Stabilisation: Dukan Thursday Meal Ideas
I’ve put this post together just for Sophie who told me that she was struggling with ideas for Dukan Thursdays. She said that her meal plans for these days have become very plain and that these days had become a chore for her. She asked me to put together some meal plans suggestions for her.
When you are following the first three phases of the Dukan Diet, building in variety to your meals almost becomes routine. However once you’ve moved on to Stabilisation and are able to eat normally 6 days a week, it is so easy to get out of the Dukan way of eating and fall into the habit of eating just one or two dishes every week on your Dukan Thursdays.
Dukan Thursday are a little bit more difficult than ordinary pure protein days in the other phases of the diet because some of the fattier meats and fishes are excluded as I explained in this post.
I’d suggest that to overcome this that you treat Dukan Thursday as a special occasion rather than a day just to get through. Celebrate your success on reaching your target weight and staying at your target weight each Thursday.
These meal ideas are of course also suitable for the Attack Phase and PP days of Cruise and I often suggest to people who have reached a plateau in their weight loss to switch to the more restrictive rules of Dukan Thursdays in order to get their weight moving again.
Dukan Galette or Oat Bran Pancake This could be savory and topped with a poached egg on top or cottage cheese or sweet served topped with yogurt and a few goji berries or with lemon using this recipe Mrsj2008′s Zesty Lemon Dukan Pancakes.
You could have a boiled egg served with chicken breast soldiers.
Another easy breakfast is of course oat bran porridge – this could be plain or flavored with cinnamon or vanilla.
You can of course have any of the main meals listed under evening meals below and any of these suggestions could of course be used for your evening meal instead.
Piri Piri Chicken – I suggest cooking this the evening before using chicken breast so that you can have it cold for lunch.
Turkey Burgers – This should also be cooked the evening before and could be cooked as a burger or meatballs.
Serve these with a yogurt dip seasoned with a little chili or curry and some raw onion rings
Make up a couple of omelettes made with egg whites to use as wraps in to which you put shredded chicken breast, low fat ham or cottage cheese and some sliced onion.
