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

That pizza looks amazing! That's awesome that you made the dough yourself too! I need to try that one of these days! Smiley Wink

Re: What's on your plate?

Randee, it's so therapeutic too. I honestly just wanted to keep kneading until my shoulders hurt, it felt good. lol. Smiley Happy And I didn't feel that heaviness I feel when I'd go out to buy pizza. I've been making these thin crust too. I just need to buy a pan that has the little holes in it so the crust under can cook well.

Re: What's on your plate?

I love how fresh and bright that looks!

Re: What's on your plate?

Ummm... yes, please!

Re: What's on your plate?

Blackwhiskey, do you have a recipe for the crust?

Re: What's on your plate?

Yes I do!

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 T. sugar
  • 1 .25-ounce package active dry yeast
  • 1 t. olive oil
  • 1 t. salt
  • 2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

For the whole wheat flour, I used the gluten free instead which on the bag says (substitute for wheat flour). I bought it at Sams Club.


1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the warm water, sugar and yeast, mixing gently until bubbles begin to appear on the surface. Let the mixture set for several minutes, or until a small layer of foam appears on the surface. Add the olive oil, salt, and whole wheat flour, mixing until combined. Add the all-purpose flour gradually, until the mixture forms a soft but not sticky dough. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for several minutes or until elastic. Lightly oil the mixing bowl and return the dough to the bowl, turning once to coat. Cover with a dry towel and place in a warm place to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size.

2. Once doubled, punch down the dough. Knead for several minutes into a tight ball, then return the dough to the mixing bowl, cover with the towel, and let rise again until doubled, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.

3. Preheat the oven to 425 F. Lightly oil a pizza pan or baking pan.

4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to a circle of desired thickness, about 14-16 inches in diameter. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet, top with desired toppings, and bake until golden brown, about 16-20 minutes.


I copy pasted this from a site where I got it from.

Thanks BW!

Re: What's on your plate?

No problem Smiley Very Happy It's enough to make maybe 3 pizzas with that recipe. I made one yesterday which is ^ that one. But it came out thick. So today I made one with what was leftover and made a thin crust. So with that in mind, I think 3 mediums.

Re: What's on your plate?

Blackwhiskey, this looks super good! And gluten-free too!


I think it looks yummier with the piece missing.

Re: What's on your plate?

Looks killer, BW..

I'd steal a piece, too!!

My dad is at it again.  


Hot and Sour Soup


Shrimp Fried Rice



We bought these shrimp whole - with the heads and tails still on.  Since I don't cook I volunteered to clean them.  Hadn't done it before and man, is it messy!  But it was kinda fun too Smiley Happy

Re: What's on your plate?

Wow that looks delicious! 

Re: What's on your plate?
