South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes Round-up for February 2014 (Low-Glycemic Recipes)

South Beach Diet Phase One Low-Glycemic Recipes Round-Up for February 2014
Kalyn's favorite Phase One Recipes from February 2014 were Baked Eggs in Canadian Bacon Cups, Roasted Cabbage with Lime and Sriracha, Baked Chicken Strips with Mustard, Almond, and Parmesan, and Easy Taco Soup.

It's March, and personally I couldn't be happier about it.  Not that I should be complaining because at my house it only snowed a couple of times in February, and the last few days we've been having temperatures in the 60s!  Everyone in Utah doesn't know whether to celebrate or worry, because usually when it gets warm early like this, we end up getting dumped on with snow in late April or early May, when everyone has their garden planted and we really want it to be warm.  So for now we're kind of holding our breath and sending condolences to people on the east coast who seem to be getting all the snow.  Of course the new month means it's time for me to round up all the South Beach Diet Phase One Recipes I posted or spotted on other blogs during the past month and add it to our archives of Phase One Round-ups.  And once again there are a lot of good ones, enjoy!

Every month when I'm watching for Phase One Recipes I find things that could easily be suitable with minor changes, so those things are noted after the 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 They will not be published.)
