Another place I need to visit was a fast food hummus restaurant in my home town called Good2Go. They specialize in making healthy, vegetarian fast food. My favorite meal to order is the traditional falafel. It has chickpeas, hummus, veggies, and it is all stuffed into a pita pocket bread. It may not sound very filling, but one of these will fill me up for dinner and I usually can barely finish it!

A falafel is fried chickpeas, vegetables and herbs packed into a ball. It is vegetarian friendly and also has a great taste. Chickpeas or garbanzo beans are known in the Mediterranean, India and the Middle Eastern. It is known to make falafals and a certain kind of Burmese tofu. It replaces red meat, they are high in fiber and can lower cholesterol. They are great to add to a salad to replace tofu. Like tofu the chickpea does not have a strong taste but it does fill you up. Here the website the World’s Healthiest Foods, lists chickpeas as one healthy ingredient.
In my previous post, I mentioned that I had Fall Break the past few days. When I’m home I love cooking. In the morning I cooked an easy breakfast, some french toast with cinnamon and bananas. It is a very tasty breakfast that combines toast and pancakes but has a unique taste.
