I love eggplant. When I went to Florence, Italy they grilled it and you in on just about everything. Here is one I would like to try:
silviascucina.net/2016/01/04
/chickpea-
and-aubergine-warm-salad/


Ingredients, serves 4 as a side (vegan, gluten free)

1 large aubergine (eggplant), cut into 2cm cubes

1 garlic clove, skin on and bashed with the back of a knife

4 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon of paprika

1 tin of chickpeas, well drained

salt and pepper for seasoning

parsley leaves and nasturtium to scatter on top

YUMMY!

I have tried kale and much prefer spinach, even in a smoothie. I am glad, as the article explains, that spinach is just as good as kale, although they are different.

Hi!, Resmarie emoticon

Mediterranean Diet is in first place? Yay! I think that is very cool!

I often have wondered why the MD is not more popular. Maybe it's just because I don't know anyone that's on this diet? I'm not sure.
I love the MD. Even when I have a cold and lose my appetite, I enjoy looking at the food. It's very colorful and appealing.

One thing I don't do that is on the MD is drink wine. In place of wine I practice Transendental Meditation. It may not have the exact same effect as wine, but I think it's close enough. emoticon

I have had to alter the MD just slightly to accommodate my pre-diabetes. But the slight change is so small I don't think it negatively effects the result. I continue to lose usually 1 lb a week. I have 28 lbs left to lose. I do give a major part of my weight loss to the MD emoticon

Resmarie, what an accomplishment losing all that weight!! Congratulations to you!! emoticon

Have a great rest of the weekend!!
