Eggplants are an excellent food to include in your healthy eating plan when you want to lose pregnancy weight.
Low in calories and high in fibre, these earthy vegetables taste great when baked, added to healthy stir fries or in casseroles and stews.
Featuring mushrooms, eggplant, and fresh cherry tomatoes, this recipe for Healthy Stuffed Eggplant gives you a few servings of vegetables in one hit, and will prove popular with partners and kids alike.
