Mediterranean Salad Pockets

I’m all about sticking to the 80/20 rule when it comes to nutrition. I actually crave healthy, clean foods, most of the time. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t pass up vegan pizza, donuts, or Mexican food at any given chance, (ha!) but I like to spice things up with quick, easy lunches so I don’t resort to snacking throughout the day.

These salad pita pockets are filled with yummy veggies and full of flavor!

Mediterranean Salad Pita Pockets

  • Cucumbers, sliced
  • Grape Tomatoes, sliced
  • Avocado, sliced
  • Tabouli
  • Hummus (I use Black Garlic flavor!)
  • Vegan Mozzarella (goat/feta can be used!)
  • Protein Options: Chickpeas, Lentils or Grilled Chicken
  • Cholula (optional)

Enjoy!

Smoke & Barrel DC

On Saturday we had brunch at Smoke & Barrel. This is one of my faves in DC. A brunch buffet that includes vegan french toast, tofu scramble and sweet potato hash is pretty amazing.
