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? 😄

Re: What's on your plate?

Made my own açaí bowl. I used the unsweetened açaí packets from Trader Joe’s and blended in half a banana, some apple slices and pear slices with some unsweetened almond milk. On top of the açaí I made some vanilla chia pudding and sprinkled some granola and sliced almonds.

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1  That looks beautiful (and yummy!)  Do you find baking with yeast doughs easy?  I have a couple of recipes I keep meaning to try, but they look a little time consuming.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 I, uh, definitely cheat 🤣.  I use my bread machine to mix the dough for me and then I do the easy stuff from there.  I have a few really solid base recipes that I tweak/customize as needed and I haven't tried many new ones lately.  I just don't bake yeast breads very often. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1  Thanks for the update- cheating can be helpful. 🙂  I never got a notification for this post- sorry!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum yum yum ! Please send over a piece @CookieGirl1 😍

Re: What's on your plate?

@CookieGirl1 That looks amazing. 

Re: What's on your plate?

First time trying an Acai bowl and it actually wasn’t that bad. Even my daughter loved it.

@Sunnysmom @Good to know. 

Re: What's on your plate?

That looks delicious @SportyGirly125. Yrs ago before Açaí bowl is popular in the mainland I kept saying I would try it every time we was in Hawaii but never did. I still haven’t yet 🤣😘😂 Must try one soon 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

@SportyGirly125 @blackkitty2014 @Sunnysmom, I used to have acai bowls every so often pre-pandemic. Then, during the stay at home last year, I tried making them myself, with varying degrees of success. 😂 This talk of acai bowls is making me think it's time again to make another one. Hmmm . . . 🤔 maybe this weekend. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@itsfi @Sunnysmom I made it and it was a huge letdown. There were so many things that were not tasting right with it. You wouldn’t think it would be that hard to make right but geesh I was bummed. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh no @SportyGirly125 I wonder why. I have no experience in making them vs just being lazy and buying them because I probably couldn’t get them right!  I wonder what you could do to help out the flavor. Not sweet enough? Stevia or monk fruit etc? I bet some of these gals can weigh in on how to do them. 🙂 

Re: What's on your plate?

@Sunnysmom I watched some Youtube videos after and it was a blending issue I had.  Also, I didn't know people were adding fruits and then blending for taste.  So I have to play with the ingredients and see how to perfect it.
