Since coming off of the Dukan Diet proper, Steve and I observe a ‘Protein Day’ once a week, normally on a weekday. This apparently keeps our set point in check and, believe me, it’s no great hardship to spend a day devoted to protein. The other thing we’re ‘supposed’ to do, in perpetuity, is have 3 tablespoons of oat bran a day. (I believe that Dukan has shares in the stuff). We haven’t stuck to this on a daily basis, but I have oat bran on our Protein Day.
This morning I made a Dukan version of my favourite childhood hot cereal, Chocolate Malt-O-Meal. I mix together 3 tablespoons of oat bran, a teaspoon each of Stevia and Cabury’s Bourneville Cocoa Powder and ¾ cup of skimmed milk.
And cook it over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Yummy and a nice start to the day, especially in wintertime.
Alternatively, I have the oat bran mixed into non-fat yoghurt.
Lunch was leftover grilled chicken breast cut into chunks. I can graze at my job, so it’s very handy to have close to hand (and mouth). Sometimes I have ham and/or beef jerky.
Tonight’s dinner was a beautifully marbled piece of rump steak,
grilled, with some onions cooked in beef stock.
Our weekly Protein Day is a moveable feast. Tomorrow is Spinning Wednesday (I go to a spinning class at the gym, so need my carbs) and Thursday is Cupcake Thursday (more on that later!) so this week, Protein Tuesday it is.
