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:

It's super simple!

 

Oven to 425, throw some clean spears of asparagus onto the pan, lightly toss some olive oil and distribute. Sprinkle on salt and pepper to taste/preference, stick in oven, bake for 12-15 mins, about 5 or so minutes before open it up, toss on the cheese and crushed pistachios, close back up to finish baking.

 

I love the variety in textures for it!

Sounds delicious! I'll let you know after I try it!

Re: What's on your plate?

For breakfast, I am having some strawberries and some dates. I got the strawberries from the Farmer's Market yesterday and they are so delicious! They are really ripe though so I have to finish them today. Not a problem for me :smileywink:. I am not a huge meat eater in the mornings so I am also eating a morningstar patty for a little protein! 

 

For lunch, I'm going to have an apple, a salad with feta cheese and cranberry Vinaigrette and some noodle soup!

 

Not sure what I am having for dinner yet, but I want to make something that incorporates some fresh zucchini, romaine lettuce and pesto sauce I got at the farmer's market...so probably sauteed veggies with a bit of pasta and a salad with the lettuce I bought at the market! Oh and also, I'm going to work on eating the amazing watermelon I bought! I had a little too much fun at the market yesterday :smileytongue:

Per the request of lylysa, I will start doing mine too! :smileyhappy: I, too, drink at least one cup of green tea a day (my cabinet is full of all kinds lol and I'm actually having one right now!) and I try to drink a lot of water. 

 

Today for lunch, I had: 

 

-Tuna Poke over brown rice 

-Half of an avocado 

-Couple strips of daikon 

-Couple strips of cucumber 

 

And I will be heading to the gym after work to do some heavy lifting! Lol 

 

This is such a cute idea! It's like a food journal with the convenience of having it on Beauty Talk. lol 

 

Thanks lylysa! 

 

Cheers! 

Kevin

Whoohoo!!! Yay for joining in, Kevin!

 

I haven't made rice in a while, I need to get back on that since it sounds lovely with your meal!

Re: What's on your plate?

Your lunch sounds amazing, Kevin! If I could eat avocados every single day, I would be a happy girl! :smileyvery-happy:

Re: What's on your plate?

My cousin is like that too, Randee! She's an avocado lover and just sits there on her computer scooping out avocado from its half like it's ice cream in a bowl. Haha!

Re: What's on your plate?

That's amazing! She sounds like my kind of girl!

Re: What's on your plate?

I made this last night and I was pretty proud of myself.

Chicken breast stuffed with broccoli and 4 cheese blend (asiago, parmesan, romano and American) breaded in panko crumbs with adobo, garlic powder, chopped onion, and oregano. Also, scalloped taters from a box, & peas.

Tops of the chickenz got a tad burnt but didn't taste burnt at all (looks worse than it is haha)
