Healthy Tuna and White Bean Pita
My husband can eat a regular turkey sandwich every day for lunch. I, on the other hand, need to stray from the normal routine every once in a while. Are you the same way?
Since a little variety can keep the motivation to diet and/or eat healthy strong, I like to change things up a bit. I found a recipe that looked quite tasty but wasn’t low calorie at all. So, I experimented a bit and came up with this tuna and white bean pita recipe that’s packed full of protein, very filling, and easy to make ahead for freezing.
Healthy food can have flavor and taste great!
