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

Tonight we had homemade pizza. Crust is gluten-free and made first. Sauce is made the same time the toppings are prepared. First photo is of 2/3 of the pizza and second one is a slice after someone took a bite out of it.

Tonight I had leftover beef brisket. It needed a sauce so I made one up by doctoring some sugarless BBQ sauce: I added some low-sugar grape jam from TJ's, splash of sugar-free cranberry juice, about a teaspoon of Huy Fong Foods chili garlic sauce, and a dash of orange bitters. I heated this sauce then removed from the stove and added a dollop of organic tahini (to make it a bit creamy). I then mashed up some steamed organic cauliflower and added some ghee and splash of coconut milk--tastes similar to mashed potatoes. I put some slivered kale around the edges and scooped a big spoonful of sauce on top of the cauliflower. This is the result:

This might be a perfect meal right here.  I love brisket so much....and cauliflower.

Re: What's on your plate?

Today I had salad for lunch. (Is this a surprise?) Normally I'd have leftover beef brisket for my protein, but we're having that for dinner. So instead I used a can of the pink wild salmon (the one that comes in a multi-pack from Costco). Other ingredients (organic unless noted): slivered kale greens, chopped cilantro (put both of these in bowl first and then massage with some good EVOO to break down the greens), chopped cucumber, sliced yellow carrot, sliced red onion, sliced mushrooms (briefly steamed in some veggie broth), and Sweet Sapphire black grapes. OMG, these grapes are like pinky-sized oblong things.... yum!

I'm sitting in a hotel working.  So I came to look at Diva's yum food to keep me company.

 

I finally go home in two days, after 10 days!  First thing I will do is buy some BBQ. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Those grapes are giant Diwva. I will make this for sure. Look so yummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

So with all the taco and Mexican food talk that occured in BT recently this weekend my bf and I went out and I got shrimp and crab enchilladas with avocado and cheese cream sauce plus cilantro rice. We also got an order of ceviche and the serving was HUGE!!!! That alone could have been an appetizer for at least 6 people so we hardly put a dent in it, but it made a great snack for the next day.

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

My tacos posting led me here!

 

For Lunch today (because I am allowed carbs today) I went to Red Robin and had their Crispy Chicken Burger with Garlic Parmesan fries. I was very carb happy afterwards.
