Falafel Chicken and Homemade Tzatziki sauce

Update 9/23/2020: I‘m on a project to update all of the recipes here to a new format and it’s given me some serious chuckles. I mean.. is this a recipe? Was this ever a “wellness blog”? Why did I ever give up egg yolks even temporarily?


Since this really is a wellness blog.. not just about karate, I thought I’d post a recipe I sort of adapted from a fuller fatter version that involved frying and egg yolks.  I’d site the source, but I don’t know where the original came from.

Anyway, this was very tasty! Makes 4 servings but it heats up nicely the next day.
