Pita Breakfast Sandwich Recipe

This pita breakfast sandwich makes an easy meal for busy mornings!

I love a good, protein-filled breakfast in the morning. There’s just something about it that gets my day off on the right foot. So I look for different ways to serve up the same old eggs because nothing will kill a clean eating plan faster than boredom.

Clean Eating Breakfast Pita

When you’re on the go, a pita is a fantastic “grab-n0-go” meal. You can stuff them with just about anything and you’ll feel confident that you have a nutritious breakfast. Just be sure the pita bread is 100% whole wheat. If you have a Trader Joe’s in your area, they carry them, but I’m sure other stores do too.

Just do yourself a favor and eat these at your desk. As portable as these are, they do fall apart when you’re eating them. Not so great in the car. Trust me. I know.

  1. Hiya, I clicked the link for the DIY Clean Pitas and was lost at sea O.O!!

      Chik – Sorry, I removed the link. I had to temporarily take that recipe down to retest. I’ll post it again soon.

  2. Pitas are so much fun. You can stuff all sorts of good things into them. Half of a small one makes a great lunch for the kidlets at school, too. Scrambled egg is a great idea. For lunch a small salad with whatever protein you like in a pita half means no fork needed to eat it.

  3. When my son was little I used to make him “Egg McMommys”-scrambled eggs and cheese on a 100% whole wheat English muffin. I guess the cheese kept them from being too fally aparty. We used them as burger buns, too. They worked better than bread and were the only other thing I could find back then (late 70s-early 80s) that was 100% whole wheat, not just caramel colored white bread labeled “wheat”. I was thrilled when I finally found 100% whole wheat pitas.

  6. Hey love the clean eating recipies. With the clean eating breakfast pitas could you make them ahead of time and freeze them? I’m just always on the go an trying to stay healthy by meal prepping everything.

      Jesse – I haven’t tried. I would make the filling and freeze a small amount. See how it does. What worries me the most is reheating…
