Re: Athletes and Vegetarians

Hello...Have you tried falafels or hummus?  Both have garganzo beans as
a base.  I use a mix for both and they are both VLF.  I skip adding any
extra oil to the hummus and I bake my falafels rather than deep fry them.
The falafels are nice because you can bake up the whole batch and put them
in serving size foil packets in freezer, then microwave as need.  Put 3-4
in a half a pita with sliced onion, tomato, cucumber, sprouts, whatever
and some ff plain dairy or soy yoghurt.  You can make the same sandwich
except with the hummus in place of the falafels or with them, or you can
use the hummus for a dip.  It is also good on top of a rice cake, then
broiled till hot.
