|These Egg "Muffins" are one of my very favorite Phase One breakfasts.|
I can tell by how the number of people looking at the Index of South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes that a lot of you out there are doing Phase One right now. I'm posting only Phase One recipes during January, just like I've done for the last five years, and I thought I'd spotlight some of my favorite Phase One Recipes during the month too. First up, I'm sharing five of my favorite Phase One breakfasts. My breakfast habits have changed a bit since I've been working at home, but pictured above are the Egg Muffins that were my favorite "grab and go" breakfast to eat in the car on the way to work when I was still teaching school. There are endless varieties of this recipe, and they're all good!
Asparagus and Fresh Mozzarella Frittata with Parmesan and Chives, definitely one of my favorites. If asparagus isn't in the budget when it's out of season, use some other vegetable.
Egg casseroles are baked egg dishes, and you can make a large size of this and you'll have enough to microwave in the morning before work for a whole week. I have a few favorite egg casseroles, and one of them is this Roasted Green Bell Pepper and Roasted Tomato Breakfast Casserole with Feta and Oregano.
These Tuscan Baked Eggs with Tomatoes, Red Onion, Garlic, Parmesan, and Herbs is a special breakfast I'd make on the weekend or when I had guests staying at my house. I promise no one will think of this as "diet food."
Finally, one more variation of breakfast casserole that I just adore is this Breakfast Casserole with Spinach, Leeks, Cottage Cheese, and Goat Cheese. Having an amazing breakfast like this to start the morning really gets a phase one day off to a good start.
Of course, there are a lot of simpler things you can eat for breakfast on Phase One. Check the South Beach Diet Phase One Breakfast Recipes for more ideas. And if you have a great idea for a Phase One breakfast, let us know about it in the comments!
