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?

That is awesome! Thanks for the back story.

Re: What's on your plate?

You're welcome! ^_^

 

When my mom had her red egg party for me I was passed out in virtually all my photos...so there's this chubby little Asian baby knocked out and she placed the jewelry I received on me so I looked like a sleeping Mr. T! LOL!

Re: What's on your plate?

what a feast! @lylysa

Re: What's on your plate?

I know! And that was just what we took home!

 

There was also fish soup and an appetizer plate of jellyfish, cold cut slices, chicken feet, and fried crab/shrimp dumplings! 

 

I was in food coma!

Re: What's on your plate?

Everything sounds delish! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow that's a lot of food! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Lanndan and I went out last night to our favorite Mexican food place with a couple of friends.  I LOVE El Charolais!!!!  I ordered one of the combination meals: 2 hard shell tacos, rice, and an enchilada.  I love their rice, which is a good thing since I have to limit my gluten. 

Re: What's on your plate?

<3 me some Mexican food! Flautas are my favorite though!

Re: What's on your plate?

Tamales all the way for me, and the place that makes decent ones in town (so that I don't need to make them myself) and not to mention fountain Mexi-Coke, opened for their season the other day!  Definitely getting a tamale today ^.^  

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum! What kind of tamales are there at the place?

Re: What's on your plate?

Only pork and chicken chili, but the chicken chili are the best and delightfully zesty, the bonus (and the thing that makes them stand out to me besides the flavor) is the fact that they serve it in husk Smiley Very Happy  I've been working on a copycat for their chicken ones, still haven't quite achieved it, but I've gotten close!

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooo, the chicken chili sounds super interesting! My b/f's mom gave us homemade deer meat tamales but his freezer went out and we didn't know so we couldn't save them Smiley Sad

Re: What's on your plate?

Saaad, deer meat is one of the best meats!  They mae the best burgers too, just mix in a package of the golden onion Lipton recipe secrets per pound, add some avocado and voila!  Best. Burgers. EVER. Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

I love the flavor of onion (not keen about having actual onions on my burger though, I'm strange) and I bet the avocado makes it very moist and creamy in texture!

Re: What's on your plate?

Definitely does, I don't like flat out onion on mine either, but if they're sauteed or caramelized they're pretty delicious Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm getting super hungry now though I had two breakfast tacos.

 

Pappas, juevos, y queso y turkey, juevos, y queso!

 

My belly is happy, but all this talk of tamales and burgers is making me wish lunch time was sooner!

Re: What's on your plate?

I should probably also clarify that the avocado is placed on top of the finished patty, if moisture (in place of fat) needs to be added, a small amount of tomato juice or apple cider vinegar will do the trick Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

TAMALES! omg omg omg. I looooooooove tamales back when I lived in TX, but now I'm up north, the only "Mexican food" up here are tacos and burritos. Oh, and tortilla chips/salsa/guac. Tamales are nonexistent. T.T

 

Ah deer meat, there's this really oddball guy friend I had in HS and his family hunts, so he bring deer meat jerky to school sometimes and I love it.

 

Ok, time for lunch.

Re: What's on your plate?

Ok.... So I feel like maybe I shouldn't post this with the healthy theme here, but it has fruit in it... And it's 100% organic! Smiley Very Happy

 

I was challenged with a cheesecake bakeoff at work, and I don't lose. So this is my creation Smiley Happy 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Ummm...you should make an extra one and mail it to me Smiley Very Happy That looks amazing!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

I need this cake! It looks absolutely beautiful and I am sure it tastes even better! Smiley Happy 

<3, Randee

Re: What's on your plate?

Good use of the word "need", Randee! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha, I thought that made my situation seem slightly more pressing Smiley Wink

<3, Randee

Re: What's on your plate?

Very much so, I definitely got the sense of urgency and importance from your post because of it!

Re: What's on your plate?

This is a food theme and I always encourage any and all foods as long as there's balance!!! Smiley Very Happy
