Sandra Leesmith here with a recipe I obtained from the most recent diet I tried and the first one to actually work FOR ME. Notice I said FOR ME, because everyone has different body types so I don’t think all diets work for everyone. Anyway that has been my experience. I’ve tried all the famous and not so famous diets and this one finally worked.
It is called the Dukan Diet and is used a lot in Europe. It is basically a high protein diet. If you want to check it out, you can get a used book on Amazon.
While eating high protein, they recommend eating two tablespoons of oat bran every day. One of my favorite ways to do this is to make what Dr. Dukan calls French galettes.
They are easy to make and you can make a bunch ahead of time as they last several days in the refrigerator.
1 egg (beaten)
2 tablespoons oat bran
1 1/2 tablespoons fat free cottage cheese
Here’s how I make them:
Mix ingredients and pour three small globs onto a griddle to make three galettes.
Because I want to be sure I get the two tablespoons of oat bran, I just make one recipe at a time. When I cook the galettes, I divide the bunch to make three small pancakes just because they are easier to flip than one big one.
I eat mine with ground meat and salsa on top. Hubby eats his with stevia and cinnamon. You can be creative and eat them with any number of toppings.
