Turkey, Veggie, and Hummus Pita



Lunch is one of the hardest meals for me to plan.  I don’t want to eat too much, but I also don’t want to eat too little.  Especially when I have dance, I don’t want to have a heavy stomach in ballet class.  I’ve been trying out different things-salads, sandwiches, soup, but I think I’ve finally found a meal that is perfect for me.

Pitas, this whole week I’ve been stuffing my pita pocket with turkey, lettuce, tomato, and hummus, and I have to tell you it is so delicious and so filling, without leaving you feeling bloated or stuffed.  You can put anything inside it, and I’m just finding that I like them a lot better than regular sandwich bread.  This turkey veggie combo I’ve created is the perfect balance of protein and veggies, and is just so yummy!

What you need

1 pita pocket

Lettuce Leaves

3-4 slices Tomato

1 tbsp hummus (I like roasted red pepper)

Deli Turkey

Cut pita in half and spread hummus on the inside of both halves.  Then fill both with remaining ingredients.


Feel free to use as much or as little of the items as you like, it’s totally up to you!  If you feel super hungry, stuff the pita to the brim, and if you want something lighter, don’t fill it as much.  I love the pitas because you can really customize your sandwich to your liking.

Definitely try this recipe, and I’d love to hear other combinations you’ve created!

  2. I know what you mean . . . lunch is a conundrum . . . when I want to eat light and eat fruit, I do end up feeling bloated and not able to work out . . . . I love all foods that are handheld and this looks like a simple winner!

  3. Sounds really delicious Jess! I also tend to have always those ingredients at home in my fridge and either a pita pocket or some bagels that I can just quickly toast to make a quick sandwich, agree, it’s a perfect filling and still light snack! Thanks for bringing along to the Fiesta! Sylvia
