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

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipes for November 2013 were Green Beans with Tahini-Lemon Sauce, Easy Brussels Sprouts Gratin, Rich Salad with Hearts of Palm, and Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Avocado and Pecans.

Back in 2008 when I had the brainstorm to post a monthly round-up of all the South Beach Diet Phase One Low-Glycemic Recipes I spotted around the web or featured on Kalyn's Kitchen during that month, I was definitely not thinking about months like November!  When nearly every food blog is posting recipes for Thanksgiving foods, you're just not going to find as many Phase One Recipes as usual.  But even if this months round-up is a bit smaller than some, with a definite emphasis on side dishes, I promise there are some deliciously-healthy recipes here for anyone who's doing Phase One or looking for lower-carb eating options.  And it's December 1, so Thanksgiving weekend is officially over and it's time to get back on track!

Of course, every month I find recipes that can easily be Phase One with minor changes, so those things 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 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 They will not be published.)

I made the roasted brussel sprouts and pecans for Thanksgiving and they were a big hit. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes.

These are great recipes that have plenty of flavor (healthy too) so you don't feel like you are missing out on anything during the holidays.

Thanks for sharing.
