Question I have... Why is my acne flaring on a vegetarian Dukan Diet? Thanks in advance for any answer or 2. Another quick question... What spices and herbs do you add to some of the meals to change the flavors?.

I read about tarragon in the chicken and dumplings and loved it!.

Any other suggestions?.

How about curry powder - any suggestions?.

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an anything. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably could give you help..

I add garlic and hot peppereither dried chipotle flakes or ground. I also squeeze in some fresh lemon to a lot of the tomato based sauces..

Basil and oregano are good, too. Hot sauce is also nice..

I sometimes put curry powder in the Stroganoff and Risotto...

I am curry queen! Saute garlic, ginger, onions, add fettucine or pasta primavera, some cauliflower and curry - yum. Can you get thai mix at your grocery store? That and a spoonful of peanut butter added to noodles along with tofu is a passable pad thai..

Instead of drowning salad in dressing, chop cucumber, tomato, a bit of feta and drizzle with vinegar(balsamic is best but use what you have) and add oregano - you won't miss the fatty dressing.I'm always adding cinnamon, ginger - gingerbread spices I guess to oatmeal and pancake mix..

I also add paprika to eggs.

The bean lunches, chili, and fajita taste fresher with a squeeze of lime and a handful of fresh coriander..

Experiment - take a spoonful of the dish and see if you like the seasoning before adding it to he whole serving if you're doubtful...

Adding 1 tsp Kraft dayglo orange cheese topping powder can improve some of the dried pasta with cheese dishes too. Only 13 or so calories, but does add some salt too...
