"Greek" Beef Pitas

"Greek" Beef Pita's

Recipe adapted from a recipe.

I put the Greek part in quotes because truly, the only thing that makes this even remotely Greekish is the Feta cheese.

1 pound of ground beef (shoot for Grass fed please!)
2 Tablespoons of dried Oregano
dash of salt and pepper

Pita pockets or tortilla wraps
Feta Cheese
Red Onion
Ranch dressing
Truly, any toppings you think sounds good!

Add the Oregano, salt and pepper to the ground beef and roll into small meatballs, then flatten between your hands.  Why?  Well....why not?  LOL  Fry those til brown on both sides.

That's all there is to the cooking part of this meal.  You can warm up your pita pockets or tortilla's if you'd like.  Top the meat with as much or as little as you like.  I like to load up on fresh raw veggies, so mine is topped with lots.  The tortilla's were easier for the kids to hold onto, so we did both.  Plus, the kids LOVE Feta!  And it's nice that they can choose the toppings, the amount, and make these themselves.  Always a hit in our house!

I also served this with a fresh garden salad made up of chopped romaine lettuce, shredded carrot, chopped broccoli, tomato, cucumber, and sunflower seeds.  Cheese, croutons and dressing if desired.

This packed a nice healthy mostly raw food dinner and it was quick and easy.  Lots of the veggies could be crossed from salad to toppings easily and used in both for less waste and leftovers.

Lunch was cup up strawberries and bananas topped with homemade vanilla yogurt.  Our other snacks were kiwi, oranges, apples and pears.

Samantha wanted me to add a pic of the fruit salad she made all by herself:
