Delicious, Easy, Gluten Free, Vegetarian Lasagna Recipe

Broccoli_Lasagna_161This recipe is gluten free and uses sheep cheese instead of cow’s cheese, for those sensitive to cow’s dairy. I found the cheese at Whole Foods and used Tinkyada lasagna noodles.  I have tried several vegetarian lasagna recipes over the years, but this is our family’s favorite and by far the easiest one to make. If cow’s dairy is not a problem, parmesan cheese can be used instead of the Manchego cheese and Mozzarella cheese for the topping. It is delicious and can be doubled to serve a larger group (using standard size lasagna pan). I have served it at Super Bowl parties in the past and it was well received.  Serves 4-6.

Eat Fat, Lose Weight

th (73)The conventional wisdom recommending individuals decrease calories, increase exercise and then wait for the pounds to fall off is incorrect. A calorie is not a calorie. When one eats sugar or carbohydrates that quickly convert to sugar, fat is produced in the body. In contrast, if one eats healthy fats, the body feels more satiated and the fat eaten converts to energy. While reducing calories matters, the type of calories eaten is an important variable.
