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 threw some chicken in the crock pot, poured a bottle of thai peanut sauce over it and a bit of peanut butter, then added some edamame, leeks, water chestnuts and broccoli slaw at the end and served it over chow mein noodles. soo good :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Peanut noodles are delish, and with the crock pot I'm sure all the rich flavor simmered in even more to the meat and veggies!

Re: What's on your plate?

it was SO good! next time i'll add less sauce to it, but other than that it was a very successful experiment! 

lylysa

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooooo, and you can roast/toast the edamame too and use that to top off the dish when you serve it up for some crunch!

jaimelove

Re: What's on your plate?

that's a great idea!

@Jaimelove- I've been making a lot of crock pot recipes lately; I'll have to try this!  :smileyhappy: -Laura

Re: What's on your plate?

i was pretty impressed, especially considering it wasn't a recipe... just something i randomly threw together! if you have a trader joe's nearby i recommend using their thai peanut salad dressing :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Yummy.

I'm having one of my "inventions" 

Tofu makes everything better!

I'm vegan, so I have to be creative and bold.

Rice + tofu + whatever's lying around.

it's good! Not fancy, but that's me.

Doesn't look as good as pizza though!

You'll have to share some tofu recipes with us! My friend makes the best General Tso's Tofu! :smileyhappy: It's an all day ordeal so when he makes it, it's a BIG deal!

I should probably feel ashamed of this one, but it was soooo tasty!  Pizza bites with hummus.  :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?
