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 had a granola bar for breakfast and work was so busy that I had to go through lunch Smiley Sad

So that's it for now, but My friends birthday is tonight so I cash in all my missed calories at the restaurant!

@hellokristyxo- Super unhealthy looks good to me!

Re: What's on your plate?

Today for lunch it's leftover tuna skillet casserole with broccoli and mushrooms!

 

Super easy to make! Just toss everything into the skillet and let it simmer away!

Re: What's on your plate?

Alright, recipe time!!!!

For some background story, my aunt has been making this soup for as long as I can remember. Growing up, I always ate it, it's super basic but so good, kind of like comfort food to me. Though my first attempt comes nowhere near hers (I did the shortened/quick version and she slow cooks her for about 4 hours), it turned out quite yummy! With the left ovr fish, tomato, potato, carrot, and oinion mix and pieces, I put it in a ziploc and froze it for use next time when I make it again! It's a very light soup so it pairs well with food, you can even add in brown rice, quinoa, or pasta if you want to change it up and make it more like a meal!

 

Tomato and Fish Soup

 

Ingredients:

-Red Snapper (though you can use other types of fish, I like how RS tastes, you can get filets so you don't have to worry about bones or get a whole fish scaled and fileted and use the spine pieces and head, if you use pieces where bones are still in, you can get a soup or muslin bag to put them in so the bones just seep out)

 

-5 tomatoes, chopped into quarters, remove most/all the seeds you can (you can add more if you're making a larger pot or for more flavor, I normally grab the on-the-vine variety where there's about 3 or 4 large ones and maybe 1 or 2 smaller ones)

 

-3 or 4 white potatoes, cubed

 

-2 or 3 large carrots, sliced

 

-1/3 of a large, sweet onion, cut into long strips/pieces

 

-Salt

 

-Pot of water

 

(Optional method will include)

 

-Oil (I like to use sesame)

 

-Garlic and ginger

 

Alright you can see I have an "Optional Method" this is for a shortened cook time if you can't spend 3-4 hours slow cooking and simmering this soup. If you're looking to do this recipe in about an hour, use the first step below, if not, you can just add your fish pieces directly to the pot of water.

 

1. Wash/rinse fish pieces off and pat dry with paper towels, sprinkle both sides with salt. Heat a pan with some oil and add in cut ginger and garlic (feel free to make pieces larger, no need to do a fine dice if you don't want). Lightly fry/cook pieces of fish until half way cooked. Set aside, if you have a soup or muslin bag to put fish in so you don't get bones in the mix, let the pieces settle a bit before putting them in the bag.

 

2. In the pot of water, add in your fish pieces, potato, tomato, and onion pieces. Bring to a boil, no need to keep it at the highest heat/temperature available, it can cook on a medium high or even on 7/8 level on the stove.

 

3. Let the soup cook on the stove, adding salt as you please and checking the taste, I like to check within the first 20 minutes. The longer you leave it the more the flavors release and mix, again, you can wrap up this soup in an hour or even let it slow cook on low or medium/low heat for 3-4 hours. Keep monitoring the soup, don't let it boil over the pot, the potatoes will soften, the tomatoes will soften (even separate from their skins), onions will turn transparent, and fish will fall off the bone or break into smaller chunks/pieces, again, add salt to your tastes.

 

4. Depending on how long you want it to cook, once it hits that mark, turn off the heat and serve! Like I said, if you want to turn it into a heartier soup, add brown rice, pasta, or quinoa to the mix (growing up I would go back for a second bowl and add rice to it).

 

Enjoy!!!
