Yield: 2 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 large Pita bread
2 ounces Shaved turkey
2 tablespoons Diced red onion; or thinly sliced
1 tablespoon Diced green bell pepper; or thinly sliced
½ cup Shredded lettuce
¼ cup Chopped tomato; or sliced
\N \N Alfalfa sprouts
2 tablespoons Fat-free salad dressing

Cut large pita round in half. Tuck in meat of choice, red onion, green pepper, shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and top with alfalfa sprouts.

Spoon on fat-free dressing. Yield: 2 servings.

Variations: Lean or extra lean cold cuts: chicken, roast beef or roast pork; shaved.

Mayo reduced the fat and calories by: 1) halving the amount of meat but doubling it's volume by used shaved or thinly sliced cold cuts. 2) halving the amount of dressing, and 3) substituting a non-fat version of a food: compare 99 cal (11g fat) for mayonnaise; 50 cal (5g fat) for lowfat mayonnaise; and 10 cal (0g fat) for fat-free mayonnaise.
