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? Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

My plans for dinner tonight will be cooking up a baked mac n' cheese bread crumb topped casserole with applewood smoked bacon and broccoli! I have some left over steak cubes that I'll cook up as well.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmm. My type of snack! Even has coconut oil instead of vegetable oils or seed oils like most snacks do!

Re: What's on your plate?

Snackaroons...more like Gimmeawholebagofthem-roons

Re: What's on your plate?

Good thing I didn't have couple bags of these at work. Otherwise, I'd devour them and gain 500 lbs to drown away my sorrow lol Smiley Happy

Doesn't look fancy shmancy, but it's super yummy! Veggies roasted together with some chicken drumsticks.


( Bad lighting, sorry... )

Re: What's on your plate?

Bad lighting does nothing to hide the fact that looks delicious! Is that sweet potato and asparagus I see?

Re: What's on your plate?

Nope, no sweet potatoes. Cauliflower, carrots, asparagus, onion and garlic.

Re: What's on your plate?

Ahhh, okay, looked sort of like sweet potato fries for a second. Either way, yummy yummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

We don't like sweet potatoes, so no sweeties for us. But, I think you can add whatever you like to this mix. I'm thinking about adding some broccoli next time. I don't like it, but I don't like carrots and cauliflower, either. But, this way - everything is so friggin yummy! So, I need to try broccoli this way asap! I just don't know should I add it near the end of the roasting process, or what? Broccoli is done in no time when you cook it, fry it, steam it... on the stove. I wouldn't wanna end up with roasted mashed broccoli... Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Brussel sprouts would work too.


I love making sweet potato fries, add some olive oil, rosemary, sea salt....ohhhhh yum!

Re: What's on your plate?

Ohhh, I love Brussels sprouts. I usually roast them, or fry them, on their own. With some bacon, of course. Smiley Very Happy I was thinking about adding them to this mix, too.

Re: What's on your plate?

Lyravega, you and your bacon! Smiley Wink

So conflicted about the piglet. Should I laugh or not? Hmmmm...... Smiley Very Happy

Chicken and veggies "Lo Mein" tonight. This was ultra mega giga delish! Definitely a keeper. We both loved it. I even didn't mind broccoli ( say waaah?! ), and my hubbz had fun taking photos of me eating that darn thing. Hilarious...

•lard/coconut oil/butter/whatever cooking fat you use
•1/4 cup almonds, chopped
•1/2 cup water chestnuts
•1/4 cup green onion, chopped

•1 tablespoon minced garlic
•2 cups broccoli
•1/2 head of medium-large cabbage, shredded

3.Shred/thinly slice cabbage.
4.Chop almonds, green onion, celery; mince garlic and ginger.
