South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-Up from June 2008 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

salmon-salad-with-dill-kalynskitchen

Kalyn's favorite phase one recipe for June was this
Leftover Salmon Salad with Yogurt and Dill.

June has ended, and I was surprised to see how many wonderful South Beach Diet phase one recipes I've discovered for this month's round-up, because actually I've been distracted from reading my favorite blogs lately. Of course, the round-up includes phase one recipes I've posted on Kalyn's Kitchen during the month too. I know phase one is the hardest part of the diet for many people, but this abundance of tasty recipes shows how many delicious foods you can eat on phase one. I'm also including a few recipes where minor changes will make it okay for phase one, with changes noted.

You can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.  But whether or not you're following the South Beach Diet, you'll find some really great recipes here. Now, let's take a look at what people have been cooking.

  4. This is such a great listing, Kalyn! I'm not on a South Beach diet, but I do try to eat healthy and good food. As I don't read all the foodblogs on your blogroll, it's great to have such a handy list of recipes compiled with someone with good taste and knowledge like you!
    PS That is very kind of you to include TWO nami-nami recipes :)

  5. sh - Glad you like it.

    Karina, Look forward to hearing how you're doing on the diet.

    Tanna, isn't that a kick. I did love this salmon recipe. I've loved my dill so much that now I have to wait for more dill leaves to sprout out before I can make things with dill!

    Pille, it must be proof that you're eating healthy if I found two recipes on your blog that were good for phase one, don't you think!

  8. Kalyn, I had seen this salmon recipe before and filed it away in the brain for "someday." Well tonight our deep freezer went out. I mean it REALLY went out, and with temps over 100 we had a problem. I had a lot of salmon in there and it all thawed, and so I spent the evening baking all this gorgeous wild salmon and wondering what the heck I am going to do with it all tomorrow. Now I know. Thanks!

    (uh, now about that 20 pounds of ground turkey...)

  9. Lyn, what a dilemma. I don't know what I'd do if my freezer ever quit working. Glad you could use some of the salmon for salmon salad.

  10. What a great resource! (And I love this salmon recipe.) I just started South Beach, and am on week two. I lost 6 pounds the first week, yay! I'm psyched. After years of trying many things, this is literally a prayer answered. I'm FULL and not craving! And I am looking forward to pillaging your blog for many ideas! Thanks so much!

  11. Hi Kalyn,

    Really enjoying your site! The link for South Beach friendly moussaka doesn't work...says account suspended. Do you have this recipe elsewhere? Is it similar to the one in the SBD Supercharged book? Thanks!

  12. Amber, I don't know anything about the recipe and it looks like that blog is shut down so I think I will just remove the link.
