With the holidays fast approaching, we can already probably expect to put on a few extra pounds--so hard to resist pumpkin spice everything! However, if you want to stick to cleaner eating before binge-ing out on Thanksgiving (WITHOUT sacrificing taste), then Pita's Republic is your best option!

Pita's Republic is a Mediterranean style chain restaurant local to the Tampa Bay area. It all started with the mission of providing quality, nutritious, delicious food for all. With a friendly, casual environment and an extensive menu that's easy on the wallet, it doesn't get any better! It's a brilliant alternative to fast food when you're in a rush--and we all know we will be, as holidays and responsibilities seems to creep up so quickly at the end of the year.

They have plenty of salads, pitas, gyros, and flatbreads to choose from and offer great specials! One of them is "Meatless Mondays" where you can get any vegetarian pita for just $3.99.

A new special offer they have is one to give thanks to our braves--Gyro's 4 Heroes. Military, law enforcement, and fire fighters will receive half off one of their amazing gyro pitas all during the month of November (simply by showing their law enforcement badge or Military ID). The gyro pita is a classic favorite, made with seasoned beef and lamb, and dressed with Greek tzaziki sauce.

This month, make that easy step in taking control of your health (without self-deprivation of flavor) and make sure to let your friends know about their Gyro's 4 Heroes special!
