Smile South Beach Diet Suggestions

Hi there, My husband and I decided to start the South Beach diet. His father had a quadruple bypass at the age of 50...I don't want to deal with that at such an early age. We're only in our 20's but the earlier the better..

we drive for a living.. which will make dinners a challenge. In the past I usually did sandwiches. I was thinking about doing tuna fish.. and other meats (delimeat) lettuce wraps. Any other on-the-go suggestions?

And any recipe ideas for breakfast, lunches, dinners? Desserts?
Any help would be awesome! Thanks!

We recently had a similar thread where suziquzie was looking for healthy portable lunches for her truck driving husband. That thread might give you some ideas.

Give us some ideas on your situation (local day delivery or long-haul), if long-haul - refrigeration available in the truck, ability to heat a meal in the truck, ability to cook on the road, etc. - or are you looking at just cold food items stuff from a truck stop "grocery"?

Thank you for the link.
We do daily stops out of our car. Today I did some tuna lettuce wraps. They came out good and then I packed a bunch of veggies, some cheese and water. It all came out good.
I started googling different recipes. some of which sound really good and quick meals.
Thank you...

You'll be able to go over to whole wheat bread and such on Phase 2, correct? So maybe you can start having sandwiches again at some point. Here's a good recipe for egg/cheese muffins you can eat on the go. I love these.

and another

Good luck!

I suggest you buy the South Beach Diet book that was written by Arthur Agatston. It has a lot of good recipes in it. If you have a Costco card, the book is quite reasonably priced there.

I make the egg muffins using mostly egg whites. The silicon muffin pans work very well for them. I made my husbands muffins this week with lean cooked ham, mushrooms and spring onion, he loved them!

Kalyns blog is great, I've tried a few of the recipes on there.

The egg "muffins" with Eggbeaters are great!

For desserts, low fat ricotta flavored with artificial sweetener and vanilla (or other) extract is delicious!
