Our friend the sun is back and with it comes long afternoons spent outside, soaking up every minute we possibly can. Unfortunately, meals still need to be made and the more time spent outside means less time to prep and create.
A quick favorite at my house is the pita pocket. There are many ways to stuff a pita but our go to is spinach, cucumber, avocado, hummus and Organic Ville’s Ranch dressing (it’s vegan!) Of course, this isn’t always a hit with kids and not all kids want the same ingredients.
In those cases, it’s easy to set-up a create your own pita station. You can lay out the pitas and several choices for fillings and let the kids create. For those that fear their child will choose just one ingredient, create mini stations and let them know that they have to choose at least one ingredient from each station.
To round out the meal, we serve with fruit, finger friendly vegetables and hummus.
Enjoy more time outside and still serve a delicious, nutritious meal!
