After a decade of struggling with an eating disorder and subsisting on diet, low-calorie processed foods, Angela Liddon vowed to get healthy once and for all. Done with feeling sick and tired, she threw out her fat-free butter spray and low-calorie frozen dinners. Instead, Angela embraced whole foods that made her glow from the inside out. But first, she had to learn to cook—and eat—right.
Five years ago, Angela started a blog, ohsheglows.com, to spread the word about her journey to health and the powerful transformation that food can make in our lives. Almost overnight, her energy and authenticity attracted readers eager to create their own positive life changes. Today, Oh She Glows attracts millions of visitors every month, making it one of the most popular vegan recipe blogs on the Internet.
The Oh She Glows Cookbook is packed with more than 100 delicious recipes such as go-to breakfasts, protein-packed snacks, hearty entrées, and decadent desserts. From entrées like the Crowd-Pleasing Tex Mex Casserole and Empowered Noodle Bowl to sweet treats like the Chilled Chocolate Espresso Torte with Hazelnut Crust and Angela’s famous Glo Bakery Glo Bars, there is something for everyone. The Oh She Glows Cookbook is also allergy-friendly, with many gluten-free and soy-free options.
Whether you are a vegan or you simply want to incorporate a few vegan meals into your week, Angela’s recipes are a must-have for anyone who longs to eat well, feel great, and simply glow!

Oh She Glows is:
“Best Vegan Blog”
“Best Overall Blog” and “Best Veg Blog”
Dear Cookbook Lover,
It’s hard to remember a time when going vegan seemed “weird” or “out there.” In the last few years, big names like Ellen DeGeneres, Al Gore, Samuel L. Jackson and so many more have embraced a vegan lifestyle for its health benefits and for its kindness to animals and the planet. But Angela Liddon was one of the first voices to really take hold on the internet and bring plant-based cooking to a big, mainstream audience. Her blog, Oh She Glows, which she began in 2008, is now one of the most voraciously read—and cooked from—vegan blogs out there.
Angela’s story and her passion for cooking with real, whole foods ingredients has brought her millions of fans who hail from all over the world. She’s been asked for years when she’d publish her first cookbook, and we are so proud to have published The Oh She Glows Cookbook this spring at Avery. What truly sets Angela’s recipes apart is just how crowd-pleasing they are: whether you’re throwing a dinner party for hard-to-please (meat loving) guests, cooking for a family event or for the kids, each and every recipe in this book will win them all over. Angela has truly perfected the art of cooking plant-based and the result is food that isn’t just delicious vegan food, it’s delicious food period. Indulgent and irresistible, but also healthy. Who doesn’t want to eat well and glow too?!
We can’t stop cooking out of this cookbook (and I can’t keep copies on my shelf!) We had a potluck here a few weeks ago and devoured the Creamy Avocado-Potato Salad (so creamy), Glowing Strawberry-Mango Guacamole, Crispy Almond Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, and much more. And be sure not to miss the Soul Soothing African Peanut Stew that lives up to its name and Angela’s inventive and delicious Homemade Yolos. If you are anything like us, you’ll be hooked from the first recipe.
So start cooking and get glowing!
