My Trip To Israel: Falafel and Shawarma Galore!

I had a wonderful time in Israel, but I am happy to be back home. To try and beat the jet lag, I decided to stay up and write this post. (Hopefully I don’t make any typos).

My 10 days were filled with so many activities that it was hard at times to fit food into my schedule. (This is even hard for me to imagine). Thus, I ate a lot of falafel (deep fried chickpeas) and shawarma (generally either lamb and/or beef cooked on a spit and eventually shaved for eating). My falafel or shawarma came in a pita pocket or wrap with hummus and various veggies such as eggplant, tomato, cucumber, and cabbage. Though not the healthiest, I consider falafel and shawarma a great and tasty fast-food option.

I am pretty sure I ate falafel or shawarma every day.  I even ordered falafel at the airport at 3 AM this morning – definitely a new low for me. I think I will avoid middle eastern food for a while now.
