On October 23, 2011, this blog talked about diet soda and the rules (you can drink diet soda) and recommendations (limit diet soda to one a day). I was a bit floored since I was under the impression that Dr Dukan said was an advocate of diet soda. Remember I went out to and bought a case of diet soda. (I rarely drink soda.)
I went back to reread the section where he talks about diet soda, (page 34 in The Dukan Diet USA version). Basically he states diet sodas are great “allies” when no more than one calorie per glass. He discusses diet sodas in three paragraphs. He never gives any indications we should limit diet sodas, I suggest you read the October 23 entry of this blog and Dr Dukan’s writings on diet soda so you can decide for yourself.
Looking for different tastes on pure protein day? My sister raves on about her fish cooked in ginger sauce. I finally tried it and yes it is very good. Now I can eat frozen fish. The dish can be adapted to a fry pan.
Sis’s Ginger Fish
1 fillet of fish like tilapia
1/3 cup Diet gingerale
Freshly finely grated ginger to taste (I use ½ to 1 teaspoon)
Soy sauce small dash
Black pepper to taste
Set oven 350/185. Grate ginger into gingerale and allow to sit for 15 minutes or so. Place fish in baking dish that will allow the fish to be almost covering the fish somewhat. Drain gingerale mixture, discarding the grated ginger. Add soy sauce to gingerale and pour over fish. Add black pepper to taste. Bake until fish is cooked, using the 12 to 15 minutes per inch rule. Yes, it is Pure Protein recipe.
