Quick, Easy, Healthy

During the week, there are some days (believe it or not) when I just don't want to invest an hour into making dinner.  Last night was one of them.  I had a recipe bookmarked that looked good, but turned out to be really quick and cheap to boot.  These Falafel burgers were excellent.  The tahini sauce was a great condiment.  I  also added some fried halloumi with black pepper.  By the way, if you've never had halloumi, you are so missing out.  How can you go wrong with fried cheese?

  So, no, I am not a vegetarian, which is the question I get when ever I've told someone that I've made a  batch of bean burgers (it actually does come up in conversation. I think I need to get out more.).  I try to make a conscious effort to eat more fruits and vegetables and less meat and dairy.  After reading a few really informative books like The China Study and Skinny Bitch and watching movies like Food Inc., I have dallied in veganism and vegetarianism here and there.  I still struggle with milk (if  you're interested here's why).  I think food is an extremely personal choice though, and I have no problem with people who eat meat and dairy.  I still do, I just try to make sure it's as local and organic as possible.


  1. I LOVE falafel! I'm not veg either but I frequently like to choose meatless options when available. I must try these burgers, they look delicious. And for the record, I have NOT ever had halloumi and now I am slightly concerned I am missing out - fried cheese you say? I must research this topic further!
