The Eggplant Parmigana Stack is best served with a crisp garden salad. For a Heartier meal add any Roast or Vegetarian Meatloaf or any variation of lentils,beans, quinoa and rice. I prefer it as a light meal with fresh crispy Greek salad.

4 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, crushed

black cracked pepper and salt

2 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped

2 cups cheddar cheese, grated

1 ½ cup favourite pasta sauce or make your own

September may mark the return of Autumn and some harvests slowing down but it’s also loaded with fresh Autumn and late Summer produce.

Vegetables

Beans, Beetroot, Bok Choy, Carrots, Avocado, Chard, Cilantro, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Fennel, Lettuce, Peas, Peppers, Radishes, Turnips, Squash, Tomatoes

Fruit

Lemons, Raspberries, Strawberries

There are so many wonderful meals to make from this harvest. There is also a lot of canning and pickling to save produce for the winter months ahead. Cooking pot the iPhone App has wonderful recipes for cold and warm Salads just looking at the tomatoes, beetroot, turnips and squash. YUM! Vegetarian or Vegan Ratatouille and Eggplant Parmigana Stack come to mind as does Kimchee of all sorts. If you’ve ever made our Double-decker Pizza you’ll know what I’m on about and don’t forget the sliced avocado on top!

How do I ever go back!! In-fact I think my taste-buds have had too much of the “Good Stuff” and I begin to feel the difference when I go out. Unless of course I’m fortunate enough to Enjoy Organic!!

OK let’s quickly look at Pickling, Fermenting and Canning. I think these topics deserve a lot more. In the next few posts I will endeavour to give them some justice. This month however there are heaps of cucumbers in season ready to pickle. When we look at fermenting, fruit are the way to go to give beautiful flavour to Kombucha, Mulled Wine or Mead. This September Strawberries and Raspberries make wonderful jams and spreads where the their wonderful flavours are locked in to last.

Do you find yourself eating whatever you can grab from the nearest take-out or coffee stop with yet another coffee? Do you blame yourself and feel guilty afterwards? Don’t worry you’re not alone!!

It’s not worth blaming yourself or anyone else. Today you can begin to move forward into a better eating habit. All it takes is your will to make small changes in lifestyle in exchange for massive health gains. All it takes is a few little changes and there’s always help at your fingertips.

The first thing to do is ditch the take-out unless you order fresh green salad with grilled fish. There’s a choice right there!, and it’s yours to make. You have the power of choice! How will you use it? Do you choose to buy that drive through burger, woof it down and then deal with a spout of indigestion? Next stop the pharmacy for some indigestion tabs?

Your other option would be to cook a couple of bigger meals and refrigerate of freeze whatever is left over. How does Potato Crusted Three Cheese Pie sound or vegan Chickpea Curry or Killer Kidney Beans sound or Lasagne or Roast Chicken in the crock-pot? These are just a few favourites available on Cooking Pot the iPhone App and they all have the same things in common. They are Quick and Easy, can be Stored, Super Healthy and Simply Delicious!

Your other option would be meals with super speedy cooking times like Stir Fry, Noodles, Fish or Salad with Crusty Bread. On many occasions when working long hours I have gone into the supermarket picked up a bag of slaw veggies, cracked some eggs, and made a healthy meal in under 5 minutes. If I’m hungry than I add noodles. Fish, steak or eggs and salad are all meals under 10 minutes. Some of these can be found on Cooking Pot the iPhone App too. Try it! Your skin will thank you for it.

Wow! I didn’t even get into breakfast or lunch or good old fashioned sleep!! I do, however think this post is getting a bit long. So Please, please get into your kitchen and make your skin sing. If your skin looks good on the outside you must look good on the inside too and that’s where it counts!!
