Falafels + Mediterranean Yogurt DipFebruary 26, 2013 - Author: Ashlee - 6 Comments
See anything different on the blog today? Someone please tell me how I didn’t notice that my header said “His-n-Hers Happy-n-Healthy” and my web address and blog name is “His-n-Hers Healthy-n-Happy”?! I’m sure that was a tad confusing for readers trying to find my site…Sorry about that!
This morning I reallllly wanted to get my workout in before work. I’m leaving town again tomorrow for a work trip and knew it would be nice to get my sweat session out of the way so I have extra time to pack and get things together tonight.
For the last month or so, the hubby has been going into work at 2:30 am (and getting home after 6pm!). Thankfully today is the last day of that, but after he left this morning I could NOT go back to sleep for the life of me. I laid there until about 4:30 when I finally drifted off. An hour later at 5:30, I decided there was no way I would get a good workout in and slept in instead. Sheesh. I’m pretty sure it was the red wine I had while watching The Bachelor. Does it disrupt anyone else’s sleep, or am I just weird? At least I know I will sleep good tonight!

LUNCH: Falafels + Pita & Mediterranean Yogurt Dip – 295 calories
About 2 years ago, I took a trip to Seattle for work, and we ate at this delicious little hole in the wall Mediterranean restaurant. Ever since then, I’ve been in love with falafel, but sadly, have never had them again! I decided over the weekend it was time to change that and prepped a bunch to freeze for lunches.
SO good!! They taste like something that Ican’t quite put my finger on… Either way, they’re totally delicious. I served 2 falafel patties open faced on a whole wheat pita with romaine, grape tomates & a Mediterranean inspired sauce.
Makes 6, 88 calorie patties
- 1/4 C Oatmeal, ground into a flour
- 1 Can garbanzo beans
- 3 T Cilantro
- Juice from 1/2 of a lemon
- 1 Organic egg
- 2 t Minced garlic
- Salt & paprika to taste
Grind oats in food processor until a powder forms. Add the rest of the ingredients and pulse until a thick mixture forms.
Heat a skillet to medium with olive oil spray. Cook patties until starting to brown, flipping halfway through. Enjoy!
Top it off with the good stuff!
