Falafel Vs. Pizza

  • Written on:

Food, glorious food! The saviour of many an After Hours Athlete, the foil of many a hangover and the filler of many an empty stomach. We engage in the healthy vs. greasy debate and weigh up the relative merits of the Falafel and the Pizza to decide on the Holy Grail of late night sustenance.

Here are your contenders...

In the red corner, hailing from the Middle East, weighing in at a little under 35 grams, consisting of fried chickpeas...the Vegetarian Totalitarian, the Egyptian Prescription...FALAFELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!

Falafel The falafel has been at the forefront of the vegetarian health revival of the early noughties leading the way at music festivals and street corners across the globe. Its popularity lies in its combination of exotic ingredients, crunchy texture and convenient Pitta packaging (helping avoid sauce spillages on your PUMA Suede). Scoring high on the sophisticated satiety scale, the falafel will happily take on the meatiest of opposition!

In the blue corner, hailing from the deepest ovens of Italy, weighing in at 79 grams, composed entirely of flour and water...the Italian Stallion, the greasy Kahuna....Piiiiiiiiiiiizzzzzzzzzzzzaaaaaa!

Pizza Pizza remains a dietary necessity for the serious After Hours Athlete, providing essential nutrients to line a complex digestive system and absorb excess C2H5OH. Its simple, no-nonsense make-up and jazzy variations ensures pizza’s position as a fast food pioneer, paving the way for fancy descendants such as the Calzone or Stromboli. Pizza’s continued success comes from an innate ability to be consumed anyplace, anytime (often tasting better as a cold, bleary-eyed breakfast).

What team are you on?!
