I had a hard time deciding what to do for dinner tonight, it was one of those nothing sounds good kind of nights. I rummaged through the freezer and discovered Trader Joe’s Eggplant Cutlets, that was on the edge spinach that needed to used and some Classico Fire Roasted Garlic Pasta Sauce. A idea came to mind of stacked eggplant parmesan.
To add some flavor to the spinach I grabbed some of the Chili Olive Oil we got in Italy. Such great flavor!
I baked the cutlets at 425 for 12 minutes, wilted some spinach with some chili olive oil and then added smoked mozzarella to cutlets and topped with the pasta sauce. Much better than anything I have ever had in a restaurant.
3 Eggplant Cutlets
2 Small Slices Smoked Mozzarella
1/4 cup of Classico Fire Roasted Tomato and Garlic Sauce
Half a bag of Spinach
Few Splashes of Chili Olive Oil
Bake Cutlets for 12-14 minutes at 425
Top with Cheese and Bake for an additional minute
Layer Cutlets with Sauce and Spinach
I had been searching for the perfect yoga bag that would hold my mat and have enough room so I could bring a change of clothes and shower items. My search has ended! I found the Jansport Duffel on Amazon and it is the perfect yoga bag. It had free shipping and only took 4 business days to get here. I love online shopping! It has straps in the front so you can slip your mat through and then tighten the straps.
It has a large main pocket for shoes, yoga clothes, toiletries, my water bottle, yogitoges towel and hand towel.
It is small enough to fit in the locker at my toga studio but big enough to get a change of clothes in if you are showering there or at least clothes and shoes to put on over your yoga clothes. So you don’t look like me coming out in short yoga shorts and tall suede books like I did a few months ago If you are in the market for a yoga bag check out this Jansport Bag, I love it!
I purchased this bag on my own, no one contacted me about it. Just an fyi
It is 58 degrees in my office this morning, brrr! I am on cup of tea number three to try and get warm. Building maintenance has been in a few times to look at the heat but there doesn’t seem to be anything wrong (that they can find). So we are cold in the morning and warm by the afternoon. I have a baggy of Kashi Cinnamon Harvest cereal that I am enjoying too.
Yesterday I almost took a picture of the lunch room garbage because there were no fewer than 5 Lean Cuisine boxes in the garbage. That makes me sad, I want to see everyone in my office eating healthy and real food. I kindly suggested trying a Kashi meal or making a salad and sandwich at home in the morning.
I understand the appeal of quick and easy but there are so many things you can make quickly at home. I will admit that in my early 20′s I thought those meals were healthy and that was a good choice… until I read what was in them. Lean Cuisine must have some amazing marketing that people think those meals are healthy, the ingredient list is a mile long and the sodium levels are quite high. I know its not my job to say anything but how can I help them make better choices?
