  • 1 medium eggplant
  • Kosher salt
  • All-purpose flour, for dredging
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons extra- virgin olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 2 large plum tomatoes, diced
  • 2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • Shredded fresh basil, for topping

    I am 81 like simple recipes. I don’t eat out. I don’t eat fried, acidic food. Have a throat and stomach problem and use food processor after or before eating. I use organic foods and also pot grow my own herbs, tomatoes, peppers.

    Read “Grain Brain” by Permutter

    Throw away the cholesterol and blood pressure meds and you will feel better.
    Cut out Gluten, bread, cut the carbs down to diabetic portions or less, eat butter, meat, eggs, and good fats. Try avocados. Get some exercise. I have done all of the above. The second week of December 2014 I weighed 195-196lbs this morning, I weighed 197.8lbs. Also check out John Bergman youtube “the truth about blood pressure and cholesterol. my 2cents
