Eating healthy, much like playing the computer game Minesweeper, requires hours of practice, diligent calculations, and the ability to sidestep untrustworthy boxes that could explode in your face. Notch a high score in nutritional value with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of stuffed-pita fare at Extreme Pita.
This clean, eco-friendly eatery's menu is populated with nutritional and nourishing palate-pleasers, all packing a punch of personalized perfection that won't lead to paunches or potbellies. Each tasty creation is quickly prepared from fresh ingredients upon ordering, and a friendly, helpful staff is on hand to walk nervous neophytes through the ordering process. Fill up on a freestyle wrap ($5.49 for a 6", $6.49 for a 9"), such as the grilled chicken or the philly cheesesteak, and top it with any of the multitude of dressings, including tzatziki, barbecue sauce, and honey mustard. Globally minded gastronomists can tongue-travel with international eats such as the fiesta mexicana ($5.49 for a 6", $6.49 for a 9") or the thai beef ($5.49 for a 6", $6.49 for 9"). This Groupon is good for dine-in, carryout, or delivery (downtown area only), allowing hungry hominids to eat well whether fully bipedal or stuck to their armchair with glue.
Brothers Alex and Mark Rechichi always enjoyed constructing hearty, Dagwood-esque sandwiches, but noticed that most of the breads they employed in these edible masterpieces literally crumbled under the pressure of supporting a glorious quantity of healthy meats, veggies, cheeses, and sauces. Naturally, the brothers fell in love when they discovered the sturdy pita, which was both nutritious and versatile. Flatbread in hands, the two brothers founded Extreme Pita in 1997 with a goal of delivering enormous, structurally sound sandwiches to the masses. Since then, the eatery has spawned franchises throughout the U.S. and Canada, where customers can enjoy a variety of pita-based creations ranging from made-to-order wraps to pizza-style flat bakes to jalapeño cheddar chips. Extreme Pita's locations put an emphasis on reducing their carbon footprint by implementing an array of green practices, such as recycling and reusing, using energy-efficient light bulbs, and warming pitas with the sighs of a dragon.
