I am very new to clean eating. The only vegetables I would eat were corn and potatoes and broccoli if it had cheese or ranch dressing on it. But for the last month I have been really focusing on the clean eating and experimenting on what I like and your website and youtube videos have played a huge part in my success. I am a visual person so your 101 videos are literally a God send. I had the Eggplant Pizza Rounds tonight and they were so good. I have never had or made eggplant before so I made a few minor mistakes but I am not a fan 🙂 Thank you so much for what you do 🙂 By the way…I have lost 8 lbs in 3 1/2 weeks :):)
Wow!! Good for you Cheryl:) I am so happy to know that my videos and recipes are helping you along on your journey to eating better. Keep up the great work. xoxo
I’m not an eggplant fan but I’m expanding my food choices to include eggplants and since this is sorta a pizza it bee much caught my eye! My question however is–if I don’t have a baking rack, could I cook the eggplants another way?
You can place them right on baking sheet coated with olive oil, it will still get the job done.
i was just wondering, what could be served with this to make it a complete meal?
We like to serve it with a big fat salad. IF you wanted a starch you an make some quinoa, brown rice, or brown rice pasta on the side.
