Everyone who is raring to go and ready to start Phase One today, raise your hand. (Kalyn’s hand is raised high in the air.) I knew it was time for Phase One when I looked back at my folder of recipes I’d found during December for this Round-Up and saw how few Phase One Recipes I made myself during the month! But what may be lacking in quantity is more than made up in quality in this Round-Up. And if you’re starting Phase One today and looking for ideas, there is always the Phase One Recipe Index or the Index Page for the Monthly Phase One Recipe Round-Ups to look through. And just like last year, I’ll be featuring Daily Phase One Recipes all during January to help you keep on track. Now, let’s see the delicious recipes I found in December.
When I’m looking for these recipes every month, I find things that can be made Phase One with minor changes. Those things are noted after the recipe links. And if you’re a food blogger who’s posted something that might be a new idea for Phase One, see after the recipe links for how to submit it.
Phase one menus for the South Beach Diet focus on lean meats, seafood, eggs, dried beans, soy products, low-fat dairy products, nuts and seeds, and most vegetables. Phase one doesn’t permit fruit, alcohol, bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, sugar, or any foods high in saturated fat. Obviously I miss lots of phase one recipes, so if you’re a food blogger who posted a recipe this month that you think would be approved for phase one, please feel free to e-mail me the link at kalynskitchen (at) comcast (dot) net. I’ll take a look, and if the recipe is phase-one friendly, I’ll add it to next months roundup. (Since I’ve been doing these Round-ups since March 2008, occasionally I may decline a recipe if the same thing has been featured several times already. Please don’t leave recipe links in the comments. They will not be published.)
