Salmon Fritatta

Posted in Dukan Diet, Recipe with tags , on April 27, 2012 by Dobsessed

I made this today (I’m on day 4 on the Dukan Diet and I’ve lost 1.4kg) – I had smoked salmon, and eggs, so decided to make this.  This recipe is allowed in all stages in the Dukan Diet.

The good thing about this fritatta is that it’s quite light (made with no fats or butters) and I didn’t add any salt – I like my food well seasoned and this seriously did not need it.  It tasted really great too! You can easily serve this to people who aren’t dieting with a side salad or maybe some potatoes, they wouldn’t even notice.

I tend not to measure anything so all measurements for ingredients are approximate.

Ingredients

5 eggs

2-3 tablespoons of light cottage cheese

2 tablespoons of skim milk powder

1/2 cup of hot water (not boiling)

1 package of Smoked Salmon (I can’t remember the weight…maybe 50g?)

4 or so of spring onion, chopped into 4 cm lengths

pepper

 

Mix the cottage cheese, skim milk powder and water together until there are no pockets of skim milk powder.  Once missed, add all the ingredients together and stir.

Line an oven safe dish or a pan with baking paper so that you don’t need to use oil.  In my case, I used a nonstick saucepan and wrapped foil around the handle so I can shove it in the oven.

Pour mixture in and bake in 180 degree oven until lightly brown on top.

 

 

 

Dukan Diary: Day 8 and what I’ve been eating

Posted in Diet Blog, Dukan Diet, What I ate with tags , on August 24, 2011 by Dobsessed

Starting weight: 83.8kg (184.4lbs)

Today’s weight: 80.4g (176.9 lbs)

Today’s weight loss: 0.5kg

Total weight loss: 3.4kg (7.5lbs)

Exercise: 40 minutes Body Combat class – first time ever, thought I was going to vomit!

So, weight loss today! Woo hoo! half a kilo, not bad.  So after a week and a day, I’ve nearly lost 3.5kg! I really can’t wait to get below that 80kg mark.

Whenever I get over that 80kg threshold, I don’t know why…I just seem to not be able to get under it and then I just gain and gain and gain…so I’m only half a kilo off, so I’m hoping I can smash it today.

I keep saying that I haven’t been hungry but I don’t talk about what I eat, and honestly, I’m amazed that I register weightloss with the amount of food I eat! I think next week, for a whole week, I’m going to document everything I eat, so that you can see the portion size too.

Here’s what I’ve been eating yesterday and today:

Monday:

Oatbran, Chicken pieces (thighs), yoghurt, more chicken pieces, hot chocolate, Egg salad, lots of water, lots of teas, a coffee, a coke zero, and a square of chocolate

Today:

Oatbran, a bunch of asparagus tips, Broccoli soup, Cauliflower Cottage Pie with cheese, coke zero, 1 Rolo, a prawn cocktail, 2 fillets of salmon (with sweet soy), another bunch of asparagus, tea, coffee and a huge mug of hot chocolate (options)
