Review: Dukan Diet Chia Seeds, Organic Stevia, Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies, Hot & Spicy Turkey Jerky

I was recently given the chance to review a few products from Dukan Diet
I am sure you are wondering what is the Dukan Diet?

The Dukan Diet is a physician-formulated lifestyle weight-loss program consisting of 4 phases to reach and keep your TrueWeight for life.The diet discards counting calories, and instead emphasizes lean protein, plentiful amounts of water, daily walking and allows unrestricted amounts of 100 healthy foods. The Dukan Diet is designed to help its members overcome common pitfalls and achieve healthy, lifelong weight management.

Dukan Chia Seeds are tiny, nutritional dynamos. The seeds pack a powerful nutritional punch into a very small serving. In a single tablespoon, you get 4 grams of fiber, 2 grams of protein and 1.6 grams of Omega-3 fatty acids. Chia is often considered the richest plant-based source of dietary fiber, protein and Omega-3’s.

Health Benefits 
  • Good source of energy (Athletes have even reported that chia seeds provide a constant source of energy).  
  • Contains powerful antioxidants, fiber, calcium and other beneficial compounds.
  • Chia seeds also have the amazing ability to absorb as much as 12 times more water than their weight, creating a gel-like substance. This gel can help people feel full longer and even prevent spikes in blood sugar that often occur after eating.
  • Helps to encourage regularity, elimination and detoxification. 
  • Nature's richest vegetarian supply of omega-3 fatty acids . 
  • Helps to ease the pain and inflammation caused by arthritis, possibly because of its high content of omega-3s.
  • These same fats may offer even more benefits, as they appear to help boost metabolism and promote lean 

I love the chia seeds. I like to use them in my smoothies. So yummy!

Stevia is a South American plant native to Paraguay that has long been used to sweeten beverages including coffee and tea. Stevia is now grown and harvested in many areas of the world, from Central and South America to Asia, Europe and Africa. You can find this plant as an ingredient in many products including desserts, candy and soft drinks.

Benefits of using Dukan Diet Organic Stevia
  • 100% natural calorie-free sweetener that is 300 times sweeter than sugar.
  • No bitter aftertaste.
  • Keeps its taste in both hot and cold beverages.
  • Fights sugar cravings.
  • Great for diabetics – does not affect blood glucose or insulin response.
  • Inhibits the growth of some bacteria, including those that cause tooth decay and gum disease

I have tried stevia in the past but honestly did not like it. When I received Dukan Diet organic Stevia I was hesitant to try. I decided to blend it in my bulletproof coffee and it is so good!!

Dukan Diet Oat Bran Chocolate Chip Cookies are made with oat bran produced using Dr. Dukan's proprietary Milling and Sifting Index M2bisB6™. This index allows for a perfect size and purity of bran particles, which increases oat bran's absorptive qualities that help you feel full. These cookies also have the smooth, melt in your mouth addition of chocolate chips.

I honestly expected the cookies to taste like cardboard. I know that is bad to say right? I have tried a few diet snacks and they were horrible. Not with Dukan Diet oat bran chocolate chip cookies. They are so good. You would honestly not know that they are healthy for you.

Dukan Classic Thin Cut Hot & Spicy Turkey Jerky makes a wonderful protein rich snack. Premium cuts of turkey breast are marinated with a delicious tamari soy sauce, select spices and spicy red pepper. 
Dukan Classic Thin Cut Hot & Spicy Turkey Jerky:
  • Made from turkeys raised without antibiotics
  • USDA Inspected
  • 19 grams of protein
  • Less sodium than most brands of turkey jerky on the market
  • No added MSG
  • No added sugar
  • Gluten free
  • No nitrates
I am not a huge fan of turkey but when Dukan Diet was suggesting products they suggested this. I am so glad I gave in and tried it. Its so good. Its just the right amount of spice and heat. The jerky is very tender and not tough like other jerky's I have tried.
