South Beach Suggestions:
Greens are the most healthful foods you can eat, and when they’re sauteed in heart-healthy olive oil like this, they make a great low-glycemic side dish for any phase of the South Beach Diet.
I chose the South Beach Diet to manage my weight partly so I wouldn’t have to count calories, carbs, points, or fat grams, but if you want nutritional information for a recipe, I recommend entering the recipe into Calorie Count, which will calculate it for you.
