Moussaka is predominantly an egg plant (aubergine) based dish popular in the Eastern Mediterranean.  Consisting mainly of minced lamb and veggies. It is almost low carb cooked the traditional way. The only substitution made here is the topping – traditionally, white or Béchamel sauce is used. Using ricotta cheese as a replacement gets rid of the only high carb ingredient!

Pulses are 20 to 25% protein by weight.  Studies have also shown that consuming pulses can result in more stable blood glucose levels after meals.  For people trying to lose weight, pulses are high in fibre and protein, low in fat and moderate in calories. One cup of cooked lentils or dry peas contains about half of the daily fibre recommendation for adults. Foods higher in fibre content usually help people feel “full” or satiated at mealtime.  Please note that legumes (lentils and chickpea's) are only permissable during phase 3 of Atkins.
