Turkey, Spinach Cranberry Cream Cheese Pitas

Turkey, spinach cranberry cream cheese pitas are a simple, flavorful lunch of snack. Our gym had a Christmas party last month that included catered meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  I wasn’t aware of this perk until my yoga instructor mentioned it after our 11:00 am class, but when I heard about the free food I was obviously all in. As much as I love to cook, I equally love a break;  I missed the breakfast but enjoyed the lunch and brought my husband and kids back for dinner too. Among other things, the caterers offered these delicious turkey, spinach and cranberry cream cheese pitas at lunch and I think I ate about ten because they were that good.  I have been craving them ever since and  have created my own copycat recipe.
