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 am not a baker but today it was very rainy so I felt like making cookies.  I made Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

Exactly!

Re: What's on your plate?

I've gone from all of the pasta pics to all the dessert pics...

strawberries, vanilla ice cream, and an 18yr chocolate balsamic vinegar.

Spry you're killing me! 

Re: What's on your plate?

I'm gonna need a bigger spoon so I can take bigger bites, please and thank you! Smiley Very Happy

 

Re: What's on your plate?

Love this thread idea! You're so right- beauty has a lot to do with your health and your diet too! My skin has been so happy, clear, and the redness has gone away ever since I switched to a plant-based (AKA vegan) diet!

 

Do you mind if I spam some of my meals all at once?

 

Bokchoy and Beans

This dinner was so good! It is brown rice, Field Roast Italian (vegan) sausage, fava beans, baby bok choy, roasted red bell pepper and onions, and "oyster" mushrooms.

 

Vegan restaurant

That time I went to a vegan restaurant in Camden, London! I had vegan dumplings with sweet chili sauce, marinated olives, and a carrot-ginger juice! I also saw Radiohead play right after this meal, AND got ENGAGED that night at the concert!!!!!! Good times! <3

 

typical lunch

A typical lunch I eat at work: a navel orange, pickled okra, Van's everything crackers with salsa, and a spinach-black bean-basil pesto quesadilla with daiya (vegan) cheese toasted in a spinach tortilla. So good! Also, some Gevalia almond milk iced latte!

 

vegan pancakes

That time I made vegan pancakes for my boyfriend (who is now my fiance!!!!) Vegan pancakes with frozen berries, mango, Irish Breakfast tea with soymilk, orange juice, and soy whipped cream. The pancakes are so fluffy!

 

Vegan Easter Dinner

My fancy vegan Easter dinner! Chopped fresh fruit with minced mint leaves, stuffed yellow bell pepper (stuffed with brown rice, chopped herbs, and vegan chorizo), green beans, fingerling potatoes, and grilled eggplant. So good!

 

another work lunch vegan

Sorry, one last one and I'll stop spamming! I just can't help it! This is another typical lunch I have at work. Chopped celery, banana, strawberries, and a navel orange. Whole wheat bread sandwich with chopped cherry tomatoes, spinach, 'follow your heart' vegan mayo (grapeseed variety) and Tofurky slices. Also, carrot juice and some lemon-ginger tea. So yummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

While I'm not vegan, this all looks yummy. And congratulations on your engagement!

 

The dumplings look the yummiest to me! Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Thanks so much! <3 Yes, those dumplings were so good. I need to learn how to make those!

Re: What's on your plate?

Tonight we had grilled wild king salmon with an apricot glaze, steamed broccoli and fresh blueberries.

Re: What's on your plate?

Salmon is my favorite! That looks delicious!

Re: What's on your plate?

It was pretty tasty! Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Newest experiment - cauliflower "potato" salad. This is so good, straight to regular menu it goes! Smiley Happy Yum!

Re: What's on your plate?

This looks yummy although I like my potato salad with vinaigrette instead of mayo.

Re: What's on your plate?

That's no mayo, @DiVWA . I don't make any kind of potato salad with mayo. I like it with sour cream the best. Yogurt and/or sour cream. And other stuff added in, as well, of course. It is very rich and decadent that way. But, no mayo. It's yellowish ( if that's what threw you off ) because of turmeric and some yellow mustard ( very little ).

Re: What's on your plate?

Hello! My spiralizer has struck again! Smiley Wink Today I made stir-fried chicken with Romanseco broccoli, with carrot and broccoli noodles mixed in.

Re: What's on your plate?

This one looks good, too!

Re: What's on your plate?

it looks to me like a spiralizer is a good investment I've been pondering getting one for a while now.  

Re: What's on your plate?

Tried chicken cauliflower "rice" pilaf the other day... Not bad. But, nothing special, either.

But! What I made from the cauli rice leftovers the next day was pure awesomeness! Cauli crust pizza! And, it was a winner! The crust turned out so amazing! ( There's home made smoked pepperoni kinda meat under that cheese. And, those are black Kalamata olives on the top. )

So much win! And, so much yum! Smiley Happy
