D75 1164 599x349 - Feta, Smashed Pea And Turmeric Fritters - Light Meals

It’s quite natural for our appetites to lessen during the summer months.  We tend to turn to lighter meals and foods with a high water content such as salads and fruits.

Personally I look for quick meals that are easy to whip up after you have made the most of the longer daylight hours without compromising nutrition.

I love a good all in one meal and when peas and turmeric and teamed in a fritter, then it is undeniable combo! 

Countless studies have shown that turmeric is a potent food medicine with curcumin being the key active constituent of turmeric. When consumed correctly turmeric is a potent anti-inflammatory (hello, sore muscles and joints), modulates blood sugar levels, and is said to inhibit cancer cells at a molecular level. For optimal curcumin absorption, it’s necessary to combine the heated turmeric with good fats such as coconut oil, milk or olive oil. You will also want to add a dash of black pepper for the piperine molecule that enhances curcumin uptake and bioavailability.
