Friday Food: The Perfect (and Healthy) BLT


The height of tomato season has come and gone. As my final homage to my favorite food I am presenting the Perfectly healthy BLT.

Image placeholder title

Whole Wheat Pitas
Tomatoes (ripe and in season please)
Arugula (washed and dried)
Turkey Bacon

  • Broil the turkey bacon on a cookie sheet in your oven (I find it is impossible to get turkey bacon crisp any other way). Then split a small pita in half and toast.
  • This sandwich is mostly about the tomato (as it should be). Slice it thick and only use the very best.
  • Spread the mayo on the pita, layer your tomato and then the bacon, top with arugula and serve warm.

What were you up to this week? Bonus points if it involves tomato.
