SUCCESS! It’s pretty hard to screw up eggplant, though. This is definitely one of the favorite dishes I make.
You should make it too! It’s easy peasy.
- preheat the oven to 350, then slice up an eggplant into 1/4 of inch thick rounds
- dip them in an egg wash, fry them in non stick cooking spray on medium
- spread half the slices in a square pan, then pour a little marinara over each of the slices, and layer with goat cheese, parmesan, mozzarella, and cheddar (or really whatever you have a hankering for!)
- Next, layer the other half of slices on top, and repeat with the sauce and cheese.
- Pop in the oven for 25 minutes, and take out your delicious dinner!
I needed something sweet, so I had
half a box a few of Annie’s Bunny Grahams:
After consuming this meal, I noticed that I didn’t have one “meat meal” today. I’ve experimented with vegetarianism before, but have always gone back to meat because it made my body do weird things. For example, the first time I switched back to eating meats is because I noticed my hair was shedding a heck of a lot more than normal. I’m not sure if this had to do with not eating meat, but when I went back to meat, it stopped.
After my second trip to vegetarianism, I noticed I was getting canker sores in my mouth a lot, so I switched back. Again, never could find the answer to if the two were a causal correlation, but it stopped when I switched back.
Perhaps I just wasn’t getting enough protein. Maybe now that I’m more educated about ways vegetarians can get enough protein I’ll try again some day. For example, now I eat the crap out of all kinds of nut butters, and I know more about tofu from reading veggies’ blogs, and I know certain
grains seeds contain protein that I didn’t know about before entering the blog world.
I’m such an animal lover, which is why I tried going meatless the first two times. Now I suppose I’m in denial whenever I’m eating meat products. I just try not to think about it. I really have a hard time eating meat that you can obviously tell
where who it came from. For now, I’ll continue being a omnivore, but I have a feeling I’ll try the vegetarian route again some day.
Have you ever thought about becoming a vegetarian? Why or why not? And if you already are, how has it affected your body?
