Good question... I dunno what is the answer. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could answer your Dukan Diet question..
OMG- that sounds yummy! I really like the shiritaki noodles, will have to try this recipe out soon.
(it's like having dessert for dinner! LOL).
This sounds really good - especially with Passover coming in a few weeks..
I am wondering if 1/2 of it could be used for a protein serving. 1/4 cup cottage cheese is 6 grams of protein plus the noodles havve 1 gram of protein. It would be on the low end of the range but you could have higher protein for the rest of your choices for the day..
Any thoughts on this?..
The egg whites have protein too I would think. It may better to use half for a protein serving. I think if you ate it for dinner, you'd be hungry, not enough protein..
Thanks Jen.that was my thinking, but I wasn't sure. In this case though, the egg whites will only add a bit of protein because there is not that much in the whole dish (3 tblsp). The bulk of the protein is coming from the cottage cheese..
OK - one Dukan Diet dish for Passover (I started Dukan Diet last year when Passover ended, so this is my first year trying to do both - not so easy)..
I don't know much about Passover (I'm greek orthodox, which has it's own holiday challenges), but what kinds of meals do you need? We can think of something..
Thanks Jen. I have friends who are Greek Orthodox so I know how hard that is this tine of year. Passover is 8 days long, and under ordinary circumstances it is a struggle to think of what to make after a while. I am not religious, but I do follow the tradition of no starch products except for matzoh and potatoes, so breakfasts will be the most difficult. I have enough dinners that are not pasta based to manage and can think of a few things for lunch that will be OK. I am sure there is a link or two here that discusses it, I just haven't done a search yet.
This recipe is actually what brought Passover to mind..
I'll have to think on it for awhile. That might be tough! But, if you can't get some recipes, you could always just flex. You might be short a few carbs, but it's only 8 days..
I found some passover threads:.
This is the search result for more threads:.
Thanks Again! I figured I would have to do a lot of flexing and I guess after almost a year it should be OK. I am invited to two seders, which involves a lot of high fat, high carb foods but I will manage those the way I managed Thanksgiving and other big family dinners. The good thing is that Passover wine is not so good so that won't be an issue..
I will probably flex breakfasts and substitute fruit and protein for desserts (lots of smoothie ice cream). Lunches will be easy.mashed potatoes, cream of broccoli soup, tomato soup, caesar salad and tuna (with 1/2 board of whole wheat matzoh - about 55 calories) will be okay for lunch. Some dinners will fit - grilled chicken, burgers and sloppy joe mix (over a small baked potato) and the rest I can flex. I am off for the first 6 days, so it will definitely be easier..
I will definitely be giving this a lot more thought as it gets closer, but at least I have some kind of plan. Thanks again...
You're welcome. Drink lots of water and exercise. You'd need 3500 calories to gain a pound! :-).
I made this for dinner tonight and had it alongside some steamed baby zucchini. It was delicious, although it came out a bit liquidy at the bottom. I'm thinking maybe I should cook it a few extra minutes next time? I'm also thinking I'm trying it with crushed pineapple or raisins instead of peaches...
You may want to make sure your noodles are dry before starting. They need to be very dry..
Hi there.....these shirataki noodles..............never saw them, never heard of them until now..............what do they count as and where do I find them..........thank you in advance..
One whole package (a cup) is just 40 calories so essentially they count as 2 free foods; however, I think of them as my carb substitute. They are a wonderful substitute for high calorie/carb pasta! I find them in the asian section of my local grocery store, Wegmans...
Do they sell them in stores like stop and shop or shoprite..
Is that a cookbook? Think I've heard about it and was interested in getting it, but had forgotten the name...
