South Beach Diet: Side Dishes

Since our introduction to Oven Roasted Vegetables, this dish has been a mainstay of our diet. It’s easy to make up a big batch of vegetables and then re-heat them throughout the course of a working week. Simple and tasty works for me!

If you choose this diet for weight loss, the Surprise South Beach Mashed “Potatoes” provide a decent substitute for traditional starchy tubers. The main ingredient is cauliflower, and it is indeed surprisingly tasty.

One final highlight: I’ve used the Turkey Roll-Ups with Cilantro Mayonnaise as a mid-day snack. It’s palate-pleasing and provides that extra jolt of protein to help me moderate my appetite until dinner.
