What's on your plate?

Hello there, ladies and gents!

 

Keeping in line with all the fun and interactive threads asking about your most recent halls, items you have your eyes on, what you're currently wearing, what's your hair routine, and more, I've decide to branch out and ask:

 

"What's on your plate?"

 

The beauty world doesn't just stop at skin care and cosmetics, it also goes hand in hand with your overall health and well-being, so with that, I'm curious to see what we're all chowing down and snacking on be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, or inbetween!

 

For those with apps that help count calories or to those who just want to keep a log, here's a place to share, possibly find and share some recipes, and even tips on maintaining a balanced diet.

 

Don't just share food items, but even drinks! I'm a huge fan of tea and at least have a cup of green tea a day (anti-oxidants) and drink plenty of water.

 

For lunch today, I had:

 

-Brown rice

-Steamed egg

-Steamed red snapper with green onion, sesame oil, and black pepper

-Gai lan (it's a type of Chinese vegetable/greens)

 

Now, tell me, Beauty Talk world, what do you have? Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Last night was seared lamb loin chops, rosemary potato wedges, and some steamed broc.

 

Over the weekend my family celebrated with a Red Egg party for the birth of my little cousin. We had two tables of folks but my boyfriend and I were the only ones who took home leftovers so we walked out with nine boxes of food.....roasted chicken and duck, lobster sauteed with ginger and scallions, dungeness crab fried rice, rice noodles with mushroom and cabbage, silken tofu with greens, and fried shrimp balls! We're down to about 4 boxes of food currently!

@lyravega

 

oooo!  I've used pork rinds as breading for fried chicken (something I've only done a few times because frying is so messy and unhealthy!) but I thought if I baked them the breading would get soggy.  But that looks crispy.  Share your secrets, please!  Temp/techniques?

Re: What's on your plate?

OMGGGGGGGGGG drooling!!!!! @lyravega Chicken parm is my husbands favorite!! This looks so good..

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks amazing!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum! Pork rinds make the best breading.

Re: What's on your plate?

Here's a vegetarian vegetable burger. It fell apart, as I had a feeling it would. It tasted okay. Husband liked it more than I did. Guacomole and tomato slices on the side.

Re: What's on your plate?

If you went to a fancy restaurant they would have called your burger that fell apart "deconstructed" and could mark it up more Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight we had ground lamb meatballs with zucchini and tomatoes, over rice noodles.

My bf always makes zucchini and tomato stew, never thought of adding turkey meatballs to it!
