South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-up for September 2013 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipes for September 2013 were Three Cheese Zucchini Frittata, Baby Kale Paleo Taco Salad, Sriracha Beef Cabbage Bowl, and Roasted Balsamic Zucchini and Mushrooms.



Another month has gone screaming by, and it's time for me to share the links I've collected all month for this round-up of low-glycemic recipes. (All the recipes here are suitable or easily adapted for the South Beach Diet Phase One, and many are also Low Carb, Gluten Free or Paleo.)  And I probably say this every month, but what a great-looking collection of healthy recipe ideas!  

It's been a busy month behind the scenes at Kalyn's Kitchen.  If you follow me on Facebook, you know I'm in the middle of having the blog re-designed.  I'm aiming for a new site that will feel very similar (with most functional elements located exactly where they are now) but the new look will also have expanded features (including a second row of tabs with categories to make it easier to find certain types of recipes.)  I'm getting excited, and it won't be long now, so keep an eye out for the new look!

Meanwhile, if you want to see more collections of recipes like these, the new label for Low-Glycemic Recipe Round-Ups will let you scroll through all the posts like this one.  (For Pinterest fans, there's also a Pinterest board for Kalyn's Kitchen South Beach Diet Phase One Recipe Round-ups.)  And of course there's still a recipe index page over on the left where you can easily find the round-up from a certain month.

Of course, no matter how hard I look, I'll never find all the great low-glycemic recipes posted in a month, so if you're a food blogger who's posted something that might be a new 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.)
