. The first time I made it, I knew it had to go into this book. It’s stolen the hearts of everyone who has tried it, from my recipe testers to family and friends. The granola is brimming with fragrant toasted hazelnuts and almonds, and it’s studded with chocolate chips and dried cherries. Binding it all together is a decadent mixture of maple syrup, coconut oil, and my homemade Roasted Hazelnut-Almond Butter (page 77), which brings out the naturally nutty flavor of the granola. If you don’t want to make the Roasted Hazelnut-Almond Butter, you can substitute raw or roasted almond butter in a pinch. Hard as it is not to keep this granola all to yourself, it makes a lovely homemade gift for the holidays, too. Just allow it to cool completely and then fill up a mason jar and add a ribbon and tag. It’s easy and festive, and your friends and family will be just dying for the recipe!
Ingredients:
3/4 cup (175 mL) raw hazelnuts
1/2 cup (125 mL) raw almonds
1 1/3 cups (325 mL) gluten-free rolled oats
1/2 cup (125 mL) unsweetened shredded coconut
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (90 mL) non-dairy mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup (125 mL) dried cherries, finely chopped
2 tablespoons (30 mL) chia seeds
1/4 teaspoon plus 1/8 teaspoon (1.5 mL) fine sea salt
1 tablespoon (15 mL) virgin coconut oil
4 1/2 teaspoons (22 mL) brown rice syrup
1/4 cup (60 mL) Roasted Hazelnut-Almond Butter (recipe below)
1/3 cup (75 mL) pure maple syrup
2 teaspoons (10 mL) pure vanilla extract
Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Spread the hazelnuts over a small baking sheet
and the almonds over another small baking sheet. Put both in the oven and roast for 12 to 14 minutes, until the hazelnut skins have darkened, cracked, and are almost falling off. Let the nuts cool on the sheet for 5 minutes or so. Transfer the hazelnuts to a damp dishcloth and rub vigorously until most of the skins fall off. The goal
is to remove most of them, but a few stragglers are okay! Chop the hazelnuts and almonds and set aside.
2. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and keep the oven set to 300°F (150°C).
3. In a large bowl, stir together the chopped hazelnuts and almonds, oats, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, cherries, chia seeds, and salt.
4. In a small pot, melt the coconut oil over low heat. Transfer it to a small bowl and whisk in the brown rice syrup, hazelnut-almond butter, maple syrup, and vanilla until smooth. (Normally I would just whisk everything into the pot to save a dish, but for this recipe we don’t want the wet mixture to become warm and melt the chocolate chips while mixing.)
5. With a spatula, scoop the wet mixture on top of the dry mixture, being sure to get every last drop. Stir well until thoroughly combined.6. Scoop the granola mixture onto the prepared baking sheet and spread it out into a thin layer, no more than 1/4- to 1/2-inch (5 mm to 1 cm) thickness. Try to space out the granola as much as possible so it has room to breathe while cooking.7. Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for 8 to 12 minutes more, until the bottom and edges of the granola are just starting to turn golden (the granola itself will still look a bit pale in color). The granola will get crispy as it cools.8. Let the granola cool completely on the baking sheet, then break it ap art into clusters. It will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 weeks or in a large zip-top freezer bag in the freezer for a couple of months. Be sure to press all the air out before freezing (or use a straw to suck out all the air from the bag.)

sun dried crackers

 

 

Sun-Dried Tomato and Garlic Super-Seed Crackers

VEGAN, GLUTEN-FREE, NUT-FREE, SOY-FREE, OIL-FREE, KID-FRIENDLY OPTION, FREEZER-FRIENDLY

MAKES 35 (2-INCH/5 CM SQUARE) CRACKERS

PREP TIME: 20 MINUTES

BAKE TIME: 53 TO 55 MINUTES

These elegant, chewy crackers are fit for a high-end bakery! Infused with sun-dried tomatoes, oregano,garlic, oats, and a slew of nutritious seeds, they taste like pizza, but they’re full of health benefits. The Combination of seeds is rich in healthy fatty acids and antioxidants, and the recipe is both gluten-free and tree nut-free. They may look intimidating to make, but they come together incredibly fast and easily. If you’ve ever been intimidated by rolling out cracker dough, you have to try this recipe; the dough doesn’t even require a rolling pin. Simply spread it out with your hands!

Ingredients:

1/3 cup (75 mL) sun-dried tomatoes (dry, not oil-packed)

1 1/2 cups (375 mL) boiling water

1 cup (250 mL) raw hulled sunflower seeds

1 cup (250 mL) gluten-free rolled oats

1/4 cup (60 mL) hemp hearts

1/4 cup (60 mL) raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)

1/4 cup (60 mL) white sesame seeds

2 tablespoons (30 mL) black sesame seeds or more white sesame seeds

2 tablespoons (30 mL) whole chia seeds

3 tablespoons (45 mL) ground chia seeds

1 1/4 teaspoons (6 mL) garlic powder

1 large clove garlic, grated on a Microplane

2 teaspoons (10 mL) dried oregano

1 teaspoon (5 mL) coconut sugar or natural cane sugar

1 teaspoon (5 mL) dried basil

3/4 teaspoon (4 mL) fine sea salt, or to taste

1/8 teaspoon (0.5 mL) cayenne pepper, or to taste (optional)

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C). Line two standard baking sheets (13 × 18inches/32 × 40 cm) or one extra-large baking sheet (15 × 21 inches/38 × 53 cm) with parchment paper.

2. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl and cover with the boiling water.Set aside to soak for 5 to 10 minutes.

3. In a large bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients.

4. With a slotted spoon, scoop the softened sun-dried tomatoes out of the soaking water and transfer to a mini food processor, reserving the soaking water. Process the tomatoes until minced. Alternatively, you can chop the tomatoes by hand—just be sure to chop them very fine so the crackers are easy to slice. Scoop the tomatoes into the bowl with the seed mixture.

5. Add the tomato soaking water to the bowl with the seed mixture. Stir for about a minute, until the water has been mostly absorbed by the seed mixture and is no longer pooling on the bottom of the bowl.

6. Transfer half the seed mixture to each baking sheet (or if using one extra-large baking sheet, spoon all of it onto the sheet). With your hands, spread the mixture starting in the center and pushing outward,until you form a large, misshapen rectangle, no more than 1/4 inch (5mm) thick. The mixture will be very wet, but this is normal. Be sure that the dough is uniform in thickness and the corners aren’t too thick.

7. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the baking sheet(s) and using a pizza slicer, carefully slice the dough into large crackers. Carefully flip each cracker using a spatula or your hands. Don’t worry if a couple break here and there! If for some reason the crackers are sticking to the parchment paper,just leave them asis and remove them after the second bake.

8. Return the baking sheet(s) to the oven and bake for 23 to 25 minutes more,until the crackers are golden. Watch closely during the last 5 to 10 minutes of baking to ensure they don’t burn. Remove from the oven and let cool on the baking sheet(s) for 5 minutes. Transfer the crackers to a couple of cooling racks and let cool completely. Store the cooled crackers in a paper bag on the counter for up to 1 week. You can also store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or in a freezer-safe zip-top bag in the freezer for 3 to 4 weeks. If the crackers soften while storing (this can happen in humid environments), toast in the oven at 300°F (150°C) for 5 to 7 minutes, then let cool completely. This is usually enough to return their former crispness!

Tip: To make ground chia seed, in a high-speed blender, grind 1/2 cup (125 mL) chia seeds on high until a fine powder forms. Store any unused ground chia seed in the fridge in an airtight container.For 9-Spice Super-Seed Crackers Omit the sun-dried tomatoes and use 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) room-temperature water (it doesn’t have to be boiling since we’re not soaking the tomatoes anymore). Swap the garlic powder, garlic clove, oregano, basil, salt, and cayenne for 1 batch (about 2 tablespoons/30 mL) of my 9-Spice Mix (page 258). Proceed as directed.

    Katie Fisher

  2. I’m going to comment here too – because I REALLY want this! hahaha

    I found Angela after finding out I had a dairy allergy, she’s amazing and inspiring and a huge reason I started dairy free betty – She’s so vibrant and just lovely – I’ve enjoyed following her all these years and I’d absolutely love her newest cookbook!

  3. Hello. I was 22 when I stumbled upon Angela’s blog. I made her cashew basil tomato pasta first. My spouse and I really enjoyed it. It would be great to add this book to my collection. I have her 1st cookbook and love it. Nice post!!

  4. LOVE THIS!!! ♥ ♥ ♥

    She loves Kombucha!? Me too!!

    Add my name to the draw please and THANK YOU!

    Nice blog post Mandy. Keep em comin!

  5. I have been following Oh She Glows for years. Angela is a real inspiration to me in so many ways. I would love to win this cookbook!

  6. I found Oh She Glows while looking for recipes online. I bought the first cookbook and it has become one of my favorites. I would love to win the second!

  7. For years I was always the “hippie” room mate/friend/girlfriend who loved to make “weird food” like nut loaf, spinach smoothies, granola, beet humus, power bowls and super salads. My flirtation with vegan and vegetarian cuisin was considered so unusual (we do eat local and happy meat and fish and grass fed dairy). In university, I came across Angela’s blog and was so thrilled to find someone who was passionate about this type of food too and was making it accessible, easy, non-pretentious and fun. When Oh She Glows cookbook came out I ran to the book store to buy it. Angela’s modern, fresh and simple take on vegan food is perfection. Now I am a mom of two young enthusiastic eaters and I can always count on Angela’s recipes to be a huge hit with the entire family! Soooo excited about her new cook book!!

  8. Oh She Glows was one of the first food blogs I started following and still the one I turn to the most often for healthy vegan recipes! I’ve loved everything that I’ve made so far from her first cookbook and can’t wait to try the recipes from her new book too!

  9. I only recently discovered “oh she glows”…it was referred to in a tweet I was reading about something else and I was curious enough to go investigate. I was glad I did! I am a single parent and want to feed my kids a more heathy and less processed diet. I got the first book from the library and would like to have this new one for my own! I’m always on the lookout for recipes with no tree nuts too, as I am allergic.

  10. A new book! Mandy, I would love to win this!

    I started reading Angela’s blog when I decided to eat vegetarian. Her pictures were so beautiful and I loved reading her weekly stories. I can finally say that I now know how to cook because of her site.

  11. I LOVE OH SHE GLOWS!! I discovered the blog after my friend bought me her cookbook. I use it all the time now! Im not a vegan but I do eat mostly plantbased healthy foods. I love the Q&A!! Thanks for sharing Mandy.

    Sue

  12. I can’t thank you enough Mandy, for this beautiful post! I’m so touched, and honoured that you’ve enjoyed my recipes so much.
    I’ll be linking to your post in my FAQs post today! Hope that is okay.
    happy cooking,
    Angela xo

  13. I discovered Oh She Glows when I was transitioning to becoming a vegan. I would like to win the book because I love the first one and I am excited to make new delicious meals for my family.

  14. I recently discovered Angela’s blog. My son has an egg allergy and I’m always looking to find good baking recipes. Everything I’ve tried is fantastic! I just got her first book and would love to win this one!

  15. I’ve been following Oh She Glows for many years, and it’s been so long that I don’t remember how I discovered it. I would love this book because her first cookbook is amazing!

  16. I would love to win the cookbook! I’ve been following Angela for the past 5 years. I would enjoy this book because I love cooking plant based for my family!

  17. We go way back…..Angela has been my go to for vegan recipes since the green monster craze. Why do I want her book?……..’Cos it won’t just sit on the shelf …….it will get used….

  18. I discovered Oh She Glows blog from you Mandy, and I would love to win this book because I myself have a passion for cooking and eating healthy foods and am always searching for new ones. I find a lot of recipes with meat but would be open to trying more with other protein sources.

  19. I think way back OSG was the first blog I found for vegan recipes! This book looks so great, loving the cover and recipes I’ve seen so far from it!

  20. I discovered Oh She Glows awhile ago when I was doing internet searches for different recipes. OSG kept popping up, and when I finally checked out the web-site I was happily amazed to see so many yummy-sounding recipes using ingredients I could eat! I have multiple food sensitivities, and this cookbook would be a valued addition to my library.

  21. I’d like to win a copy of the new Oh She Glows cookbook because all of the OSG recipes I’ve tried are amazing. We are not a vegan family, but Angela’s recipes are so accessible. I believe I discovered Angela’s blog when I was searching for smoothie recipes.

  22. MEEEEEE PLEASE! I bought The Oh She Glows Cookbook last year and love the recipes. I am slowly transitioning my family to a more healthier lifestyle and this book has been a game changer. They haven’t even figured out that the “beat the heat frozen dessert pizza” is healthy! I would love to have another book of recipes to add to my arsenal of healthy options. Thanks

  23. I discovered OSG when searching for recipe inspiration for my son who has many food allergies! We have had so much success with her recipes!!

  24. Did she seriously just mention Kombucha!? I didn’t know I could love her more than I already do!!!!

    Sweet blog Mandy! I also use Green tea to make my Kombucha at home!

    I’d like to win this book because I’m always looking for delicious recipes to nourish my body with ❤

    Peace,
    K. Gal

  25. I discovered Oh She Glows four years ago when I transitioned to a plant based diet. I actually pre-ordered this cookbook (waiting for it to arrive) but if I won, I would give it to my friend at work who has food allergies and tries to eat healthy. We both have Angela’s first cookbook and love it!

  26. I found out about Oh She Glows from a sweet friend. Angela’s first cookbook is amazing and I would love to also have her new book! The recipes have helped me in so many ways as I have struggled with digestion issues.

  27. I can’t remember how I discovered OSG, I have been following it for so long. I want OSG Everyday because Angela’s recipes are so consistently good, and flavors/combos that appeal to me.

  28. Hi! I discovered Oh she glows through my aunt: it was the one recipe book she always used! Every time I would ask for the recipe, it would be from that same book! This led me to start religiously reading the blog- it’s helped to feel better both physically and mentally! I would love to win this book because I would be honored to have a physical copy of Angela’s wondrous recipes. I’m bursting at the idea of getting to eat more of her carefully crafted creations. Her recipes have shown me how deliciously plant based eating can be, and greatly influenced my recent decision to phase most animal products out of my diet.
    Thank you for having the give away!! I can’t wait to make the crackers 🙂

  29. I discovered OSG when my best friend (who is vegan) was coming to visit for a week and I needed to cook for her! I so enjoyed eating vegan for that week that I continued with many of Angela’s recipes. I would love to have the new book to use and display next to her first cookbook!

  30. I used to eat quite healthy and lately have been slipping… Maybe it was because of my Husband’s Birthday month and eating out all those freebie Birthday dinners – especially since he’s a major fan of dessert! I need to get back on track before my Mom’s and my Birthday month of October and feel that this would be the best way to start!

  31. I discovered “Oh She Glows” while reading the blog “The Full Helping” (formerly called “Choosing Raw”). Gena Hamshaw of “The Full Helping” has interviewed Angela back in 2014 and also featured one of Angela’s recipes for a chilled chocolate espresso torte. I then visited Angela’s website and started reading her entries from the beginning… I was hooked! I purchased her first cookbook and it is now the one I refer to the most when figuring out what to cook next. I would love to win a copy of her latest cookbook so that I can share it with friends. Thanks for the terrific give-away!

  32. I found Oh She Glows about five years ago while searching for vegan desserts. I have Angela’s first cookbook and have given many copies as gifts. I would love to own a copy of this second cookbook.
    Thank you for the interview! It was lovely.

  33. I discovered OSG a year ago when I was transitioning into a plant-based diet and have never looked back- I now have her app, her first cookbook, and am eagerly awaiting her second one to come in the mail! I especially love how easy and delicious ALL of her recipes are.

  34. I found Oh She Glows last year while looking for vegan recipes online. I subscribed to the newsletter and bought her first cookbook soon after! I love the recipes (so yummy and healthy!) and Angela’s story is very inspirational, something I think many women can relate too. I would love her newest cookbook to continue to discover the power of plant-based diets. The ingredients are all so realistic and the recipes are easy to follow. Keep up the good work Angela!

  35. I wish I could remember how I found Oh She Glows. I suspect it may have been a link from another blog like Running with Spoons. The recipes that I’ve seen so far look amazing and I want to try those crackers for sure!

  36. I discovered her through searching the web and googling “popular vegan websites”. Hers was on several lists of people’s recommendation. I would love the book so I can help friends, family eat better and healthier. I am always looking for recipes that people can say “this is vegan!!!” And I love her blog and the comments of others encouraged that the recipes are delicious.

  37. I found oh she glows after I got an ulcer. I have been vegan in the past and thought maybe I should search out some real recipes that actually taste good to heal my stomach. I was over impressed by the fact that her recipes tasted good, we’re so flexible to my own sensitivities and were made with real food, not processed, not a bunch of fake meat and tofu. I would love to have this book to expand on my recipe collection and to add to the first oh she glows cookbook I already own. By the way, perfect recipes for those with ulcers or reflux!

  38. I discovered Oh She Glows years ago but I don’t remember how – probably an internet a search for healthy recipes. I’d like this book because all the recipes I’ve seen so far look delicious!

  39. I discovered “Oh She Glows” in 2012 when I had my first surgery and was diagnosed with endometriosis. I was researching Endo and how clean eating helps to manage the symptoms. I really found “Oh She Glows” refreshing through her many (easy to make) recipes and user friendly website. As a matter of fact, I’m making her Glowing Spiced Lentil Soup tonight. I really want this book because having a physical copy would allow me to continue my journey with healthy eating. As well as, share what I’ve learned with others.

  40. OSG was one of the first food blogs I followed. Angela was a big part of my introduction to vegan cooking and has been an inspiration ever since. I am so excited to see what she has come up with in this book!

  41. This seed cracker recipe looks so good! Thanks for sharing!

    I found Oh She Glows through Pinterest. I stumbled upon a board that had a couple of her recipes, and followed the links to Angela’s site. That was all it took…I was in love!

    I’d like to win this book to add more of Angela’s recipes to my rotations. They’re beautiful, healthy, delicious, and generally easy to make. Can’t beat that combo.

  42. Gosh, it is hard to remember exactly how I discovered it. I am guessing it was probably through Pinterest. I loved it immediately! I always find recipes on the blog that I want to make so I think having the book would be a great resource.

  43. I’ve been reading oh she glows since the very beginning, Halloween 2008. I believe she commented on one of Kath eats’ posts and I was curious so I clicked on over to her blog. Been hooked ever since!

    I adore Angela’s writing style and no matter the content of her posts you can just tell that she’s a positive and very lovable person. She’s the type of woman I would to befriend. Gushing aside I’m ridiculously excited for this new cookbook. My husband has put his foot down on buying more cookbooks but he can’t say no if I win a copy, now can he?

  44. I found OSG when I was looking for a great veggie soup mix and found her 10-spice veggie soup. It was the best soup I’d ever had, and I started making everything else from her blog and loved every recipe I tried. I love her focus on whole foods, watching costs, great flavors/seasoning, and easy to follow recipes.

    I want her new cookbook because we cook almost exclusively from her first cookbook and blog, and I would like to have even more recipes to choose from!!!

    I’m also excited to visit your blog now, too, Mandy!

  45. I found OSG when searching for a homemade granola bar recipe! Conveniently, I was also transitioning to a plant based diet. I have her first cookbook and use it every week to plan at least one meal (but usually more)!! She’s such an inspiration to me. Everything I make of hers comes out amazing!! I don’t know how she does it, but I’m so thankful she shares all her delicious recipes.

  46. Heard about it “somewhere but my sister provided more details on this book. Looks very interesting!
    I will try some of the above recipes soon. Thank you for offering a give-away.

  47. This book was recommended to my sister by the teacher of her healthy cooking class. She told me about the website, which I went wild for, them she bought me the book. it has transformed our family’s eating and health. Would LOVE her new book!

  48. I have been following Oh She Glows for years. I have been a vegetarian for 25+ years, and I think I found her when I was transitioning to a vegan lifestyle. Love her and love this blog post. You are a great writer and I am off to check out your other blog posts! 🙂
    I would love to win this book – I have never met an Angela recipe I didn’t love!

  49. i think I stumbled on her site from another blog but I have been following her for a while now so I can’t remember. I would love to win a copy of the book in order to be able to try out the recipes.

  50. By chance I found her endurance cracker recipe online about 5 yrs ago, then her magical blueberry chia jam. Never looked back. Everything I’ve made is perfect. Love the enchiladas. Family staple.

  51. I’ve been following OSG for about five years and love that while I’m the only plant-based eater in our home, Angela’s recipes are a hit with everyone.

  52. I first found out about OSG in 2013 after I watched Forks Over Knives. Nearly every time I was looking for a healthy, plant-based recipe, I ended up on her blog. It has become my all-time favorite food blog. I have made her recipes countless times and I also have her first cookbook and her app (both of which I use very frequently and love!) I’d love to have this book firstly because Angela wrote it – isn’t that reason enough! 🙂 But also because it has so many new recipes that I’m dying to try like the Meyer Lemon Cheesecake with Strawberry-Vanilla Compote and those caramel brownies to name a few. (I have a weakness for sweets if you couldn’t tell.) The hardest part will be deciding what to make first!

  53. I discovered this blog many years ago and I felt in love with the simplicity of her recipes. Simplicity, that’s what i am waiting for in her next cookbook. congratulations to Angela for being such an inspiration for all of us.

  54. I discovered Oh She Glows while looking for recipes for my husband who has food allergies, and since then we’ve been trying out new vegan recipes. Would love to win this book!

  55. A close friend had her first book, which she raved about the recipes. I copied a couple down and tried them. My family, which is not vegan or vegetarian, LOVED the dishes! I became a follower of her blog and try to sneak in one of her recipes into our weekly menu. It is amazing how Angela is able to create delicious meals with commonly found ingredients that a meat eating husband does not turn his nose up. Thank you for having the book give away and the recipe!

  56. I discovered Oh She Glows while I was taking an environmental ethics class in college. I used Angela’s recipes for a week-long vegan challenge, and never looked back! Now, I use her recipes on a weekly basis and would love to add the recipes from the latest OSG cookbook to my arsenal.

  57. I discovered OSG a few years ago, I think through another blog. Love Angela’s writing and her recipes — never had a miss with one 🙂 Would love this cookbook!

  58. I discovered the OSG website while looking for healthy and creative recipes when I was a newlywed 🙂 I would love to win the book for some new ideas!

  59. I was new to plant-based eating last fall, was looking for a recipe to make and came across the Oh She Glows blog. It didn’t take long to find that she made food that we couldn’t get enough of. I cook at least one new recipe of her’s a month. My goal is to get through all of them, which is why I NEED this cookbook! 🙂

  60. I discovered Oh She Glows four years ago when I was searching for a vegan dessert I could make for my vegan roommate. Now I’ve been a vegan for three years and would love to have the book written by the author who helped me make my first vegan dish!

  61. I love Angela and Oh She Glows! I discovered her when I was searching online for an inspirational vegan cooking/lifestyle blog and bought her first cookbook as soon as it was released. I want this book because as a busy mom this style of everyday cooking is exactly what I do.

  62. I discovered Oh She Glows through a vegan blog search. I was looking for more vegan blogs about a year ago because I love to bake, and I came across Angela’s blog! I love her blog and recipes. I would like this book because all of her recipes are amazing!! The ones you posted look delicious!

  63. I discovered oh she glows when I visited my brother and his family 2 weeks ago I’m Saskatoon and I’m hooked! They have used the book for a year with much success. I was at a point I knew I wanted to get healthier and fitter and this came into my life. It’s just 2 weeks but I’m feeling so much better, my clothes fit better and I am loving my new past time trying all the recipes. My life is improving with this new way of eating, inspired by this amazing book!!!!

  64. I discovered Angela’s blog while I was in college (almost 5 years ago!) while looking for stories of other people who had struggled with disordered eating. I became obsessed with her blog and have made so many of her recipes over the years. I love her food and she has always inspired me. Can’t wait to start cooking from her new book!

  65. I discovered Oh She Glows when I was in undergrad in 2008 through another blogger’s post. I would love to have her new cookbook because as a full-time graduate student and employee, I need healthy recipes that don’t require a lot of time/effort!

  66. I love the first Oh She glows cookbook!! I got it from the library when I was checking out new vegan recipes and then started following the blog. I would love to try out the recipes in her latest book! Thank you!
