Eggplant: Tasty and Nutrient-Packed!

Hey folks! Let’s chat about a true food gem – the wonderful eggplant! You might know it as aubergine, but no matter the name, it’s a true star in the kitchen and a friend to our bodies.

This purple wonder is a low-cal, nutrient-rich veggie. It’s a cool friend who doesn’t bring unnecessary baggage – it’s low in calories and brings lots of fiber, vitamins, and minerals to the party!

Digestive Helper

Fiber is eggplant’s superpower. It aids our digestion, keeps our gut happy, and prevents those annoying bloated days. Plus, fiber keeps us full, helping us make peace with our scales!

Cellular Protector

The antioxidants in eggplants are like tiny bodyguards for our cells, fighting off harmful invaders. Anthocyanins, the stuff that gives eggplants their vibrant color, are especially good at this, helping to protect our hearts and brains!


Want to keep your meals hearty but healthy? Eggplant’s your go-to! Its high water and fiber content make it filling but not fattening. It’s the ultimate sidekick for those looking to manage their weight without compromising on taste.

Taking Care of Your Heart

Eggplant loves our hearts! Its mix of fiber, potassium, and vitamins is like a love letter to our cardiovascular system, helping keep our blood pressure and cholesterol levels in check.

Sweet Sugar Balancer

Eggplants are also sweet (pun intended!) for managing our blood sugar levels, making them a great friend for those with diabetes.

How to Enjoy Eggplant

Eggplant is versatile – grill it, bake it, throw it in a stir-fry or turn it into a delicious dip like baba ganoush. It’s all about having fun in the kitchen!

We like to grill it with our Sweet & Spicy Cayenne BBQ sauce. Once it’s grilled you can puree it in the food processor and enjoy it as a dip or stack it with gorgonzola cheese. Wow!

It’s easy, check it out!
