Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some research and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could give you help..
I'd say it works pretty well I deal in "food exchanges" more than nutritional stats and when I do a breakdown along those lines, it seems to work.
I see the protein component of a dinner entree (4 oz chicken) +1 fat serving (1 tbsp crushed peanuts ~ 55 cal) + free foods (chili sauce & cooking spray).
The Shiritaki noodles are about 40 cal per pkg, with 6 gr carb & 2 gr protein, and the Pad Thai Sauce is 70 cal per 2 tbsp with 14 gr carb & 1 gr protein, so the combo of sauce & noodles while a bit high would work as the carb component of the dinner replacement....
(1 Low-GI Carb Serving = 15 g. carbohydrates, 3 g. protein, trace of fat, 80 calories).
Add your veggies & salad and it looks like it would work....
That really looks yummy!!! I hadn't thought about using the Shirataki noodles for a Pad Thai... PamSB posted a fabulous dressing idea that I am addicted to, and it would work with this as well, for fewer calories. She uses Walden Farms Coleslaw dressing, PB2 and curry powder, and she recommended putting it on broccoli slaw. Well, I had the dressing ingredients, but my Trader Joe's was out of broccoli slaw, so I bought some broccoli & cauliflower flowerettes. I stir-fried them with some mushrooms and then added some chicken. I made the dressing and mixed it into the cooked veggies & chicken, and it was FABULOUS!!! I used 2 tbsp WF Coleslaw dressing, 1 tsp PB2 and probably 1/4 tsp curry powder.
But I definitely will use the noodles next time! Thanks for posting this!!!..
I would use shrimp, I love shrimp pad thai!.
You could also use 1/2 the TB of the peanuts, and use 1/2 tsp of sesame oil to do the saute...mmm...
That's exactly what popped into my head, too!!! Shrimp.. mmmmmmm..
I had pad thai for teh first time on Sunday and it was YUMMO!!! Thanks for the Dukan Diet version!!! So where does one find shirtaki noodles. hmmmmm?!?!?..
I found mine at a health food store. They are in the refrigerated section (packaged in water) maybe near tofu...
