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?

Holy moly! That sounds/look fantastic!

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow, that sounds delicious! Olives are my favorite pizza topping! I had a pizza with just green olives on it the other day. It was so amazing!

Re: What's on your plate?

Any store with an olive bar gets my love. I wish I could claim that I'm part Mediterranean... but I just have an irrational love affair with the things.

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too! Heart When I go to a store like Whole Foods and approach the olive bar, my mouth seriously begins watering. They are my favorite food!

Re: What's on your plate?

I haven't had anything yet Smiley Sad But later I'll be having fried chicken, collard greens, mac 'n' cheese and corn bread *drool*

Re: What's on your plate?

Million dollar question....what kind of cornbread???? Sweet? Savory? Spicy???

 

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Hmmm I'd say sweet, but not as sweet as some others I've tried.

Re: What's on your plate?

Jiffy cornbread with brown sugar.....mmmmm

Re: What's on your plate?

High five for the sweet!!!!

 

I take Jiffy mix and yellow cake mix and put them together, takes the guess work out of sugar measurements.

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG that is perfection!  what is your cornbread to cake ratio?  I may have to try that With my next batch of chili. 

Re: What's on your plate?

It's 1 box of Jiffy (prepared as is) and half a box of yellow cake mix (prepared with half the add-in ingredients).

 

Easiest thing ever and soooo good! My friend moved to Korea for a while as her husband was stationed there and craved it so bad she messaged me for the recipe!

Re: What's on your plate?

mmmm that sounds delicious! jealous!

Re: What's on your plate?

This post popped up and I perused the first 6 pages.  Oh my God- your salads look amazing!  I've been a vegetarian for 21 years, so I could leave the meat out, but where do you get all your ideas?!!  I just want to scarf all these up and I bet they are really healthy too!

Re: What's on your plate?

<3 I hope they inspired you! I really love pretty salads with all kinds of mixed greens and crispy veggies so I just look at what's fresh in the store (Walmart, mostly though I shop some veggies and fruits at an Asian Grocery) and some good ideas pop up on the net like the black truffle oil and adding nuts came from (I think) Martha Stewart. Deff using Herbes de Provence did. And I'm an avocado freak. Smiley Wink only rule for my eating is they have to stay pretty low carb. 

Re: What's on your plate?

Homemade wonton noodles soup (I haven't added the broth yet in this picture). It took 4+ hours to do everything but it was sooo worth it.

 

I've been trying to cook in instead of eating out and I gotta say, it's not as bad as I thought it would be

2) Taco casserole

3) Taco salad 

4) Vermicelli with grilled pork, shrimp, and eggrolls

5) Vietnamese savory crepes (or pancakes, depending on who you ask)

Re: What's on your plate?

#1...can you share the taco casserole recipe????

 

And #2....what all is in the crepe??? I've had some Korean seafood versions but I want to compare because they look a touch similar!

Re: What's on your plate?

I made yeast rolls (for the first time) to have with the stew I made for dinner.  I'm testing out recipes to make rolls for Thanksgiving. 

You can tell which ones got extra butter. Smiley Wink
