Often served as an appetizer, I prefer it as a salad served along with the entree. Use smaller eggplants for a sweeter flavor.

MindyJanuary 24, 2012I am a firm believer in all that you expsers .. Natural, natural, natural all the way!! I have a neti pot, and for my kids I have a homeopathic cold syrup (which I very rarily use anyway). I am constantly spraying saline moisturizing spray up our noses in between. Water, lots of herbal tea (Traditional Medicinal or Yogi brand usually), sleep, etc. But I am definetly going to also try your suggestions with the oils . I work in a hospital so I too, have to keep the germs at bay as much as possible. Thanks Jennifer for your posting and suggestions! Have a terrific day and someday I hope to meet you in person and pick your brain on everything involving living healthy. Cheers!Mindy xo
