Tonight’s tea was a winner, I have worked out how to make a low cal low fat gyros plate, with less than half the calories of a standard gyros wrap.
We absolutely love Greek food, can not get enough of it, but for someone who’s now loosing weight a few thing have had to be omitted, especially the amazing delicious olive oil.
Iv had a play around with seasoning and using water instead of oil, and have created a recipe that had a very similar taste to the gyros that I do love.
I did not make the pitta bread that goes with an gyros as that would add a lot of calories to the meal and I do not think it would taste as amazing as the real thing,(trying to make it low fat low cal) the bread is a definite no no for me ☹️.
By using oven chips ( check lots of nutrition labels to buy the lowest cal & fat possible), cut out a huge amount of calories.
The tzatziki was also homemade and I used fresh lemon juice instead of oil to thin out the yogurt.
My whole plate was less than 400 calories!!! So a totally delicious guilt free meal.
Nothing will compare to authentic delicious Greek food but this is a very close 2nd.
