Without prescribing to any particular 'diet', we tend to gravitate towards what is commonly referred to as a Mediterranean diet, full of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olives, olive oils, fish and wonderful breads and cheeses. I guess we consider it more of a lifestyle than a diet. We focus on fresh, flavorful and healthy and the Mediterranean offers many wonderful options. We've written more in-depth about how to live the Mediterranean diet.

When I am looking for a quick lunch or light dinner, pizza on a pita is a 'go to' in our house. Pitas make a perfect crust for an individual pizza. This quick and easy pizza has loads of flavor and is a great, healthy alternative to a fast food or processed, packaged lunch/dinner. Be creative with the ingredients!  Grilled chicken would be a great addition to this dish if you want to add a healthy protein, and spinach is a natural pairing with feta cheese. We used Tomato Flakes to sweeten this recipe and add great texture, and Dried Basil for its light peppery taste and classic Mediterranean fragrance.
