I didn’t always like eggplant. It wasn’t until I was a little older and began experimenting with less-common foods that I started to develop a fondness for this vegetable.
While eggplant isn’t the most well-loved vegetable, it certainly has health benefits that would make it worth your while to try to include it in your diet.
Eggplant is low in calories at just 35 calories a cup, but is rich in fibre and has zero fat. Sounds good? Not just that, it also contains phyto nutrients that help to improve your blood circulation and nourish your brain.
Excited to start trying eggplant now? I bet you are.
