Pita Tuna

I first encountered Pita bread was few years ago from one of my colleagues. Since then, we consumed pita bread with various of fillings very often especially during lunch time. It was one of our diet plan.

Pita bread is very versatile, we can stuff plenty of fillings in it, such as chicken meat, lamb, beef, tuna, sardines, baked beans, vegetables, sausages or any of your own preference. Pita bread, spelled “pitta bread” in the UK, is a round leavened flatbread that is consumed all over the world in many different cultures. It is generally made with wheat but can also be made in multigrain and whole wheat varieties. Reference from wisegreek. We can make pita bread at home too. It is a healthy and indeed easy-to-find bread around. I would prefer wholemeal as it contains more fibre in it and much healthier. Pre-packed pita bread comes with variety of flavours, such as original, cheese, wholemeal & garlic.

Since my son will be going to pre-school next year, I have to pack some snack or light-meal for him to bring along for his break time. Pita bread with tuna is just one of the simple and healthy snack for all time. Tuna is also a good source of protein, Omega 3, vitamins and minerals. A prefect choice for a growing up kid.
This recipe is simply good for those who is on the run or on diet plan. I would love to have it for my breakfast as I am always rushing to work in the morning! Having something that is tasty, healthy, high in nutrients and easy to make for breakfast is such a convenient way for working parents and kids! Do you agree with me?

Simple yet delicious! A prefect snack for kids and you!You may also try out this simple snack of Tortilla!

Pita is very easy to handle, and not like sandwich where the tuna flakes will fall from the bread.
I like it!!!
