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

Yummy! I love moussaka!

Me too, it doesn't exist here in the south that I have seen.

Tonight we had cube steak with mushrooms and broccoli.

 

Cube steak sort of bores me so I made a crust for it (kind of like chicken fried steak). Steak was dipped in a mix of bold A-1 sauce and coconut milk, then dipped in ground seasoned pork rinds, cashew meal and flaxseed. The steak was sauteed in butter and olive oil with the mushrooms and served on a sauce of bold A-1 sauce mixed with sugar-free orange marmalade and sugar-free BBQ sauce. I drizzled some roasted pistachio oil on top of the steamed broccoli.

That looks delicious, DiVWA! It's like a healthier version of Chicken Fried Steak which is seriously one of my favorite dishes. I only have it like once a year though because I have to watch my red meat intake. So yummy though!

Keep the broccoli, but I'd gladly clean out the rest of it! Yum!

My mouth is drooling Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

My dream is that one day we will have a huge BT potluck style dinner party with makeovers and live trading with everyone just looking fab and the most delicious, healthiest food being eaten!

Re: What's on your plate?

I will bring wine.

Re: What's on your plate?

If you'll have the wine, then I want a seat next to you! Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Done!

Re: What's on your plate?

There should be a huge weekend event where one day we all go shop our hearts out and enable each other to the max capacity and the second day is where we have the potluck and get to do make overs and play with all our new goodies from the shopping day before!

Re: What's on your plate?

(0) Hearts

YES

Re: What's on your plate?

And music!

 

I'M IN!!!

 

What would everybody bring?

Re: What's on your plate?

I think this would be great! An evening of playing with makeup, eating, and listening to good music! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

I agree with 80% of these declarations. Guess. Which. Ones.

The healthy part? I had to throw that in because I know many BTers are vegans and a lot like to just watch what they eat, but we can totally have unhealthy food as well Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

This is all the love, Malday knows. No sweet is healthy unless we're talking fruit. And mama taught me to shower the sugar on the ones I love. Then they can't run very far.

Guess: healthiest = the 20%? Or having to bring a dish to potluck?

Re: What's on your plate?

This sounds amazing. Count me in!

I hosted my birthday party on Sunday for my family (aunts and uncles, etc), and I had intended to take photos of everything. Unfortunately that didn't happen because I was so busy and stressed and when I finally finished, I was so hungry that I completely spaced the photo-taking. By the time that I remembered, everything was picked over and not so pretty anymore. So I will list what I made:

 

Finger tea sandwiches

-egg salad with butter lettuce

-salmon lox with ginger & scallion cream cheese

-avocado with cucumber & fresh mint

Black currant & vanilla bean scones

Strawberry & banana fruit salad

Lemon cream layer cake - my favorite cake; I have perfected this recipe and my family is always requesting it for their birthdays too... It is made with a doctored Betty Crocker cake mix, the frosting is cream cheese and powdered sugar and whipped cream with fresh lemon juice and zest, and it is coated in vanilla crumb topping. Rather labor-intensive, but so very rewarding.

 

The only thing I managed to do was take a snapshot of my leftover cake slice that I took home (how tragic).
