Does falafel make you feel awful?

Falafel makes me feel awful sometimes. Maybe it's because I don't eat fried foods all that often. ('cuz you never really know what your non-meat freid thing is being fried with) Or maybe it's because a falafel patty is typically dripping in grease and has more calories than I should ever eat in one meal.

I was happy to discover the new Sunshine Burger falafel patties at Whole Foods. Vegetarians, rejoice! (and vegans, too!) The taste of a restaurant style falafel sandwich out of your very own kitchen! No frying required!

Admittedly, the nutrition stats for one burger aren't the greatest - 230 calories and 11 grams of fat. But they are gluten free, soy free and vegan. And unlike falafel I'd order at a restaurant, I can be sure that one of these little patties hasn't been fried alongside some random meaty thing. And that they won't make me feel awful.
