Celebration crepes

June 6th, 2011 § 7 comments

As you may recall, in March I began the Dukan diet with two friends.

Things started out very well: I kept myself to the strict protein, vegetable and (lots) of water diet.  I changed my eating habits, cut my sugar, carb and fat cravings, and lost 15 pounds in one month.

Then – as it so often does – life got in the way.  Do to a number of events, I spent more time out of our house, away from my healthy stocked fridge and lost the strictness that had brought on such success in the beginning .  But amazingly, while I added fat and sugar back into my diet, my appetite stayed in check and I didn’t gain back any of the weight that I had lost.

A few weeks ago I decided to get my act together once again, and refocus my engery on a strict meal plan.

I have told you this (long) story in order to share some news: I have now lost 25 pounds in less than three months.  Hence, the celebration crepes –

These crepes may look – and taste – incredibly decadent, but the truth is they are Dukan crepes that are filled with nonfat, sugar-free ice cream and low calorie jam.  My friend Pilar (who has also braved the Dukan diet with me) and I shared these during brunch this Friday, and “ooohed” and “ahhhed” over every single bite.

So from me to you, here’s my promise: you have more strength than you know, and you can use it to achieve your goals. Okay!?!  Now enough sentiment – here’s a recipe for your enjoyment:

Dukan crepes

Makes approx. 6 large crepes

  • 2 eggs
  • 160 grams skimmed milk powder
  • 100 ml sparkling water

Whip the eggs together and add skimmed milk powder slowly.  Fully incorporate the ingredients into a thick batter, and then slowly add sparkling water until the batter is smooth and thin enough to pour easily.  Pour batter to cover the bottom of a hot non-stick pan (if necessary, oil the pan very lightly with an oiled paper towel) – and cook until top is set and bottom is golden brown.  Flip crepe carefully and cook until both sides are golden.  Warm in a 100 degrees Celsius oven until all crepes are finished cooking.

Serve immediately with desired toppings – we enjoyed ham slices with nonfat cream cheese as a savory treat.

Bon appetite, you skinny thing you!! xx
