I've mentioned before that I generally like to keep it vegetarian at dinner time most nights.
Ever since I was younger I've always had trouble sleeping on a full stomach. I would much rather be hungry than overly full when it's bedtime.
And it turns out there is some reason for that.
Heavy meals, like those containing a lot of meat, take up a lot of the body's energy and resources to digest.
When we're sleeping, the body likes to use most of its energy and resources to clean everything out: get rid of toxins, replenish energy stores, repair muscle damage, restore neural connections, re-balance hormones, and so many more things.
Since digestion uses up to 70% of our bodies' energy and resources even while we're awake, I like to leave my body plenty of resources while I'm sleeping to get everything in tip top shape for the next day.
Because when I don't sleep well, I'm not happy.
So I like to find yummy vegetarian recipes that I can try at night, especially those that will fill me up but won't keep me weighed down for several hours just before bedtime.
This is a great recipe using mushrooms, eggplant and potatoes. It tastes great, it's nutritious, and it's not too heavy to eat at night time.
It's a pretty small recipe, for 1-2 people, so it can easily be doubled or tripled to make more, especially if you want to have extra to eat over the next few days!
