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:

Today's lunch was chili and cheese nachos along with some fresh baked naan bread with garlic hummus!

 

I think chicken stir-fry is on the menu for tonight!

Re: What's on your plate?

That sounds amazing, lylysa! I am obsessed with hummus! Are you a fan of olives? My favorite hummus is the Sabra Greek Olive hummus. It combines two of my favorite foods - hummus and olives. :smileyvery-happy:

I obsess over the Whole Foods olive bar. It is amazing how a tiny bowl of olives can make me feel full.

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too, TheSocialQuota! I love treating myself to a big container of the olives from the Whole Foods Olive Bar. Yum! :smileyhappy:

No, I'm no olive fan, but my bf is so he takes care of them for me :smileytongue:

 

I ended up pairing brown rice and red quinoa with the stir-fry.

This is what I had last night: Fettuccine noodles, asparagus, and a little sausage, all mixed with olive oil and italian seasoning. It's simple but yummy!DSCN0544.JPG

Re: What's on your plate?

I love asparagus!!! How did you cook those up?

knuevekm

Re: What's on your plate?

I steamed them! Asparagus is me and my man's favorite veggie so I try to put them in a lot of stuff just so he gets more greens! :smileyhappy:

That's so sweet of you! My bf and I take turns cooking and like to incorporate faves into meals too! That way both parties are happy and so are our bellies!

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG steamed asparagus. little bit of salt. *sigh*

Re: What's on your plate?

I knoooow! I had a recipe for asparagus in the oven topped with sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and right before it's done you throw on some mozzarella with crushed pistachios so they crisp up and melt together a bit...soooooo good.

Re: What's on your plate?

It's super simple!

 

Oven to 425, throw some clean spears of asparagus onto the pan, lightly toss some olive oil and distribute. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste/preference, stick in oven, bake for 12-15 mins, about 5 or so minutes before open it up, toss on the cheese and crushed pistachios, close back up to finish baking.

 

I love the variety in textures for it! 

RandeeBT

Re: What's on your plate?

Sounds delicious! I'll let you know after I try it! 

Best,
Randee
