Scrumptious Weekend Breakfast

I love having a leisurely weekend breakfast that makes me feel like I’m cheating on my diet. This weekend I made my husband pancakes so I had to fix my Dukan Gelatte. It was my BEST one yet. I think the only diffence was that I used Baking Soda (which is called for in the recipe) rather than Baking Powder. The pancake came out very plump and puffy. It was SO decadent. I’ve got pictures posted of it. For those of you who haven’t started eating this staple of Dukan Dieting, here is my version:

2 Whole Eggs
1 Tbsp. Quark (yes, I found it here in the USA at “Jungle Jim’s http://www.junglejims.com )
1/2 tsp Baking SODA
1/2 tsp vanilla
2-3 tbsp Oatbran

Mix it all together into a bowl until there are no Quark-y lumps. Pour into a hot omelette pan sprayed with a bit of butter flavored cooking spray (like PAM). Let it cook just like a pancake turning over after a couple of minutes. It should be a nice “pancake-looking” golden brown on both sides.
Serve with your favorite Sugarfree Pancake Syrup.

For an extra treat, spoon some nonfat flavored yogurt on top. I also used about 1/2 tsp. Brummel & Brown margarine. My husband and I both had a side of turkey bacon cooked really crispy. It was heavenly!

Not doing too good at blogging daily…switching to the 2011PostaWeek club

Starting this week…I’m posting weekly in 2011. Let’s see how I do with THIS New Year’s Resolution. Truthfully, I’m more excited about finally going over the 1/2 way mark in my weight loss goal. I can see the finish line. Every day, I go into my closet and find something in there that I haven’t been able to wear in a LONG time. Then when I put it on, I find out it is BAGGY. I’m really going to have to do a closet makeover this weekend.

Daily Progress (Thursday)

Filed under: Recipes — Brenda @ 8:59 pm

I’m down another lb…(.8 lbs) since Monday. Close enough. I’m really happy that my Dukan Diet Book came in the mail yesterday. I finished reading up to the recipes so I’ll be trying out a lot of new recipes very soon.

My daughter has started the diet this week also. She has only a little weight to lose so her attack phase was only 3 days long not 6 like mine. She loved the Oat Bran cookies so perhaps I’ll post that recipe the way it is. Of course, she was feeling a little weak from her dieting at the time she ate them. It’s quite possible she would have raved about eating cardboard.

While looking for new recipes I ran across this tidbit. Listen to Dr. Dukan talk about his diet on the BBC. Here is the link: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p007vxdf

Well, I will be posting those recipes tomorrow. See you then!
