Eggplant with Sundried Tomato & Mushroom Stuffing | A Unique Vegan Stuffing for the Holidays!



Eggplant is known to have great amounts of fiber (which is excellent for digestion), folate, potassium and manganese, as well as vitamins C, K, and B6, phosphorus, copper, thiamin, niacin, magnesium, and pantothenic acid.

Another study found that anthocyanin phytonutrients in the skin of eggplants, called nasunin, is a potent antioxidant that zaps free radicals and protects the lipids (fats) in brain cell membranes from damage.

National Diabetes Education Program of NIH, Mayo Clinic and American Diabetes Association recommend eggplant-based diet as a choice for management of type 2 diabetes due to the  phenolic-linked antioxidant activity and α-glucosidase inhibitory potential of eggplant which could reduce hyperglycemia-induced pathogenesis.  Further research is being conducted.

Thank you for visiting my channel! My name is Monique.

Daytime Vegan is a lifestyle that shows you how to create better balance in your eating habits. I want to offer a less militant, friendlier, path to eating plant-based instead of perpetuating the “all or nothing” approach that many vegans have. Switching just one of your daily meals to a plant-based meal helps your health, the animals, and the environment more than you know! Every little bit counts!

All of my recipes are vegan, gluten free, and soy free. I eat this way due to my history of ovarian cysts and endometriosis. You can learn more about how I used plant foods to get rid of my ovarian cysts by clicking this link —-

I’m an open minded vegan who is trying to encourage you all to include more plant-based recipes into your daily meals. On this channel I’ll share What I Ate Today videos, Recipe Videos, and whatever else I can think of!

Enjoy and please subscribe if you genuinely enjoy my content!
