Ha ha - ya - Stampede is a big deal over here -our downtown just about shuts down for those 10 days...most have heard of it but not everyone. That is awesome the Jets are coming back - Canada could use another hockey team!
Wow- ya- lol - I guess thats a bit of motivation for him to start. I think guys do well on Dukan because they love meat so much anyway.
Yes - i anticipate I'll be trying some deep fried jelly-beans this weekend when we head down. I've heard there's deep fried Kool-Aid now! Geeze - where does it end?!?
Glad to hear ur able to munch on the carrots instead of chocolate. Wish I had your will power - ha ha. I think next week i'm going to do 7 solid days of Protein next week to get back on track. It will be needed I think.
lol - the radio has just reported that there's 3000 people waiting in line for wrist bands to see the Royal couple! unreal!
Given that it's summer - ya - I'm grilling ALL the time..pretty much everyday. i'm usually doing burgers (homemade)...chicken breasts...fish (Basa fillets - so good!)...beef and pork tenderloin. It does get a bit old - but I've just found I try to season with different things each time. I came up with a Dukan friendly recipe for 'Teriyaki sauce'...and I've gone out and bought A LOT of different seasonings. But not going to lie - I do use my homemade BBQ sauce a fair bit too. I know he says no sauces..but honestly by the time its grilled - there's not a lot left on the meat. That way i'm not spraying the meat like crazy with PAM or Olive oil to prevent from sticking and i still get some flavor with it. My fave seasonings are Roasted Red pepper and Garlic...Parmesean and Herbs..and Montreal Steak Spice. Mrs.Dash has a lot of decent seasonings too and there's no added salt which makes us Dukaners happy!
Oh! And a lil tip for burgers...I'm not sure if you make your own or not - but if you do - instead of using pure ground beef - I actually mix half extra lean ground beef and half ground pork. It makes them extra juicy!!
I have heard of "the greatest show on earth" I'm about to marry a Canadian (he's from Winnipeg and couldn't be happier the jets are coming back)! I've had to brush up on my Canadian history and geography.
My FI actually is considering doing the Dukan diet as well, so I guess I have lost some weight! We went to go and try on a seer sucker suit for the wedding and his pant size was 3 sizes larger and needless to say he was NOT happy!
I hear you on the grease situation. I'm not a big greasy food kind of girl, but I can't help myself when it's state fair time. My BIGGEST weakness is deep fried snicker bars! But I spend the next 2 days paying for that. It's heavenly!
I know my body would never reject chocolate, we are like "peas and carrotts"! Speaking of which i'm having carrots right now!
Do you find that you grill more now that you are on this diet or do you have any good chicken recipes, I'm getting at a stale point with chicken. Right now I'm grilling burgers on a near nightly basis!
