Veggie Diary: Falafel Love

To be honest, one of the things that convinced me that I could probably hack a month of going veg is the fact that I've been constantly craving Maoz Vegetarian's falafel sandwiches after Bikram. Somewhere between the full locust pose and the rabbit pose, I start daydreaming about the crisp and tasty falafels, which I like to smother with tabouleh, tomatoes, onions and tahini sauce from the open bar. If I'm lucky, I get the seat right by the bar, allowing for convenient topping refilling and tahini sauce re-drizzling. Maoz has a branch right by Union Square so it's an extremely convenient stop after class. I usually get a Junior Maoz, which is half a wholewheat pita stuffed with 3 crisp falafels and lettuce. It's less than $5 and with that open salad bar at my disposal, it's definitely enough to fill my little self up. Hey, I said I'd go vegetarian, I didn't say I was going on a diet.

In other news, I'm feeling a bit tired today but I don't know if that's because I'm not getting enough protein (thus the falafel massacre after today's Bikram class) or because I didn't get much sleep (my apartment was so hot last night that I turned on the AC. In the middle of winter!). Hopefully an early bedtime and more helpings of lentils tomorrow will do me good. Prying my grubby hands from the keyboard now ...
