South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-Up for June 2013 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipes for June 2013 were Spicy Chopped Greek-Style Salad, Grilled Halibut with Basil Vinaigrette, Grilled Chicken with Lemon, Capers, and Oregano, and Vietnamese Cabbage Salad.

It's July! In Utah this is a double-holiday month because we have Pioneer Day along with the 4th of July, so people here get two long weekends to spend celebrating.  And summer celebrations are prime time for grilling outside or starting to enjoy garden produce; I love the food from this time of year.  People tend to eat lighter foods when it's hot outside, which also makes this a perfect time to find new Phase One recipes from other blogs.  This round-up has some lovely ideas for grilled foods or garden vegetables; hope you'll find at least one or two recipes here that might become a favorite on your table.  (You can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.)

When I'm cruising around other food blogs looking for good Phase One recipes, I always find things that can be made suitable for Phase One with minor changes, so any changes needed are noted after the recipe link.  And if you're a food blogger who's posted something that might be a new idea for Phase One, see the bottom of this post 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 They will not be published.)

I am loving the veg recipes this month! They just jumping out to me more than usual for some reason!

Kalyn Denny said...

Joanne, I think summer = veggies! I love it! Glad you like the round-up!

SallyBR said...

What a WONDERFUL way to start the month of July, finding a recipe from my site featured on your round up, which by the way is great this month!

One of the things I love about the Summer is it makes it easy to eat light - and your collection of recipes fit that bill perfectly!

Have a wonderful 4th of July celebration, and thanks for thinking of me... ;-)

Hi Kalyn. Love all your stuff as usual. Just a heads up, there is a problem with the link to Vietnamese Cabbage Salad with Chicken and Cilantro. It looks like 2 of the w's got missed. :-)

Kalyn Denny said...

Thank you for the heads up, fixing it right now!
