South Beach Diet Phase One Low-Glycemic Recipes Round-up for January 2014

Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipes from January 2014 were Low-Carb No-Egg Breakfast Bake with Turkey Breakfast Sausage and Cheese, Green Chile and Chicken Mock Enchilada Casserole, Turkey Picadillo Lettuce Wraps, and Vegan Spaghetti Squash and Black Bean Mexican Bowl.

It's Superbowl Sunday, undoubtedly one of the most indulgent food holidays of the entire year.  I realize most people are probably looking for Superbowl Recipes and here I am sharing my once-a-month round-up of South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes.  And although there are certainly some recipes here that would make fine Superbowl-watching food, the real reason the round-up is coming today is that after I finished posting Daily Phase One Recipes for the whole month of January (whew!) I just had to have a little break, even if it meant that the Phase One Round-up didn't come out on the first day of the month like it usually does.  Yesterday I puttered around the house, went to a movie with a friend and mostly forgot about my blogs for the day.  But the Superbowl only lasts one day and this round-up has some deliciously healthy recipes that I know you'll want to make over and over again, so I hope you'll take a look and pick something to try even if I'm a day late sharing it! 

Every month when I share these recipes I find things on other blogs that can easily be made 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 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.)

Whew! What a terrific round-up this month. Thanks for including one of my recipes.

I love your blog, but hate the videos that start playing at the bottom of the posts without me activating them. Is there any way to keep that from happening?

Kalyn Denny said...

Thanks Lydia!

Stef, that should NOT be happening (I am not contracted for any video ads, especially not the kind that start automatically.) Can you tell me exactly where you saw it (first or second ad after the comments?) And if you see it again, if you send me a screen shot of the ad I can send it to my ad company. Meanwhile I will keep an eye out for it myself; thanks for letting me know.
