What I Ate Wednesday

Hello there everyone!

One of my favorite things to do is to exercise. Sounds crazy right? But I love the healthy lifestyle. I love pushing myself to new limits and eating delicious healthy food. I've made it my goal lately to be aware of what I put in my body and what I do with it to keep it in shape. One of the wonderful things I've discovered in the blogging world is called What I Ate Wednesday. Jenn at Peas and Crayons does this every Wednesday and will tell you what it's all about. It's a good start to really thinking of what you put in your body everyday rather than mindlessly shoveling food in your mouth. So here we go!

Doesn't sound so hard to record the food you eat right? Try it for a week, you'll notice how more conscious you are of what you eat! And that recipe I promised you? Here you go!

Greek Salad Pitas with Feta Spread and Turkey (makes 4 sandwiches)
recipe by Ellie Krieger
For the spread:3/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (4 oz)
3 TB nonfat plain yogurt
1 TB fresh lemon juice
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

For the sandwich:4 whole-wheat pita breads
4 large pieces romaine lettuce, torn in half
1 English cucumber, sliced into half moons
1/4 cup lightly packed fresh mint leaves
3/4 pound thinly sliced roasted turkey breast

Combine feta and yogurt with a fork. Stir in lemon juice, oregano, lemon zest, and pepper. Keep the spread in an airtight container in a fridge for up to 5 days.
To make the sandwich cut a pita in half, line each pocket with half a lettuce leaf. Spread 2 heaping tablespoons of feta spread into each pocket. Fill each pocket with about 6 cucumber slices, 4 or 5 mint leaves, and 2 or 3 slices of turkey.

My personal changes: I used Greek yogurt instead of plain yogurt and it had a really great consistency. I didn't use a cucumber because I forgot to buy one (whoooops!) and I didn't use mint leaves because I don't like fresh mint in sandwiches.

Please make these! They're delicious!
