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:

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you, DiVWA! :3 It's quite an easy recipe although time consuming. I would be happy to share my recipe for those whom I cannot bake one for.

Re: What's on your plate?

Salmon again tonight, but I broiled it with a sauce to keep it interesting. (We try to eat salmon once or twice a week.)

 

The sauce was put on the salmon and onion slice and contained sugar-free orange marmalade, coconut aminos, olive oil, fennel pollen, and ground coriander. The salmon was broiled skin side up so the healthy Omega 3 fat would melt down into the fillet; the skin was crispy and yummy.

 

To complement the slightly sweet sauce, I put ground vanilla on the banana slices.


I drizzled some roasted hazelnut oil on the romanseco (which is a cross between cauliflower and broccoli).

Tonight...

 

Homemade chicken broth with rice farina+oat bran dumplings ( gluten free re-creation of my mom's wheat semolina dumplings that I absolutely love, and so friggin much!... and miss dearly... Darn you gluten! Why you hate me so much?! ). I like to add some chicken liver into these dumplings when I have some on hand. That makes the dumplings even more yummy.

Ooo ooo ooo, please do share once you find the recipe!

Re: What's on your plate?

Does it have a slight green tint to it, or is that my monitor? I'm sure it was good..

Re: What's on your plate?

[ Edited ]

I don't remember it having green tint to it... Maybe it's just lighting, photos, who knows what... But, then... It was some time ago, and I don't really remember such details, so I can't really confirm anything...  I'll let you know after I make it again. Why you ask? You no like lil green sumtin sumtin in your chocolate? :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

Homemade shrimp pad thai. Made a few substitutes (macadamia nuts for peanuts, sunflower sprouts instead of bean sprouts).

That looks seriously delicious! It looks like it's straight from an Asian restaurant. Nice presentation!

Google "Domestic Man pad thai." Should be the very first recipe. :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks awesome!

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks! :smileyhappy:

 

I didn't soak the rice noodles long enough, so they were a little firm, but the flavor was great.

Re: What's on your plate?

Should not have browsed this thread during lunch hour. >_<

Re: What's on your plate?

 

It was raining today so naturally I needed an entire flight of ice cream. 

 

From L to R:

Black Olive Brittle & Goat Cheese

Avocado & Strawberry Sherbet

Almond Brittle with Chocolate Ganache

Stumptown Coffee & Compartes Love Nuts

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm totally up for trying all new foods once, so even though I'm a little skeptical of how the first one would taste, I would totally try it. I actually really like olives and goat cheese, so...hm. Does it taste savory, in a way?

Re: What's on your plate?

I wasn't sure what to expect from the first one but it was the best of the flavors I tried. It has a savory quality to it but it's definitely a dessert. I'm having a really hard time finding the words to describe it. It's not overwhelmingly sweet and it still has that tang from the goat cheese. I feel like it's one of those things you just have to try.

Re: What's on your plate?

Olives and cheese are two of my favorite things! Where did you acquire these savory ice creams? They look intriguing! 

Best,
Randee
