Broiled Eggplant with Goat Cheese and Tomato
Following is an eggplant recipe my wife Margaret made recently. Eggplant is low in calories and filling. It is not famous for high nutrient sources but can help keep your calorie intake down. It has a meaty texture and the skin is purple so there are some antioxidants present.
- Take One Eggplant-slice it in 1/4 inch slices
- Set broiler on high.
- Brush olive or peanut oil on one side (broiled, top surface) Salt and pepper lightly. Broil for 4-5 minutes.
- Turn slices over, again brush lightly with oil, salt and pepper lightly and broil an additional 4-5 minutes.
- Add crumbled goat cheese, chopped herb such as basil or even sundried tomatoes and place in oven another 1-2 minutes until cheese melts.
Enjoy, doctor tasted and doctor approved!

Recently Dr. Kordonowy commented in the News Press and their website video series regarding the roll out October one of the new health care insurance exchange. Click this link to see a segment of that interview. This is the next major phase of the Patient Protection (PP removed and now known only) as the Affordable Care Act.
Most people think their primary doctor will be at the hospital for them when they are admitted. Under today's healthcare system/model that simply isn't true. This is why I am now offering my Inpatient Advocate Service TM program to local primary care physicians. If you are aware of friends who you think would want their doctors to offer this service please ask them to let their doctor know this. Have them visit www.cypress-medical.com to learn about this program.
