Eat This: Lose Weight – Righteous Ratatouille, Gastronomical Gift from the Gods

dysfunctional chef copyRighteous Ratatouille – A guilt-free gastronomical gift from the Gods.  This is a great recipe for any and all and especially for bulk eaters.  If you want to eat a lot, feel uber-full, make this and eat as much as you like!

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, finely
chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
2 small eggplants, cubed (about 2 cups)
1 small zucchini, cubed (about 1 cup)
3 cloves garlic, diced
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 can, stewed tomatoes, Italian style
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:
Heat the oil in a 4-quart sauce pot over medium heat.
Add the onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes or so.
Add both the red and yellow pepper and saute for another couple of minutes.
Toss in the eggplant cubes and cook a couple more minutes.
Add the zucchini, garlic, bay leaf and oregano.
Season with salt and pepper and continue to cook for a couple more minutes.
Now, add the tomatoes and simmer for 40 minutes, uncovered.
Make pasta.  Try Brown Rice Pasta.  Trick is to rinse it like mad after cooked, lest it gets too “heavy.”  Otherwise, a fantastic alternative to whole wheat pasta!

Mantra:
When eating fruits and vegetables, I have been known to say, with great enthusiasm and buckets of gratitude to the healthy whole food universe, “I can feel the vitamins and minerals rushing through my body!  I feel energized, I feel healthy, I feel whole.”  Or I ask people:  I say, “Can you feel the vitamins and minerals rushing through your body?”  Gives one pause for thought whereupon one can reflect, “What am I putting into my sacred vessel, my body?”

So…repeat after me, or create your own mantra that fits you!
“I can feel the vitamins and minerals rushing through my body.  I feel healthy, energized and wholly happy!”
