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? :smileyvery-happy:

Lol the best compliment is someone getting seconds!  And those ribs sound positively mouth watering!

They are! And because you cook them at a lower heat, the meat gets tender and stays juicy!

Best thing of all: most Mexican food is gluten free!

Lanndan and I went out last night to our favorite Mexican food place with a couple of friends.  I LOVE El Charolais!!!!  I ordered one of the combination meals: 2 hard shell tacos, rice, and an enchilada.  I love their rice, which is a good thing since I have to limit my gluten.

Re: What's on your plate?

<3 me some Mexican food! Flautas are my favorite though!

Re: What's on your plate?

Tamales all the way for me, and the place that makes decent ones in town (so that I don't need to make them myself) and not to mention fountain Mexi-Coke, opened for their season the other day!  Definitely getting a tamale today ^.^

Re: What's on your plate?

TAMALES! omg omg omg. I looooooooove tamales back when I lived in TX, but now I'm up north, the only "Mexican food" up here are tacos and burritos. Oh, and tortilla chips/salsa/guac. Tamales are nonexistent. T.T

 

Ah deer meat, there's this really oddball guy friend I had in HS and his family hunts, so he bring deer meat jerky to school sometimes and I love it.

 

Ok, time for lunch.

Yum! What kind of tamales are there at the place?

MoreGun89

Re: What's on your plate?

Only pork and chicken chili, but the chicken chili are the best and delightfully zesty, the bonus (and the thing that makes them stand out to me besides the flavor) is the fact that they serve it in husk :smileyvery-happy:  I've been working on a copycat for their chicken ones, still haven't quite achieved it, but I've gotten close!

Ooo, the chicken chili sounds super interesting! My b/f's mom gave us homemade deer meat tamales but his freezer went out and we didn't know so we couldn't save them :smileysad:

MoreGun89

Re: What's on your plate?

Saaad, deer meat is one of the best meats!  They mae the best burgers too, just mix in a package of the golden onion Lipton recipe secrets per pound, add some avocado and voila!  Best. Burgers. EVER. :smileyvery-happy:

I love the flavor of onion (not keen about having actual onions on my burger though, I'm strange) and I bet the avocado makes it very moist and creamy in texture!

MoreGun89

Re: What's on your plate?

I should probably also clarify that the avocado is placed on top of the finished patty, if moisture (in place of fat) needs to be added, a small amount of tomato juice or apple cider vinegar will do the trick :smileyhappy:

MoreGun89

Re: What's on your plate?

Definitely does, I don't like flat out onion on mine either, but if they're sauteed or caramelized they're pretty delicious :smileyvery-happy:

lylysa

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm getting super hungry now though I had two breakfast tacos.

 

Pappas, juevos, y queso y turkey, juevos, y queso!

 

My belly is happy, but all this talk of tamales and burgers is making me wish lunch time was sooner!

Re: What's on your plate?

With summer and pool season on its way, my plate got a wole lot lighter lately.  Andi am forcing myself to drink more watefeel when I drink water on a regular basis, it just makes y face "feel" that much better and clearer.  I just have an addiction to Coke Zero....I need an intervention.  

 

Anybody out there have foods they eat to help with cellulite Or the appearance of?  As I get older, it's becoming soooomuch harder to lose and keep fit.
