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

Re: What's on your plate?

This evening I fixed veggie sausage browned and sautéed with a 3 pepper, onion blend. Spanish saffron tagliatelle and polenta with a creamy sauce. The tagliatelle was overkill, but I really wanted to try them! I also fixed a baby arugula salad with sliced Asian pears, blue cheese crumbles and sliced almonds topped with a light garlic dressing.

Last night I made soy glazed tofu and carrots with brown jasmine rice!


Anyway, I came here to post this pancake recipe I got online, would anyone care to experiment and get back to me with results??


"It’s time to treat yourself to the good stuff, babe. I’ve got a recipe for the perfect pancakes – I think you’re going to flip out (see what I did there?). And make note that that they’re gluten free and refined sugar free. Just not vegan, sorry chicks. (See what I also did there?)


What you’ll need:

1 cup of milk*

4 eggs

2 teaspoons of vanilla extract

½ cup of coconut flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 tablespoon of honey

Pinch of sea salt

Coconut oil or butter (for frying)


*Substitute ingredients: cow’s milk, coconut milk or almond milk work well.



Make your wet mixture: whisk milk, eggs, vanilla and honey together. In a separate bowl combine flour and baking soda, add in the salt. Make a well in the centre and pour in the wet mixture – stir together until it’s a smooth consistency. ‘Hurrah!’ You haven’t made a mess. Eat some congratulatory batter.


Batter up – you’re ready to bake, babe. Over medium heat, use a large non-stick frying pan and brush with oil or butter. Pour a small portion of batter onto the pan, once you see little bubbles appear – flip them over. It will take a few minutes to cook on either side. If you actually manage to master the flip – take a selfie. Instagram should probably know about this, right?



It’s time to enjoy your fluffy stacks of goodness. Serve with fresh berries, banana, lemon juice, or maple syrup. Eat up babe, it’s heaven on a plate."

Ooooo, if only I had coconut flower!


Your dinner sounds amazing! I did tuna and asparagus skillet casserole last night. Pho for lunch!

Re: What's on your plate?

I have no coconut flour either.

I might need to buy a small bag for the heck of it.

For awhile, my goal was to find the perfect pancake recipe, then I realized I was eating too many pancakes. ha ha

Time to start again....

Re: What's on your plate?

Hahaha. I actually don't really like pancakes so when I do make them I usually use other people as my guinea pigs.

Re: What's on your plate?

I just bought some last night! Luckily the recipe only calls for 1/2 cup because that little bag was pricey haha.

Amazon sells four packs for pretty cheap of BRM.

Ah, perfect. I may buy some more if my experiment works out well haha.

Re: What's on your plate?

For today's lunch I made Custom designed Pizzas



Pac Man for my 6yr old son , Star for my 10yr old daughter, heart for 3yr old daughter and Hexagon for my Husband Smiley Very Happy . Since the only molds left behind were boring Squares and rectangles so I rather make a Round XL pizza for myself and for anyone else who want extra bites after finishing their own.

Re: What's on your plate?

These are too cute! What a great idea, fatimamummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

You'll have to make two more next time for me and lylysa.

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

Dinner last night:


Paired with corn tortillas, lettuce, tomato, Monterrey Jack cheese, and avocado crema (mash 1 ripe avocado with 1 or 2 generous spoonfuls of sour cream, some salt and pepper to taste, can add in lime juice, lemon pepper, and chili powder if wanted).



Re: What's on your plate?

Dinner date tonight - south American food.  It is going to be another Turf 'n Turf night.  Like veery good night should be......



Re: What's on your plate?

Only fitting:

Re: What's on your plate?


Grilled marinated flank steak with chimichurri sauce and Quinoa. Oh and a slice of chicken breast. Grilled veggies not in pic. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks so good.

I love how you included the chicken breast into the party...

Perfect balance.

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks, it was delish Smiley Very Happy The sauce made the plate.

I love the fresh smell you get when you are chopping all the parsley.

Re: What's on your plate?

Fresh herbs is such a beautiful aroma! Even freshly cut garlic! I relish every time I make garlic butter and my kitchen just fills up with the scent!

Re: What's on your plate?

I made spaghetti yesterday so that's what will be for dinner tonight, as well.

It was delicious..but sadly, I ate all of the bread before dinner came around so I might need to get some today because if I'm going to be bad, I might as well be very bad..

San Marzano tomatoes definitely make a difference.

They are the best.

Super quick recipe



Dice an onion (I used yellow)

Grate/Mince garlic (I used to big cloves, grated them because I'm lazy and its pretty efficient)

-set aside-

Brown the meat (we had lean but fatty is great; I like to salt the pan first to crisp up the edges, then I'll add olive oil, if it needs it and will pepper before I dump it in with the onions)

Heat big pot, add olive oil, onions and after a couple of minutes the garlic

Add meat once done, cover with lid for a few minutes

Add canned tomatoes (San Marzano if you've got them)

Cook the sausages; I used both Mild and Hot Italian sausages but I cooked them separately so the hot didn't get all over the mild.

Add those to the sauce, then tomato paste; cover

I ended up using water to clean out the tomato cans; it all depends on how thick you want your sauce

A little wine, let it cook off

The longer it sits, the better.

I think it was about 6 hours of simmering before we ate

I'm really looking forward to leftovers tonight..
