TIP OF THE WEEK: Eggplant is loaded with nutrients to lower heart disease risk, help with blood clotting, and fight inflammation and oxidative stress. But some people shy away from it because it's too bitter. If that's the case, try "sweating" the eggplant before cooking- that means salting the slices and letting it sit for about an hour before cooking. Not only will this remove the bitterness, but it will make your eggplant more flavorful. Enjoy!
