Hermiones Mom's Journal, 05 February 2018

I'm still here. Because I have to eat less protein and somewhat more carbs thanks to kidney stones, but I don't want to upend my low glycemic approach, I'm continuing to put out a lot of effort to fill up my plate with veggies. Last night I roasted two small eggplants. I split them lengthwise and took out some of the big clumps of seeds. Meanwhile, in a skillet I softened a sweet onion and a red sweet pepper, mixed in some Italian seasoning and garlic season salt, and then added about 2/3 pound chicken Italian sausage and a can of Italian plum tomatoes. When everything was fully cooked, I filled the half eggplants with the sauce, topped them with shredded lactose-free mozzarella, and put them under the oven broiler. It was delicious. And there was plenty of sauce left over, so I cooked up some zoodles tonight and had no-carb spaghetti for dinner. There's still another serve of the sauce left. It was really declicious. I'm right on target calorie wise for the day, but I'm sure I'll have some fruit later on. Yum. I think I'm getting myself back together.

There is a Greek recipe, very similar to yours, called Melitzanes Papoutsakia which you will often see on Greek menus written as "Little Shoes" 🙂
