As a note to my readers: the AARP and American Diabetes Association gave me this product to try and compensated me for my review. All opinions from here forward are my own, and I only recommend products I truly believe in. 

Last week I told you guys about the Let’s Be Well Box, and how I’ve been using the tools in the box.

One of my favorite items in the box is the 12-Week Diabetes Cookbook. You guys know I have an obsession, and a library full of books dedicated to learning how to cook good meals. I was so excited to be able to add this book to my collection – especially when it comes to making meals that are good for my blood sugar.

As someone with Type-2 diabetes, I’m always very conscious about my carbohydrate intake. I’m usually looking for foods with a low glycemic index, or that are packed with complex carbohydrates if I do have something that’s a bit carb heavy.

I picked this recipe from the book for you all – it’s one of my favorites when we eat Greek food! I learned to make Gyros at home from the cookbook, and I hope you like the recipe, we sure did.

Don’t forget that this book is a part of the Let’s Be Well Box. You can get yours here.
