First up, one of my favorite things to make, especially when the produce is fresh....eggplant pizza! It is really delicious and you feel like you are eating bread (sorta) but you aren't. I top it with pasta sauce, cheese, and any veggies/meat I have around the house. I made this the other night when Matt had to work, so I got to eat them for dinner and lunch the next two days (he was jealous).
|pre oven....looking mighty tasty!!|
I bake them at 350 for about 20 minutes, depending on how thick I cut the eggplant. The eggplant should be nice and tender before you take them out of the oven. Mmmm.
At my last appointment my doctor mentioned getting a lot of protein in my diet. She told me that quinoa has a lot of protein and is similar to a grain, so I feel like I'm eating a carb, and it's good for me! When I was at the store on Saturday I bought a package of quinoa, as well as a quinoa/brown rice mix. Considering Matt wasn't sure he would like it, we tried the quinoa/brown rice mix with dinner the other night. Matt thought it was a little different, but not horrible. I was sold! I loved it and would eat it every day. It is a great substitute for a rice or pasta side, and much healthier for baby.
