Food: Roasted Vegetable Ratatouille.

Calling all Vegetarians!

This is a must. You must add this to your monthly rotation.

And I have to tell you this. 1 cup of this gorgeous creation is 110 calories. I wouldn’t lie. I mean I don’t lie about serious things like this. 110 calories, folks. You could eat 2 cups if you are crazy like that. and like me, since I ate 2.8 cups.

You can’t go wrong with eggplant, red peppers, zucchini and capers! Look at those rich colors.

Speechless.
