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? 😄

So sophisticated @heartsmyface!! 😍

@Saradestin   Hahahah, it’s fun to pretend anyway!  

Re: What's on your plate?

It has been a loooong time since the last time I posted here, and it hasn’t been because of not having any food to take a picture of! I have plenty! 

I will post yesterday’s meal, delicious grilled salmon with broccoli and sweet and sour grain mustard sauce. I have to say that it was exquisite and it couldn’t be easier and faster!

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum, @Saradestin. Salmon every day would be perfect! Yours looks delicious with broccoli. 

Re: What's on your plate?

@eshoe I love fish but I miss the great variety that I had in Spain. This salmon was exquisite though 😋😋

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin it looks super healthy, good job!! 😋🥦

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you @Skunk12puzzola gorgeous! It was so good!

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin  This is an absolute favorite dish of mine:). 

Re: What's on your plate?

I can understand why @heartsmyface !! 😋😋😋

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin  Also your photo is very nice!  I swear it’s clearer than my actual vision!  

Re: What's on your plate?

I’m drooling 🤤 just look at the beautiful dish @Saradestin . It’s healthy too 😘

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you so much, sweet @blackkitty2014 ! I always try to make everything look beautiful because I also eat with my eyes. If it looks beautiful, it tastes better 😁

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin.What a great combo of flavors! I would order this in a restaurant it looks that good!

 

Re: What's on your plate?

It was really good @Ispend2much6 ! I was pretty impressed 😁

Re: What's on your plate?

@Saradestin  You should be!

Re: What's on your plate?

Garlic update 🧄 @Ispend2much6 @Saradestin : is basically dead. Both the sprouts (the one I planted in January and the youngest) aren't growing. The leaves are turning yellow, and they are not growing in height. It's not the right time to harvest, so they are not yellow and floppy for that. I tried to water it less than possible, it didn't work out. I read online that garlic needs dry soil, but you must give it at least some water for a healthy growth, so I gave it a few splashes of that. I tried to put it in a sunny spot. Nada, is so floppy and yellow looking. I will wait a few more days, and then I will throw everything away 💔

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola. Perhaps next year will be The Year?

I'm a bit late in reading this post- all about growing Garlic. I also struggle with gardening, and you have my sympathy of course.

My granny had green thumb. I suspect one has to be a bit stubborn to have success in le jardin.

Re: What's on your plate?

@MvLL thanks, gardening is not the easiest thing. I don't want to try again because I already lost 4 sprouts, and I think it won't get better next time so.....it was a fun experiment but that's it for me.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola  Check the nitrogen in your soil.  You may have a nitrogen deficiency.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Too late @heartsmyface I already trash the garlic in the bin. There was mold inside the soil, don't know how, because I didn't gave it too much water.

Re: What's on your plate?

@Skunk12puzzola  So what I’m reading is that you need lots of sunlight (which inhibits mold), low moisture and high nitrogen and that you should rotate your soil between harvests and plant tomatoes or potatoes where your last garlic crop was.   
garlic needs tonne planted I the fall so it’s exposed to the cold.  You can cheat and plant late if you put your cloves in the fridge for a few weeks before planting to mimic the cold season and get a better harvest.  no cold means no large bulbs. ( what they’re saying is you still have time to try again cause it’s still spring).
