So I’m going to start out this post by saying YUM!
The other day, I found a gorgeous eggplant in the grocery store and I had to buy it. Having no real recipe in mind, I picked up some other delicious-looking ingredients and decided to make a sort of deconstructed paleo eggplant parmesan (without the cheese).
What resulted was extremely tasty and filling, which is ideal when your goal is weight loss.

I’ve found that this recipe typically gives you at least four healthy dinners, depending on how big your eggplant is. For each serving, I generally add two slices of eggplant and a few spoonfuls of the tomato mixture.
Although I call this an easy paleo recipe for dinner, this meal makes an amazing breakfast too! Just heat a serving of eggplant, and then add a topping such as a sunny-side up egg. It’s totally delicious.
For those of you wondering about the nutritional value of eggplant, here’s a quote from Dr. Axe — founder of Exodus Health Center:
Eggplant is a vegetable with a lot to offer: a high amount of antioxidants, special phytonutrients including phenolic compounds, flavonoids such as nasunin, and numerous vitamins and minerals too. All of these eggplant nutrition benefits come at a low calorie count of only 35 calories per cup, thanks to eggplant’s high fiber and water content. (Dr. Axe.com, Eggplant Nutrition, Benefits & Recipes)
What’s more, studies have shown that cooking your eggplant helps release even more antioxidant effects and beneficial properties (1).
Some people report digestive upset when eating eggplant and other nightshade (Solanaceae) veggies such as peppers and tomatoes. Studies have yet to definitively prove any known sensitivities (2). If this is your first time eating eggplant, you may want to watch for any potential symptoms.
