Is Falafel healthy?
Had it for lunch, seemed like a good choice - am I wrong?
No to the first question. Yes to the second. Falafel is deep fried, and I would even say that chickpeas or fava beans themselves are middle of the road, i.e. not very healthful but not bad for you either. So as a whole, I'd say that Falafel is not good for you. Better than deep-fried oreos, but much worse than beans/veggies that have not been dunked in hot oil.
