About my Blog

I was extremely skeptical of this diet until my reproductive endocrinologist suggested I do it since nothing else had worked to allow me to ovulate in 9 years. I started ovulating immediately after doing the 40 days of Phase 2 and got pregnant within 2 months! Not to mention I lost tons of weight too! This diet also allowed me to lose the baby weight.

HcG Diet Recipe Phase 3 P3: Eggplant Parmesan

2 T salt
1 large eggplant, sliced into 3/4"
1 1/2 C almond meal
2 eggs
1 can organic tomato paste
1 T Italian seasoning
1 C water
2 C mozzarella cheese, shredded
1/2 C Parmesan, shredded

Preheat oven to 375°.

Salt both sides of eggplant slices and allow to drain in a colander 45 min to 1 hour. Brush off excess salt and pat dry with a paper towel. Using a fork blend the eggs well in one bowl. In another bowl, place the almond meal. Coat each eggplant slice with egg then with almond meal. In a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, cook eggplant until golden on both sides.

In a bowl, mix tomato paste, seasoning & water. Pour 1/4 to 1/2 C in the bottom of a baking pan coating the bottom. Layer with cooked eggplant slices, then mozzarella & Parmesan, and repeat, ending with the cheeses.

Bake for 20-25 minutes then broil for a few minutes. I got a little overzealous with broiling, so watch it carefully! Serves 4.
