My Favorite Low-Carb Pita Bread (and Recipe Ideas Using Pita Bread)
My Favorite Low-Carb Pita Bread is this Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pita Bread! These whole wheat pitas are something I eat sparingly, but but they come in handy for a quick lunch or dinner. They aren’t even sold in Utah, but I like them so much I buy a package of three from Amazon.com and store in the freezer.
In August of 2005 I visited Rhode Island, and discovered a low-carb pita bread that was so full of healthy ingredients and delicious that when I came home I wrote about Joseph’s Bakery Oat Bran and Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread on my relatively-new food blog. I brought some of the pita bread home with me from that trip, but I couldn’t find them anywhere in Utah.
And I might have forgotten about them, except that other fans of the pita bread kept leaving comments on the original post asking where they could get this tasty and relatively low-carb pita bread! Although I checked regularly to find them, for years there was nowhere to order them online. But obviously that’s not the end of the story.
A few years after that one of my best food blogging friends was the lovely Lydia from The Perfect Pantry, who lived in Rhode Island, and she offered to send me some of my favorite low-carb pita bread, which was her own favorite as well. Meanwhile, someone left a comment letting me know the Joseph’s Bakery products were soon going to be available online. And then a few years later I was so excited to discover that I could buy Joseph’s Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas at Amazon.com. (affiliate link)
Since then I’ve been buying the three-pack from Amazon every couple of months and keeping them in the freezer. Joseph’s Bakery Low-Carb Flax, Oat Bran, and Whole Wheat Pitas are delicious, nutritious, high in protein and fiber, low in fat, and relatively low in carbs. (The regular size pita has 10 carbs, but 4 grams of fiber and 0 sugars for 6 net carbs. There’s also a mini size pita with even less carbs.) Of course this pita bread isn’t Keto or gluten-free, but for anyone who’s following a carb-conscious or low-glycemic eating plan, they’re perfect to stuff with something healthy and eat occasionally for a quick meal.
Here’s What I Make With Low-Carb Pita Bread:
Low-Carb Egg Salad in Pita with Green Olives, Green Onions, and Dijon is tasty and quick to make, and green olive fans will love these. One pita cut in half and stuffed with egg salad is more than enough for a meal for me.
For years and years I’ve been a huge fan of this Fattoush Lebanese Salad with Sumac and Pita Chips and this is something I make every summer when I have fresh mint and parsley in the herb garden.
Middle Eastern Beef and Hummus Pita Rounds do have some carbs in the hummus besides the Pita Bread, but you can get away with a pretty thin layer of hummus if you prefer. Or skip the hummus and eat the spicy middle eastern beef in side the pita bread for a different take on this tasty recipe.
I got the recipe for this Amazingly Easy Greek Dip or Salad from my trainer Wendy, and it’s so tasty. When I took it to a party people ate it with a fork when the Pita Bread was gone, so that’s why I named it Greek Salad or Dip!
Easy Spicy Avocado in Low-Carb Pita Bread is seriously about as easy as it gets for something tasty to stuff into low-carb Pita Bread, but I’d love this for lunch any time I had an avocado hanging around.
And finally, please don’t let the very old photos stop you from making these Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Burgers! These are so tasty and the herb-filled turkey burgers would also be delicious served in lettuce wraps if you wanted a bit fewer carbs.
