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

I'm convinced this is my very own personal food diary thread. Just for me, myself and I. Smiley Happy Today I had slow-cooked beef meatballs with a cranberry BBQ sauce. I served it over mashed cauliflower ringed by slivered purple kale.

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm here! My cooking skills are pretty much non existent. I am however a huge lover of food. I like drooling over the foods you all make. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Hopefully I can join you soon, @DiVWA ! So we can share this thread. Whaddya say? Willing to share? Smiley Tongue

 

Boy that looks yummy! *droolz*

Re: What's on your plate?

Totally looking forward to you re-joining this thread, @lyravega. It's a ghost town around here! Smiley Wink

Today was an experimental meal which may not appeal to some people here (assuming anyone on BT ventures onto this thread anymore Smiley Wink). I made beef heart. It has a slightly game-y taste but is quite pleasant (tastes better than liver). It's supposed to be served medium rare which is how I served it.

 

I sauteed it and served it on a salad. The salad had dandelion greens, celery bits, thinly sliced red onion, slices of Wagner apple, chopped parsley, roasted pistachios and a sweet tangy dressing. The dressing had roasted walnut oil; some splashes of lemon juice, huckleberry vinegar, coconut vinegar; and a tiny bit of Dijon mustard and bourbon-aged maple syrup. The bitter greens along with the sweet apple and dressing were a refreshing contrast to the beef heart.

Hello! It feels like a while since I posted.

 

Tonight I had broiled NY steak with some carrot "fries," fresh strawberries and whole-grain amaranth.

Last night I had broiled grass-fed lamb chops with mashed parsnips. I needed some parsley or something green to make this plate look prettier but it was tasty nonetheless!

Hello! Last night we had homemade pizza with gluten-free crust. This time I tried adding some pineapple juice to the crust recipe and it turned out really good. Also tried cottage bacon for the first time, which seems to be much better (less fatty) than ham would have been.

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks good!   I like pineapple on my pizza. Keeps everything juicy! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Do you make the crust yourself or just do a premade one? I haven't tried to bake a crust myself yet. I normally buy Udi's brand items. Your pizza looks tasty! Need to grab a snack now haha.

Re: What's on your plate?

Yes I do, @RainbowRae. I've been experimenting with it for some time and have been happy with the latest version. It does require pre-baking. But it seems that adding a touch of juice made it get browner on the edges, which I really like.

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm always on the lookout for new recipes that are pretty simple.  If you ever have any you want to share, I would gladly accept. I just had to remove more things from mine and my child's diet, so now I'm having to cook more from scratch again and find new meals to prepare.

 

When I took my kid to the doctor today, I saw some magazine called "Allergic Living" I think (something like that). I was like, "um I think I need this." I saw several recipes in there, but of course the second I'm getting into it and seeing what all was in there we got called in. I don't know if you've heard of it, but I thought I'd mention it.

Re: What's on your plate?

I PM'd you.

Wow this looks really tasty!

 

Is the Chinese brown garlic sauce spicy?

 

Glad to see you are posting here -- you are inspiring me to post again soon! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

No, it is not.  I did add some red pepper flakes to balance the flavor.  (makes it stronger since it is homemade)

 

Please post!  I cook everyday for the hubs and if it was just me posting I would feel like I am spamming.  lol!  @DiVWA

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks really good too! Is there a meat in this (not that it needs one)?

Re: What's on your plate?

No, no meat.  Simple soup.  The flavor comes from the spices. Onions, garlic and for ground spices it is salt, pepper, turmeric, coriander, cumin and Turkish bay leaves. 

 

(carrots and potatoes, optional)
