Cold Food

by Meghann on May 20, 2010

I discovered a new delicious pita combination that I would like to add to my Top 10 Most Awesomest (I know I made that word up) Pita list.


It contains Arugula, Tabouli, Feta, Chickpeas, and it is freaking amazing.

Look how pretty…


Now that it’s HOT outside I find myself craving summer foods. All I want are cold sandwiches, cold pitas, salads, and fresh fruit – You see the cool and refreshing theme here? – and this pita perfectly fit the bill. It was light, refreshing, and full of great mediterranean flavors. Yum!

I had a serving of cold and crisp english peas on the side of the pita.


Ohhhh…. summer – you always come too quickly to Florida! Where did spring go? Those couple of weeks were way too short!

This morning I snacked on some chocolate graham and pretzel goldfish.

Ohh that pita looks delicious! I love cold things in the summer too but in DC its not quite settled into the warm weather, yet.

That pitta does look good – I’m all wanting cold food now too – hot oatmeal has been almost forgotten :'(
:O I got a ticket to the HLS! I’m so excited to meet everyone 🙂

I wonder if anyone makes a gluten free pita pocket, because now you have me wanting to try that!

I’m pretty sure they would do- if even the British market can sell them, I’m sure its more advanced Uncle Sam will (or you could try making your own?!)

Seriously! My Poppa made a big pot of SOUP last night…it was so hot and warm! I need cold food when the weather is hot. Although to his defense it was cloudy and kinda chilly yesterday.

I’ve been eating cereal every day for lunch because the coldness just sounds so good!

7 Brandi May 20, 2010 at 2:10 pm

sounds like a great combo! I love chickpeas with just about anything.

Wish there was a Healthy Living Summit on the West Coast!! 🙁

I’m so with you! I love cool lunches during the summer.

I detest tabbouleh. I really can’t stand parsley

12 AlisonJ May 20, 2010 at 2:37 pm

Wow, that pita looks AMAZING! Now you are making me crave feta – love, love, love feta!

13 Hayley @ Breath of Fire May 20, 2010 at 2:41 pm

This is like, my dream lunch. I could eat mediterranean food every day for the rest of my life, I think!

14 Kara @ Kara's Marathon May 20, 2010 at 2:44 pm

Thanks for the raffle plug, Meghann!! 🙂

I’m so bummed I won’t be able to make it to this year’s HLS (gotta save up my vaca time and $$ for a big trip this fall!), but I hope I’ll get a chance to meet you someday soon! Do you have any trips to NYC planned in the future?

That pita looks so good! I have been experimenting with new lunch ideas at work and will definitely have to give this a try.

16 Sarah May 20, 2010 at 3:20 pm

Yet another food combination that I need to try- and soon! Yum, that pita looks so good!

17 Erin May 20, 2010 at 4:48 pm

I love pita–how does it taste so much more amazing than bread?

18 danica May 20, 2010 at 5:17 pm

I’m the same way! I can’t eat my oats in the morning amymore because its just too hot!

19 runnerforever May 20, 2010 at 5:28 pm

If I had that pita sandwich, I am pretty sure it would be my number 1, wowza!

What a great pita combination!!!

21 theprocessofhealing May 20, 2010 at 7:35 pm

That does sound good! I’m craving fresh fruit and veggies like CRAZY!

I am a fan of cold food for summer time
mostly because I hate waiting for things to gook.

you’re so talented at food preparation. keeping the pita in one piece when stuffed is a true art!
