Easy Eggplant recipe, it's in the oven a bit but your time cooking is very short.

Bake eggplant slices and zucchini cut long ways with a little cooking spray and salt and pepper for about 30-35 minutes at 400 degrees.

Place zucchini pieces on top of eggplant slices
Add a little of each ingredient to each eggplant slice:

marinara sauce (one with little sugar, and processed ingredients (not ragu)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
cherry tomato per egg plant slice

Put back in oven at 400 degrees F.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese is bubbly.

Just to add to his post, here are ingredients that will make it under 300 calories per serving. The marinara has no added sugar or preservatives but is quite tasty, also, a substitute for pasta noodles with either the kelp noodles or Shiritaki noodles will cut carbs by as much as 75% and calories by at least half. Both noodles have same texture and very mild flavor. Meaning you won't taste any difference since all the flavor comes from eggplant , cheese, and sauce

Rent a dehumidifier for best outcome. At minimum keep air moving with fans. Mold needs warmth and humidity to grow, so lower AC temperature. If you want to avoid using chemicals, vinegar kills mold. you can put some in a sprayer and spray around base of walls so it will mix with any water in Sheetrock and behind baseboards. You know I have lots of experience with this,

Maybe because I'm 21 and was spending off a part time papa john's income at the time, and my friend who was with me was 20? Ever heard of pregaming then going out to bars? Saves you quite a bit of $.

Oh wait, at 21 you didn't have any friends to go out with so you don't know what it's like. I get it now.

So you're saying poor people drink before going out to drink so they can save money? Really? Don't you have parents? Me and all my friends had credit cards since the beginning of high school and during college to go have fun, eat at nice restaurants, and party as long as we did well in school. We weren't allowed to work bc they were worried it would be a distraction from school. Considering every single one of us had six figure incomes by age 26, seems they were spot on. Actually the only time I got some grief was junior year when we all took a trip to Ibiza and the monthly bill came in a little over $5k.

So basically you're saying you are port and your family is just as poor, got it.

Which bread do you prefer?

I've been eating raw vegan for almost past year, but will be moving to more of a paleo diet when the that year ends next week, so it's been a while since I had bread or cheese. The naan bread is thicker and tastier, but you can have almost twice as much lavash for same calories. I would take the lavash and cook it a little first, then put sauce and cheese and finish it off a few more minutes in toaster oven and it basically comes out just like a pizza cracker.

You can also soft boil some eggs, mash them up with a tiny amount of real butter and spread over the toasted lavash and it's like eggs and toast (crackers).

The naan bread from whole foods brand also comes in garlic flavored which was great for the pizzas and probably the tastiest way to make them. It's taken quite a while to find healthy options of common food since most of it is loaded with additives and preservatives and found most of whole foods fresh stuff is usually free of any of this. They have a sweeter pizza sauce that I haven't tried, but the marinara sauce I use is pretty awesome.

I got a bunch of recipes and stuff I can share if you want help finding healthier versions for anything else. I made this raw vegan fudge last week that was super tasty using cacao nibs, medijool dates, cocunut oil, and almond butter. If you never tried medijool dates, they are just like caramel and worth a try to satisfy sweet craving.

I ate pizza last night. Felt like a cow, but damn it was good. I know I can't deny myself all the time so I am trying not to be too hard on myself.

You can make a pretty healthy one using Naan or Lavash bread. use the marinara sauce from whole foods, some fresh mozzarella cheese and a little basil and you have a much healthier version. I would also use Paul Prudhomme pizza and pasta seasoning.

Result is much healthier lower calorie, no gmo, preservatives or additives that taste awesome and won't ruin you daily calorie count.

#2825252 GMO

Posted by Big A on 20 June 2014 - 02:42 AM

Didn't read every post, but my quick two cents.

To actually compare cross breeding such as how corn was produce to GMO that by definition involves using biotechnology to alter, remove or add genes, is pretty terrible understanding of facts. For example, Native Americans taking the teosinte with biggest kernel and breeding it with other biggest kernel teosinte to eventually create corn is not the same as taking a gene out of a fish and putting it in a tomato to help male it more resistant to freeze damage.

Secondly, anyone that defends what Monsanto has been doing and their seed enforcement practices has to be completely ignorant!

Also, a big part of GMO is making the crops more resistant to herbicides and pesticides so they can basically spray more of them at one time and not hurt the crop. Of course now you have a crop that has been bathes in tons more pesticides and herbicides. The worst part is Mother Nature has evolved and become resistant making even higher amounts pesticides and herbicides used. In just the past decade, we went from using about 1 million pounds of pesticides a year, to now we are using 100 million pounds a year.

#2823242 Coconut Water - Do you LOVE it or HATE it?

Posted by Big A on 18 June 2014 - 11:54 AM

I was referring to coconut oil. Not sure about water

Your info is a little outdated. Coconut oil got a bad rap back in 94 bc of its saturated fat and use in movie theater popcorn. Since then a few thing have changed about our understanding that not all fats are created equal and same with cholesterol. The sat fat in coconut oil doesn't have the same artery clogging effects as the saturated fats in meats, for example.

Secondly, when coconut oil got its bad rap back in 90's, only the refined oil with very little nutrients was tested. The newest studies, and there are many, use the virgin unrefined coconut oil. As with any fats, even with healthy fats from avocado, olive oil, coconut oil etc should all be used in moderation around 1-2 tablespoons a day limit.

My dad is a Cardiologist and Internal Medicine doctor and after barely surviving stage 4 lymphoma cancer, used a lot of alternative medicine to supplement his treatments and has been become quite educated about health through nutrition and now work and speaks for American Cancer Society. As one of their associates, he has access to all the newest scientific studies and I can sasy find you the studies on coconut oil.

Listening now. Just had to mention that last second Saint win again I see. Lol. Got to agree the times I've been to games in a Carolina the music was pretty good. Atlanta, on the other hand, is stuck in the 90's with the same lame music over and over again! Ugh!

I think I read a story like this before, must be part of Panther fans DNA

Taunting Panther's Fans Force Marine Amputee Out Of Moosehead Bar and Grill

On Sunday a U.S. Marine who lost both legs in Afghanistan was forced to leave Charlotte's Moosehead Bar and Grill along with his wife, parents and friends after another patron at the restaurant became verbally combative and the restaurant staff asked the Marine to leave.

According to the Charlotte Observer: "The incident happened after Garrett Carnes, his wife Courtney, their parents, and friends Brett and Nicole Coburn stopped at the restaurant for dinner after attending the Carolina Panthers’ game against Dallas. Several members of the party, including Garrett Carnes, were wearing Dallas Cowboys jerseys.

Coburn said that when the group reached the front door, the fan, who other patrons called Tank, was waiting for them."

Josh "Tank" Watts and friend at a Panthers game.
“He was standing at the door, and he started harassing us because of the Cowboys jerseys,” Coburn said.

He said Tank told Garrett Carnes, “Don’t use your wheelchair as a crutch.”

According to multiple accounts of the incident, Carnes told the patron – and others who were ridiculing the group for being Cowboys’ fans – that he was a veteran and had lost his legs in Afghanistan.

Members of the Carnes-Coburn party tried to “defend ourselves verbally,” Brett Coburn said.
He said Tank walked toward Carnes in a threatening way, and some other patrons stepped in to break it up.

Neilsen said his employees are trained to separate possible combatants, in an effort to defuse such situations. On Sunday, staff members asked Garrett Carnes and his party to leave, while they took Tank to another area of the restaurant."
