Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably can answer it..
I also make V8 and broth soup with cooked frozen veggies (that didn't sound right). I'll have it with lunch and/or dinner. At lunch I'll nuke, than chop up a light beef Oscar Meyer hot dog and put it in my soup. It's great on these burrrr days..
How does the oscar mayer hot dog fit in the program. How do you count it...
Janice: 2 Fat Free or 97% Fat Free hot dogs = 1 protein serving...
PamIf you eat hot dogs, what brand do you suggest?..
Oscar Meyer or Hebrew National..
NutriSystem makes no distinction between dairy and protein on the under 60 year old women's and men's program (they are interchangeable). The stats you need to meet are: no more than 100 calories per serving (but you can go up to 120 calories once a day for yogurt, per Mary Gregg, the NutriSystem dietitian), no more than 3g fat, no less than 7g protein..
1/3 cup edamame beans or 2 Tablespoons Roasted Edamame.
2 FF or 97% FF hot dogs.
Cottage cheese (1/4 cup regular or 1/2 cup FF).
Morningstar Farms products.
(Note: Mary Gregg does also state that if women are choosing soy milk or more protein options than dairy, women should also take a calcium supplement.).
This comes from the e-classes with Mary Gregg and e-mails from Mary Gregg and NutriSystem...
Sounds like a great idea Kristen! I often add chicken or beef broth, along with cooked veggies, (usually zucchini, onion, bell pepper, and tomato,) to my lunch entrees to make them more soup-like. But good thought making a soup with the V8!.
Welcome to Dukan Diet by the way! You're gonna love it here...
Am I the only one that thinks that the ff hot dogs have zero taste? I use them occassionally, but really can't tell that they are in whatever I've prepared...
I eat the FF morningstar veggie dogs...Only once in a great while, as there is so much sodium in em'...
Did you get the Hebrew National ones? They are tasty & spicey. I can't see anyone saying those don't have any taste!..
Mmm! Sounds good on these cold days. I made something very similar yesterday using a lunch entree (vegetable beef) I opened the tub and dumped it in a large tall sided soup bowl. Then added 1/2 a can of low sodium V8 juice (the individual can the size of soda pop). Then diced 2 celery ribs, a little bit of green and red bell pepper, and some spinach leaves chopped. Mixed it all together and heated it for 3 1/2 min. in the microwave.
Nice and warm to the tummy, and satisfying too. I'm going to try the same thing using the "Corn and Tomato Chowder" entre for lunch today. Baby it's COLD outside!.
My personal fav for FF dogs is Ball Park FF ... yummy!..
Another vote for the ball park. DH never thought he could do ff hot dogs, but he loves the ball park beef ff. Says he can't tell that they're "diet" dogs..
I "roast" the Hebrew National hotdogs in the oven. Place a square of aluminum foil on a baking sheet and spray it with Pam. Bake the hotdogs in a 350 degree oven until the skin begins to crisp. Cooking them this way really adds to the texture and they taste like they've been cooked on a grill instead of being watered down...
