Street Style Gyros
One of the most important ways to get your metabolism back on track and burning fat again is to get back to real food. Eating real food is so important for the repair process we have to accomplish. I really want you to take a leap of faith with me and try cooking incredible recipes like this.
Prep time: 20 minutes
Total time: 1 hour 20 minutes – 2 hours 20 minutes (includes marinating time)
Zest and juice of 1/2 a lemon
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes*
Fast Metabolism tortillas (or sprouted-grain pita halves)
Combine the first ten ingredients (zest through black pepper) in a large bowl. Add the chicken, stir to coat, cover, and marinate in the fridge for an hour or two.
Preheat a grill to medium heat (or preheat your broiler, with the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat). Thread the chicken onto skewers and grill or broil until cooked through, about 8 minutes total, turning once or twice. Serve in Fast Metabolism tortillas or sprouted-grain pita halves with all the fixings.
*For a vegetarian version, combine 2 cups cooked or canned, drained and rinsed chickpeas with the marinade, spread on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake at 350℉ for 20 minutes.
