Ingredients

  • 2 Joseph's pitas found on amazon or usually Walmart! WORTH the search-- 9 carbs a piece
  • 140 g liquid egg whites
  • 1 slice reduced fat swiss
  • 1 jimmy dean turkey sausage link diced
  • 50 g sliced roma tomatoes
  • 20 g thinly sliced red onion
  • 12 g thinly sliced red bell pepper
  • 20 g fat free chipotle creme recipe is in this post.
  • 18 g green goddess dressing from Trader Joes
  • Handful of arugula
  • Salt pepper, and everything bagel seasoning from Trader Joes

Instructions

  • Season egg whites with some salt and pepper and quickly scramble with turkey sausage over medium heat. They cook so fast without yolk so turn off heat as soon as they set. Divide into two mounds and drape half slice of cheese over both. Cover and let melt.
  • Spray both sides of the pitas with nonstick cooking spray and cook over medium heat until heated through and nice and pliable. Sprinkle with kosher salt while they cook.
  • Remove from heat and spread 10 grams of chipotle creme on each pita, followed by cheesy egg whites, tomatoes, peppers, onions, arugula, and a drizzle of green goddess dressing.  Finish with some more salt, pepper, and everything bagel seasoning!

Notes

This is so simple but such a winner for me. I also love chicken or lunch meat in a pita but for some reason the egg whites are my favorite right now! I always have them on hand, and they go with this warm, soft, savory situation. And then of course it's nice that they always have ZERO fat and basically ALWAYS fit.  Plus I actually have a tendency to overeat chicken since I can pick at it... but these keep me super honest since I'm not tempted by the carton of liquid whites. Takes incredible willpower.
