  1. Today my recipe is Dukan Pumpkin Bread, see other post.

    And last night I also made the Vanilla Moist Cake Muffins but added 1 1/2 tbsp of Cocoa Powder for a chocolate version. Can’t wait to try them 🙂

  2. Its still Sunday here…..

    And I have just come back from a friends ‘Special’ Birthday tea with…

    Marks and Spencer sandwiches,mine bagels cream cheese & salmon,kettle crisps,scones with cream & jam,Chocolate Birthday Cake & Champagne (lots) ..

    Needless to say I went planning only to have one glass,one sandwich & no crisps….

    However I had more !

    Bank Holiday Monday in UK tomorrow …

    Birthday Lunch – I will have fish starter, Steak & salad,no sweet.. but some wine…

    Tuesday – Attack

    What I like about this regime is that I KNOW that I will get back on track & no regrets about going slightly off the wagon !

    Have a good Monday & tomorrow I will be making Turkey meal balls too !

    • So so true Mitzi! I’m glad you really enjoyed yourself at your friends birthday 🙂 we still have to live while we are on the diet, and I think that if you do go off track and it’s for really good food then it’s worth it. You don’t really hear of people straying from the diet for really cheap and nasty food (although there has been mcdonalds a couple of times and that should fall in that category!)

  3. I’m in a bit of a cooking frenzy this morning (or should that be marinating frenzy?).

    Today’s menu includes Lemon Thyme Chicken (will post a recipe if it works out well!) and some yoghurt paprika chicken and also going to make the failsafe baked turkey meatballs.

    Lunch is ginger pork balls (heartsmart pork) with a broth.

      • I’ve yet to perfect it…I steamed the pork balls to get rid of excess fat but it’s a bit hard…the Ginger and oyster sauce broth was yummy though! I’ll definitely share when i’m happier with the result!

  4. Lauren – I am so sorry about entry number 5 to the Menu Monday! All I can say is that I am absolutely clueless and I have no idea how to remove that entry. No 6 is the correct one. Sorry – ignorant blogger here.
    Bye

  5. Hello, just started the attack phase this week and am on my fifth day. Can’t wait to get into some vegetables next week and I really love cooking, particularly greek/italian food (which I am missing badly at the moment), so I have come up with these dukan style moussaka stacks. I haven’t tried them yet but thought I would post it here for others (who can already have veggies) to try as well!

    Moussaka stacks

    INGREDIENTS

    1 onion, finely chopped
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    500g beef mince
    1 cup (250g) tomato passata
    1 tablespoon oregano
    cooking oil spray
    1 medium eggplant, cut lengthways into 8 x 1cm slices
    1 large zucchini, sliced lengthways
    Light Babybel (50g) grated

    METHOD

    Spray oil on pan and wipe away, cook onion and garlic for 3 minutes, until soft. Add mince and cook for 5 minutes, stirring, until no longer pink (you may need to add a little water if it sticks). Stir in passata and oregano. Reduce heat, simmer for 10 minutes.

    Meanwhile, spray a chargrill with oil spray and wipe away, and heat on high. Cook eggplant and zucchini slices for 3 minutes each side, until tender.

    Preheat grill. Place a slice of eggplant on baking tray. Top with about 2 tablespoons mince, cover with zucchini, another 2 tablespoons mince and an eggplant slice. Repeat with remaining ingredients, should make about four stacks – depending on size of eggplant. Top each with babybel. Grill for 2 minutes, until cheese melts. Scatter with oregano, parsley or basil leaves, serve.

    Nice with a fresh salad with cherry tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
