Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an good answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably can answer it..
Check out this thread for Christina Gray's pancake sub mix:.
I hope you can find these ingredients, because this is great!!!.
Edit: Check out this thread as well, farther down (around post #7 on) for Christina's other recommendations:.
Can't really help a lot with what brands work suggest you check the stats on what's available at your store and see how close they come.
Can you find Hodgson Mill products locally??? their pancake mix (1/3 cup dry) has similar calories even though less protein than Dukan Diet see if their web site has a store finder.
Maple Grove also makes a mix that a number of people use not sure if you can find it - but it would be worth looking/asking.
Generally, a store bought mix may not have as much protein as the Dukan Diet mix, but you can deal with that by selecting egg substitute for your dairy/protein - 1/4 cup is the recipe equivalent of 1 egg, but the Dukan Diet serving size is 1/2 cup (because of the very low calories) and has 12 grams of protein (quite a bit more than the standardized 7-8 grams per dairy/protein serving) which will compensate for the lower protein in your pancake mix.
Something else you can do is make your own christinagray has several recipes for pancakes and/or baking mixes that work very well the most difficult part for me was finding dry buttermilk for her baking mix easily at local stores (ended up getting Bob's Red Mill online) but her pancake mixes don't all require it....
Christinagray2003's web site @.
Or just use the regular Bisquick and shrug your shoulders, there isn't all that much difference (just a bit more fat & calories) and then not everyday....
As to SF syrups do your stores sell Smuckers products??? theirs is quite good and works well as a free food (20 cal per 1/4 cup - more than enough)....
Fiber one pancakes are really good. Not quite as much fiber and protein but those could be added by using Poly D and AnyWhey if you can get those..
I have made this one of Chris' many times.
NS Pancake Mix Substitution (single serving).
4 tsp wheat gluten.
2 bsp Biscuit mix.
1/4 tsp baking soda.
1 tbsp oat flour (finely ground up oatmeal) or whole wheat flour.
2 tsp splenda.
Mix together and store in a baggie. Makes 1 serving. (I will make up a few batches at one time to have them on hand).
About 130 cals.
I live in Ontario and order my food from the US. I started my auto ship just before the deadline so I get pancake mix all the time. I could order some for you ala cart if you want. PM me and let me know. If you live close the shipping might not be too bad. I haven't found anything in our stores here that can match the mix for protein but the No Name brand from Loblaws isn't bad if you make it this way.
But I never put butter in anyway. You could always spritz in some Becel Butter spray if you like..
1/4 cup No Name pancake mix (100 cals, 3g protein).
1/4 cup 1%milk (27.3 cals, 2g protein).
2 Tbsp Eggbeaters (15 cals, 3.5g protein).
No Name - Total stats 142.3 calories, aprox 1g of fat, 8.5g protein..
NS mix - 120 calories, .5 g fat, 8g protein..
Hope this helps...
Ohh almost forgot some new finds I bought today at the Real Canadian Super Store.
LilyDale Daystarters (found with the regular bacon and turkey bacon).
Per slice 25 cals, 1g fat, 5g protein ( so you can have 3 slices yeah!!!).
North of 90 Mild Chicken Sausage ( found with sausages in the meat dept.).
Per sausage 150 cals, 10g fat, 17g protein..
These are the big ones so you would only eat half. I know they are still high in fat to could for a protein serving but unfortunately we don't have alot of the same options as they do south of boarder..
Just thought, you could also take the meat out of the casing and make 3 patties out of it for breakfast sandwiches. Then the stats wouldn't be so bad..
1 pattie from sausage = 50 cals, 3.3g fat, 5.5 protein...
Fyi the Dukan Diet pancake mix stats that you quote at 120 calories is for just the mix itself and does NOT include the 30 or so calories (and 3 gr protein) for the 1/3 cup milk that is used to make it..
Great catch Lynn. Thought I was forgeting something. It is really hard for us here in Canada to look at all these great recipes and items that people use to add to the program when we can't get them here..
So the stats should read more like this?.
No Name - Total stats = 142.3 calories, aprox 1g of fat, 8.5g protein..
NS mix - Total stats =150 calories, 1g fat, 11g protein...
Yep and it does look like you've found a viable alternative..
I keep bugging my local GNC health and supliment store to get some AnyWhey baking protein powder in stock. The shipping when ordering online is horrible not to mention the exchange rate is not favorable to us at all right now. lol Thats the only reason I haven't bought any yet...
Does amazon.com ship to canada?? can you get their free shipping on items over $25??? if so, they sell anywhey....
I just thought I would mention that I buy soy protein at the Bulk Barn and add a tblsp to the compliments pancake mix from Wal-mart if I am in a pinch. I do make up Christina's pancake mix most of the time. The wheat gluten is cheaper at Food Basics. It is $6.99 and lasts a long time. The other ingredients can be had a the bullk barn. I also make my own lower calorie baking mix with whole wheat flour.
Here is the recipe:.
Reduced-Fat Biscuit Mix.
6 cups all-purpose flour.
1 tablespoon sea salt.
2-1/2 tablespoons baking powder.
1/3 or 1/2 cup transfat-free shortening, see note below.
Begin by getting out a very large bowl. Measure the flour into the bowl. Add the salt and baking powder. Stir the dry ingredients together so that the salt and baking powder are evenly distributed throughout the flour. Measure in the shortening. Use a standard 1/3 or 1/2-cup measure and pack it all the way full with shortening.
Now scrape the fat into the bowl of flour. Your fingers will get greasy. That's alright, you can wash them in a few minutes. Using your hands, mash the shortening into the flour. Continue mixing and mashing until the mixture has a consistency similar to store-bought biscuit mix.
This recipe makes 7 cups of mix. Each serving is 1/3-cup..
NOTE: This biscuit mix can be made with either 1/3-cup or 1/2-cup of shortening. When made with 1/3-cup shortening it's nutritional information is almost identical to Reduced-Fat Bisquick. The quality of the mix made with 1/3-cup shortening is not quite as good as when it is made with 1/2-cup shortening. It is still very good though, and I heartily recommend it to anyone watching both their budget and waistline. Average consumers don't have access to the same fat replacers and other chemicals that food manufacturers do. For this reason the lower fat version of this recipe gives slightly different results than Reduced-Fat Bisquick.
It is an extremely close copy though, and most people won't notice any difference in their cooking results..
For those willing to add a few more calories to their biscuit mix, the version using 1/2-cup of shortening gives superior results. The biscuits made with this variation are much better those made with the name brand mix. The final decision is yours. When preparing the recipes on this website I have used the version made with 1/3-cup of shortening. My reasoning is that folks who are unwilling to make their own biscuit mix can buy Reduced-Fat Bisquick at the store, prepare the recipes they find here and not worry about getting their hands dirty. The nutritional data for the recipes prepared with either Reduced-Fat Bisquick or homemade baking mix prepared with 1/3-cup shortening is the same.
Each serving is 1/3-cup..
Per Serving using 1/3-cup shortening: 144 Calories; 3g Fat (20.2% calories from fat); 3g Protein; 26g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 479mg Sodium..
Exchanges: 1-1/2 Grain(Starch); 1/2 Fat..
Per Serving using 1/2-cup shortening: 158 Calories; 5g Fat (27.5% calories from fat); 3g Protein; 26g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 0mg Cholesterol; 479mg Sodium.
I use the 1/3 cup shortening and it is wonderful. When using it you can take out one tablespoon and replace it with the soy protein to up the protein in it..
Has some great products. ie sugarfree pie filling, pancake mix, davinci syrups etc. There is free delivery if you spend over $100.00 online or you can go into the store. It is in Markham..
Hope this helps!..
I wound up getting some Dukan Diet pancake mix on Ebay but not the cheapest solution. Glad to hear the Loblaws stuff is pretty close since I have some in my cupboard..
I am sad that we don't have this marvelous PB2 stuff everyone raves about...unless I am wrong and someone has seen it in Canada...
Thanks everyone for the suggestions..
I think I"ll go with Cynthia's and get the No Name brand, just because at this point I'd like to keep things as simple as possible..
As for the syrup and sausage, guess I"ll just have to do some detective work in the stores myself...
Hi will-lose. Again thelowcarbgrocery.com (in Markham, Ontario) carries the pb2 and do ship. There site is a must view for Canadians wanting some great products that our regular stores do not carry...
Syrup I use is E.D.Smith No Sugar Added Maple Syrup. Right next to the others in Loblaws or Super Store. 3 Tbsp is 30 cals..
Here are the sausages that I found..
Again the stats are 150 cals, 10g fat, 17g protein. If you take one and remove the casing to form 3 "patties" you could use that as a protein serving and have enought for 3 days. They are REALLY big sausages..
Stats per "Pattie"-50 cals, 3.3g fat, 5.7g protein. The use Egg beaters for the McGriddle sandwich, with eggbeaters and a slice of FF processed cheese your good to go...
Wow Cynthia, you are doing all my homework for me! I feel so lazy, lol..
As for the eggbeaters and cheese on my McGriddle, naaaaaaaaaaa. I always ordered mine with just sausage, because I don't like having a syrupy sweet taste on my eggs and cheese..
Spankies-gang, thanks for the site for the pb2! That store is only a two hour drive and we go that way every now and again, so I can either order or buy direct...
Just curious - why can't Canadian customers get the pancake mix?..
There are several tems we don't get. Something about the products aren't passable by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. An ingredient, labelling, who knows...
Thanks Spankies! I can't wait to check that out. Uhm and that is scary if the food is not passing our food standards...yikes!..
Perhaps some of the companies that put the food together for NS(if that's how it works), don't want to go to the extra trouble in making bilingual packaging for us Canadians..
Could be as simple as that and not really be about food standards..
But yah, the thought of it having something to do with the food itself makes you go hmmmmmm!..
Oh, it really does... *eyes pancake mix warily*.
That is odd, and it's a shame! I don't know if I could live without it - I make so many things out of it...
Does anyone know if the nutritional info for the pancake mix is posted somewhere already, and if not would one care to relay that info. to me, I have a baking mix leftover from hubby's Atkins days and want to compare the two. Much appreciated!..
Can Canadians order from.
They have the Maple Grove and Any Whey and so many other Dukan Diet friendly products...
