Welcome to my Whole 30 big fat veggie fritters in the Airfryer. Fat like British fishcakes but completely vegan, these are heaven for if you are following the Whole 30 or Paleo lifestyle and want something for the beach, the park, the office or for a midnight snack.
Trust me when I say these are completely and utterly addictive. You just can’t have one of them. They are also one of those multiple uses snacks too. Make them in bulk and share them out for a light family dinner with salad. Or you can snack on them.
My favourite thing to do with them is have them for breakfast. I am not a big breakfast fan and they taste so good as something to start the day with. Plus they are loaded with goodness thanks to all the vegetables and don’t make you feel over full in case you have a busy lifestyle.
Quite often I will have a high egg breakfast and then I always feel like I can’t move for hours and hours. At least with this, its just something light.
Oh and take it down to the beach.
When I think of the Whole 30 I am often freaking out that I can’t go to the beach or the park and have a picnic. Everything I think of for the beach has excessive carbs in it. There is the sandwiches, the sausage rolls, the crisps, the chocolate biscuits and the list goes on and on. But if you make different versions of these, then you suddenly can be lost among a huge range of Whole 30 friendly beach food.
And this is probably the only reason why I can get through a Whole 30 challenge in the summer is thanks to these little fritter beauties….Plus did I mention that they are made in the Airfryer. A quick blast and you have beach friendly fritters!#Whole30 Big Fat #Veggie Fritters In The #Airfryer Recipe @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
Peel and dice the carrots, onion and sweet potato. Dice the courgette. Place it in the Instant Pot for 5 minutes on the steam setting. When it has cooked for 5 minutes remove the pressure straight away and drain the vegetables.
Place the vegetables into a tea towel and squeeze out any excess moisture. Once they are drained place in a mixing bowl.
Using a blender, blend the turmeric granola. Place it into the mixing bowl with your drained vegetables.
Add to the bowl salt and pepper along with the juice and rind of one lime.
Mix well and form into fritter like shapes.
Fridge for an hour so that they have chance to harden.
Cook for 15 minutes at 200c.
Serve with my Paleo ranch dressing.
The flavours of the turmeric granola bounces around. This means that you really don’t need extra seasoning and a bit of salt and pepper is sufficient.
The idea behind squeezing out your vegetables is to free them from the excess water especially with watery vegetables such as courgette. The easiest way to do this is to buy a cheap pillow case and throw in all your vegetables and then squeeze out all the liquids over the sink. Some people use a tea towel but I find you can fit more into a pillow case.
Whole 30 Day 3
I am back with my day 3 on the Whole 30. The third day is here and the day that I consider to be the worst. That moment when you suddenly realise that your body is coming down from all the bad things that you ate and it makes you feel like life is about to end unless you go back to your old ways.
My day 3 was like a full day of food cravings. All I wanted was some chocolate, then I wanted some pasta and I just kept thinking about it all day. But I believe this is because I feel flat from the lack of carbs and the reduction in calories. And when you are still exercising the same it can be a real pain.
But tomorrow will be another day….
What I ATE On Day THREE Of The Whole 30
Today has been fun with several new recipes tried out and its so much fun to try new things. Its particularly good for the Whole 30 because you can get so excited about the meals it will help you forget that you are going a month without chocolate and cheese.
Breakfast = Veggie Fritters
Lunch = Bunless Burger & Chips
Dinner = Sausage Casserole
Exercise = 5km Country Walk/Run
For breakfast today we had the same breakfast as the recipe above. Just because fritters are just so good for breakfast. Oh and because we had loads of steamed vegetables leftover from yesterday.
For lunch we had delicious bunless burgers with a big salad and some sweet potato fries. Airfryer sweet potato fries are just so good and I highly recommend that you try them.
For dinner we have a sausage casserole in the slow cooker. But instead of having dumplings like we always used to we settle for some vegetable fritters with it instead. Its just full of vegetables and eggs and makes a great plan B.
Introducing The Casa De Sante Turmeric Granola
Each day over the next 30 days we are featuring tips, quotes, infographics or reviews that have helped us get through our Whole 30. Today is the turn of the Turmeric flavour of the Granola that is sold by Casa De Sante. We used it to make these delicious veggie fritters.
Here are 10 reasons to buy the Turmeric Granola:
- 1.6-ounce single serving package
- All natural ingredients
- Contains turmeric, which is believed to be heart healthy, helpful to diabetics, and beneficial to people with Alzheimer’s
- Gluten free
- Great for people with gastrointestinal issues
- High in iron
- Low sodium and sugar
- No cholesterol
- Resealable foil packets
- Vegan friendly
Casa de Sante Artisan Savory Granola Golden Tumeric is a healthy snack food, hearty breakfast, or helpful addition to recipes, soups, yogurt, or salads. The crunchy granola is a satisfying blend of nuts, seeds, puffed brown rice, and quinoa. There’s very little sweetness in the Golden Turmeric granola, so it works well as a coating for fried or baked foods or topping on homemade casseroles.
Golden Turmeric granola does have plenty of turmeric coating the granola. This is a really good thing given the beneficial properties of turmeric. Studies find turmeric helps improve memory function in Alzheimer’s patients, helps with heart health, and slows the progression of prediabetes. Turmeric is an antioxidant that also has anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s not a bad thing to be adding to your diet.
Whether you’re new to granola or have loved it for years, Casa de Sante Artisan Savory Granola Golden Turmeric is going to become a favourite. Casa de Sante’s managed to reduce the sweetness that so many granolas have. This alone makes it my new favourite granola brand!
Its best feature…has to be the fact that this granola is perfect for binding food together as a great alternative to the old white flour.
Overall – You really need to try Casa de Sante Artisan Savory Granola Golden Turmeric. My mind is spinning with the thoughts of all the ways I could use this granola. It’s a great breading for fried foods, but it would also be an excellent topping for homemade macaroni and cheese. I can see topping salads with the crunchy granola nuggets. It’s also going to be a great replacement for croutons in cheddar broccoli soup. You won’t find a more versatile granola out there.
