WomenHeart & Eggplant Lasagna

The best simple healthy eggplant lasagna recipe - This easy, vegetarian, low carb, gluten free veggie lasagna is meatless (but meat can be added if you want) and is perfect for a Whole30, paleo, or keto diet. It's made with ricotta and baked to bring all the flavors together. The recipe calls for eggplant, but you could substitute zucchini instead.

My baby girl, Gracie, is my heart. She's my heart and my joy and much of what is precious to me.

I have a hand full of risk factors for heart disease, and I watch them carefully. I don't want those risk factors to turn into less time with my baby girl. There's nothing more important to me.

WomenHeart

WomenHeart: The National Coalition for Women with Heart Disease helps me to keep track. According to the WomenHeart website:

Founded in 1999, WomenHeart's mission is to improve the health and quality of life of women living with or at risk of heart disease. Through our programs and services, WomenHeart raises awareness about the importance of prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of women's heart disease.

WomenHeart empowers women living with heart disease to manage their own heart health and to help all women take charge of their heart health.

The Heart Truth

Have you seen the Red Dress campaign? WomenHeart does that through an organization called The Heart Truth. It's all about raising our awareness of heart health and lowering our risk factors for heart disease.

The Joy of Eating

Moms are great at taking care of our families, but WomenHeart reminds us to take care of ourselves, too. We can get practical tips at The Joy of Eating.

And, because it's my new favorite cookbook (and because I'm now an old pro at lasagna-making), I want to share another recipe with you from the WomenHeart's All Heart Family Cookbook. I'll be making this when eggplant is plentiful this summer.

  1. That eggplant lasagna does look good! Here I plant eggplant and sell it at farmers’ market…but have never eaten it myself…maybe this year I will! I love sandwiches and the crunchy turkey & ham baguette loos wonderful!

  3. The Turkey Cutlets with Avocado Salsa recipe sounds like a winner–if I make it though I’ll have to omit the cumin! Everyone in my family thinks it’s yucky 🙁
