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

Today I had apples with "The Bee's Knees" peanut butter! It keeps me full and energized at work! 

 

 

I also love making oatmeal banana shakes! They are quick, filling, and delicous!

Re: What's on your plate?

Aw, the photo didn't post up! Smiley Sad Is it set on private?

 

That oatmeal and banana shake sounds delicious, I'm sure it would also make a great work out/power breakfast shake too!

Re: What's on your plate?

Have to admit I'm being bad because I'm in a hurry today, canned peaches, pizza rolls, and some toast with peanut butter for lunch.  When I was traveling the other day I had raspberries, bananas, pistachios, and jerky, with salmon, brown rice and asparagus for lunch and chicken gyoza for dinner.  I really need to start eating more like when I travel XD

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum!!! Pistachios are one of my favorite nuts!

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!

Re: What's on your plate?

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.

 

El Fantastico!

Re: What's on your plate?

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!

Re: What's on your plate?

Nice!

Re: What's on your plate?

For breakfast, chocolate strawberry milkshake today, chocolate/nut butter/banana milk shake yesterday. I love my immersion blender!

 

lunch/dinner: store brought fried/buffalo chicken, my own spinach potato bisque, and freshly made apple cider donut (I couldn't resist, the smell from the stand hit me as soon as I opened the door of my building to go outside.....). Mmmm, aside from that, lots of whole grain pasta with almond pesto cuz they are the easiest to make.

Re: What's on your plate?

All I see is chocolate...chocolate...chocolate! J/k! Smiley Tongue

 

That sounds yummy, last night I had rice; steamed grouper with ginger and green onion; chicken, baby bok choy, bbq pork, and scrambled eggs with onions.

 

Finished that off with tons of oranges!

Re: What's on your plate?

sgetti.jpgThis is the spaghetti we will be eating, probably for the next 3 weeks >.>  The sauce is titled "Awesomesauce" and my own unique recipe here is all but the special ingredient:

 

2 large cloves garlic (minced)

1 onion (chopped)

1 bell pepper (chopped)

1Tbs Olive oil

1 jar tomato basil sauce

1 can Italian Stewed tomatoes (with juice)

1 can Mexican Stewed tomatoes (with juice)

basil

garlic salt

pepper

cumin

gewurtztraminer

red wine

beef base

sugar

liquid smoke

(secret ingredient)

 

This sauce in presimmer can double as a tomato soup if topped with a little gouda and parsley and served with grilled cheese.  Simmer it down and it makes an epic spaghetti sauce Smiley Very Happy

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh that looks good.....AND it can double as soup....?!?!?!??! I'm sold! *hands over bowl*

Re: What's on your plate?

breakfast: smoothie w/ spirulina, cherry juice, greek full-fat yogurt, coconut oil, banana, frozen pineapple and raspberries, kiwi (the fruits vary daily except the banana, the other components are the same).

 

brunch: quiche from NewTree (probably not the healthiest thing in the world, but homemade and yummy/ natural)...I never used to eat breakfast at all and the smoothie is just to not have an empty stomach/ get some EFAs and anti-oxidants going, usually have oatmeal as a later breakfast. And a mocha...

 

lunch: wasn't that hungry at lunchtime, but I knew if I didn't eat something I'd be hungry later (and have to eat/ not work out or work out later). Went to San Francisco Fish Company in the Ferry Bldg and got 1/4 lb of their prawn ceviche...yummy and the perfect amount of food, nice and refreshing while sitting in the sun.

 

I try to drink a fair amount of tea also (should drink more water...I tend to drink more at night)...Red Blossom Tea company in SF carries fantastic tea...their Three Cultivar Red, Natural Cultivar and Moroccan Mint are some of my faves, but I'm looking fwd to trying more.

 

Not sure what's for dinner yet, my husband will shop...and actually he has to cook tonight!

Re: What's on your plate?

Same here with breakfast! I never used to eat it, but I do know how important it is. Now I try to at least have a breakfast taco, or a smoothie....while reading your's I was drooling and drooling and drooling!

 

I haven't had quiche in forever, a weakness of mine are mini quiches! I just pop them one at a time until I realize "Oh my gosh, I've had about 5 or 7", along with a plate of food! Smiley Very Happy
