Nutritious Pitta Bread Pocket

Nutritious Pitta Bread Pocket for On-The-Go

3 Minutes Ready to Go Munch-Lunch for One


(Click on images to enlarge) I absolutely love Kew Gardens or as it’s officially called: The Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, London UK. A good friend of mine decided to treat me and invite me to a day out at Kew which was a highly welcomed break I really desperately needed. Kew is a fascinating place, not only in its stunning landscape beauty with some really big old gnarly trees planted as far back as the 17th century, but also from a scientific and historical viewpoint, together with royal palace buildings dotted around the grounds.

We decided to take our own mini picnic, packed lunches along; and as my dear friend prefers the gentler English sandwich flavours, and I like to add chillies, etc. to mine, we pepared each our own.

I thought I would add this little lunch creation here, just to show how easy it is to quickly put together a pitta bread sandwich packed with flavours and nutritious goodness to inspire you to do your own.

Half munched wrap ... sorry! Was too delicious and forgot to take a pic of the finished (and uneaten) wrap ....

This is ‘Dinner for One’. I fancied playing around with a food wrap and literally looked around my kitchen and fridge what I could use.

I tend to have a variety of home sprouted seeds, as a staple alfalfa and mungbean seeds sprouted. I love them, they are so cheap and easy to grow and there is always something fresh and nutritions in the kitchen.

Well, I decided to take pictures, stage by stage of my creation, but in the end I forgot to take a picture of the end result. Got carried away and started munching. I noticed it half way through my delicious wrap.

Wheatgrass Health Benefits

Wheatgrass shot ... strong stuff, trust me!

I am not an expert on wheatgrass, however I am well aware of all its benefits.

What I would say is, ‘start slowly’! Your tastebuds and body need to get used to the unique grassy smell and taste. Some people add it to other freshly pressed juices or ginger, and others drink it in a shot glass. Certainly my preference is a shot glass and grimace whilst quickly pouring it down my throat. No leisurely sipping here for me! To me it’s like medicine.

Anyway, I collected a good amount of useful info from the Internet to convince anyone that it is certainly worth it putting up with that particular grass taste at least once a day (quickly!) ….

Wheatgrass – Growing & Juicing

Posted by: | Comments (1)

Not any old grass! Wheatgrass is off the charts on the nutrition scale!

Depending on where you live, getting hold of trays full of grown wheatgrass from your local health food supplier, or bottled wheatgrass juice, can either be difficult or at the least very expensive.

I find, just clearing some space on the windowsill in my kitchen does the trick … and you can almost watch wheatgrass grow.

Chicken & Salsa Veggie Wrap

Wraps are the most versatile pack-it-all-in foods. Here's one of my creations ... and I served it with baba-ghannouj

The dish described below I made for two people. It is quite filling and very yummy.

A fair warning, though, because the wraps are so packed with veggies and salad it’s just impossible to make a neat pretty wrap parcel out of that. Plus with the dip, all in all, it makes a very messy finger licking dish.
