South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-Up for October 2011 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipe from October 2001 was definitely Kale and Romaine Caesar Salad!

I'm not quite sure how it happened, but it's November!  I don't know if people think about Phase One Recipes once the winter holidays are approaching, but my theory is that if you're trying to lose weight or maintain your weight it never hurts to rotate a generous selection of Phase One Recipes into your meals all year round, and I spotted a few interesting ideas fin this monthly round-up of Phase One Recipes that I'm sure will be on my menu soon.  Other than that, most people are probably in countdown mode for Thanksgiving for the next few weeks.  I've been trying some new recipes that I'll be posting soon and adding to my index page for Low-Glycemic Thanksgiving Recipes.  Those are all recipes designed to help you celebrate without straying too far.  There are plenty of good ideas there from other years, so take a peek if you're one of those people who starts early thinking about the Thanksgiving menu.  And Happy November everyone!

(You can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.)

A while back I decided after doing these round-ups for over three years that I'd start limiting them to new ideas for Phase One Recipes.   I'm not sure if that's why I didn't find as many things as usual this month, or if it's just that everyone was making pumpkin treats.  But no worries, because the recipes I did include in the round-up all look stellar!  Of course I always find things that could easily be made Phase One with a few changes, so those modifications are noted after the recipe links. And if you're a food blogger who's posted something that might be a new idea for Phase One, see after the list of recipes 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.  (Since I've been doing these Round-ups since March 2008, occasionally I may decline a recipe if the same thing has been featured several times already.  Please don't leave recipe links in the comments. They will not be published.)

  11. Thanks for the link love Kalyn! I've been eating way too much sugar and too many baked goods lately (all those yummy Southern gluten-free baked goods!) and it would be good to get my eating back on track... looks like you've got some great suggestions here.

  12. Cate, my pleasure. And we all slip up sometimes; I'm getting myself back on track right now too!

  13. Love that you share these as I'm about to embark on the SBD. Have you considered making printable menus for the various phases?! :D

  14. Kendra, I know that I'm never going to make menus; I feel that type of service should be left to the official South Beach Diet site. (Plus I've never made a weekly menu even for myself and would have no idea how to plan a menu that would work for others.)
