Beat the Sandwich Blues

It is now well into the new school year.  Have you heard this comment yet “…but my lunch is boring!!”?  Yes, undoubtedly, one of the challenges that we face as parents is to keep lunches healthy and “not boring”.  Eating a nutritious lunch doesn’t have to be boring and most definitely there are some delicious recipes out there.

We dug into our repertoire and found one of our favourite wrap/pita recipes.  While it calls for chicken….Turkey is a timely replacement (if you have left overs in the fridge) and the tangy addition of mustard and lemon juice, adds some zip to the pita:



2 cups chicken breast, shredded
½ cup whole grain mustard
⅓ cup honey
1 cup basil leaves, torn
1 red bell pepper, diced
½ teaspoon lemon zest
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon salt
4-6 pita bread halves


1. In a large bowl, combine the chicken, mustard, honey, basil, bell pepper, lemon zest, red pepper flakes, and salt.

2. Spoon the mixture into the pita bread halves to desired fullness and serve.

3. Enjoy!
