Welcome to Kalyn's Kitchen

Welcome to my new blog of South Beach Diet friendly recipes. After a few months of sending recipe ideas to my friends by e-mail, I decided it would be nice to use a blog to post the recipes rather than sending an e-mail each time. 

Thanks to my great brother Rand (the creative genius in the family) for creating a great blog for our family and giving me the idea for this one.

The South Beach diet has been amazingly successful for me. I haven't followed the diet 100%, but I have tried to stick to the South Beach principles for most of my meals. However, if you're not a South Beach convert, the recipes you will find here will be great for any kind of diet that recommends decreasing carbs and increasing protein foods.

I think my diet is very healthy, and also quite varied. I love what I'm eating and know I can eat this way for the rest of my life. I say, if there are things you simply must eat once in a while (for me it's popcorn at the movies) then eat those things, but eliminate some other things you don't savor quite so much. It all balances out. And if you follow the diet, you will loose weight, especially around the waist. I promise.

I hope you like the recipes. Please leave me comments when you visit the blog, and if you want to send me some of your great recipes to share, send them to
