Dukan - What is allowed on a typical day?
This has made me more determined to knuckle down and carry on, I just need to make my meals more adventurous as until now my meals have been a bit too similar and it has become boring, I've also lost track of which are PP or PV days!
So I was pleasantly pleased to find that the Dukan recipes app on my phone has been updated to include allowed/tolerated list which means that I can easily refresh my memory as to what veg/proteins are allowed when I am out shopping/eating out.
I have been discussing this diet with my mum & my dear friend Jo who are both thinking of giving it ago, but whom are yet to pick up copies of the book, so I figured I'd include at the end this week's blog the lists as well as a typical PP and PV day, for them but also for anyone who might be interested.
So until next time take care, and please feel free to leave comments.
Pure Protein Day (PP)
Breakfast: Boiled Egg, Wafer Ham (baked in oven for 8-10 mins) and cottage cheese - with herbs/pepper for flavour.
Mid Morning or Afternoon Snack: Natural Yoghurt sweetened with half a dessertspoon of slender, flavoured with a couple of drops of orange essences and mixed with one and a half tablespoons of oat bran.
Lunch: Salmon/Tuna, flavoured with balsamic vinegar, lemon pepper. Savoury oat bran galette.
Dinner: Chicken breast (1 or 2 depending on the size) coated in flavouring powder/spices and cottage cheese.
Protein Vegetable Day (PV)
Breakfast: Natural yoghurt like PP day.
Lunch: Tuna salad - salad leaves, cucumber, tomato & celery.
Dinner: Three egg omelette - with ham, peppers, mushroom, onion or ham and spinach with 30g low fat cheese and salad.
This is the big safe list, you can eat anything on this list - as much as you want. Just remember to alternate Pure Protein days and Protein & Vegetable days. In the Attack Phase you can only have proteins, no vegetables.
