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

Kalyn's Favorite Phase One Recipes for August 2013 were Grilled Zucchini Caprese Stacks; Green Bean, Tomato, and Feta Salad; Summer Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese; and Slow Cooker Frittata with Kale.

I really love September, when Utah has the most perfect weather imaginable, but I have to admit I always feel a sense of impending loss when I realize that summer flavors are not going to be around much longer.  And if you look through this round-up of South Beach Diet Phase One (Low-Glycemic) Recipes from the past month, you'll notice that there's definitely a summer-foods theme in the ones that are from my own blog.  I can't help myself; when I have fresh tomato salads and zucchini, that's about all I want to eat!  Luckily there are lots of options featured from other blogs to round out the menu of delicious low-glycemic recipes for this month; hope you enjoy trying some of them!  (You can use the label Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups to see all the posts like this one.)

When I'm saving links for this round-up, every month I find things that could easily be made suitable for Phase One with minor changes, so any needed adaptations are noted after the recipe links.  And if you're a food blogger who's posted something that might be a fun low-glycemic recipe idea 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.  (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 They will not be published.)

Thanks Lydia. I do love finding them, but I confess that when I procrastinate until the last day it does take a long time to pull this together!
