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 agree!  I love seeing what everyone is eating in this thread and I wish I could make everything!  I've been working on my cooking so hopefully one day I'll be able to make everything.

Re: What's on your plate?

I need to make these cupcakes....

Re: What's on your plate?

Make sure to send me one Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?


My first ever pie! Blueberry. Its not pretty. But I'm proud of myself.

Re: What's on your plate?

Au contraire, @Samtian, this is a beauty!

What kind of fat did you use in the crust?


And most importantly, how did it taste?

Re: What's on your plate?

^^^ Asking all the hard hitting questions!


And great job, Samtian! The crust edge has a beautiful color and I'm very curious on that green pie pan! How unique! 

Re: What's on your plate?

@lylysa The green pie pan is from The Pioneer Woman, as brand Wal-mart has started carrying. They have really cute stuff. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Nice! I'll have to check it out!

Re: What's on your plate?

It tasted delicous! Partially hydronated lard. 

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks seriously yummy. Don't be hard on yourself for how it looks! It's how it tastes that's important! Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

It looks pretty enough for my liking!!!!!   😋😋😋

Re: What's on your plate?

Oooh, I think it's gorgeous!

Re: What's on your plate?


Y'all, I love this thread!!!


I spent Christmas in New Orleans, and I was too excited to take pictures of my food, so boo to me!


Here are some things I've eaten lately:



Whole wheat cinnamon-raisin bagel toasted and buttered with Miyoko's Kitchen vegan European-style butter, with Kite Hill dairy-free cashew "cream cheese", sprinkled with ground flaxseed, chia seeds, toasted coconut, and cocoa, topped with fresh blueberries. All surrounded by fresh sliced navel orange wedges.  What a lovely breakfast!


This was what I ate for Thanksgiving dinner! We have @gardein turk'y roast, sweet potato casserole made with @miyokos_kitchen vegan butter, green beans, potatoes, turnip & collard #greens , #homemade cranberry sauce, vegan risotto, and @gardein gravy!


Hah, here is a photo of what I ate on a recent all-nighter at my alma mater's library when I was working on my master's thesis. Just turned it in a week or so ago, woohoo! I went to taco bell to get a bean burrito (vegan), and also had some of their weird mountain dew flavors- excellent for the all-nighter!


The day after I turned in my thesis, my sister baked me some vegan cupcakes! These are famous-bakery-worthy! To the left, we have almond-vanilla cupcakes (made with almond milk instead of cow's milk and almond extract for extra flavor) with non-dairy gourmet 'cream cheese' icing with orange marmalade mixed in! To the right we have chocolate almond cupcakes with cocoa mixed into the batter, and the icing is the same as the other one, but with cocoa powder mixed in as well. #whoneedsmilkandeggswhenyouhavethese


Then we have some hot cocoa vegan-style! I heated up unsweetened soymilk, stirred in melted Chocolate Dream dairy-free chocolate chips, and topped with @so_delicious coconut whipped cream. Garnished with a candy cane!

On Christmas Eve, I ate this gorgeous gourmet vegan "milk" chocolate St. Nick filled with vegan sour gummy bears! So good!


Last night I ate collard greens (Southern style, but without the ham hocks because #vegan Smiley Wink  ), veggie chili, yellow squash, and some Daiya-brand non-dairy mac and 'cheese' with field peas, carrots, and bell peppers. It was sooooo good that I got seconds.


And finally, my snack from this afternoon! I had warmed chocolate almond milk with some dark chocolate-covered pretzels. My nail polish matches my beverage! (Butter London Champers).



Re: What's on your plate?

Lovely plating on these dishes. Congratulations on finishing your thesis and Happy New Year to you!

Re: What's on your plate?

Thank you so much! I'm so relieved to have it over (for the time being). Happy New Year to you too! <3

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmm this all looks so delicious!! But I must know...what were the weird Mt. Dew flavors?

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks! Hehe, I think it was Sangria or .... Baja Blast? One of those. It was pretty good!!!! I think they are exclusive to Taco Bell or something like that.

Re: What's on your plate?

Yummmmm! I love all the pics!

And kudos for matching your nail polish to your drink! It's alllllll in the details!

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha, thank you! It was a happy accident.

Re: What's on your plate?

Congratulations on completing your thesis - what an amazing accomplishment! 

Re: What's on your plate?

Sorry it's taken me so long to reply! I've been sick! Smiley Sad


Thank you so much!

Re: What's on your plate?

I was feeling the need for bacon, so I made a turkey bacon, low fat muenster cheese and toasted flax seed bread breakfast sandwich with my usual mammoth cup of coffee and fat free milk. Gotta love the weekends when you have time to enjoy more than a rushed bowl of cereal!

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmmm, bacon.....


Toast sounds super nice *must buy bread*


Re: What's on your plate?

Lol i was looking at Pinterest and saw this!! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

The weekend means cooking up breakfast and bacon tends to be a regular for me. I do have scallops in the fridge so maybe BACON WRAPPED SCALLOPS?!?!?!??!??!
