As part of the 2021 winter menu, we’ve launched Falafel! Add our Falafel to ANY wrap, salad, or bowl, for a protein boost, and try it in the NEW Avo Falafel wrap.
Falafel is a plant-based protein source that is popular with health-conscious eaters and foodies alike. Made from chickpeas, it originated in the Middle East but is now enjoyed all over the world. It’s made from a combination of ingredients that varies between different recipes but often includes chickpeas, fava beans, herbs, spices & onion. Falafel can be enjoyed as a stand-alone dish, but it’s commonly enjoyed as part of wraps, shwarmas, flatbread, or as part of an assortment of appetizers called a meze.
2. Health Benefits of Falafel
Falafel is filled with many health benefits that can assist you in many ways. It contains a wide variety of nutrients, is a good source of fiber, and contains plant-based protein from the beans. The fiber in Falafels has shown to help assist blood sugar levels by slowing carb absorption, this promotes steady rises in blood sugar rather than spikes. Also, the fiber in falafel has been shown to improve bowel health, as well as lower risks of heart disease.
