What's on your plate?

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:

How was the cauliflower fried rice, lyravega? I keep seeing recipes for the cauliflower fried rice floating around pinterest and it looks good! 

Best,

Re: What's on your plate?

Randee, it was very good. And that's coming from someone who doesn't even like cauliflower. :smileyhappy: But, I have to say, I like it riced. And, in many different recipes, too.

Re: What's on your plate?

Omg my mouth is watering! I have to start learning from all of you here. Yum!

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

I wish I could feed all my friends who are snowed in some of the soup I made for tonight.

 

This is ham vegetable soup. It has celery root, rutabega, carrot, onion, leek, garlic and garbanzo beans in it. I roasted the root veggies separately from the broth; the broth contained a bone from leftover maple-syrup-glazed spiral ham. Along with the bone, I added some organic apple cider that I needed to use up to add an interesting dimension to the broth. Later I cut the ham off the bone and added the ham pieces with the roasted veggies and cooked beans to the broth. The broth tasted slightly sweet from the cider, so I balanced the sweetness with a splash of vinegar and a touch of liquid smoke.

Brothy ham stew - a perfect meal.  Looks so delicious. 

 

I now feel like having some Pho.

I always feel like having Pho! Let's have a virtual Pho outing! :smileywink:

We must all have a Pho bonding moment.  There is never a wrong time for Pho. 

 

: You sick? - Have Pho

: Celebrating a lottery win? - Blow your money on some Pho

: Lipstick bled into your nose - Pho make it all betta

: Your TF lipstick package got delivered to the wrong address?  -go on...eat some Pho and count to 10.

: You discover Santa is not real?  - Pho will make him real again

: You ask someone to guess your age and they guess 4 years older than you are - toss some %#$#!@** Pho at them and they will see the error of their ways.

 

Disclaimer - don't do any of this.  Except eat it. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Greenchilli, you're right about Pho.

 

BTW, do you like bubble tea?

Re: What's on your plate?

Diva, I grew up on tea, but am not sure I know bubble tea.  Is that Thai tea?

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmm...Pho(echoing DiVWA).  I'm in!
