Vegetable and Feta Latkes

I love potato latkes. This is a recipe I found on yummly.com, and I decided to give it a try for breakfast. They’re waaaaaaay better than your average potato latkes. I hope you’ll love this too.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cup Grated Zucchini

1 cup Peeled and Shredded Potatoes

1 Cup Shredded Carrot

3 Eggs, Beaten

1/2 Cup Parsley

1/2 Cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup vegetable oil.

3/4 cup Matzo meal or flour

salt

Directions

  1. Place the zucchini, potato and carrots in a colander, place paper towels over the top and squeeze out as much moisture as possible. Sprinkle salt over the vegetables and let them drain for 15 minutes. Squeeze vegetable again in paper towels.
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine eggs, vegetables, salt and pepper. Mix well. Stir in matzo meal or flour, parsley and feta.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Place vegetable mixture, formed into pancake sized cakes in hot oil and fry until golden brown on both sides. (Cook two to three minutes per side). Add more oil as needed to keep cakes frying up well. Drain fried latkes on paper towels

Raspberry Pineapple Tofu Smoothie

I hate bananas.

 

Okay, glad I got that out of the way. I will not be posting any smoothie recipes that have bananas in them lol Sorry guys. I know its good for potassium and thickening the smoothies….BUT, Spinach has lots of potassium (and I add them quite often) AND I can easily use other things to thicken my smoothies. So no bananas. 😛 Now, onto the recipe itself.

Raspberry Pineapple Tofu Smoothie ❤

1 cup raspberry (fresh or frozen)

1 cup silken tofu

1 cup soy milk (or almond, or cows milk if you want, but the other two makes it smoother)

1/4 cup orange Juice

Blend!

Nutritionally, this is a good way to start your day. Though, sometimes I have smoothies for lunch or a snack after dinner. Raspberries are low in calories and saturated fats but are rich source of dietary fiber and antioxidants. Raspberries contain a good amount of minerals like potassium, manganese, copper, iron and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps controlling heart rate and blood pressure. Manganese is used by the body as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase. Copper is required in the production of red blood cells. They are rich in B-complex group of vitamins and vitamin K. The berries contain very good amounts of vitamin B-6, niacin, riboflavin, and folic acid. These vitamins are function as co-factors and help body in the metabolism of carbohydrates, protein and fats. So basically, they’re fucking awesome.

Pineapples are loaded with vitamins and minerals including vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium, phosphorus, and potassium. It is also rich in fiber and calories. On top of it all, this fruit is low in fat and cholesterol. All the nutrients it contains promote good health. Since pineapples are rich in vitamin C, it can fight off viruses that cause cough and colds. Even when you are already infected with such ailment, pineapples can help you. These fruits have bromelain, which is effective in suppressing coughs and loosening mucus. Eating pineapples while taking the right medications prescribed by the doctor for your sickness can help you recover more quickly! A Bonus! Pineapples are also popular for their ability to build and maintain strong bones. This is because these fruits contain manganese, which is a trace mineral that your body needs to build bones and connective tissues. In fact, if you consume a cup of pineapple, you can already get 73 percent of your total body requirement for manganese.

Consuming tofu regularly helps lower bad cholesterol, alleviates symptoms associated with menopause and even lowers the risk of cancer. Other major health benefits of tofu compared to meat include making middle-aged bones stronger and delaying the ravages of age. Tofu has been found to be a great source of calcium and vitamin E as well.

And most importantly, it tastes good. What other reason do you need?

If you give it a try, tell me what you think. Or if you have any recipe suggestions for me to try, share those too. I’m always searching for new smoothies to sip. Till Next Time.

Sip On my Lovelies, To Good Health ❤
