In an effort to “detox” my body this week for the holiday eating I indulged in, I’m making an effort to eat mostly low carb/high protein, and as little processed food as possible. One dish that will be on my menu is this Chicken and Garbanzo Bean Pesto Salad Recipe for just 6 Points +.

Gyros. I ADORE them. And when I used to live in Los Angeles, my husband and I used to go to this amazing little restaurant that sold the most delicious gyros. It was right around the corner from our apartment, and we used to walk there VERY REGULARLY for dinner. I remember how I used to stand there and literally salivate as I watched them slice that beautifully tender meat off the rotisserie.

Still plenty of summertime left to fire up that grill and start cooking! On of my favorite Weight Watchers Grilling Recipes is this Grilled Middle Eastern Turkey Kebabs with Cucumber Yogurt Dip.

In college, I used to LOVE eating cold, leftover Chinese food, straight from the carton in the fridge. In fact, Chinese food is one of the very few leftovers, originally served hot, that I eat cold. My favorite is the chow mein noodles…..MMMMMMM. When cold, leftover Chinese food wasn’t an option, I often ordered cold noodle salads at my favorite Oriental restaurants.
