Default Tofu, flavored cream cheese, and spinach pita

Tofu is a great protein source that pretty much takes on the flavor of whatever spices and seasoning one adds to it. You can adapt this suggestion to your liking using your favorite bread, cheese, and seasonings. This was my super-easy lunch today:

Tofu, tomato and basil cream cheese, and spinach pita


Ingredients:

--half a pita bread (mine was low carb)
--one wedge Laughing Cow Light Mozzarella Sun-Dried Tomato and Basil cream cheese
--3 oz. extra firm tofu (well drained of any liquid and sliced very thin)
--seasoning to taste (I used Mrs. Dash Salt-Free Table Blend)
fresh spinach to taste

Directions:

Spread the inside of the pita evenly with the cream cheese
Cut the tofu into very thin slices and sprinkle liberally on both sides with seasoning.
Place the tofu and spinach into the bread and enjoy.
