Are you looking for a quick, easy and healthy lunch? Then give these Tuna Pita Pockets a try! The are yummy, full of crunch and flavor.
For the on plan dressing I used Boathouse Greek Yogurt Ranch and it added so much flavor! If your dressing has more than 2 carbs per serving, just use a bit less than 2 tablespoons. If you need more moisture you could add some 1% Cottage Cheese or 0% Fage Greek yogurt.
Another good idea would be to add some garlic powder or onion powder for more flavor. Pair this lunch with some fruit and you are good to go!
I can tuna
1 cup chopped greens or chopped salad mix
2 tablespoons plan approved dressing
5-6 cherry tomatoes halved
1 Joseph’s Pita pocket
This super simple lunch is perfect for that Saturday or Sunday when your craving some warm comfort food. Easy to make you can throw it together in a snap.
It takes mostly THM staple items with just few you might not have on hand. If you make the Taco Pie (I just have to add this is one of our favorites! Its so good!) recipe on page 119 of the Trim Healthy Table cookbook, then you will have pizza sauce on hand, along with cheese. Most THM plan followers also keep Joseph Pitas or lavish bread on hand for quick lunches. You may not have pepperoni in your fridge but you could also use ham deli lunch meat or chicken. Add some tomatoes or mushrooms if you wish and you have a quick and delicious lunch in just minutes.
1 Joseph’s Pita (cut in half or whole) or Lavish bread cut to size
Shredded cheddar cheese
Pepperoni or other meat
Tomatoes, mushrooms or other vegetables of you choice
Either cut your Pita in half and fill with the above toppings and place in a frying pan to heat until warm or lay you whole Pita in the frying pan topping one half with toppings and fold the empty side over to create a pocket. Warm until the cheese is melted and it reaches desired warmth. Enjoy!
