Exciting News For Kalyn: Kalyn’s Kitchen Featured in Woman’s World Magazine

If you’re a regular reader of Kalyn’s Kitchen you know I’ve been hinting for a while about some exciting news relating to a magazine, a photo shoot, and the reason I am no longer going to be able to keep my age a secret. Now it’s time to let you all in on it: Kalyn’s Kitchen was featured in an article about the South Beach Diet which appears in the March 14 issue of Woman’s World Magazine. The magazine showed up in stores today in Utah and other places too, judging from the number of blog visitors and e-mails I’ve been getting. Woman’s World is sold mostly in grocery stores near the checkstand if you want to see the article.

This exciting little adventure started a few months ago, when I got an e-mail from an editor at Woman’s World who was searching on the internet for South Beach Diet and stumbled on my humble little cooking blog. Within days, she had interviewed me and Utah photographer George Frey had come to my house for a photo shoot. (Thanks George, for making me look so good. You can contact him at georgefrey AT mac Dot com if you live in Utah and want a great photographer.)

I received a couple of copies of the magazine from Woman’s World a few days ago and my students were certainly excited to see their teacher in a magazine. One student even said, “Gee Ms. Denny, you sure aren’t fat any more.” Considering they’re only ten, I think that’s meant to be a compliment.

Welcome to anyone reading this who has found their way here from the article in Woman’s World. Kalyn’s Kitchen is my cooking blog, where I share recipes for the kind of delicious food that helped me lose 42 pounds, gain more energy than I’d ever had before, and stop taking cholesteral medicine. I love the South Beach Diet, and it has truly changed my life.

This is a food blog, not just a diet blog, so I also talk about other things related to good food here. If you’re not familiar with food blogs, the most recently published things are at the top of the main column. To see earlier recipes, go to the left sidebar and check out the Recipe Archives.

Leaving comments is part of the fun of a blog, and I’d love to hear from anyone visiting here. Just click on the word “comments” at the end of each post.

I’m not a diet expert, just an ordinary teacher who loves to cook, so I’m not qualified to give diet advice. I do recommend highly that you read The South Beach Diet book thoroughly before you start the diet.

If you have other questions about the site or any of the recipes, feel free to send me an e-mail (kalynskitchen AT comcast DOT net).

  1. Anonymous, if you stick with it, it will definitely work! Good luck.

  2. I just want to say thank you for continuing to inspire people like me who give up too easily. I have over 100 pounds to lose and several years ago I tried the SB diet and got to a 40 pound loss and then leveled off and quit. Part of the problem for me is cooking and I am so encouraged to see that you are staying with SB and still providing delicious recipes. Any suggestions for someone starting all over again? God Bless.

  3. Anonymous, look on the right sidebar under "South Beach Stuff" and there's a post I wrote about getting started on South Beach. And the only other advice I have is, don't panic if you slip and go off the diet, just get back again!

  4. Ms. Kalyn,
    Thank you so much for sharing your yummy recipe. Almost two years ago I bought a prevention guide thst featured the south beach diet 2-week quickstart plan. We tried it and loved the food and the results. My husband lost more than 75 pounds and has kept them off for a year and a half now. I love your recipies and I will try some of the breakfast casserole.

    Thank You,

    Lyn formerly of Kaysville UT and now from Hochspeyer Germany

  5. Hi Kalyn! I've been following your blog now for about a week and am addicted to your recipes! My husband and I decided to start the sbd this week after months of eating poorly. This is my 3rd time on the sbd. 🙂 1st was before my wedding, 2nd after the first baby and 3rd is now after our second child! Each time I achieved my goal weight and stayed there until the next baby. 🙂 I wanted to write you to say that I love your recipes! I've tried about 6 of them from your recipe favorites and my husband keeps telling me how much easier it is this time around (he does the sbd when I do it because I cook the food haha). That is all thanks to your awesome recipes! The first few times we suffered a bit because of the lack of variety. Now my hubby says that he doesn't feel like he's on a diet at all. We're already relatively thin people (113lbs and 150lbs) but wanted to get healthier. I was feeling so sluggish with two kids from loads of junk food and the cravings were insatiable! We're on day 4 of phase 1 and we haven't felt tired at all! Thanks so much for your blog. I think you'll see me more regularly on your blog from now on. 🙂 Thanks again!

  6. Slice thanks so much. So glad to hear you're enjoying the blog.

  7. Hello Kalyn,

    I love your blog. You are such a big inspiration to me. I was diagnosed with Insulin resistance a year ago after going through lot of suffering and mis-diagnosis. But now Iam glad to find what's wrong and how to control the problem. Low carb food has really helped me and recipes from the wonderful blog land doenot make healthy eating boring 🙂 Thank you for putting this blog together and sharing your story. You were the motivation to start my blog.
    Hugs 🙂

  8. Sheetal, that's great. So glad the blog is helpful and that you're doing well.

  9. Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your successful diet plan. I'm helping my husband to lose weight through the South Beach diet. He loves soup. The pressure cooker is the way to go. I work full time and am on the bus to and from work about 3 hours a day. I'll be looking for your hints for quick meals.

  10. Anonymous, there are about 800 recipes in the archives (on the left side) including some for pressure cooker soups, so have fun!

  11. Hi, Kalyn. It's a very snowy day in the Northeast and I decided to access your blog because my very wise niece, Laura, recommeneded it to me.
    I am a retired school teacher who has been blessed with four beautiful grandchildren that I have been caring for from time to time since I've retired.
    I love the South Beach eating plan and have been following it off and on for several years.
    I do not like cooking but find myself to be inspired my the South Beach recipes both in the book and on your blog. I refuse to call this a 'diet' , except in the true, dictionary mode: an eating plan. It is not a sacrifice and is so healthy on so many levels. I even spend time in the kitchen because although this way of eating takes planning, the actual cooking feels much less burdensome than other plans. I have finally lost that last ten pounds and feel like I have a handle on keeping it off or, at least, a plan that will get me back there[phase one]. Peace and healthy eating!

  12. Thanks for all the nice feedback about the blog. I do agree South Beach is a very user-friendly way to manage your weight.

  13. Hi Kalyn,
    I am so glad I found your wonderful, down to earth blog. Just when I need it most.
    I can't stop wanting to eat and I feel out of control. Last year I had no trouble losing 10kg and I felt great.

    Unfortunately my husband has just been diagnosed with dementia. I thought I was dealing with it OK as it is not as devastating a condition as Alzheimer.Do you think I'm using food to console myself?

    I have always eaten healthy low GI
    food and loads of fruit and veg and I feel your way of eating is just right for me but HOW do I get back on track?

  14. Anonymous, it does sound like you have a lot to deal with, and I know emotional upsets can trigger stress eating in a lot of people. I don't really have the expertise to give this kind of dieting advice; I only know that once I had my mind made up to do it, the South Beach Diet worked for me. Good luck to you as you figure it out.

  15. Hi Kalyn,

    I recently came upon your site while searching for South Beach Diet recipes. I have tried a few, and they are delicious and easy to make. Today (although it's been a few years), I saw how you were featured in Women's World magazine. That must have been exciting for you. Congratulations. Women's World is one of my favorite magazines. They have such great articles. Just wanted to thank you for such a great site along with helpful information. I look forward to trying more of your recipes soon.


  16. Thanks Julie. It was definitely exciting. Having a professional photo shoot was the most fun part (he made me smile so big my mouth ached, and I was sure the photos would look terrible, but they didn't.)

    Glad you're enjoying the blog and the recipes!

  17. Kalyn, thank you so much for all of the time and effort you spend on this amazing blog.
    I love food, and I love to eat. I've been addicted to the food network since I was about 10 years old. I love reading recipes and trying/eating new things. So, with that said, you'd think I know how to cook…well I don't. I have no cooking intuition whatsoever. I try, but Im capable of burning water.
    Anyway, I'm a single mother of a one year old princess and I'm overweight. I haven't had much luck shredding the excess baby weight but I must admit I haven't given it %100 and the fact that there are not enough hours in the day, is a HUGE reason why I haven't lost the weight that I want to.
    I've tried the South Beach Diet with MUCH success….I lost 10 pounds that I have not gained back. I truly believe in the SB way of eating/living.
    I read that you would freeze food in the weekend to be prepared for the week. I'm very interested in the logistics of this because I know if I spent most of my meal planning time in the weekend, and didn't have to worry about it during the week, then I know I could have more success. Can you point me in the right direction?

    Thank you! God bless you!

  18. Liz, use the tab for Recipes That Can Freeze to find things you can make on the weekend and freeze. (That loads 20 recipes at a time, then click "older posts" at the bottom to see 20 more.)

  19. Kalyn, I just wanted to say I LOVE your blog! I've been following and using your recipes for years. Everything I've made has been delicious. Thank you for making it easy and fun to eat low-carb!

  20. Hi Kaylyn,
    Thanks for all the inspiring recipes! My mom is trying to find her article from 2006 because she enjoyed the "sample menu" so much and felt it the easiest way to get started. Although I have the books, she insists on the article. I have contacted WW magazine and sent $ requesting the copy but never heard back from them (its been over a year) is there any way I can get a copy of that issue?

    • I think your mom must have this confused with some other article, because there was never a sample menu included with this article in Woman's World. Sorry to disappoint you. You might want to look at this page if you want support for South Beach. It has some useful links, as well as information about a really excellent South Beach Diet Support facebook Page.
