    Ok so I tried this, making a few little tweeks like more peppers and cucumbers instead of what I don’t like. Also, I found a multi grain tortilla that had less calories than the pitas since I have no luck with pitas I buy at the store since they always seem to tear and fall apart. It is really good. Thanks Meg.
