One pita = one serving

It’s like the famous Trojan horse all over again – but  instead of a vicious bunch of hairy, sweaty and smelly soldiers leaping out (much to the surprise of all involved), these Greek Pitas come bursting out with delicious (not to mention much less dangerous) ingredients, perfect as a snack or healthy meal.

Would you really turn down such a gift? Especially as they’re full of iron, important to keep you fresh and focused (1). And stocked with vitamin A and vitamin C, important for your immune system and a whole host of other benefits? Didn’t think so…

A quick note regarding the nutrition label: one serving is one filled pita.
