Egg & Pepper Stuffed Pitas

egg & veggie pitas


I’ve hit a gardening milestone! These #HealthyInUnder30 egg and pepper stuffed pitas are the first meal I’ve made where ALL the vegetables came from my garden. I thought the fresh veggies tasted extra flavorful, but it is possible my brain was trying to justify all the mosquito bites I got watering my garden every day (nothing says sexy legs like multiple bug-bites).


Filling half a whole wheat pita with eggs and veggies is a super easy dinner or breakfast meal. I actually ate one before I started this blog post! There’s something convenient about not having to use a fork with your meal. As an added bonus, this dish is super customizable; you can use whatever veggies you want! I went with an assortment of chopped peppers and a tomato from my garden, then topped it all with some shredded mozzarella. But I’ve also made it with shredded carrots, jalapeno, spinach, and a little cream cheese spread inside the pita –delicious! If I’m really trying to save time I’ll make scrambled eggs in the microwave and use raw vegetables. So pick your favorite way to make scrambled eggs and your veggie combo of choice, and you’ll have a healthy meal ready in no time!
