South Beach Diet - Dinner Ideas for on the run Phase 1

02-24-2010, 08:06 AM
I am going to be on the go all day to day. I need to think of something other than Salad to eat for dinner tonight. Something I can take with me or maybe in the car!!!! Any suggestions would help this busy mom with kids in sports. I do not want to blow it and I am SICK of salads today!!!

DO you have time to do a Wendy's run? I love their chili on busy days like that.

Oh good idea maybe I can get one and heat it up before I go or put it into a thermos. Is that phase 1 worthy? I am just sick of salads at this point

How about a roast chicken from the store? I have to pull the skin off, otherwise I'm tempted. They are usually a little saltier than I like, but transportable and P1 friendly. Then you could take the carcass, throw it in a pot with water and with adding veggies and lentils or beans you'd have a ready made soup.

You're Phase I? I usually pack snacks in that situation - nuts, cheese cubes or cheese stick, deviled or hard boiled eggs, hummus with raw veggies, soup in a thermos, 3 bean salad, a piece of frittata, a bean brownie,

Wendy's chili is ok for Phase 1. I wouldn't do it every day, but once in a while is fine. I always have the side salad with it to, but I guess since you are sick of salads you could skip that. Of course, if you're able to bring a thermos, you could also rummage through the fridge and see if there are any leftovers you can heat up quick before you leave your house.

Can you pack beans with you, it's tres healthy!

If you've got a thermos, how about making the refried bean soup or the broccoli cheese soup and bringing those along with you? (Recipes in the phase 1 soups here) Both are really quick and easy to fix and IMO both are OK lukewarm if they have to be. (My lunch break is often interrupted. ;) lol)

, soup in a thermos, 3 bean salad, a piece of frittata, a bean brownie,

What's a bean brownie? Sounds good.
