I love Falafel's they are delicious but are usually high in fat if deep fried. Yesterday I passed by a Subway on N. State street and saw that they added Falafel sandwiches to the menu.
I looked the nutritional values up for it and was pleased to find out that it is relatively low in fat...
serving size: 1 (3 Falafel patties)
total fat: 15g
... I don't know if these values include the sauce, cheese and all the fixings, probably not, but I just had them put onion, tomatoes, lettuce and cucumber's on mine; I think this is standard for this sandwich... I have my own low fat Tzatziki sauce at home so I skipped the sauce. Subway toast the sandwich...I chose flatbread.
Here are the calories for the flatbread:

Falafel sandwich including the bread and my sauce was:
Net Carbs: 50
... for a lower carb alternative I bought low carb tortilla wraps to transfer the Falafel to @ home.
Cedars of Lebanon Tzatziki sauce:
I bought this sauce from Whole Foods and they also have it at Treasure Island
I give this sandwich
knives & forks
... Tasted really good... of course there are better sandwiches out there at places that specialize in making them, but for $3.50, if you are looking for a lower fat alternative, you can't beat it...
