Slow Cooker Eggplant Curry

Hey ya’ll 🙂 How’s your day going? My has been a little strange so far. It started with a recovery Insanity workout (is that an oxymoron? Haha. It really was relaxing though) and a doc’s appt. Nothing like being poked and prodded on a Thursday morning (just a check-up but it wasn’t a party if ya know what I mean).

My reward:

bfast cookie

An almond butter and jelly bfast cookie 😀

I munched it on the way to the doc’s and it was pretty glorious.

-1/2 C oats

-1/2 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior

-1 T mesquite

-1 hefty T almond butter

-1 T polaner spread

-almond milk

-1/2 banana


I have to share the recipe with you guys for last night’s eggplant curry because it pretty much rocked my face off 🙂

I have lovely leftovers for today 😀 Usually I make just enough so that we don’t have leftovers, but in cases like this, the food tastes even better the next day. Did you celebrate Indian food Wednesday??

Well I’m off to do our taxes (procrastinate much?? Haha) and then head to work.

Have a lovely Thursday!



Today’s tip: Take 10 minutes out of your busy day to STRETCH and breath deeply. Stretching is amazing for flexibility and injury prevention and.. it feels sooooo good 🙂 Every night before going to bed, I foam roll for at least 10 minutes and do a lunar flow or some stretches on the yoga mat. It’s a great way to wind down the day, decreases stress and helps protect the bod. Give it a whirl 😀

*Don’t forget, the yoga promo ends tomorrow- $25 in my OpenSky store (coupon: 5ForYoga)  Quite a few of ya’ll have bought some already, I know you’ll love them!

    Hi there, I’m going to try out your recipe–thanks so much for putting it up here for people to find!

    What size slow-cooker do you use?

    I just bought a 3.5 quart and this will be the first recipe I try in it. Looks like it will all fit fine.

    Thank you again!

    Hi Gina! I’m so excited to try this curry! Do you salt/ rinse your eggplant when you make this?

    Just wanted to let you know I found this recipe doing a Google search to figure out what to do with the eggplant I got in a farm share. My daughter and I don’t eat eggplant, my husband does but has “to be in the mood” so I haven’t learned to do much with it. I made this for him and he loved it. Thanks!

    The cookie and the eggplant dish sound really good! Nice to have found your space!

    Such a great recipe with easy ingredients I always have. I didn’t notice you are supposed to drain the tomatoes, but oh well, the sauce is great. I use home made chicken broth because I always have that in the freezer. Funny, I used to despise eggplant but now I really like it!

    An amazing recipe. I love it. Will make many times
