Deconstructed Chicken Gyro – 0 Freestyle SmartPoints

This is almost too good to be true. This meal is 0 points. ZERO!! Even if you add pita bread it is minimal points depending on the pita. 

This will be my lunch for the next two days. When I have a lunch plan I’m much more likely to stay on plan. I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that.

I am not going to go through the trouble of getting my lunch ready for work the following day, then not eat it. Plus it saves money!! A lot of money!

If you go out to lunch every day you are spending a lot of money. Not to mention there is typically a lot of extra sodium in that food.

For the tzatziki sauce there is 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil, but there are four servings so that is why it remains 0 points – if you only have one serving. Each serving is 1/4 cup of tzatziki sauce. Personally I think that is plenty of sauce for the meal.

If you want to wrap this up in pita bread it would still be a very low point meal. The pita bread I usually buy is only 2 points per piece.
