Low Fat Lunch Recipe

Pita Pockets

Pita Bread

You don't need to use margarine or butter in this low fat lunch recipe.

That's good, because you can have 2 Pita Pockets for lunch (or even 3, for just 6 points!).

The combination of ingredients is not only healthy, but simple (easy to get), and yet, very tasty.

Perhapes one of the most beneficial substances you get in this sandwich is Omega-3, which comes with the tuna. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown clinically to minimse blood clots and make blood less sticky.

Omega-3 fats can lower triglyceride levels and blood pressure. It also helps to reduce the levels of bad fat build up in our blood vessels.

I must say, though, that the amount of tuna in canned in brine is greatly reduced compared to the amounts found in tuna canned in oil.

If you want extra Omega-3 in your sandwich, you should use tuna in oil. Of course, you have to take the new amount of fat into account for the purpose of counting how much fat you consume with your sandwich.
