Having a husband who was brought up eating Middle Eastern food, I had to make friends with Pita. Not my usual go-to bread of choice, I had to try a lot of brands before I settled in on Demascus Bakeries Pita from Costco. Now, I eat it every day and always have bags on hand in my freezer. I use it in place of bread and tortillas to make pizza pitas, bean and cheese “quesadillas”, open-faced tuna sandwiches, scrambled egg gyros, and anything else I can think of. I introduced it to my mother-in-law and she buys it now, so you know it’s gotta be good! At only 110 calories and 5 grams of fiber per serving (the whole pita!) it’s also low calorie and a source of whole grains.
As I mentioned in my January Newsletter, I’m really into smoothies this month. A smoothie for me is not complete without a serving or two of this Organic Triple Berry Blend from BJs. Berries are superfoods and excellent sources of antioxidants and fiber. I love the BIG bag!
