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:

Mmm, sea salt is the best! So flavorful!

 

I just came back from Panera so it was chicken and wild rice soup, their Frontega chicken panini, chips and a strawberry smoothie! Their frozen drinks are 50% for August from 3-5! Whohoo, it's like a Panera happy hour!

Since I have been on clear liquid diet for a week I was finally able to eat!!!!! We went to a Mongolian Grill soooo good!  To drink I had a watermelon spritzer which is watermelon, pineapple juice and sprite (I spiked it) haha :smileyhappy:

What all seafood was in the soup? Your meal sounds super yummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

OK, I have to share today's dinner because it was out of my wheelhouse (I am comfortable with cooking most critters that had legs), but also because it was delish.

 

  • Grilled Koho Salmon with Chimichurri sauce
  • 2 Grilled Scallops, topped with Garlic and Herb Butter
  • small scoop of twice-baked macaroni and cheese
  • Sparkling water

Yummmmmmy!

Re: What's on your plate?

Omg Sounds Yummy!! You just made me hungry!! Time to figure out whats for lunch!! :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh, I have leftovers for lunch now! We had extra prosciutto so he wrapped some pieces of chicken with that too! *drool*

Re: What's on your plate?

Mhm! I feel in the mood to cook! Which i'm horrible at!! 

Haha, Maybe i'll find something easy to make!

Re: What's on your plate?

Baking chicken is super simple and so yummy! You can season it all sorts of ways!

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha Baking Chicken is one of the very few things i can do! I love to coat Chicken tenders in the French's French Fried Onions. That stuff i soooo good! But i hate making mashed potato's and all that good stuff! But that might be for dinner tonight!

Mmm... tonight's dinner was a bit different and nice.

 

All of these fit on a salad plate, for serving size reference:

  • Tiny scoop of mac and cheese

Plus, half a cup of lobster bisque.

 

It just felt like summer!
