So in order to drop a few pounds and synchronize with my husbands eating habits I’m going more meat and fat-free dairy than sugar and carbs for a while. That being said, there may be fewer posts since I’ll be doing a lot more grilling than “real” cooking. I could post a whole lot of pictures of different forms of protein on our grill I guess….but that sounds not that interesting.
Moving on! Fat-free dairy products aren’t restricted on our diet, but sugar is a no-no for a while. I just can’t eat cottage cheese plain though, it just isn’t tolerable for me. So this morning I added in some spices and poof! I had dessert for breakfast! Have you ever eaten Arroz con Leche? This yummy yummy Spanish dessert made with rice, milk, egg-yolks, butter, a ton of sugar and some spices is one of our favorites but oh so fattening. However, sprinkling in 1/8th – 1/4th a teaspoon of ground nutmeg, about the same of cinnamon and a packet of Splenda into a serving of fat-free cottage cheese made my breakfast so good I almost had another. Of course, it isn’t the same as Arroz con Leche but the flavor and texture was so close I easily could imagine having that as a dessert. Now I know it is likely that I’m not the first to come up with this idea but either way, it’s fantastic and 100% on all phases of the Dukan diet – can’t beat that!
