Back when I was "Beachin'" this was probably one of my favorite recipes. Very easy to make and such a nice change from a piece of meat and veggies. This is Phase 1 appropriate, and tastes very good topped with shredded 2% cheddar, a dollop of plain yogurt, and avocado slices. Even non-dieters will enjoy this thick and hearty soup.
NOTE: To stay true to South Beach be sure and buy canned kidney beans with no added sugar and taco seasoning that is South Beach approved. I used Old El Paso.
This main meat dish is so flavorful and delicious; you can serve this to your family or dinner guests who won't guess that they are eating a recipe out of a "diet" cookbook. This recipe can be eaten during Phase 1 of the diet. Recipe courtesy of the South Beach Diet Cookbook.
Not for butter phobes! This is one of the best tasting and easiest dishes you'll ever make. I got the recipe from my friend Cindy but she doesn't know where she got it. I have yet to meet a person who doesn't love this. Serve with a big loaf of crusty bread and/or mashed pots.
This is a good way to introduce flaxmeal into your diet. These muffins are also Phase II appropriate for the South Beach Diet, just be sure to count this toward your daily nut/seed allowance. Believe me, when you have been craving bread, these muffins taste like heaven!
There are so many ways to serve this wonderful veggie. I use it in place of pasta. You can experiment with different sauces and herbs to create a great tasting dish. Try it with Alfredo sauce, or add some pesto and butter or your favorite herbs.

This is a healthy, quick and easy dish. At least once you split the spaghetti squash in half. The rosemary, sage and thyme makes this side a nice, grounding and comforting veggie. Also the sweet sauteed onions and garlic lends it lots of flavor topped with grated parmesan cheese. Servings are either a side or meal. Once you taste it you will continue on to make a meal out of it.
I had a chuck roast and didn't want to make the usual stew, so after looking at a lot of recipes, I decided to try this for a Mexican meal. I have used this meat for a number of dishes (most favorite is tacos, also burritos and topped nachos with it) I think it is far superior to using ground beef.
