South beach diet recipes

I've been thinking about Tori over at almost there and how well she's coming along with her diet.Stop by and give her a word of encouragement. I think she's doing great!

Here's a few recipes to try:

Country Salad - Phase one
2 eggs
3 cups shredded romaine or iceberg lettuce
diced onion
1/4 cup diced red or green pepper
Lawry's seasoning salt and pepper
" I can't believe it's not butter"(icbinb)

Put the eggs on to boil (8 minutes from rolling boil to hard cooked.) Put other ingredients except butter in a large bowl and toss a bit.when eggs are done,run them under cold water just enough so that you can handle them.Peel and halve each one and place a small pat of "icbinb"between the halves and lay it on top of the salad.As soon as it is melted,cut up the eggs into small pieces with a sharp knife right on top of the salad.Toss enough to mix in the eggs and coat the ingredients with the melted stuff.Serve immediately. Serves one as main meal.
Spinach-cheese stuffed Chicken - Phase one
1-10 oz. package frozen chopped spinach,thawed
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
1 clove minced garlic
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
4 skinless,boneless chicken breasts
2 tablespoons Cajun dressing
2 tablespoons melted Smart Balance spread

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Squeeze excess water out of thawed spinach.
In a large bowl, mix spinach with onion, garlic, and cottage cheese and set aside.
Season chicken breasts with cajun seasoning,then place 1/4 of the spinach/cheese mixture into the center of each breast and fold in half.Secure with toothpicks and place in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish.Drizzle with melted Smart Balance spread and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear. Serve with a tossed salad. Makes 4 servings.

These are healthy recipes,whether your on the diet or not. Enjoy!

Hi Suzy

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Welcome!

I did South Beach a few years ago and loved it. I started it again today (after trying on a swimsuit yesterday - HA) so it was nice to see your South Beach recipes. Thanks.

It's late so I couldn't stay long on your blog tonight, but I'll come back.
