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 love the Red Robin fries!! I love also love their Buffalo Chicken Strips. They are almost too spicy for me which kind of makes me love them more!

Oh man. This looks amazing.

Re: What's on your plate?

That is quite carby but looks good. Do you usually eat lower carb?

Breakfast and afternoon snack today (as well as the snack for my drive home from work):

Crunchy peanut butter, oatmeal, banana, and chocolate protein shake (my bf made his batch last night and had extra that wouldn't fit into his blender bottles so I got the remainders in mine)

 

Lunch today:

Salmon, sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper cooked in a pan with garlic butter

Mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy

Steamed broccoli

This is the rest of the grass-fed beef brisket that we got. Today my husband made Texas style barbequed brisket. He grilled this at a low temperature on the BBQ over some hickory wood chips. Very tender and slight smoky flavor.

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh my. I need this in my life.

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh my gosh. This looks AMAZING.

Re: What's on your plate?

I don't know which brisket looks better.  They both look amazing and delicious!

Re: What's on your plate?

That brisket looks like it's trying to escape the pan!

Slow-cooker meal today (no photo, sorry) - Pork Tinga (adapted from Rick Bayless's recipe).

 

Pork butt, chorizo, potatoes, and onions slow-cooked with tomatoes and chipotles in adobo. Topped with cheese and avocado.

 

YUM

Re: What's on your plate?

Slow-cooker meals are so great!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yesterday we had braised carmelized-onion-crusted beef brisket (grass fed) with broccoli and small potatoes. We like everything in one bowl with gravy over the top so excuse the rather informal plating (or "bowling" LOL). First photo shows the brisket straight out of the oven, before the gravy was strained and reduced. Second one shows the nice onion crust (which came off pretty easily when the roast was sliced, but still looked great and was yummy). Third shows final result in the bowl.

Today's dinner... Chicken drumsticks sauteed  braised? ( no idea what's the word for this particular method ) with onion, garlic and smoked bacon. With my old nemesis - broccoli! I've found out this to be the most acceptable way of eating it for me. I fried/sauteed it on some butter, with some garlic, salt and pepper... and, it's almost yummy. ( Friggin delish when you're starving! Smiley Very Happy )

 

Oopsy! The chicken skin is already gone. It had some urgent business in my stomach, so it couldn't wait for the photo shoot.... Sorry 'bout that. Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks yummy. Even without the skin.

 

You're too funny with veggies. When I first started eating broccoli (as a grown teenager) I had to have it with melted cheese on it. I haven't eaten it that way in years. You know your trick for eating broccoli would totally work for kale, right? Smiley Wink
