I got the "Eat Right Every Time Guide" for the Abs diet I am reading through and got this idea there. Take a whole wheat pita (I found some that were 60 calories and whole grain at Walmart), and warm up roast beef lunchmeat. I made a sauce out of plain ff yogurt, diced cucumbers, dill, a splash of vinegar and a little stevia. I also added lettuce and tomato and sauteed red onions to it. It turned out really good and was a good substitute for gyros.

Hi - this does sound good. What exactly is stevia and where do you get it?

Stevia is a sweetner that has no affect on the glycemic index, unlike splenda. I got it in a box of 50 packets for $5.99 at Meijer. It is also available in a liquid form.

Is the stevia (or other sweetner) necessary for the taste? It actually sounds good without a sweetner.

I think it would be fine without it too. I did just the ff plain yogurt and cucumbers, but that taste alone wasn't good to me at all. It might have been fine on the sandwich though. So then I added the little vinegar, dill and stevia. I'm not sure how they make the traditional taziki (sp?) sauce.
