Gladsome, Joseph's pita breads have only 60 calories and 5 g fiber.
Tonight I ate one of their flat breads with 100 calories and 6 g. fiber. I liked the flavor better and it was large enough to roll up and slice into pinwheels for a party. Nice.

I get them in Walmart where I live in Florida. They are in the deli section in front of the cut to order cold cut case.

not sure I would have thought of shredding!! What a great idea. Not sure what brands of pita bread we have in my area, but I've always liked them so I'll check them out - haven't used pita for quite a while. I do like the whole wheat 'skinny buns' though! and of course low carb flour tortillas.

Very similar. Things just stay in the pita a little better. And Joseph's pita breads seem to have more fiber than the wraps I've found. (Im trying to increase fiber from 30 - 40 g a day by the end of October.)

If I were to put the combination in a wrap, I'd grate or shred the apple, and maybe even add some cabbage. Once you get started, it's easy to add in something else or switch an ingredient out for another.

If you keep chopped and shredded fruits and veggies in covered containers, along with prepared rice, beans, and other grain like quinoa, then you are always ready to put together a good meal or snack that has the type of foods that your day's menu plan needs.

I ate cole slaw in a wrap once and it was delicious! Your idea sounds similar, and I'll just have to check it out myself!

I probably need to switch from natural peanut butter to almond butter - it's supposed to be better for you. Thanks for the idea!

Chunked apple, walnuts, celery, chobani no fat yogurt, cinnamon, sweetener of your choice. Great for a healthy snack, or a meal in Joseph's oat/stoneground wheat pita bread.

I love to find celery that is bright green and has a strong aroma at the market. Then, after it gets cold, I spread my serving of cashew butter on it. Crunchy. Salty from the celery. Cold summer snack. Delicious.

I'm looking for yummy high protein snacks & main dishes - but no soy ...
