I love the cookbook because it has each Phase number next to it as well as an index and everything. I recommend printing it if you can. I have found the link for the cookbook as well as some others for some of the forums.

Jamie, I joined the one on Yahoo....ladies Jamie is right if you join the groups there are so many people who have great recipe ideas and there are so many threads. I had to click on the don't receive emails because every time someone posted I would get an email. The first day after I joined I had over 300 new emails with correspondence about the soutbeach diet. But I can still log into yahoo and see what the group is talking about myself instead of being emailed every minute about it.
For the ladies who requested the cookbook I sent it to your emails. Let me know if you received it. Enjoy!

Oh Brianna - I would so love that cookbook. Please send me a copy to bookmouse66@yahoo.ca

I am so getting tired of eggs already.

Kim

I will NEVER give up. It is not my destiny or your destiny to live the life of a fat person. That fat person is not who I am meant to be and I have the power to change it. Anything in my power I will do. ANYTHING. I will not give up until I get to goal.

I have just started south beach phase 1 and my husband is doing it with me as well. Here are some of the things that I made in preparation for my first two weeks. I made batch food on Sunday and everyday keep adding something to it. In Japan it is already Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 it's midnight Eastern Standard Time so my husband and I have been on SB phase 1 from Sunday. He has never dieted before so this is different for him but he is willing to try so I got to keep him interested in the food. Here are some of the recipes I made. Please let me know if you need anymore. Also if you send you your private email address I can send you a cook book in MS Word. I got it off a website.

Breakfast Meat & Veggie Balls
-- posted by deb1105 (original recipe from another group Avarah)

2 lbs. turkey breakfast sausage
1 lb. very lean ground beef
2 eggs or their equivalent in egg substitute
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup minced bell pepper
1/4 cup coarsely chopped mushrooms
pepper

Remove the sausage from the casings. Mix with ground beef until combined. Add all other ingredients and combine well.

Form into small balls (about two tbsp. per ball) and place on a broiler rack with has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Keep the meat mixture cold and dip your hands into a bowl of cold water while forming the meatballs in order to make this easier.

Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes, then turn and continue baking for another 15 minutes or so or until they're nicely browned and reach an internal temp of at least 165.

Freeze separately on a cookie sheet and then place in a freezer bag and freeze until you need them. 1 or 2 is a serving. (My husband loved these. I used red, green, yellow red pepper and cut it up small but big enough so that when you have to chew it, it lasts longer)

Light Quiche Lorraine
Serves 6

4 strips of turkey bacon, fried until crisp and crumbled
1/3 cup minced red onion
4 eggs
1 cup shredded light Swiss cheese
1/2 cup non fat sour cream
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Sprinkle bacon cheese and onions in bottom of a 9" pie pan.
Beat eggs lightly, and beat in remaining ingredients.
Pour cream mixture into pan. Bake for 35-45 min at 300F or until knife inserted 1" from edge comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Sausage and Cheese Breakfast Cup - P1
4oz turkey sausage or turkey bacon
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 onion chopped
5 large eggs
1 can(12oz) sliced mushrooms, drained
1/2 cup (2 oz) Shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese.
Preheat oven 350. Coat 6 cup non stick pan with cooking spray or line with paper cups(recommended).

In med skillet over med heat cook sausage, pepper and onion for 5 min or until sausage is no longer pink. Spoon in bowl and cool slightly. Stir in eggs and mushrooms, evenly divide between muffin cups. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake 20 min or until egg is set.

Turkey Sausage - P1 1 lb. ground turkey 2 T Splenda (or sugar free maple syrup) 2 tsp. salt (or less) 1 T sage 2 tsp. savory 1 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. red pepper (cayenne) 1/2 tsp. nutmeg Combine well. Brown with a little olive oil in a skillet, as crumbles or patties. Or form into patties and bake. Cook up a batch to keep in the freezer.

Vegetable Quiche Cups To Go- Phase 1
Serves 6

Ingredients
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach
3/4 cup liquid egg substitute
3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheese
1/4 cup diced green bell peppers
1/4 cup diced onions
3 drops hot-pepper sauce (optional)

Instructions
Microwave the spinach for 2 1/ 2 minutes on high. Drain the excess liquid.
Line a 12-cup muffin pan with foil baking cups. Spray the cups with cooking spray.

Combine the egg substitute, cheese, peppers, onions, and spinach in a bowl.
Mix well. Divide evenly among the muffin cups. Bake at 350F for 20 minutes, until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Quiche cups can be frozen and reheated in the microwave. Any combination of
appropriate vegetables and reduced-fat cheeses may be used.

I just completed phase 1. I found fixing egg beaters to be quick and easy. I feed my husband the same thing I eat.. perhaps you could fix one meal for your family to eat together. My baby is 40 so this may not work in today's world (ha). The quiche cups are good and I like having them in the fridge for those rushed mornings.. I had to get up an hour earlier to get breakfast in because I have a standing date for 8:30 at the gym. I was sleeping until 8:00 and then chugging a slim fast type drink. That did not work for me. I put on alot of weight thinking I was cutting calories.. I find planning the night before and getting it ready for the next day helps me. I keep chopped celery, onions and rely on grape tomatoes to fill in. I also keep lettuce in my spinner so when I get in a rush (which is when I make poor choices) and canned chicken breast and pouch tuna..for lunch to get me through and make good choices.. I hope this helps.

egg casseroles are great, cause they can be made ahead and then you just heat up a piece. Just fill a pyrex with whatever - green chile peppers and cheese and olives are a favorite of mine, another idea is turkey or soy breakfast sausage, or a bunch of veggies (onions, green peppers, etc) - and then beat a bunch of eggs - the number is dependent on how big the dish is - for the medium rectangular pyrex I usually use 8 eggs - just pour them over the top. Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes.

Or you can mix together eggs and cheese and filler (as above) - and cook in muffin cups, then they're pre-sized. Probably cook 20-30 minutes.

NON egg options are less versatile. You can make muffins and pancakes with almond meal (make sure the only ingredient is almonds!), but you can't really put anything on top. Also it takes a lot of time. You could make them on the weekend and freeze them individually and pop them in the toaster. It's an idea. And you can only eat like two 4" pancakes. AND that's your nut limit for the day.

Erm, my other non-egg idea is usually just to eat dinner leftovers, but that's my lunch strategy.
