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:

Looks really yummy! I'm always looking for lighter but really tasty things post-workout too.

Since it is such a cool fall day here in OH, I made a delicious beef stew for dinner. Mmmmmmm image.jpg

LOVE that it's giant chunks of potatoes!

Re: What's on your plate?

If I'm having stew I want potatoes I can see. A friend makes it with potatoes and carrots cut into little cubes. I can't tell what I'm eating.

Tiny cubes are best left for pot pies or stir-frys!

 

If it's a soup or stew.....MOAAAR BIGGERRR CHUNKSSS!!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

I know!!!  I can't wait for my dad's first batch of vegetable soup.  It has every vegetable I can think of - corn, green beans, Lima beans, carrots, parsnips, broccoli, tomatoes, kohlrabi, cabbage, okra, celery, peas, potatoes, onions, leeks and any other vegetable that catches our eye. Mmmmmmm.

Oooooo nice, what's funny is that I'm still a touch picky on veggies, but I love them in soups!

BeautyJunkie325

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too, I wouldn't eat some of those veggies any other way.  :smileyhappy:

What type of meat/cut of meat did you use for the stew?

BeautyJunkie325

Re: What's on your plate?

I took the easy way out and picked up pre cut stew meat.  Normally I buy a bottom round roast and cut it down.  I browned the meat and cooked it with a can of tomatoes and covered the meat with beef stock for like 4 1/2 hrs before I added anything else. the meat totally fell apart when it was done.

Re: What's on your plate?

Precut stew meat makes those lazy meal days even better :smileyhappy:

 

Tenderrrrr!

Midnight snack: cold roast beef, broccoli slaw and Brie. Maybe a fig or 2. I need to quit eating so late! :smileywink:

Re: What's on your plate?

today for breakfast I had a bowl of 2% reduced fat milk, for lunch I had a half onion and cheese/ham bagel with a side salad and a slice of cherry cake and later on in the day I had ten of my favorite wheat crackers! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

So, poptart for lunch sounded like a good idea until 6 poptarts later and now I've got a headache and feel sleepy from sugar overdose.....#SoundsLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime........

mimibel

Re: What's on your plate?

1 box, 1 serving, or close enough I fail to see problem here :smileywink: It's smaller than your head so you are technically under the radar.

Enjoy them for me, I can't eat wheat anymore and of everything, those are one odd thing of a handful that I miss occasionally.

Re: What's on your plate?

@ Mimibel, that midnight snack sounds good enough to be a snack whenever!!!!! Mmmm!
