Pita Pockets

I wanted to go ahead and share a recipe that’s healthy and that my kids LOVE.  Depending on your room for carbs you may have to adjust the pocket or just do without it all together.


  1. Cucumber
  2. Tomato
  3. Lettuce/Spinach
  4. Bell Peppers
  5. Lean Meat (Chicken, Turkey, Tuna, Salmon, Bison [ham for kids])
  6. Any other Vegetable you desire
  7. Pitas
  8. Dressing (I love Bolthouse Farms Classic Ranch – 45 Calories per serving)

Image result for veggiesI prefer vine tomatoes but you can get any kind you prefer. All you have to do is slice up your favourite vegetables to add to your pocket.

This recipe has been a family favourite for years and packs well for lunches and keeps well in the fridge and is little to no cook.  Buy a rotisserie chicken and use that meat if your busy or deli meat for the family.  I promise your family will love this recipe.
