Telling someone that a food or dish is low carb, healthy, low calorie, fat free, even paleo is ‘the kiss of death’ for many people. Folks are afraid of ‘diet food', especially anything bariatric and sometimes wont even taste your food.

This simple two minute dish is easy to eat at any bariatric stage, contains high quality high protein, is low/no carb and TASTES LIKE LASAGNA! Do not be intimidated that we call it a crepe, its just an egg. Okay, so this is technically a Manicotti. Enjoy.

This version eliminates the 'frying' step, instead the eggplant is roasted, which concentrates the flavor. While not traditional, I love the added ricotta 'lasagna' layer that serves as the protein. I like the eggplant to shine, so I do not add too many herbs or spices. A wonderful dish!

Sheet Pan Meal: Spatchcocked Game Hen

Sheet Pan Meal: Spatchcocked Game Hen

This is also called Spatchcocking, I don't know WHY, but it is! I put the game hen on my cutting board and with my big chefs knife cut through the breast bone and then flatten it out. You can also ask them to do it for you at the meat counter in your supermarket. I love Cornish Game Hens, they are super juicy.
