Baked Eggplant

You either love or dislike Eggplants.  I LOVE them. If you have not acquired a taste try this simple recipe and learn how beneficial they are to your health.

Eggplants come in all shapes and sizes. They are cooked in a variety of colorful dishes around the globe so you have many options available.

Eggplants are still in season. Eating with the seasons has natural benefits that help us to survive. Find your local farmers’ market.  I visit mine weekly.

This is a picture of an easy and healthy way to cook eggplant.  I slice thin and lay on a baking rack.  Baking reduces fat intake. You can drizzle or spray olive oil, top with minced garlic, chopped basil and sea salt.  Rotate when one side has turned golden brown.

Besides the taste, beauty, low calorie and ease of cooking, they are packeted with health benefits:

  • CHLORGENIC ACID : Fights free radicals, lowers cholesterol, protects cells from mutating into cancer and antiviral
  • FIBER : Protects against colon cancer
  • VITAMINS: A, B, C and folate
  • MINERALS: Potassium, magnesium, calcium, phosphorus

There have been many myths about eggplants ranging from aphrodisiac to having beautiful babies to going crazy if eaten. Here is my take on it. If we eat healthy, we feel healthy, and feeling this way can increase lebito. I can tell you for sure, I am crazy about eggplants!

Eating beautiful helps us to be in the present moment. Being mindful and loving what you do improves health by boosting your immune system. Now that’s what I call a great mind and body connection!
