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?

Those fries....Oh...my...delicious O_O


A fried egg in a burger is THE best! <3 it!


Ooooo, Korean recipes!!!!! Share share share! My bf and I are fans of Bi Bim Bop and though the dish seems relatively easy enough to tackle, any tips on how everything should be prepped or what type of veggies or rice to use? Seasonings? Sauces?


My recipes never really go off exact measurements too, it's always a "eye ball it and go off your senses, if it smells right, keep on!"

Re: What's on your plate?

The problem with making bibmbop at home is kind of like wanting to build a real nice salad at home - at least for me.  I like lots of veggies but it takes time.  Have you ever had japchae - glass noodles sauteed with beef and veggies

Re: What's on your plate?

NO! But I want some now! I love glass noodles!


Yeah, I can see how it can be time consuming, especially with using everything from cucumber, mushroom, carrots, bean sprouts, meats, cabbage, seaweed and egg. Maybe it'll be a cool dish to make when I'm entertaining guests, I could set up a "Make your own BBB bowl" station and folks could load their rice with whatever they want.


I made miso honey glazed salmon last night so I can have it ready to heat when I get home today...MMMM MMMM!

Re: What's on your plate?

Miso - check..honey-glazed - check..salmon - check..nom nom

Another good group idea is make you own Korean "sushi" - which is all cooked.  That's real easy to do.  Just a lot of chopping that your bf can help with Smiley Happy --> on a different note, where I can find all the available smileys that can be used in BT?

Re: What's on your plate?



I posted a recipe for honey terriyake glazed salmon there, you can always substitute the soy with miso paste! Smiley Happy


You know what, good question about the smiley faces, not sure if there is a key to show what icons put together equal what faces!

Re: What's on your plate?

Judging by your user name, you must really love kimchi! Hehe Those pics got me drooling over here! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Hahah..I do but it's not like I keep it around.  It was just the first thing that popped in my head when I created the name but I suppose I am getting a kimchi reputation here.  swfupload_6497784123516172832.gif

Re: What's on your plate?

This morning it's scrambled eggs (from a local farm) with fresh ground pepper.

Scrambled eggs really is the ultimate rock star breakfast. Easy to make & good for your hair. Smiley Very Happy

Right! If someone messes up scrambled eggs then something is wrong! Smiley Tongue Haha!

Re: What's on your plate?

Now that I know this thread exists, I'll be using it to help keep me on track.  Smiley Very Happy


So far, I've had one slice of French toast with one scrambled egg, one sausage patty, and one slice of bacon.  The egg & sausage went on the toast for a sandwich, the bacon was savored all on its own.

This place is a haven for all things food! Be it healthy or sometimes just super lush! Smiley Tongue


I encourage everyone to post recipes or ask for recipes too if something someone posts catches your eye! I myself have posted a few recipes complete with photos to show steps!


Bacccccccon! I have some in my casserole right now!

Re: What's on your plate?

yesterday I had

honey crunch flakes with 2% milk

fajhita's with all of the awesome Mexican companions


moose tracks ice cream+homemade cookie and boston cream pie yogurt.


LOL talk about a binge! Smiley Happy usually during the week I stick to my favorites like fruit and veg.

OMG, I haven't had Moose Tracks in forever, that was delish when I stumbled on it at the grocery store!

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm currently partaking in an after-work repast of spicy seaweed ramen and an Amber Woodchuck.  Football ran long, I need the boost.  >.<

Re: What's on your plate?

I think that might just be 2 of my favorite things...ramen and cider though I have never had them in a single sitting..

Re: What's on your plate?

Gahhhhh, I'm going to cry! I miss good ramen!


I've yet to find legit ramen at a restaurant other than the ramen houses I visited when I was vacaying in Hawaii. Gosh I miss it so much!

Re: What's on your plate?

Wish I could say this was good ramen!  Trader Joe's had some flavors I hadn't tried yet, but this one's kinda bland.  It's got heat but not a lot of flavor.  And the noodles have a weird kinda texture.


It was almost ramen & vodka, but then I remembered there were still two bottles of Chuck in the fridge, and if I didn't get one now, they'd be gone by tomorrow!  Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Aw, bummer on the ramen quality. Odd noodle texture surely throws it off!


Speaking of noodles, my cousin took me to this pho place a few months back that hands down had the best pho. It's this tiny mobile home converted into a food trailer/restaurant that's family run and it's all homemade. I'm used to pho broth being homemade, but this place even makes their own noodles! OMG! So delicious and you could TASTE the fact their noodles where different. 


I almost grabbed a glass of moscato, but opted for some of Bolthouse Farm's Mocha Cappuccino instead.

Re: What's on your plate?

Sounds like a place I know (haven't been there in forever..maybe I'll go tomorrow).  The best pho, I've found, are in places you'd be scared to enter.  Actually, some of the best food is found in some sketchy surroundings.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mom and pop shops are usually the best! The pho place I mentioned is super tiny and cramped, they only have 3 tables that can sit maybe 4-5 people max and two tables that can sit 1-2 people and man, they crank food out like a machine! I sat down, ordered, and in less than 5 minutes I had a bowl of steaming hot pho!

Re: What's on your plate?

I guess I'm lucky to live in a town with a great selection of Asian restaurants but am excited to hear a new ramen shop is going to be opening up downtown.  Darnit...now I want ramen!
