Baked Spicy Pizza Chips (2 servings)

Whole-wheat pita is a great source of complex carbohydrates, which provide fuel to your body and lots of added fiber to stabilize your blood sugar and ensure you're not running to the pantry or vending machine for another snack and hour after your first. The olive oil offers nice omega fats and flavor, while the herbs add vitamins and phytochemicals, and anti-inflammatory properties.

  • 1 whole-wheat pita pocket
  •  3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp red pepper
  • ¼ tsp sea salt or garlic salt
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese or vegan substitute

Mix oil with dried herbs and salt. Split pita pocket into its two halves and spread each with the oil mixture. Cut each half into 6 triangles and place on a lined cookie sheet. Bake in a preheated oven for 5 to 7 minutes at 400 degrees or until golden brown and crispy. Half way through baking, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and allow to melt, being careful not to burn.
