"Let your food be your medicine, and your medicine be your food." Hippocrates. Over two thousand years ago those words were uttered by the Father of medicine, they stand good today. Never has the food we eat had greater influence over our lives. Traditional foods and healthy eating has been usurped by the multinational food giants. Do not become a victim of poor dietary information. Eat the food we evolved from, the less man is involved, the healthier the food.

Lowcarb Luxury Lasagne, lowcarb food at it‘s best !
Ingredients serves two 250 grams ground/minced beef
1 aubergine/egg plant 1 red onion
A splash of olive oil
300 ml of double cream
One 400 grams tin of chopped tomatoes
A cup of fresh grated cheddar cheese
Half a red pepper chopped
Half a green pepper chopped
A handful of button mushrooms
Salt, pepper and mixed herbs to taste
Fry the finely chopped onion with the olive oil in a large frying pan, Americans call this a skillet I believe. When soft add the minced beef and brown. Add the chopped peppers, mushrooms and chopped tomatoes. Allow to come off the simmer and add the double cream, and stir well. Cut the aubergine into thin slices around 6mm/ around a quarter inch thick. Layer up, one layer of aubergine and one layer of the beef mix, in your oven proof dish, adding some salt, mixed herbs and pepper. Place in oven set at 200c for around thirty minutes. Remove and cover with grated cheddar cheese. Place back in the oven and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
A truly great meal, very easy and lowcarb, enjoy !
