We all know and love eggplant Parmesan, but there are so many more delicious eggplant recipes out there just waiting for you to try them. The fruit is actually super versatile (yes, it’s a fruit!) — you can fry, stuff, bake or grill it, and each application gives the eggplant a unique flavor. And if you’re experimenting with vegetarian recipes or vegan recipes, the meaty texture and mutable flavor of eggplant makes it easy to sub for meat in a range of recipes.But — we know — there are some eggplant skeptics out there. We hear you! If cooked improperly, eggplant can take on a texture that has been described as “spongy” or a flavor that’s bland. Well, these tasty eggplant recipes are the perfect thing to convert any eggplant into a mouthwatering meal, with undeniably delicious options like caponata flatbread, eggplant tostadas and eggplant fries (yes, fries!). When roasted, eggplant takes on an almost creamy interior and crisp exterior, or, when grilled, it becomes smoky and charred. A punchy vinaigrette will brighten up eggplant’s flavor! With so many ways to cook eggplant, there’s guaranteed to be at least one recipe everyone around your dinner table will love.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
