EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Decrease the beef to 1/2 pound and fill each pita with more peppers, onions or mushrooms to fit more vegetables into your meal plan. Look for lower-sodium deli beef to reduce the sodium per serving, too.

Try 1/2 cup Old El Paso® fat-free refried beans and a small apple to round out the meal at 3 Carbohydrate Choices.

Sprinkle the pitas with chopped fresh cilantro.
