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? ๐Ÿ˜„

Re: What's on your plate?

Iโ€™ve been feeling veggie deprived so I made up veggie rolls.  Very easy recipe using rice paper, shredded cabbage, butter lettuce. Carrots red peppers, cucumber, cilantro mint and chives with jalapeรฑo pepper.  

Iโ€™m foregoing the traditional peanut sauce and will be using basil infused olive oil and mango vinegar as the dip.  



The drink is Starbucks Holiday blend coffee with almond nog.  

Re: What's on your plate?

@heartsmyface Oh my goodness, YUM! I love a good veggie roll. ๐Ÿ˜ The dip sounds like a fantastic blend to further bring out the flavors of all those delicious veggies would probably make a lovely salad dressing as well. I'll have to give that mix a go sometime. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@heartsmyface those look delicious 

Re: What's on your plate?

Itโ€™s like a salad but not a salad @heartsmyface! All those veggies sound so good and omg, that dressing sounds amazing!! ๐Ÿ˜ I love anything with basil in it so that olive oil Iโ€™m sure is wonderful. Mango vinegar? Thatโ€™s the first Iโ€™ve heard of that pairing but Iโ€™m intrigued. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@itsfi @Oh yes!!!   The shop sells so many unique infused oils and vinegars.  Basil lover are you?  Noted;) 

Re: What's on your plate?

I've been craving some homemade pizza all month, but it's such a process that I only make it a few times a year. I do this in large batches to freeze my leftover dough + sauce and pop in the fridge overnight for a quick, delicious meal the next day. ๐Ÿ• I decided to finally put the time and back breaking work in earlier this week. The dough is meant to create crispy pockets/"air bubbles", however the full process takes about a day and a half to fully be ready and my patience was truly wearing thin during this waiting period, not going to lie ๐Ÿคฃ BUT we made it through and I finally got my homemade take on Margherita pizza last night (and enough frozen dough to make 5 more large pizzas in the future). ๐Ÿค—


Here's some pictures I grabbed of the process, during the few times my hands weren't too dirty to take a photo ๐Ÿคฃ



The homemade pizza sauce (in the process of cooking/thickening up). Admittedly, we go a little overboard on the veg, spices and aromatics for some people's liking, but I got this recipe from an old family friend ages ago and the only thing I've changed is slightly adjusting (upping) the measurement of the aromatics to our preferences. This is a slightly thicker but much more flavorful pizza sauce in comparison to some of the other recipes I've tried throughout the years, but I think it pairs perfectly with the simplicity of the toppings in a Margherita-style pizza, so I decided to go with this particular recipe this time around.



I can't stretch pizza dough to save my life, despite being the one to make it. Luckily for me my S/O used to work at a pizza shop in his teenage days and retained a thing or two (at least enough to get some dough that resembles a pizza on the pan, which is way above my skillset ๐Ÿคฃ).



And here is the finished product right after coming out of the oven, I brushed the crust over with a garlic-parm butter. This definitely hit the spot! ๐Ÿ•โค๏ธ 

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmmโ€ฆ. Pizza!!! This looks amazing @QueenMarceline! Itโ€™s almost too good looking to eat. Almost!!! Gotta dig into that gooey cheese. Nom, nom, nom!

Re: What's on your plate?

@itsfi Haha, keyword: almost๐Ÿคฃ Thank you so much! Maybe next time I'll do different toppings and sauce to switch things up ๐Ÿ™‚ Nom nom!

Re: What's on your plate?

@QueenMarceline @That looks soooooo good!!!!  Those crust bubbles especially!!!  

Re: What's on your plate?

@heartsmyface Thanks so much, those are actually my favorite part ๐Ÿคคโค๏ธ

Re: What's on your plate?

@QueenMarceline  wow, that looks absolutely scrumptious! How impressive that you made it from scratch!

Re: What's on your plate?

@caitbird Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Re: What's on your plate?

The way your cheese melted and the crispy crust ๐Ÿคฉ I can almost smell how good this must have been. @QueenMarceline. These are perfect pictures of your prep and final masterpiece. ๐Ÿ•


Re: What's on your plate?

@CynthieLu Thank you so much! ๐Ÿค— I've already thought about popping some dough out of the freezer for the weekend, but I feel like its too soon. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: What's on your plate?

I wouldn't blame you, lol. It's sure to be delicious ๐Ÿ˜‰ @QueenMarceline 

Re: What's on your plate?

@QueenMarceline Uhhh...are we invited for leftovers? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1 Oh my gosh, yes! โค๏ธ๐Ÿ•

Re: What's on your plate?

@QueenMarceline Absolutely amazing! That looks like it came out of a restaurant in Italy (not even kidding!) I canโ€™t believe you made the sauce and dough from scratch. That must have been delicious. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•

Re: What's on your plate?

@JoSometimes Awww, thank you sweet Jo! You're too kind! Honestly I can't believe it either, it happens more very rarely these days. ๐Ÿคฃ

Re: What's on your plate?

@QueenMarceline that looks like a pizza I had in Florence.  Enjoy!
