South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-up for August 2012 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

Hungarian Cucumber Salad
Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipe for August was definitely Al's Famous Hungarian Cucumber Salad.

It's hard to believe it's Labor Day weekend, but I know the calendar doesn't lie.  I keep reminding myself that warm weather usually lasts at least through September in Utah, which is a good thing because I have some very tasty warm-weather foods to share in this Round-up of South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes that I've posted on Kalyn's Kitchen or found on other food blogs during August.  Once I have this collection of tasty Phase One Recipes posted, I'll be taking the rest of the holiday weekend off to relax and enjoy the nice weather.  Happy Labor Day weekend; I'll be back on Tuesday with a new recipe.

(You can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.)
Of course, every month when I'm saving these recipe links I find things that could easily be made Phase One with minor changes, so those adaptations 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, I would love to include it in the round-up for next month. 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.  (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.  I also don't link to recipes that feature paid product links or giveaways.  Please don't leave recipe links in the comments. They will not be published.)
