Eggplant

The eggplant, also known as aubergine, is usually distinguishable by its signature egg-like shape and vibrant purple color. However, eggplants actually come in a variety of shapes and colors from small and oblong to long and skinny, from shades of purple to white and green. Regardless of name, shape or color, eggplants provide a ton of nutrients and antioxidants. For example, eggplant contains significant amounts of chlorogenic acid, which is one of the most powerful free radical scavengers found in plants. Chlorogenic acid has been shown to decrease LDL levels, and also serves as an antimicrobial, antiviral, and anticarcinogenic agent.
