South Beach Diet: Breakfast

Since our first exposure to the South Beach Diet in 2003, Spike and I have been BIG FANS of two breakfast dishes.

The Vegetable Quiche Cups To Go are easy to make and quite tasty. They store like champs in the refrigerator and re-heat beautifully in the microwave. When I went back to graduate school, Spike handed me a couple of warm quiche cups to eat in the car during my 30+ minute commute to school. It was love in a Ziploc bag!

The Light Spinach Frittata with Tomato Salsa was the mainstay of our Saturday and Sunday brunches for years. We loved it so much that it easily trumped our enjoyment of any other frittata. Freshly prepared kale with onions, garlic, and a hint of balsamic vinegar can substitute for spinach should you like variety.

Honorable mentions include the Western Omelet, Oatmeal Pancake, and Sunrise Parfait.
