Oh and check out the health benefits:
Red peppers are loaded with vitamin C. They are an excellent source of minerals, vitamins (especially B6), carotene and the antioxidant lycopene. High heat has negative effects on these phytonutrients, therefore low heat over short cooking time is recommended.
Red chili peppers contain high amounts of vitamin C and carotene, are a good source of B vitamins (particularly B6), potassium, magnesium and iron. Vitamin C can significantly increase the uptake of iron from plant sources.
Eggplant (aubergine) is an excellent source of B vitamins, folate, manganese, potassium and dietary fiber. It helps reduce cholesterol and block the formation of free radicals.
Sunflower oil is rich in mono- and polyunsaturated fats and has more vitamin E (antioxidant) than olive oil.

Here's a pic of today's lunch. I don't have a gluten intolerance that I'm aware of, but I like spelt bread right now. It's fun, nutty and pretty hearty. There's avo on there, turkey and chicken, and of course sprinkles of my other latest obsession -nuts and seeds in mason jars! I threw on some chia seeds, pepitas, and "silvered" almonds, as Aaron mocks me for always saying it wrong. Oh and in case you're wondering I still feel damn cute every time I sprinkle joy out of the mason jars. `
