A Healthy Kick

Bathing suit season is here....and that means trying to eat healthy. TRYING being the key word here! On that note I headed to grocery store yesterday, market basket in hand, on the pursuit of only healthy foods. This included yogurts, fresh fruits and veggies, and only whole grains. I even bought a little basil plant to grow fresh herbs. All of my choices were pretty good for me (considering I could live off sweets and believe desserts a staple in any diet)! This all brings me to the pita chips I made; paired with hummus it was a delicious and healthy snack. (I swear they tasted better than the picture makes them out to be!) All I did to make them was: cut whole wheat pitas into small squares and unfold them a bit so they could crisp. Spread them evenly onto a greased baking sheet and add a little extra virgin olive oil, a hint of garlic salt, and a few sprinkle of parmesan. I baked them at 450 for about 4 mins. and then flipped them and finished baking for about 3 more minutes. It was soooo yummy!
Each pita was only 130 calories and made about 25 chips after they were separated a bit. Quite a low cal. option compared to a bag of chips! Try it out, they were great and my family loved them!!


  1. ah! We MUST make these at the beach!! Perfect for sitting out on the porch :)

  2. Sounds delicious! I, too, am trying to get ready for summer clothes and vacation, so any ideas on healthy snacks are much appreciated!

  3. I know I'm trying to eat healthy too!
