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?

Guilty as charged! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Not even mad about it or made to feel guilty.

 

Time to indulge. 

 

Those have been my treat as of late....the pretzels are thinner/flatter so they don't feel so bulky.

 

 

These too....I've been hitting up Costco non-stop. The pumpkin seed treat is a bit more hearty so a good sized piece is all I need, but those pretzels.....good gawd, I could sit there with the bag and snack and snack. DANGEROUS!!!! Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

... and this for breakfast dessert!

Re: What's on your plate?

Evil temptress...with your food of Satan.

I've already picked out which ones I want...basically everything but the marshmellows. 

Re: What's on your plate?

I want the big honking one with all the chocolate shavings... because there is NO such thing as too much chocolate!

Re: What's on your plate?

Hahaha! They were delicious. I actually got the only two non chocolate ones in the box. The one with the marshmallows is called the "S'morrissey" by the way Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Today I got me going a raw kale salad--but the kale has been massaged with cashew & olive oil dressing so it's nice and soft and not prickly the way kale can be. So, kale, cashew dressing with whole cashews and cucumbers and a sprinkling of cayenne pepper. It's so good !!

Last night was bacon cheeseburger casserole with mushroom chunks. It's like a grown up version of Hamburger Helper. Smiley Very Happy

 

In other news, I believe we all channel this meme when we see all the images posted here and read all the food posts:

A lil' experiment. Made lasagna with egg white crepes cut into lasagna "noodles", instead of the real deal noodles. I was a bit skeptical about it... But, actually, it was really good! And, that's coming from someone who only like lasagna with the real deal lasagna noodles. Smiley Happy ( Once in a while I try to find an acceptable low/er carb version of noodles. I've tried zucchinis once before. That was terrible. And, after that - eggplant. That was even worse. But, this version is great! Yaaay! Smiley Happy )

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooooooooooohhhh, recipe??? I love eggs with anything haha.

I made lasagna the way I always make it - meat "filling/sauce", ricotta cheese, mozzarella, parmesan...

 

As for the egg white crepes, I whisked 8 egg whites with 1 tablespoon of milk. Heated a 10 inch skillet over medium heat, coated it lightly with some coconut oil. Added just enough egg mixture to coat the pan in a very thin layer, about 1/4 ( or less ) of a cup. Covered the skillet with a lid and cooked it for about a minute. You can usually just dump the crepe right out onto a plate, but you might need to use a rubber spatula to help get it out of the pan. Cut them into noodles when they cool down. And, that's it. Smiley Happy
