Detox Monday: Veggie Pita Sandwich

Being that it is the 11th day of the new year, I am very late to the New Year’s Resolution conversation. Since this is my first post of the year though, I thought I’d still say my piece! Most years I come up with something I really want to change or work on in the new year, but this year I came up empty handed. That’s not to say that I don’t have things that need work and attention; it’s just that I spent no time thinking about a worthwhile resolution this year. With a toddler running around and a baby in my belly, I don’t really have a lot of extra energy to devote to something new! However, I completely respect that this time of year, a lot of people are trying to eat healthy and work out. I am a huge proponent of both, but I know that when you’re not used to doing it, making the switch can be difficult and daunting. I feel that the only way to really succeed at eating healthy is by still enjoying foods you love in moderation, and by eating meals that are healthy AND satisfying.

I have made these Veggie Pita Sandwiches several times, and I think they are a great lunch option for someone trying to eat healthy and feel satisfied. I use whole wheat pita bread and stuff it with hummus, sliced hard boiled egg and veggies. Figuring out what to eat for lunch is often challenging, and I love having these easy sandwiches in my rotation. These Veggie Pita Sandwiches are not only great for starting healthy eating in the new year, but also for anytime of the year.

If you are someone who is working on a New Year’s Resolution, good luck to you!

What To Do

  1. Take half of the whole wheat pita bread and open it up to access the inside, being careful not to tear the bread. Spread 1/4 cup of hummus on both sides of the inside of the pita pocket.
