Healthy Lunch Idea: Taco Pitas

I wanted to share a quick lunch idea while I’m on the road, headed to San Diego for Blogher 11.  If you are going to be there, come find me! I’d love to meet you in real life!

Lunchtime doesn’t have to be PB&J for your kids every single day!  This lunch is a favorite of mine.  It’s easy and fast since there is no meat to cook.  When wrapped in plastic wrap, or enclosed in a sectioned lunch container, it’s easy to keep fresh until lunchtime.taco pitas2

So, to make our pitas taste like tacos, we used:

  • Corn
  • Black Beans
  • chopped tomatoes
  • Chopped green onions
  • Chopped avocados
  • taco seasoning
  • Lettuce
  • Whole wheat pitas

Mix all ingredients (except lettuce and pitas) in a bowl.  Scoop into pitas when preparing lunch.

** PS, the top right section of this lunch container includes some dark chocolate almonds (powdered dark chocolate), and it tastes amazing!!  I will soon figure out how to make these on my own.

I’m not sure if my kids will eat these (you know – tomatoes) but they sound delicious to me. Have fun at your conference.

Great to see healthy kids meals online, there are to many fast food meals out their for them, and there should be more like this one.

Hi Amy, I’m a total stranger to you but I’m married to Aaron Pratt, who was friends with your brother in high school. Aaron came across this today (from somebody’s link on facebook I think) and showed me since I’m always reading recipe blogs! Anyway I just wanted to say hi and that this blog is great; it’s now on my google reader and I look forward to more posts!

P.S. I am totally going to order some of those bento lunchboxes; perfect!

We should always avoid seasonings because there are really high in sodium and have artificial fillers. Try using real herbs to season. For this recipe you can use cilantro.

The recipe looks healthy and quite easy to cook! I’m sure many kids will like this, because you use pitas to wrap it and i think many kids like the idea of wrapping the things up!

Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to take a look.
I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!

Fantastic blog and amazing design and style.

I know this site offers quality dependent articles and
additional stuff, is there any other web page which provides these kinds of information in quality?

It’s very trouble-free to find out any matter on web as compared to
textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this website.

I wonder how so much effort you set to make this type of fantastic informative web site.
