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:

Dinner last night/lunch today:

 

Chicken roll ups

Broccoli

Whipped garlic mashed potatoes

 

Chicken roll up recipe:

 

-1 10 oz can of condensed Cream of Chicken soup

-1/2 milk

-1/2 cheese (shredded, of your choice, if you want more, feel free for you cheese fanatics)

-1 pack of 8 cresent rolls

-Chicken breast (about 6-8 oz. per pack of cresent rolls)

-Salt, pepper, seasonings of choice

 

1. Preheat oven to 350

2. Cook and shred up chicken breasts, set aside

3. Mix soup, milk, cheese together until smooth, season to taste per your liking (I used a touch of lemon pepper, onion powder, salt, pepper this time around)

4. Spoon portion of mix into bake pan (I used a glass 13x9, actually made double this recipe in that size, you have a 8x8 or 9x9 it can work for a single pack of cresent rolls) until base is covered lightly with soup mixture

5. Take each cresent roll piece, add chicken, a spoon of soup mix, roll up, and place in pan, repeat for all

6. Spoon/pour additional soup mix over rolls, top with a sprinkle more of cheese if wanted

7. Bake for 30 minutes (mix should slightly bubble), remove from oven, let cool a bit, serve and enjoy!

I already started dinner.  It's Thursday which means pasta night and the whole family will be over.  I'm slow braising country pork ribs for the sauce in the crockpot so I can skim it and add the rest of the ingredients this afternoon and make the garlic bread before they start piling in the door.

That's so wonderful you have a family pasta night!


What all goes into your pork ribs? I would ask you to snap a pic to share with all of us hungry mouths here, but with everyone piling at the door I'm sure the food will be gone before you can even grab a camera! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

 

Since it was a little cold today, I decided it was the perfect day for chili.  Of course I had to send a pic to my bestie (my chili is her favorite) who was not too happy with me. I had to promise a batch the next time I visit.

Re: What's on your plate?

This post popped up and I perused the first 6 pages.  Oh my God- your salads look amazing!  I've been a vegetarian for 21 years, so I could leave the meat out, but where do you get all your ideas?!!  I just want to scarf all these up and I bet they are really healthy too!

Re: What's on your plate?

<3 I hope they inspired you! I really love pretty salads with all kinds of mixed greens and crispy veggies so I just look at what's fresh in the store (Walmart, mostly though I shop some veggies and fruits at an Asian Grocery) and some good ideas pop up on the net like the black truffle oil and adding nuts came from (I think) Martha Stewart. Deff using Herbes de Provence did. And I'm an avocado freak. :smileywink: only rule for my eating is they have to stay pretty low carb.

Homemade wonton noodles soup (I haven't added the broth yet in this picture). It took 4+ hours to do everything but it was sooo worth it.

 

I've been trying to cook in instead of eating out and I gotta say, it's not as bad as I thought it would be

#1...can you share the taco casserole recipe????

 

And #2....what all is in the crepe??? I've had some Korean seafood versions but I want to compare because they look a touch similar!

[ Edited ]

just had a huge bowl of homemade lentil soup (with tons of carrots, spinach and tomato) and a talt (tempeh 'bacon', avocado, lettuce, tomato) sandwich on freshly made grain bread.  am stuffed.  will be munching on a beautiful bartlett pear for dessert. sipping on some pan-fired green tea with a couple jasmine pearls right now.

 

going vegan was, for me, a necessity for my overall health.  but i've noticed benefits to my skin as well.

 

any other vegan bt-ers?

Re: What's on your plate?

dinner was multi-grain mushroom porridge with kimchi, seaoned green onion, sautéed spinach and sweet pickled radish, and a greens smoothie (apple, mango, pineapple, coconut, ginger, lime, cucumber and lots of spinach) for dessert! new year's goals implemented a bit early.  stuffed.

 

love pickles... great probiotic!  and smoothies are a fabu way to get in lots of fruit and veg.

Re: What's on your plate?

Why is it sometimes its the little things that taste so amazing.  Today for lunch I made a roast beef & Swiss with lettuce and tomato on fresh asiago cheese bread. With my sandwich I had chopped pineapple, sliced mango and mandarin orange segments. I was soooo very happy.  It kind of reminded me of my favorite lunch spot in Houston - Brown Bag Deli - mmmmmm.
