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:

Tonight will be a crock pot Italian sausage stew switch a veggie base, spaghetti sauce, and leeks for the broth (plus everything else). Sounds weird, but it's amazing!  And I'm trying to add both leeks and okra this time around, should be very interesting :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Just tested the broth, still needs a few hours, but the leeks are definitely better in the soup than onion, there's a bolder savory flavor with a touch of sweet onion :smileyhappy: the good quality paprika adds to this new flavor dimension wonderfulweb while the veggie base removes the need for salt entirely :smileyvery-happy:

The autocorrect on my iPad is made of whisky. It does that every other sentence so I gave up and only post on BT with laptop.

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.
