Quick & Easy Low Carb Turkey Pita Pocket

Quick & Easy Low Carb Turkey Pita Pocket

A few weeks ago, I went to City Subs located in Park Slope, Brooklyn for the first time. Let’s just say Subway has nothing on this subs only establishment. Each sub is made on freshly baked Italian bread, and served toasted or cold based on your preference. You can adorn your sandwich with various toppings such as cheese, peppers, oil, vinegar, and much more!

I ordered the Dean Street sub, and my mouth is literally watering as type this post to explain to you how delicious this sub was! It was so delicious that I devoured it before I could take any pictures. It’s crusty sesame bread is baked to perfection, then mayo is layer on top, along with thinly heavenly slices of roasted turkey. Then peperjack cheese is melted on top and roasted pepper seals the deal! This sandwich is amazing!

I recreated my own healthy version of the Dean Street below! It a low carb roasted pita, that is both satisfyingly crunchy and healthy!

Paleo Zucchini Fritters

Paleo Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini fritters have become one of my latest obsessions this summer! They are crisp, crunchy, and easy to make.

Paleo Zucchini Fritters

You’ll need:

1 cup Otto’s Cassava Flour

2 eggs

1/4 tsp Parsley

1/4 tsp Oregano

1/4 tsp Basil

1/4 tsp Paprika

1/4 Garlic Salt

1/4 Arrowroot Flour

2 Shredded Zucchini

1 tbsp Coconut Oil


Whisk 2 eggs in a bowl. Next in a separate bowl pour 1 cup of Otto’s Cassava flour. Then place all of your herbs, eggs, arrowroot flour, and zucchini (*before placing zucchini into the mixture take a paper towel and drain and access water) into the flour, and take a spatula and mix everything together. Pour 1 tbsp of coconut oil in a saucepan on medium heat. Scoop zucchini mixture and place it into the saucepan. Cook each side until it is a golden crisp color.

*Please note that arrowroot is a plant based starch, which is used to thicken a recipe. If you are trying to monitor your carbohydrate intake, you may want to skip this ingredient. Also, to reduce the moisture of this recipe, make sure you strain the zucchini and use one egg instead of two.

The Perfect Topping: Cassava Chips

Whenever I try to eat healthy, the one snack that I miss eating the most are chips! Today I came up with a guilt free recipe for cassava chips using Otto’s Natural Cassava Flour. These chips are perfect to eat with dips like hummus, salsa, and guacamole. 

Cassava Chips

You’ll Need:

1/2 cup Otto’s Natural Cassava Flour

1tbsp Coconut Oil

3/4 cup warm water

1/4 tsp FlavorGod Garlic Lover’s Seasoning

1 tbsp Arrowroot Flour

1 tbsp Ground Flaxseed

1 piece of Parchment Paper

1 Plattin Pan

Avocado Oil Spray


Mix water,cassava flour, arrowroot flour, flaxseed, and coconut oil together, until the flour turns into a dough ball. If the dough feels too moist add more cassava flour. Next separate dough into 10 balls. Then place a ball onto a piece of parchment paper, and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough into a circle. Heat your plattin pan, and pour a little canola oil into your pan. Place your cassava tortilla onto the plattin. Flip the tortilla once bubbles start to form at the top. Once the tortilla has a golden hue remove it from the pan, and place it onto a plate and cover it with a damp paper towel. After the tortilla has finished cooling use a pizza cutter and cut the tortilla into small pieces. Spray some Avocado Oil and 1/4 tsp of FlavorGod seasoning onto tortilla pieces. Place tortilla pieces onto a greased cookie sheet, and put in the oven. Select the broiler setting on your oven. Cook your cassava chips no more than for five minutes or less.
