Thanks for Your Interest in Kalyn’s Kitchen!
Kalyn’s Kitchen is my personal blog, where I share recipes I’m cooking in my own kitchen. I hope my blog is a resource for anyone who likes the kind of creative carb-conscious recipes this blog is known for.

Answering Questions from Readers:
I love to hear from people who are readers of Kalyn’s Kitchen and will do my best to answer simple questions, although I don’t have the training or the time to give full-fledged dieting advice. If your question is about a specific recipe, please consider leaving it as a comment on that post so others can benefit from the answer.

How to Leave a Comment:
To leave a comment, just click where it says “Leave a Reply” at the end of the post. Some comments will come to me in an e-mail and won’t show up on the blog until I publish them, and I’m not sitting by the computer waiting for comments 100% of the time, so thanks for your patience!

Reach me Through Social Media:
I try to check in with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest a few times each day, and try to respond to people who reach me there, but I can’t always keep up with comments on social media so if you really need to reach me, leaving a comment on the blog or sending e-mail is better.

My Thoughts About Reviewing Cookbooks or Products
This blog is about what I’m cooking in my own kitchen, so I’m only interested in talking about cookbooks or products I’m personally using and would happily buy again. Because I have limited time to try new products or cookbooks, I have decided to no longer accept books or other products for review. I do love to mention cookbooks I’m using and talk about my favorite products on the blog, but when I do that I enjoy being able to tell my readers that I bought them myself. (If you’re a food blogger who has written a book, feel free to drop me a line to let me know about it and if it interests me I’ll be happy to buy your book.)

Working with Other Bloggers:
I don’t use guest posts of any kind, and don’t participate in any kind of sponsored campaigns. I am happy to have my work included in blogger recipe round-ups (as long as it doesn’t include the actual recipe and uses a format that features a photo plus a link to get the recipe from my site.)

  1. Hi Sara,

    I really know nothing about insulin resistance disorder so I hesitate giving advice to someone who is using the diet for a medical condition. I do recommend thoroughly read the original South Beach Diet book though; I think that will answer most of these questions about things like portion size and what foods are best. Also you might check with your doctor for some of these questions, such as the one about having another snack. Good luck.

  2. Good Morning Kalyn, My name is Sara and live in Pennsylvaia.My doctor recently find out my insulin resistance level was very high and also fatty liver. I started the phase one of South beach baed on my doctor recommendation and I struggle with the recipes. I see here that youhave so many different recipes. I want to know if I canuse your recipes for phase one and what about snacking. Im only eating the suggested snacks in the book. I am actually following only the book recipes and meal plan. what about the portions?? am confused with the portions, do i need to measure everything and also Can i have the suggested snack and latr if I crave for something have a nother snack??? Thanks for your help!!

  3. The only thing I can think of offhand is Roasted Garbanzo Beans. There are a couple of recipes for them on the blog if you use the search box.

  4. Hi am looking for an SBD friendly snack that doesn't spoil so I can leave it in my desk as something to nibble on when I get hungry. no refrigeration required is a necessity.

    no nuts please!

  5. Hi Kalyn,

    Thank you for your superb blog. I've been eating low GI/SBD-style for some time now but due to some health problems have recently started trying to cut wheat from my diet. Your phase 1 recipes have been a tremendous help to me during this time – the eggplant pizzas were the thing that made me think 'you know what? I can make this wheat-free thing work!'. So a thousand thank yous!

  6. Hi Kalyn – My hubby lost 40 lbs on SBD 10 years ago but has slowly gained it back. Neither of us was too excited about starting over with another 2 weeks of eggs, chicken and zucchini. Since finding your blog we've gone through P1 without feeling deprived – we're just just eating delicious food and we have so many choices. Thanks for all your hard work – tonight we're having chicken (piccata) and zucchini (cheesy baked) but it's so good!

  7. Hi Kayln…Was feeling a bit intimidated about starting on the SB diet, but after finding your website and having a look through all of your thoughtfully selected recipes, my husband and I cannot wait to get started. I'm looking forward to taking control of my diet while being able to try some amazing new recipes. Thanks for taking the time to put together this website.

  8. HI Kalyn! I just recently got back into southbeach diet and your website has certainly made being on this diet so much fun! I was dreading getting back into it (especially phase 1) but your website made every day go by so fast! I can't believe I'm now on Phase 2 Day 9 and absolutely enjoying it! Thank you sooo much and keep those great recipes coming!

  9. Becky, I am so glad to hear you are enjoying the recipes and that they are helping you through Phase One. Thanks for taking time to write!

  10. Kalyn,

    I am sure you get many comments and emails on a daily basis, but I just wanted to thank you so much for your blog. My husband and I were on the South Beach diet a few months back, and fell off about around the holidays. We are now back on our second week of phase one. This time around, we are cooking recipes from your blog and never before have we actually enjoyed this phase!!

    We have found most of the recipes out there to be unsatisfying leaving us feeling like phase one was basically oppressive and hard to stick with. Your recipes are not only delicious, but help us stick to our diet goals. Who would have ever imagined I could get my husband to eat any green vegetable — let alone KALE!! I don't normally contact the authors of the blogs we use, but yours has been an invaluable tool and I am just so grateful for all of your hard work. This is exactly what we needed.

  11. There are quite a few salad dressing listed on this page:

    Phase One Salads and Salad Dressings

    You could probably find more by entering "salad dressing" into the search bar.

  12. I stumbled onto your site by accident when looking for info to restart the SBD. I fell off the wagon and wanted to restart my "new" way of eating and losing weight. I would love some recipes for salad dressings. The store bought ones are so high in sodium, and I have to watch that closely. Any suggestions? I'm not a fan of bleu cheese, but I love ranch and vidalia onion/tomato dressing. Any help would be appreciated.
    I started the diet with my daughter two years ago and was doing well, but got busy taking care of my elderly mother and lost my way. My daughter lost 110# and has maintained it for all this time. I'm so proud of her, I want to do the same, and needed something like your blog to get me back on track. Thanks for your dedication. I found many great ideas. Back to salad dressings, any ideas? Thanks, Deb

  13. Catherine, I'm so glad you are enjoying the blog!

  14. I discovered your blog about a month ago, and have been cooking dinner almost exclusively from your recipes for a couple of weeks. My husband wants to lose 20 more pounds (he's lost 40) and I want to lose about 10. We've done South Beach before, and I stumbled upon your blog while doing a google search on SB diet recipes. THANK YOU for having delicious low-glycemic recipes.
    I also happen to be a teacher; middle school special ed.

  15. Shari, I make the ranch dressing from the Hidden Valley packets (buttermilk version, low-fat mayo). For Caesar, I love Cardini's Caesar, which is recommended in one of the books. I think most dressings are okay for South Beach as long as there is not more than 2-3 grams of sugar per serving and the fat is olive oil or soybean oil.

  16. Just found your blog and I love the recipes! I've done South Beach in the past and found it to be limiting in terms of cooking for me vs. cooking for the rest of the family. Your recipes seem much more inclusive of the enitre family (so I can just cook one meal for everyone). Do you have any suggestions for healthy (South Beach) versions of ranch or Caesar type salad dressings?

    Thank you!!

  17. Loved the recipe for apple cranberry crumble. My suggestion is that after sauteing the apples in a cast iron pan, you put the topping on and put the whole thing in the oven. It's a homey, delicious looking presentation (with less dishes to wash) in the pan. Yum!

  18. Kalyn~ I started again on the South Beach diet on New Years Day. I have already lost 11 pounds. And I have used your site every step of the way. Thank you for all your hard work to make my life a little bit easier.

  19. I can't believe I just found you today!! I am very excited and will visit often. What a terrific job you have done.

  20. Kaylyn, thank you so much. Your wonderful recipes keep me motivated. They are truly taste sensations. Even my picayune naturally skinny husband enjoys htm (as long as I make him some potatoes too). Thank you!
