Crispy Vegetable Fritters with Dill Tzatziki

Prepare for Victory

Crispy Vegetable Fritters with Dill Tzatziki are my favourite method of serving up veggies to the veggie averse. I can safely say that most of the vegetables in these fritters would not be willingly eaten by at least 2 members of my family. So I consider it a small victory when these are enjoyed for dinner and taken to school the next day.

Try Meat Free Mondays

These Crispy Vegetable Fritters with Dill Tzatziki are great for meat free Monday’s (but don’t limit them to Mondays!) and if you want to up the amount of vegetables you are consuming. By increasing the amount of vegetables in your diet you are consuming fewer calories and less fat. People who eat a largely plant based diet also weigh less and have a lower incidence of cardiovascular disease.

Evidence Based Plant Based Diets

My family has dramatically increased the amount of plant based food of late. We’ve taken on board the research that animal products contribute to heart disease, diabetes and the risk of stroke. (https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/meatless-meals/art-20048193). We haven’t eliminated animal products and maybe consume meat twice a week when we see extended family. We are still accommodating of the food choices of others and my youngest would rather not give up animal products. But she has been very good about transitioning to a diet that is largely plant based.

Dill Tzatziki

Don’t forget the wonderful benefits of immunity boosting garlic in the Dill Tzatziki and the probiotic yoghurt as well.  You can find the recipe here.

My Challenge to You

So would you consider adopting a diet rich in plant products? Have you tried going meat free once or twice a week? These Vegetable Fritters will be a good introduction to a great lifestyle change.
