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? 😄

@Ispend2much6 @yum yum yum 😋 I need to copy you and make this some night 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014. If you do I hope it's good because we haven't eaten yet! I threw in the veggies we had, tired of having a container of ricotta in the fridge taking up valuable real estate,, and didn't feel like cooking a multi-dish dinner. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Since my chicken noodle soup didn't look that pretty, I'll share pictures of our apple crumble.  I mentioned the soup to prove we eat more than sugary foods, since my last three photos were desserts. 😊

Since the topping contains oats, this will probably be breakfast. 

I did learn a good tip from the "National Trust Book of Crumbles,"- cover the filling with foil and cook it until the apples soften before adding the topping.

Re: What's on your plate?

This proves that it is delicious @Ispend2much6 😋 

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014. We did eat alot yesterday! Granny smith apples are fresh and very good right now, which is what I used.

Re: What's on your plate?

That looks delicious! I'm practically drooling at work looking at this.

 

I may need to make an apple crumble when I get home...

 

One of my favorite things about fall is sweets with apple.

Re: What's on your plate?

@StyleLynn  Thanks!  Sorry to make your drool at work. 😂

 

I agree with you about fall and apples; and plums, and pumpkins...

 

I bought one of those apple peeling/slicing gizmos and I have never regretted it , even if I  only pull it out this time of year.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 Looks delicious. Is that ice cream on top?

Re: What's on your plate?

@SportyGirly125  Oh yes, french vanilla.  I bet you can guess from where. 🙂

I used a pre-made topping from the UK; I think I bought it from Amazon.  It's interesting because I can tell they used ground up oats, probably regular and steel cut because there's a little bite, and some dried molasses in it.  Although it's high-carb, the whole thing is low fat (without the ice cream,) because the mix used a little oil in the topping; no butter anywhere in the whole thing.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 I was tempted to grab some french vanilla ice cream in store.  I am glad they offer it in 2 different sizes.

Re: What's on your plate?

@SportyGirly125   One member in our family has to consume a lot of calcium, and this ice cream is their preferred method of meeting that quota. 🙂  I rarely eat ice cream, but I do like it on apple crisp.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 Well dang I wish I could do that to meet my calcium quota.

Re: What's on your plate?

Simple apple cake, the kind where you can throw everything into the mixer at one time and mix it up, then add apples.  Cakes using oil are so easy.

Re: What's on your plate?

Trader Joe's has a new bread- cinnamon roll bread. It reminds me of Greenlee's cinnamon bread, except this one has raisins and no icing or streusel.  It's perfect for french toast.  Made two loaves of it to freeze.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Ispend2much6 Ooh these looks sooooo good. I need to look up the recipe 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

@blackkitty2014. The ratio I like for the soaking liquid is 4 eggs and half a cup of milk or half and half.  I usually add vanilla and cinnamon if there is no cinnamon in the bread.

Re: What's on your plate?

That sounds about perfect @Ispend2much6 , especially the no raisin part! Yummy. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@Sunnysmom  I could do without them too.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mini Banana muffins: my husband and kiddo complained about it’s not enough sweet but they like the texture

Re: What's on your plate?

Oh my goodness yes please, bananas and chocolate  @blackkitty2014 ! So cute. Agree, less sweet is good!
