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:

My weakness is 7-Layer Dip with all the fixings - cheese, beans, guacomole, salsa and sour cream! Yummy! I have no will power with that stuff!

It was carnitas night #2 yesterday for my bf and I, he made avocado crema which I just love (I've made it and in my eyes it doesn't taste as good compared to when he makes it). He mashes up an avocado, adds in sour cream, salt, pepper, chili powder....DONE! Had that with some multi-grain chips..nom nom!

It is and super simple to make too!

For some reason I've never been super keen on guacamole, but I love avocado combined with sour cream!

I've seen them in Whole Foods AND Target. There is a white bean version but it was weak in comparison to the pinto and black bean ones. Google up Beanitos!

I made the Pioneer Woman's Loaded Nachos the other night for dinner & they were super yummy.  The only thing I added was some amazing corn salsa that they had at my local grocery store. I normally make my own, but I didn't feel like all the chopping so I bought it pre-made with the pico. I did spice it up a little though!

I'm really glad you shared PW with me earlier, Randee!

That corn salsa looks to die for! "Yum!" is definitely a spot on explanation to this photo!

Re: What's on your plate?

I love a good corn salsa.  That's one of my favorite things about Chipotle. :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG, tell me about it! I will sit there and eat it alone if there's extra! Hahaha! 

 

I have trimmings to make carnitas, but I need to pick up lettuce (how in the world did I manage to pick up tomato and avocado this weekend and FORGET the lettuce is beyond me), but now I'm thinking I may have to stop off at Chipotle and tell them to pack up some corn salsa to-go!

BeautyJunkie325

Re: What's on your plate?

I always ask for extra salsa. :smileyhappy:

 

Carnitas sound really good. I may need to make some later this week.

It's movie date night for me later so we'll probably end up with movie food.

 

I need corn salsa in my life right now....thanks! :smileytongue:
