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:

Re: What's on your plate?

There's something soothing about watching this, although there's too much time spent slicing the cheese or tofu or whatever that white stuff was.

Re: What's on your plate?

you should look for the cute pancake video from this channel.. I almost died from cuteness, haha

Re: What's on your plate?

It was the tofu for a miso.

 

Looks like me slicing baby carrots for casserole.

Spoiler
I quarter them and make a little less than qaurter inch pieces. Drives my husband nuts, but I otherwise find the carrot takes too long to chew. Aggravates the TMJ after a while.

Made turkey meatballs the other day, which turned into turkey meatball paninis!

 

The paninis included meatballs, tomato basil sauce, arugula, grilled red onion, provolone and prosciutto on ciabatta bread!

Re: What's on your plate?

I need some good gf paninis in my life right now!

Re: What's on your plate?

Maybe you can find a recipe for meatless meatballs and then try it!

Today for lunch I had a salad consisting of ripe organic diced pear on top of organic broccoli slaw, with roughly cut Spanish salami put on top with a tahini dressing. Broccoli slaw is grated broccoli and carrot. The Spanish salami is a deli package that contains three different Spanish deli meats that's sold at Trader Joe's. The dressing consisted of some organic tahini (to give the dressing creaminess and body), splash of champagne vinegar, and dash of liquid vanilla (to add sweetness to complement the pear).

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum! Rigt down my alley :smileyhappy: How did you make your chip Divwa?

Re: What's on your plate?

Where were you? We made a plate for you! :smileywink:

 

Chip recipe here:

Spoiler

Plantain Chips or “Tortilla” Chips (for nachos or snacking)

 

Ingredients:

2 green plantains

1 to 2 tablespoons ghee, melted

Sea salt

Seasonings, optional (see below)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Space two oven racks about evenly apart. Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

 

Prep the plantains. Cut off both ends of the plantains, then with the tip of a sharp knife, make shallow slits lengthwise along the skin. Use your fingers to pry off the strips. With a mandolin slicer on its thinnest setting, slide the plantains into coins. Use your gloved hands or two wooden spoons to toss the slices in a large bowl with the melted ghee.

 

Assemble and season the plantains. Use six or more coins (or various pieces) to make each “tortilla” or “chip.” Lay them flat on the parchment paper with edges slightly overlapping (while they bake, the natural starches will make the coins or pieces stick together). Sprinkle with sea salt and any other seasonings you want.

 

Bake the plantains. Bake for 15 minutes, and then switch places of the two baking sheets, so what was the sheet on top is now the sheet on the bottom, and vice versa. Bake for an additional 15 minutes, until very crisp and beginning to brown.

 

Remove from the oven and eat now, store or use as nachos. Let cool and then eat now, store in a sealed container or use for nachos. If making into nachos, top with nacho fixings such as thinly sliced greens, thinly sliced red onion, thinly sliced pepperoncini, seasoned ground beef, chopped tomato, chopped ripe avocado, etc.

 

Some suggested (optional) seasonings to use: Smoked paprika (sweet, hot or bittersweet); garlic powder; onion powder; ground cinnamon; lemon pepper; smoked chipotle chili powder; and any others you can think of.

Thx you so much Divwa. I had so much fun snorkeling and forgot time for dinner but I can bring some tropical fruits over (banana and rambutan) :smileyhappy:image.jpg

Re: What's on your plate?

that sounds more fun than cooking and eating!

 

That rambutan looks most intriguing. I have never eaten a rambutan.

Re: What's on your plate?

Rambutan is a popular fruit in Southeast Asia though you can find it in any Hawaii islands. When I did a wiki, they said you can find it now in Honduras and Costa Rica. I haven't been in either place so I can verify that :smileywink: but I can sure you can buy it at any fruit stand in Hawaii. Next time if you and your hubby in Hawaii, please try (just for the heck of it) :smileyhappy: It is sweet and has similar taste to Longan or Lychee.  I took the picture last week when we was in Kauai. I wish I can bring some home to you Divwa :smileyhappy:

Re: What's on your plate?

I hope that my husband and I get to Hawaii again sometime. What a lovely place!
