National Wellness Month was thought of in 2018 to be observed in August. This is just a time to practice self-care, come up with stress reducers and be intentional about healthy practices. Start with small changes and see how this will bring improvements. Drink more water. Take up yoga. Get more sleep. Eat fresh fruits and veggies. Get out doors and take a hike! And while you’re hiking, you can observe National Sandwich Month, which also occurs in August. Try this Pita Pocket Sandwich with all of your favorite things. Have a great time celebrating all the things in August!

Pita Pocket Sandwich

Ingredients

  •  ½ cup spinach, trimmed leaves
  • ¼ cup cucumber, sliced
  • ¼ cup carrots, shredded
  • 1 tablespoon salsa
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free Ranch salad dressing
  •  1 (6 ½) inch pita pocket
  • 4 oz. extra-lean ground beef (5% fat), cooked
  • 1 cup cantaloupe, cubed

Directions

  1.  Combine beef, spinach, cucumber, and carrots with salsa and Ranch dressing. Mix well.
  2. Cut pita in half. Using your finger, slowly open the pocket so as not to tear the bread.

  4. Serve each pocket with ½ cup cantaloupe.
