The dough also rises?

I swig down acidophilus pills as if they were candy, four a day of Probioplus DDS, the strongest ones I've found. They really do help reduce the number and severity of my usual infections. (It's too bad that they don't have a hechsher/rabbinical seal certifying that they're kosher, but I give myself leeway when my health is involved.)

I've often wondered, though, why it's so hard to find yeast-free grain products. Seriously, how much does a pita bread need to rise, that it needs yeast? And pretzels??? Even the skinniest fat-free pretzel sticks contain yeast. Why?

But check this out--I finally found my first-ever yeast free lavash bread, a tortilla-style flatbread intended for making "wraps.") The brand, such as it is, is "All Natural Roll-Ups" (with a VHK/Va'ad HaKashrut of Boston hechsher), straight from the Whole Foods health food chain. Time to party hearty!

Yeah, good stuff! I brought home some beef kabobs, with a side of Israeli salad, from Kosher Delight the other night, and we made Middle Eastern wraps using the lavash. Yum! And they're healthy, too--I got the whole-wheat ones.

i remember being offended when i saw some non-kosher big fast food chain advertising pita sandwiches... where the food was wrapped up in the pita, instead of stuffed inside it.

Relax, Steg--that's the Greek-style way of using pita. Greek-style pita has no pocket in the interior, and is used as a wrap.
