South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-Up for November 2010 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipe for November 2001 was

I've been a little distracted for the last month.  That, combined with the fact that bloggers don't seem to cook as many Phase One dishes during November means that this round-up is a bit smaller than usual.  But there are still some recipes here that I know would really hit the spot if you were doing Phase One, so take a look and see what sounds good.  This round-up will get added to the archive list of monthly Phase One Recipes Round-Ups, a section of the recipe archives (over there on the left!) that I know people use over and over.  (You also can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.)

Every month I find recipes that only need small changes to make them South Beach Diet friendly, so it's noted after the link if the recipe needs any changes to be Phase One. Of course, there are always good Phase One recipes that I don't find, so if you're a food blogger who's posted something you think would be good for Phase One, see after the recipe links for how to submit it.

Did I Miss Your Phase One Recipe?
Phase one menus for the South Beach Diet focus on lean meats, seafood, eggs, dried beans, soy products, low-fat dairy products, nuts and seeds, and most vegetables. Phase one doesn't permit fruit, alcohol, bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, sugar, or any foods high in saturated fat. Obviously I miss lots of phase one recipes, so if you're a food blogger who posted a recipe this month that you think would be approved for phase one, please feel free to e-mail me the link at kalynskitchen (at) comcast (dot) net. I'll take a look, and if the recipe is phase-one friendly, I'll add it to next months roundup. (Please don't leave recipe links in the comments. They will not be published.
