12 Easy Lunch & Snack Ideas That Won't Get Old

Add some flair to your next lunch break with this refreshingly, light Mediterranean meal. Mediterranean food is great, because it is full of flavor and keeps the grease and oil to a minimum, making it really healthy for you. Don’t feel bad about eating this tabouleh salad with whole wheat crisps. If anything, it will give you the right amount of energy to keep you going about your day!

The meal itself consists of three parts: the dressing, the salad, and the whole wheat pita crisps. It may sound like a handful, but it’s actually pretty simple to make! The dressing simply requires all the ingredients to be placed in a food processor and then combined until the right consistency. The salad works pretty much the same way. Just combine all the fresh ingredients and toss well with the dressing. Finally, make the crisps by cutting whole wheat pitas into triangles and then baking them in the oven with a little seasoning. Voila! You are done with your meal. If you want, you can make larger quantities and use them throughout the week too!

Note on serving size – 6 pita triangles equals about 3/4 of a regular size pita.

  1. Even with the pita chips removed my fitness pal puts the calories well over what was listed above. If you do add the pita chips the recipe comes out to 525 ish, am I doing something wrong? Quinoa alone is 938 calories

    1. Katie, Are you calculating the entire recipe or just 1 serving? That’s way too many calories for quinoa.
