Day 59      PP          Saturday               178                                   October 1, 2011

Daily Loss: Gain 2   lbs    Thanks Medication
Total Loss:        28.3 lbs
Wt. to go:          23.7 lbs

I think this medication absorbs every drop of calorie there is.  Well, the gain was aided and abetted by extra oat bran and more veggies than I usually eat.  I am just smack under the weather.  Need to start back with walking a little more. Another burp in the hiccup of dukaning it.  I wanted to post a recipe today to celebrate October 1.  I found this on dukan US Facebook.  Makes sense and looks good. See the note on bottom for muffins.

Jelly Roll Pumpkin Cake

For the cake:
6Tbs oat bran
1Tbs corn starch
1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 c sweetener/ 4Tbs Truvia
4 eggs, separated
4Tbs yogurt
1c pumpkin puree
1Tbs pumpkin pie spice
1tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 F
Mix together all dry ingredients well.
Add yogurt, yolks, pumpkin and vanilla, mixing well.
Beat egg whites to stiff peaks.
Fold whites into batter.
Bake on a parchment lined jelly roll sheet pan, about 15min, or until done.

2 8oz pkgs of FF cream cheese, room temp
2Tbs Truvia
Beat cream cheese and Truvia together till smooth.
Flavor as desired. I used 3T SF caramel syrup and 1t cinnamon. Next time I’ll try maple flavoring. Use whatever you like.

When cake is cool, spread cream cheese filling onto cake and roll up. Wrap well in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a couple hours.

Since this has 6Tbs of oat bran, you can eat 1/3 of the pumpkin roll for your 2Tbs daily allotment of oat bran.

I made the muffins and they were a hit! It made 12 large muffins. I added 1/2 cup FF sour ceam to the FF cream cheese, cinnamon, Stevia mixture (thinner) and turned it into frosting. I baked it at 350 for 15 mins and they were a perfect texture ( I am at 5000 ft evelevation). No one even asked it they were “diet”. I am going to use it at Thanksgiving too!! Thanx Liz!!

Thanks Liz and Suzie!!

I have not tried this because I used all my pumpkin on two recipe that were complete failures.  This one got good reviews.  I would not use the frosting because of reports of weight gain problem with using too much NF cream cheese.

On Facebook US Dukan Diet Pages, Face book is taking down the discussion pages on October 31, 2011.  There are a number so good recipes there so copy them now.  Hopefully other recipes will have another page since anything on the wall is hard to retrieve and difficult to copy.

Still looking for PP faves.

Let me know what you think of the pumpkin recipe.
