Apple n' Cheddar Tuna Pitas
I needed to vamp up my lunches in order to have more fuel for my half marathon training. So, I was on the hunt this weekend when looking through my magazines. I found this tuna pita recipe on a Hellmann's advertisement in the new Cooking Light magazine. I loved this pita and will make the recipe again next week with chicken instead of tuna. Enjoy!
