If you are looking for a vegetable that is low in calories and high in fiber content, then you found it. The eggplant is a common food found in stir fries and Italian dishes and it is one of the healthiest vegetables you could enjoy. A typical one cup serving of fresh eggplant offers only 30 calories, but a whopping two grams of fiber (which is high considering the amount of calories). Consider having eggplant as part of a side dish to your dinner or add it to a stir fry to help add bulk to your meal. Not only will it help you to maintain how much you eat, but it can help you to reduce the total amount of cholesterol you have so you can stay healthy.
