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?

Cauli crust (homemade)smoked pepperoni pizza. Or, as mr. Husband calls it - stinky pizza! ( Because I sometimes ( like, today! ) make it with cheddar and provolone, and that stinks to him. Pfffft. )

Re: What's on your plate?

It may be stinky, but it's also YUMMMMMEHHHHH!

Re: What's on your plate?

This is a Mexican chocolate cheesecake.  Not my lunch or dinner... Just my latest creation...


Re: What's on your plate?

This looks divine!

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm making a big batch of chicken soup right now.  I don't know why it's so necessary for ne to say big batch.  It is beyond my physical capabilities to make a small batch of soup.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Me too! I mean, if you're already there with all the fixins', why make a small amount? Besides, leftover soup is even better than first-day soup. Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Hello! We had smoked ribs with broccoli last night. The ribs were Saint Louis type cut, dry rub, smoked for 5 hours. Divine! Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Late night dinner ( known as the second dinner in this household. I often have the third one, as well. Smiley Very Happy ). A quick soup. I always have some chicken ( and bone ) broth in the freezer. ( Psyllium/almond flour ) dumplings are quick to make and yummy. Throw in some leftover pulled chicken, and fresh green peppers and scallions, and there's a yummy second dinner. Smiley Happy



Re: What's on your plate?

Oh my gosh, this looks sooooo good! I need to make a vegan version of this. I'm thinking of replacing the chicken broth with vegetable broth, adding in some kelp flakes and miso paste, maybe some pressed/sauteed tofu cubes!

Re: What's on your plate?

Hello! Dinner today was grilled grass-fed beef steak, with steamed broccoli and carrots. What's nice about grilling is that means I get the night off from cooking! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Hello! I had some leftover beef nacho meat so I made nachos using sweet potato fries for the "chips."



Re: What's on your plate?

One time for months all I craved were nachos every day!  Lol!  Brings back memories.  This looks good.

Re: What's on your plate?

Another fruit-influenced dish. I sauteed uncured bratwurst with some chopped kale and whole blueberries, adding some cranberry juice, grape jam and gochujang hot pepper paste at the end. The blueberries melted into this rich, slightly sweet and syrupy sauce and stained the bratwurst a wonderful purple. I served some steamed amaranth grain on the side.

Purple sausage!   How funny!
