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?

When I bought potato chips at the store yesterday (major stress food for me), I got back a coupon for "Wholesome Goodness Granola Bar".  LOL I think someone's trying to tell me something......

Re: What's on your plate?

LOL! I think it's funny when grocery stores give coupons like that after receipt print outs, you can buy all the junk food in the world and then out pops a soy milk or protein bar coupon!

Re: What's on your plate?

After reading a bit all I can think is 'YUM' and now I'm hungry!!! To be honest though, my diet in general is HORRIBLE... I dream of the day when I'll have the time to take better care of myself Smiley Happy This is probably why I need (and religiously follow) such a great skincare routine hehehe Smiley Happy  

Re: What's on your plate?

Feel free to even share the not so healthy stuff, we're not here to judge and besides, sometimes the junk food stuff is what makes us drool and have our mouths watering the most! Haha!


We post recipes and whatnot here too, and don't be afraid to ask for one if someone posts up a yummy meal and you want more info! Smiley Very Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Today I had a late brunch, and I'm smelling the roasted chicken legs that will be a late dinner.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmm, I had chicken last night too!

Re: What's on your plate?

A little late but hey, it's  still July, right? Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Ooo are those almond slivers on there too?

Re: What's on your plate?

OK, I have to share today's dinner because it was out of my wheelhouse (I am comfortable with cooking most critters that had legs), but also because it was delish.


  • Grilled Koho Salmon with Chimichurri sauce
  • 2 Grilled Scallops, topped with Garlic and Herb Butter
  • small scoop of twice-baked macaroni and cheese
  • Sparkling water



Re: What's on your plate?

Did you make your own garlic herb butter?

Re: What's on your plate?

Re: What's on your plate?

Aloe juice is delish!


What all seafood was in the soup? Your meal sounds super yummy!

Re: What's on your plate?

We had sushi for dinner. I love it!!!

Re: What's on your plate?

Niiiiiiice, I'm a sushi fan myself! What pieces/rolls did you get?

Re: What's on your plate?

Since I have been on clear liquid diet for a week I was finally able to eat!!!!! We went to a Mongolian Grill soooo good!  To drink I had a watermelon spritzer which is watermelon, pineapple juice and sprite (I spiked it) haha Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Yum, what watermelon spritzer sounds super refreshing for Summer!


What all did you load up on at the grill?

Re: What's on your plate?

Chowing down on my favorite summer snack right now- grilled zucchini with a wash of olive oil and a bit of sea salt.

Re: What's on your plate?

Mmm, sea salt is the best! So flavorful!


I just came back from Panera so it was chicken and wild rice soup, their Frontega chicken panini, chips and a strawberry smoothie! Their frozen drinks are 50% for August from 3-5! Whohoo, it's like a Panera happy hour!

Re: What's on your plate?

Wonderful food today.

- Dark chocolate + strawberry crapes (with a hint of cognac)

- Chestnut crapes

- half gallon of lavender boba tea (ok, not half gallon, but it came in a giant soup bowl cup size, at least 16-20oz.



Re: What's on your plate?

Dark chocolate!!! *Drool!*


Was the cup too heavy to lift in one hand??? If so, it was a half gallon! Smiley Tongue

Re: What's on your plate?

yesterday I had

honey crunch flakes with 2% milk

fajhita's with all of the awesome Mexican companions


moose tracks ice cream+homemade cookie and boston cream pie yogurt.


LOL talk about a binge! Smiley Happy usually during the week I stick to my favorites like fruit and veg.

Re: What's on your plate?

OMG, I haven't had Moose Tracks in forever, that was delish when I stumbled on it at the grocery store!

Re: What's on your plate?

Now that I know this thread exists, I'll be using it to help keep me on track.  Smiley Very Happy


So far, I've had one slice of French toast with one scrambled egg, one sausage patty, and one slice of bacon.  The egg & sausage went on the toast for a sandwich, the bacon was savored all on its own.

Re: What's on your plate?

This place is a haven for all things food! Be it healthy or sometimes just super lush! Smiley Tongue


I encourage everyone to post recipes or ask for recipes too if something someone posts catches your eye! I myself have posted a few recipes complete with photos to show steps!


Bacccccccon! I have some in my casserole right now!

Re: What's on your plate?

This morning it's scrambled eggs (from a local farm) with fresh ground pepper.

Scrambled eggs really is the ultimate rock star breakfast. Easy to make & good for your hair. Smiley Very Happy
