The final installment in my Goodlife Foods journey involves these little balls of joy. That’s a sentence I never thought I’d write. Falafel balls originate from the Middle East, with their main ingredient being chickpeas.
The Goodlife Foods version I tried indeed contained: Chickpea (71%), Onion (21%), Rapeseed Oil, Parsley, Salt, Cumin Powder, Coriander Powder, Lemon Juice, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder, Chilli Powder. As you can see, there isn’t anything here too worrying, especially if you’re conscious about what you’re consuming.
As we get into the summer months, falafel is a great alternative to meat as it’s low in fat and not as stodgy. I typically eat mine with toasted flatbread, salad, and hummus. I can happily say these were amazing, full of flavor and really filling. Four is enough for lunch and I would suggest 6 for dinner, alongside something else of course. They tasted great warm, and even better when I took them for lunch the next day and had them cold.
My only negative with these is that if left I alone, I could probably eat them all in one sitting. It would be definitely worth the bad breath. If you’re after taste, spice and something filling, these falafel balls will be right up your street (food). Meat-free doesn’t just have to be blades of grass and rice crackers after all!

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up. I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
