South Beach Diet Recipes To Keep You On Track

By Matt Murren

No matter what phase of the South Beach diet you are on, you will need tasty South Beach diet recipes to keep you on the road to weight loss success. The key to success is discipline. The easiest way to be disciplined is to have easy and affordable meals that adhere to the South Beach diet plan. In this article, we will cover recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

South Beach Breakfast Ideas

One of my personal favorites for breakfast are the low carb pancakes. If you have a problem letting the carbs go, these pancakes will fill you up and keep your diet on the right path.

Here’s how you make the Low Carb South Beach pancakes:

· 2 eggs

· 1 cup almond flour (Here’s the secret)

· ¼ cup of water

· 2 tablespoons of oil

· ¼ teaspoon of salt

· 1 T sweetener

Mix them together just like normal pancakes. The one difference you will notice is that they don’t bubble up like most pancakes do. Don’t forget the nonstick pan with light oil.

South Beach Diet Lunch Ideas

Lunch is always fun. Most people need something they can pack for the road. The one meal I have found easy to make and quite tasty is the BLT Wrap. Make sure you toss the bread and use the lettuce as the wrap.

BLT Wrap Ingredients:

· 3 slices of bacon, cook until crispy and chop

· 2 tablespoons of mayo (regular Is fine)

· ½ cup of raw chopped up tomatoes

· Black pepper or seasoning

· Green Lettuce

Mix everything up in a bowl with some pepper or other seasoning. I have tried it with cayenne and it wasn’t too bad. Take the mix and spoon it into the lettuce. Wrap it up and you have yourself a tasty BLT without the baggage.

The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less

From Publishers Weekly

The 30-minute time limit for preparing dinner, popular with Rachael Ray and a host of other cookbook authors, has finally been South Beachified. It's just in time for dieters who've grown bored (or impatient) with The South Beach Diet Cookbook and offers easy recipes that help dieters stay on track. The recipes span all courses, including desserts. Most impressive are the entrées and salads, particularly in their ability to riff on familiar dishes: witness Spaghetti with White Clam Sauce, Chicken and Avocado Salad, and South Beach Classic Burger. Even more inventive fare, such as Thai Shrimp Soup with Lime and Cilantro, is still homey. Adding to the book's unthreatening feel is its idiosyncrasies. It favors certain spices (cilantro, black pepper), vegetables (asparagus, zucchini) and meats and fish (chicken and shrimp). The ingredient glossary is surprisingly enticing, and the introductory material explains modern eating habits and makes the South Beach Diet highly sensible. Photos. (Oct.)

South Beach Diet Dinner Ideas

Where’s the beef. Ok, so you might be starving by now so this recipe is sure to meet your palates needs. This meal is great for grilling as well.

Pepper Beef Tenderloin Ingredients:

· 1 pound of beef tenderloin

· ½ tablespoon of minced garlic

· 2 tablespoons minced shallots

· ½ tablespoon of fresh minced rosemary

· 1 teaspoon of salt

· 1 tablespoon ground black pepper

· 1 teaspoon orange zest

· 2 tablespoons olive oil

· ½ cup pearl onions

The trick to this recipe is to preparing the onions and sauce just right. Bring the water to a boil and boil the onions for a few minutes, then drop them into cold water. Then, take a skillet and heat up the olive oil and throw the shallots in for a couple minutes. Before you throw the beef on the grill, take the olive oil and rub the beef down.

Now take the pepper, salt, rosemary, orange zest, and garlic, mix it together and put the mix on the tenderloin. Now you are ready to throw the meat on the BBQ. Make sure you preheat the BBQ and sear both sides keeping the juices in. Best served medium rare, or to your liking.

Now you have no excuses to now stick to the diet. The above recipes are easy and will keep you satisfied on your journey to losing weight.
