Veggie Whole Wheat Pita Pockets

Makes four sandwiches

4 whole-wheat pita pockets

8 to 9 slices ripe, firm, beefsteak tomatoes

8 thin slices medium red onion, halved

About 1 cup baby arugula, washed and spun dry

1/3 cup hummus (your favorite brand or homemade)

Advance preparation for a pita pocket:

Cut the pita pocket in half and stuff into a zip-lock plastic sandwich bag.

Core and halve a tomato, place the cut side down on a cutting board and cut into one-quarter-inch thick slices.   Wrap two slices for each half of the pocket in plastic wrap and slip them into a zip lock bag for extra insurance.   Likewise, cut the onion into as thin a slice as possible, wrap in plastic and slip them in bag with the tomato.   Stuff the arugula into a separate plastic bag. Fill a small plastic container with hummus and securely seal the lid.

Another combo; Slices of green or red bell pepper, cheddar cheese, and marinated artichoke hearts with a few drops of mustard vinaigrette drizzled on top.
