All Lean and Green meals are gluten and dairy free.
Benefits of Eggplant and Cauliflower
Eggplant contains potassium and fiber. And at just 25 calories and less than 1 gram of fat per serving, it’s a guilt-free food. Eggplant has antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which help protect your cells against damage. It’s also high in natural plant chemicals called polyphenols, which helps cells do a better job of processing sugar if you have diabetes. To get your full cup and a half of vegetables, our Chef’s mix cauliflower rice into the ground meat.
Cauliflower is an easy to digest vegetable and contains vitamins and minerals including folate, vitamin A & C. It’s also a good source of dietary fiber. Cauliflower can also improve immune function and lower blood pressure. Although it can be bland when unseasoned, our chef’s add season it well. It is definitely a tasty addition to the Eggplant Casserole.
