Cheese

Standard

Prior to starting Dukan, I was a cheese on cheese girl. Any type you can suggest, I would already have loved it or be willing to give it a go. Let me just say, I miss cheese.

Today I tried a new cheese (only half a slice) to mix in with my scrambled eggs at lunch, and I must say it was absolutely yummy!! Kraft Singles Free.

As with other cheese, it has to be a tolerated food, although this cheese has hardly any fat, it does have carbs (sugar), but only slightly more than the flavoured cottage cheeses I have been eating.

The Nutritional Information:

Energy 136 kJ per slice / 665 per 100g

Protein 5g per slice / 24g per 100g

Fat – Total <1g per slice / 2.2g per 100g

Carbohydrate 2.0g per slice / 10.1g per 100g

Considering I only ate half a slice, I think that’s a pretty nice treat!!

  1. Cheeeeeese… Mmmmm. I’ve discovered something horribly sinful. Microwaved cheese crisps. A fellow (non-dukan) low carber introduced me to them, definitely a treat more than a regular thing.

    You get a slice of cheese, put it on a ceramic dinner plate, and microwave it on high for about two minutes, or until it’s starting to go a little brown around the edges. Then whip out the plate (it’s hot!!) and with a knife, separate the cheese from the plate. Put it on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil, and let it cool.

    When it cools it goes crispy and incredibly yummy. I can’t even begin to describe it. OK, so it’s very much an (almost in)tolerated food, but very high in protein and low in carbs. A lot of the fat stays on the plate after you’ve separated it.

    I don’t even want to think about what sort of carcinogens are created in the process, but as a once in a while carb-free treat to put some “crunch” in your life, this takes the biscuit.
