Ingredients

  • 3 zucchini, cut ends off, grate
  • 1 sweet potato, wash well and grate, no need to peel
  • ½ leek, wash well to remove grit, cut in half lengthways and finely slice
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅔ cup plain flour
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • Olive oil
  • Tzatziki

It’s this easy

  • In a large bowl whisk the eggs with a fork.
  • Add the vegetables, flour, parmesan, pepper and a small amount of salt and mix it all together.
  • Add enough oil to cover the base of a frying pan place on the stove over a medium heat. Spoon the mixture into the pan to make fritters the size of a small drinks coasters. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, the fritters should be golden and feel firm in the centre.
  • If you don’t have a frying pan you could try cooking the fritters on a sandwich press. Wipe the base of the sandwich press with some paper towel dipped in oil, spoon the mixture onto the base of the press and lower the top down. Lock the top into place just above the fritter and cook until golden on both sides, turing once as they cook.
  • Repeat until all the mixture is cooked.
  • Serve with tzatziki.

Tweaks

  • Add a pinch of nutmeg and some chopped mint for extra herby, spicy flavour.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
