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

Did a simple ground beef version of shepherd's pie a few nights ago and extra is packed in the freezer. 

Did a ground turkey casserole two nights ago and guess where the extra is. Smiley Tongue

 

Last night my bf and I ordered take out, I got an unagidon which also came with miso soup and a side of seaweed salad:

 

That's not a pic of the one I had but that's what it pretty much looks like if anyone is curious on what an unagidon is. I loooooooove unagi (BBQ eeq) so having pieces upon pieces of that over rice is heavenly!

 

P.S. I know I was missing from BT for a bit, catching up and seeing all the photos here makes me drool nonstop. 

Re: What's on your plate?

I love eel. I normally ordered both salt and fresh water eel when we go for sushi. My mouth is watering now just to think of it. Do you like sashimi? If you do and if you ever go to Hawaii, make sure to try poke. Oh gosh, I have to stop talking about food, make me hungry Smiley Happy

I do love me some sashimi!

 

I remember some of the Mods mentioning poke and sadly when I was in Hawaii I never tried it!

Re: What's on your plate?

I have never had unagidon. But I think I like eel, although it's been a long time since I've eaten it.

Re: What's on your plate?

Unagi is my favorite! It has a smokey, sweet flavor ^_^

For lunch, I had a wild salmon burger on a green salad, which included sliced kale, Italian radicchio, celery leaves, sliced red onion and cherry tomatoes. The salmon burger is from Costco (this is a super yummy salmon burger to get--check the frozen section). I put some Sriracha sauce on top of the salmon burger to add some spiciness to the bitterness of the kale/radicchio. Adding celery leaves to the salad is a trick I learned by watching some show on Food Network--I used to discard these leaves but they're so good (and naturally salty/celery tasting). Before adding the tomatoes and salmon burger, I massaged the salad greens with some lemon-infused olive oil (Trader Joe's).

Salmon enabler!

I went to Costco just for these and had one for lunch today, so delicious, Diva.

Thank you for the head's up, and the smile..

Re: What's on your plate?

I LOVE everything on this plate. 

 

*Stop smiling at me salmon!  I could eat you right now!*

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh I LOVE those salmon burgers!  I have some in my freezer right now Heart

Re: What's on your plate?

Holy cow, I need this salmon burger in my life now....dang it, I just went to Costco this weekend but surpassed the frozen section!!!!!! *kicking myself in butt for not going so I could run into the salmon burgers*

This was a leftover type meal. I had an avocado and some salsa left over from the Super Bowl. So I made some guacamole and served that and the salsa with some broiled wild salmon. The skin on the salmon was crisp enough to eat. I served celery sticks for dipping but forgot that I had bought a cucumber for this. So now I have to incorporate the cucumber into a future lunch or dinner. LOL

 

I was feeling goofy so made a guacamole "snowman."

That is the cutest guacamole snowman! That looks like such a healthy and delicious dinner!

Re: What's on your plate?

So, after looking at photos of all the healthy meals and finally reading completely through the original post, I see that my Christmas cookie tray was totally out of line here. Smiley Very Happy Just tattoo that big "L" on my forehead!

Jozkid, I totally disagree! Whatever the intention of this post, it has morphed into whatever people are eating. And that most definitely means desserts too!

 

I like looking at whatever people are eating. Most definitely cookies. MMMMMMMMMM

Tonight we had broiled seasoned grass-fed leg of lamb steak on a bed of lentil salad and organic sliced arugala leaves.

 

The black-lentil salad had sliced mandarin oranges, sliced red onion, capers, sliced Greek olives and a splash of verjus.

Re: What's on your plate?

I think you need to open a little bistro of your own.

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks Jozkid, but that would take all the fun out of it. Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

It's not just what you're cooking. You go to all the trouble of plating it all fancy, too!

Re: What's on your plate?

Fancy plating is my way of making up for being lousy at housework.

Re: What's on your plate?

Great. I'm lousy at housework and plating!
