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

Slow-cooker meal today (no photo, sorry) - Pork Tinga (adapted from Rick Bayless's recipe).


Pork butt, chorizo, potatoes, and onions slow-cooked with tomatoes and chipotles in adobo. Topped with cheese and avocado.



Re: What's on your plate?

Slow-cooker meals are so great!

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight we had homemade pizza. Crust is gluten-free and made first. Sauce is made the same time the toppings are prepared. First photo is of 2/3 of the pizza and second one is a slice after someone took a bite out of it.

Re: What's on your plate?

I have been eating Turf 'n Turf for the last two days.  I blame Lylysa for it.  And Ron Swanson.


I am in my happy place.

Re: What's on your plate?

I had Turf 'n Turf for lunch....leftover beef stroganoff and lamb loin chops.


Mr. Swanson would approve.

Re: What's on your plate?

Low Carb Grain Free Bacon Cheeseburger Calzone.


Effing yumm!


Made this for the first time today. I was very skeptical about this one because of the "dough"... But, this is soooo very delish, I already think about all the other goodies I could stuff it with. Smiley Happy Definitely a keeper.






Re: What's on your plate?

The mention of calzones brings Ben from Parks and Rec to mind...

Re: What's on your plate?

Haha, this is way too cute not to share. Hangry pigglet. Smiley Happy


( I know the feeling! )

Re: What's on your plate?

This is amazing.

Re: What's on your plate?

I must confess to PSL sins.

Target had little chocolate things and I had to research for science.

  1. While the solid chocolate candy Elmer's makes at Valentines is ok, do not eat the Elmers PSL bonbons. Not worth the calories
  2. Russel Stover PSL this was ok but really sweet like a white chocolate
  3. Hershey Candy Corn Bar. Just don't. This is white chocolate that is sweeter than white chocolate and only faintly tastes of candy corn. Which I have lost my taste for apparently.
  4. Lessons learned, the last two together made me so nauseous I wanted to rainbow for three hours. Too much cheap sugar.

Re: What's on your plate?


I think you've scienced quite well. Kudos. Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Hi, guys! Long time no see. Smiley Wink


Stopping by to share this wonderful, quick and easy snack, dessert, call it whatever you want... I call it "f#$%^ delish"! 


All you need is some plain yogurt, nut butter ( I used almond butter ), berries, honey, and a splash of vanilla ( optional ).




Stir it all up, and dig in! YUMM!




It doesn't sound like it, but it really is surprisingly mucho yummo. 

Re: What's on your plate?

I like the sound of all those ingredients separate, so WHY NOT throw them all together??? 


I don't even think I'd get to stirring it up, hahaha, just throw all in a bowl and chow down!

Re: What's on your plate?
