1 cut in half- Whole Wheat Pita Bread (Pocket)

(One 6-1/2" Pita Pocket cut in half and stuffed with half of ingredients mixture is 1 serving)
Prepare brown rice as instructed on box. While rice is cooking, put 1 tbsp olive oil in skillet and cook Tilapia filet until it flakes apart. (set aside covered in a dish). Put 1 oz. (2 tbsp) water in skillet and cook bell pepper strips until tender. (I use the same skillet that I cooked the Tilapia in to give the peppers more flavor)
In a medium size bowl, add rice, stir in Tilapia filet (Tilapia should flake apart and mix well with rice) Next add bell pepper strips. Cover and set mixture aside.
Heat Pita bread in microwave for 15 seconds.
Stuff your pita pocket with half of the rice, Tilapia, bell pepper mixture and serve.
