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?

I eat vegan at home and as close to vegetarian when I am travelling as I can find. Vegan meals are pretty hard to come by in some places, so I have to make do.. That being said, I've had great seafood all this week on vacation as the restaurant that serves the best food specializes in seafood and it's only once a year. I also had french fries with a lot of my meals because this place makes awesome ones! Today when I got home, I went back to vegan, I probably gained a pound or 2 on all that animal protein on my trip. Eating vegan/vegetarian helps me maintain my weight, even as I am getting older. Plus I can eat as much as I want of vegetables and vegetable protein and I do have an appetite!

You should definitely look up the shiritaki noodles I was talking about in a couple of posts below! They're made with yam flour (traditionally, but some varieties are made with tofu) and are next to nothing int he calorie department! It's perfect to still get your noodle fix without loading up on carbs!

Re: What's on your plate?

Started by finishing up leftovers, last little bowl of black bean pumpkin soup and wilting spring mix, then the egg salad I made (got expired mustard, just add honey, mayo, salt. Then combine with chopped hardboiled eggs, cubed potato, and sliced carrot/cucumber/onion).


Lured my noisy downstair neighbors into shoveling my car out of the 3ft of snow with oreos and last couple sliceds of banana bread with caramel walnuts. Since my Indian neighbor was cooking when I went to borrow a shovel and I gushed shamelessly about how it smells so delicious every time I pass her door, she gave me some tasty Indian food: veggie stuff wrapped in thin pancakes, spicy fish/shrimp/spinach, donut balls soaked in rosewater.

Yum! It's always nice to make nice with the neighbors!

Re: What's on your plate?

Last night, my mom fixed something quick because the washing machine is acting up.  As a result, I had to catch a couple of kitties and take them to the extra bedroom so they wouldn't get in the way.  


Mom, dad, Lanndan, and I had chicken tenders (no breading) and taters fixed in the skillet.  Although I am an English major, I still use southern slang around friends and family lol.


This morning, I ate a couple of gluten free waffles before my commute to campus.  Now, I'm enjoying a tall Starbucks house blend coffee with a shot of vanilla.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Taters are the yum!!! How did you season them?

Re: What's on your plate?

With summer and pool season on its way, my plate got a wole lot lighter lately.  Andi am forcing myself to drink more watefeel when I drink water on a regular basis, it just makes y face "feel" that much better and clearer.  I just have an addiction to Coke Zero....I need an intervention.  


Anybody out there have foods they eat to help with cellulite Or the appearance of?  As I get older, it's becoming soooomuch harder to lose and keep fit.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Dear Makeupobsessed,


We love you, please put the Coke Zero down and back away. How about some nice, crisp water instead? Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Best thing of all: most Mexican food is gluten free!
