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?

wow, everyone here has such good eating habits, i find this thread a bit intimidating, lol.

 

I'm eating potato chips right now....when work stresses me out that's what happens....

Re: What's on your plate?

No need to be intimidated at all! This isn't a place to judge, it's just to share and maybe even learn about new products or even recipes!

 

I wish I had some chips right about now, I love BBQ or blue corn chips. Yum yum! My friend showed me an awesome recipe of baking chicken dipped in egg (just egg whites if you want to be more lean) and rolling the pieces in crushed BBQ potato chips then baking them in the oven. This gives a nice crunchy texture without having to fry anything and you can serve them with various dipping sauces.

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm more into Doritos and peanut M&Ms than potato chips, I usually grab them for my 6-9pm meetings/classes.

 

Haha, eating healthy occasionally makes me feel less guilty about snowed in days like today, spicy ramen and oreos (without milk, so that's healthy, right?).

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha, better add that milk for calcium, boom, back to healthy! Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

Interesting topic!  For breakfast this morning, I had a couple of gluten free waffles.  For lunch later today, I brought one of my gluten free noodle bowls. For supper, I think my family will be having leftover roast and potatoes (or taters as we always say around here lol).

 

Back in November, my dad and neighbor took a couple of steers to the meat packing place.  Since the steers were raised here, we know what they've been fed and whatnot.  And it is the best meat ever!  I never want meat from the grocery store again.  Before the steers were hauled, my dad had to get a bigger freezer for his share of the meat.  As Jase Robertson from Duck Dynasty says: "Meat from the grocery store scares me." lol.

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooooo, I bet it's super tender!

 

Roast and taters sound so good right now! It's got a tad bit chilly here again (for the week at least Smiley Tongue) so having a good ol' bowl of stew sounds perfect!

Re: What's on your plate?

It was!  And probably healthier. The hormones and stuff some people give their cattle affects the test.  We only have cattle here, but I think we need to add in some pigs and chickens lol.  Homemade sausage is really good, too.  A family friend raises pigs and makes his own sausage, but he makes it spicy more for my dad.  I'm not much for super spicy lol.

 

I know different area of the US have different traditions of what fresh meats they eat and whatnot.  For example, when I watch Duck Dynasty, they have meals that I have never tried lol.  What wild game have you all tried?

 

I've had deer meat fixed a couple of different ways, and I've had dove during dove season.  Dove is really good, but not a lot of meat.  You better have a few good hunters to go hunt lol.

 

Also, I do not mean to offend anyone, if you're not for hunting or anything.  

Re: What's on your plate?

I've had homemade sausage (deer and pork) and it's delicious, you can definitely tell fresh, homemade versions from store bought.

 

I've never had dove, but I've tried quail and duck tends to be a regular at some family dinners (Pei-King duck, it's skin is slightly crispy and we cut thin slices and make little sandwiches in buns with green onion, cucumber, and sauce).

 

My boyfriend's family is into hunting so whenever we're back in his home town if they have anything prepared they send us back with it. We got deer meat tamales last time but my b/f's freezer shorted out and we didn't know so we had to toss them out. Smiley Sad

Re: What's on your plate?

Back again! Not going to lie, I've been slacking on cooking lately and have been hitting up restaurants for crawfish and crab legs, sushi, and giant burritos (spinach tortilla loaded with cilantro rice, roasted corn, sour cream, and grilled chicken).

 

Last night I got back into the swing of things with cooking:

Got some steamed broccoli, beef and mushroom stir-fry, and oven-roasted potato wedges!

 

The recipe for the wedges are super easy!

 

Ingredients:

 

-Red potatoes (I normally buy a bag of them, use them for wedges, home fries, and mashed potatoes), in this case I used 5 of them

-Olive oil

-Chili powder

-Onion powder

-Fresh ground pepper

-Coarse sea salt

-Rosemary (I like to grind it up in my palms to release the flavor more and to where it's smaller pieces)

 

1. Preheat the oven at 425 degrees.

2. Chop up the washed potatoes into wedges and toss them on a baking sheet.

3. Drizzle wedges with olive oil and give them a good mix, coating all pieces with oil.

4. Sprinkle the chili powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and rosemary over the wedges, mixing them up to distribute the spices. I like to go off smell, so after that mixing, take a whiff and see if you need to add more seasoning.

5. Bake in the oven for 35-40 minutes.

6. Enjoy!!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Gotta love roasted potatoes!  

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmhmm! And so easy to make!

Re: What's on your plate?

This thread makes me so HUNGRY!  I logged in just to check what temperature you set the oven for the baked wedges....I bought a bunch of red potatoes the other day just for that! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Hilarious, google/youtube "what if wild animals ate fast food". =P

 

I totally pigged out on free pizza and wings last lunch, which usually means I get 3 extra pounds to my weight for the week, but I followed it up with 1.5 lbs of strawberries (and nothing else) for dinner and didn't gain any weight! I think I discovered the secret to eating free food/buffet and not get fat! Altho if I can bounce like balloon, that's pretty cool too.

Re: What's on your plate?

Hahahaha! That video is too funny! And soooo cute! ^_^

 

I love the cheetah/leopard sleeping and then suddenly being like "OHNOEZ! O_O" as he slips, only to fall and bounce away!

 


What kind of pizza and wings???? Mmmm!

Re: What's on your plate?

pepperoni, the typical free food kind. And spicy wings

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmm, hungrrrrriiiessss!

Re: What's on your plate?

YUM! I had granola with almond milk for breakfast. Apple and banana for a snack. For lunch, I had tilapia and broccoli. Drinking green tea w/ honey now Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum!

 

I'm having some green tea too! Mine's has mint in it though.

 

How was the tilapia cooked/prepared?

Re: What's on your plate?

Just seasoned with a bunch of random stuff, sorry I forget! and thrown into the oven with Lemon Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?
