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:

I love brussel sprouts! Haven't had them in forever, might have to pick some up at the grocery store next time!

I found some at the farmers' market last week and just about died of happiness.

Thin slices or cut pieces/chunks? I'm a sucker for honey glazed anything!

I made glazed pork chops and roasted asparagus for dinner.  (And baked potatoes with ranch and bacon bits for the kids because they would die if they even touched asparagus!)

Mhmm i love looking at the things people cook! I am a horrible cook. I've tried, and i just really suck at it. There are a handful of simple things i can make! I'm so happy my sister made Hamburger Helper for lunch or i'd be eating leftover Grimaldi's (Which i wouldn't be complaining about)

I should mention that I have a new obsession in my cooking life: the Le Creuset Skinny Grill Pan- from Sur la Table. I've been using it almost daily since I got it a month ago.  For most, way pricey splurge.  For me? Totally worth it already.

 

ETA: Due to local regulations, you pretty much need to have a SFH with a large yard to have a grill that's non-electric.  So, I get my beloved grill taste on a cooktop! Yay!

Re: What's on your plate?

What a great idea for a thread! I'm a huge foodie and tea-lover too. I rotate between Tazo Passion Tea, Celestial Seasonings Raspberry Zinger, and Teavana Sevenberry Sangria. Yesterday, I made a batch of mini bran muffins because my family is trying to be healthier and was really surprised by how delicious they are. The recipe was really easy even though it was a little hard to find ingrediants like unprocessed wheat bran and raw cane sugar in my local grocery store. That's what I've been snacking on. Let me know if you want me to post the recipe!

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooo, I have the Wild Berry Zinger from Celestial Seasonings!

 

If you get the chance, flax and also chia seeds are great additions to healthy cooking!

For breakfast, I had an everything bagel with cream cheese and a cup of coffee with caramel creamer.

 

Lunch is going to be chips and guacamole... and no, I don't care if that doesn't count as a meal, its tasty! :smileytongue:

 

For dinner I'm meeting a friend at a local turkish/mediterranean restaurant :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Am I the only person who eats left over dinner for breakfast?  I read through a few pages of posts and it would seem that I'm weird like my family says.

Yesterday I had leftover red beans and rice and right now I'm eating pasta with spicy marinara for breakfast.

 

I always start my day with a cup of coffee and coconut milk creamer but that's about as far as I go with breakfast-y things on a typical day.

Re: What's on your plate?

You aren't the only one, I do this a lot, Kalex!

 

Since I work night shift, I frankly eat what I want, when I want. Otherwise it confuses my brain too much. As long as the majority of it is healthy, I'm ok with it!
