With having Kidney Failure, the hardest part is a diet of low salt and low processed foods. So even though I love going out and not having to cook for a meal. It makes it a lot harder!
Mike and I headed to review Pita Pit at 1362 Lambton Mall Road in Sarnia Ontario
I was excited to review a place that would give me an healthy alternative to fast food.
I had never been to Pita Pit before but Mike had been to the one previously in Cambridge, Ontario. So he knew what to expect.
We met with Barb McAllister the Operator of this location and right away and she explained the choices to me.
She also gave me a nutritional guide to help me with my low salt diet. A lot of restaurants don’t have everything listed and I have to make choices based on what I think it might contain. This booklet made my choices easier and allowed me to know exactly the levels of sodium in each ingredient or sauce. (I left the guide in my car so now I have a quick reference before heading to Pita Pit!)
Pita Pit has options for every dietary restrictions: CLICK HERE to see what kind of pitas are available for your dietary restrictions.
I decided on a Chicken Breast Pita and Mike ordered a BBQ Ribs Pita.
You can also decide to put onions, green peppers and mushrooms on the grill. Because I can’t have mushrooms with my kidney diet, I had only onions and sweet peppers on the grill and Mike requested all three.
I love the fact that the meat and certain vegetables are grilled. Other places just warm it up in a microwave. Then it tastes like rubber. Here it tastes fresh.
When you go to decide what vegetables to have on your pita, there are a lot of choices. I like that there are different kinds of lettuce (Lettuce, Romaine ) there are different kinds of cheese (Swiss, Feta, Cheddar and Parmesan.)various sauces and vegetables. You can make a different pita each time.
The best part is it is a healthier choice than fast food but faster! I couldn’t believe how fast they were doing our pitas and the whole time they were pleasant. It didn’t matter how busy it got, the staff was pleasant and fast!
I plan on taking my children next time for a family supper out and I already know what my next pita will be!
We also got to enjoy the Swedish Snowballs that are Gluten-Free, Nut-free and only 73 calories! Now you don’t have to feel guilty about treating yourself. (oh and of course your family)
They were a chocolate coconut treat with a creamy centre. It was a perfect end to a great meal.
Pita Pit also has smoothies if you want to make a complete healthy meal. Mike went with chocolate milk and I went with a Sprite. (I know not the most healthiest for me but sometimes you need to treat yourself!)
