It mightÂ look complicated, but it is just a quick easy healthy recipe to help you keep your weight loss diet plan.

A Mediterranean Pita BreadÂ with Arugula and Cottage Cheese
It is a balanced meal, including protein, carbs, fiber.Â You can modify some of the ingredients.
-Â 1 Pita bread (preferably whole wheat pita bread)
-Â 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese (100 cal. 14 gr protein)
-Â Fresh arugula
-Â Fresh tomato
-Â Fresh red onion (you can use white onion too)
-Â Shredded cheese (garnish)
-Â Salt and pepper to taste
-Â a. If you like meatballs, you can prepare them a day inÂ advance.
Â Â b. I use meatless meatballs (18 grm protein)
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â (1 minute to warm)
Â Â Â c.Â You can also skip meatballs and just fill with your preferred
Â Â Â Â Â Â vegetables.
- Divide a pita bread in two parts.Â Fill each with cottage cheese, tomato, onion, your choice of meatballs, meatless meatballs, or preferred lean meat, such as chicken or turkey. Salt and pepper to taste.Â You might add some extra virgin olive oil.
You can accompany with a red glass of wine, or your preferred drink (water, herbal tea, fresh juice)Â I prefer my red glass of wine.
I had two corns with parmiggiano Reggiano (parmesan cheese).
Although, I only ate one because I was full after eating the 2 pita breads.
I had pineapple garnished with a red cherry and fresh mint.Â
Pineapple helps to boost your metabolism because it is rich in vitamin C. It protects your body from free radical damange boosting your immune system..Â Moreover, pineapple is naturally sweet and will help you curb your high caloric sugar cravings.Â 1 cup of diced pineapple has about 80 calories.**
*** Pineapple is a friendly weight loss food.Â It contains an enzyme called "bromelain," which help you digest both proteins and fats.Â The enzyme helps bread down the amino acid bonds in proteins, resulting in good digestion. It helps you get rid of a bloatedÂ stomach because it is anti inflamatory.
After your meal, you can have your choice of:
-Â Herbal tea
