Sorry I have been away trying to catch by breath. The scale is yo-yo tripping and will for the next two weeks. I read the chapter about menopause since my med is a hormone and figured that would help me. I am staying on the program and not changing it. It will work out in time.
I have been trying to figure out what are my favorites for PP days. I like to have in the frig jello made with NF Greek yogurt. I tried cooking microwave turkey bacon till crisp and dry and they were a good snack to carry along for a shopping trip or extra with meal.
My favorite meat is pork tenderloin (unflavored) that I get at a good price at Costco. I cut it up and freeze it. So easy and tasty. (I brown it then add a shallot or some onion, simmer in ginger ale or cherry flavoring in water. I make a double batch because it is so good cold to snack on the next day. )
My all time favorite pp supper is French toast (see September 3,2011) made with Sunshine souffle (see August 13th) with Canadian bacon and NS caramel syrup. One souffle makes enough for 4 meals of french toast. Oat bran cookies are wonderful but I have gotten in the habit of having them in the morning.
I am defrosting chicken tenders to make Tandoori Chicken. The tenders will marinate quickly and Sunbrand has a powder that you add to yogurt, lemon juice (and more yogurt to skip the oil). Then cook under the broil. Sounds good with a side of microwaved bacon. I like Sun Brand. No coloring in this either. Serve with fresh lemon. Edited to give results. Too too spicy. I will go back to my recipe of marinating in lemon, mustard, and yogurt.
Since we must eat our two tablespoons of oat bran a day and everyone loves Galettes, here is a new one. I copied this from Vicki C’s website. I think we could make them with 1 tablspoon of Oat bran and have them with meals. Prefect pure protein heaven. http://dukanblogging.blogspot.com/2011/08/day-77-cruise-chocolate-hazelnut.html The added notes are from Vicki.
Here’s the recipe:1 egg white (I used Egg Beaters)
2 Tbsp oat bran
2 Tbsp fat-free, low-carb vanilla yogurt
2 tsp sweetener (I used Splenda)
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa powder
Torani sugar-free hazelnut syrup (to taste)
1) In a small bowl, beat egg. Add remaining ingredients, then mix.
2) Pour mixture into a heated nonstick pan (medium heat), and cook for 5 minutes. Flip the galette and cook for another 5 minutes.
Perhaps I had the heat on too high, but my galette actually cooked in 5 minutes total (i.e., 2.5 minutes — rather than 5 minutes — per side). Overall, I thought it tasted great — the galette was light, fluffy, and full of hazelnut goodness. Next time I might add a little more cocoa powder, but still thought it was awesome.
I’ve heard that the galettes freeze well, so if I’m not too lazy, I might make some in bulk, freeze them, and enjoy the fruits of my labor for days to come… 🙂
Oh I can not forget Vicki’s choclate eggs with NS chocolate syrup. Pure Protein Delight. See September 19th.
Please share and tell me about your Pure protein Favorites. Some mornings I groan at opening up that frig, every other day to be exact.
