Falafel Friday

When I was getting ready to leave work, I was completely stumped about where to get some food for dinner.

Josh and I had decided earlier in the day that we’d go to separate places and get takeout since our diets and favorite foods are quite different 😉 He got pizza…surprise, surprise.

But where do I go? I went to Twitter and asked my near-Louisville friends to get their ideas. They both mentioned Shiraz!

Now, I just ate there two weeks ago but what the heck 😉

I thought maybe I would try something different but on the drive there, all I could think about was falafel and sweet potato fries!


Next time, I SWEAR I will get something different, ha ha.

I usually eat the whole order of falafel but since I have made a commitment to be more in control of my portions for the Pound for Pound Challenge, I divided the falafel in half.

I also decided to skip the hummus this time. But I did eat all the sweet potato fries since there weren’t that many. Using my small dinner plate helped!

It was delicious!


I’m perfectly full but I foresee some form of chocolate chips & peanut butter in the next couple of hours!

Now it’s time to watch “The Hangover” and hopefully not fall asleep on the couch before 9 p.m. 🙂

Enjoy the weekend!

  5. Wow I need some falafel in my life. Your sweet potato fries are easily the best part though!
    Portion control is tough, but it looks like you really have a handle on it! Good for you!
    And I just love “The Hangover.” Especially when Ed Helms sings and plays the piano about the tiger. SO funny.
    Have a wonderful Saturday!

  6. Oh that looks good! It doesn’t appear to be anything I’ve ever tasted before either! I have so much to learn about vegan food! Sometimes I feel like I still don’t know anything about being vegan, even after four years of living the life! What Silliness! I really do enjoy the journey though. There’s always something new and exciting to learn and try! 😀

    Well, I’ll talk to you again soon, Sarah!
