Dukan Diet Love Those Chocolate Cookies

RECIPE POSTED SEPTEMBER 05, 2011

Day 54   PV          Wt 175                    September 24, 2011

Daily Loss:   0.7  lbs.
Total Loss:  31.3  lbs.
Wt. to go:    20.7  lbs

Yesterday I was interrupted while posting and did not get back to finish it.  I had an invite by a friend  to a coffee and apple pie get together to say thank you to volunteers.  Her husband passed away last week so I could not say no.

I made the bran cookies to take them with me and serve them as an extra item (Lagniappe (lan’ yap) New Orleans language).

Everyone  said they liked them.

True some people were polite.  (“I would not like to eat them everyday.”)

The cinnamon cookies and chocolate cookies were made about the diameter of a quarter.   And yes,  I ate two cookies  and drank one quart of ice water.  It worked out great.   I had given my self permission to eat extra bran since two cookies  equaled  one scant teaspoon of oat bran .  I was hungry and since I am battling this lung infection I had to eat.

I do not get invited to functions or to people’s houses to eat.    Sis warned me that when you used napkins to blot sauce or oil off of food,  it gets ugly fast.  So ugly it takes everyone’s appetite away.   Yours included.

Tough gig having to eat out as part your career.

Pina Colada Dukan Style

1 cup of fat-free milk

scant 1/4 cup fat-free powered milk

1-2 tablespoons of fat-free unflavored Greek yogurt

1/2 splenda packet or to taste

1 -2 tablespoons Pineapple  syrup flavoring sugar free  (I use DaVinci )

1-2 tablespoons Coconut  syrup flavoring sugar free  (I use Torani)

1-2 teaspoon Vanilla syrup flavoring sugar free

Combine in a blender.  The mixture needs to taste concentrated.   Add as much ice as possible until thick and close to ice cream.  Must eat very, very cold and icy to burn those extra calories.
