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

Dried scallop Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Say whaaaaaaaa?!?! I've never seen or heard this! Where did you get it? asian super market or normal supermarket? *super curious*

Re: What's on your plate?



You know what's funny, I've never seen dried scalliops as is, but my parents add it to congee and I love it. Heck, I love scallop in any form or fashion!


Re: What's on your plate?

No one's posted here for a while, so I went to the store to look for a jicama to go with my lunch, and found a new fruit I love, the rambutan, it is amazing!  


For lunch I mixed jasmine rice (frying it in oil from frying tortilla slices) with leftover steak taco fixins, pico de gallo and some salt, and put some jicama slices and cottage cheese on the side with a raspberry chia drink thing.  I'm pretty darn happy with how it came out, and I turned one sitting worth of taco fixins into 6 servings of Mexican rice and tortilla chips! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Chiiiiiia!!! OMG! I love putting chia seeds in my drinks/juices! P.S. That plate is a plate of yum!

Re: What's on your plate?

Chia is a recent to me, but I like the texture, and definitely noticed an energy boost!

Re: What's on your plate?

Well, that's one way to murder a good thread :/  Seriously though, chica, you are too young to not be getting the nutrition you need, definitely seek help if you need it Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Amen to that, Moregun!


@ Mintshake, Tricia and Diana are right, everyone here at BT has open hearts and arms if there is an issue that you want to bring up. We're not here to pry, but when you post things for the public to see like that we will of course be concerned, but please do not cry wolf in instances if you don't follow through or elaborate. Though this is a beauty forum and may not be the most conventional or usual spot for anyone to seek help on an emotional level, that doesn't mean we can't try in some way to help. We're here for everyone, but only if those who seek help truly mean it.



Re: What's on your plate?

What the...I would've said I had food if I had any thing there's literally nothing in my house, and besides, I don't need your "help".
