Any ideas? I have to face the fact that I mainly eat vegetarian, and I am thinking about jumping back on to the SBD as I had success with it when I stuck to it.

I know there are probably other threads on here about this, maybe you could point me to some good info, or links :D xo

Luckily there are SO MANY vegetarian SBD recipes residing right here! :carrot::broc:
Some of my favorites are: zucchini and/or eggplant lasagna, butternut squash mac & cheese, veggie chili, pumpkin black bean soup and grilled tofu or vegetarian sausages on a bed of sauteed cabbage (much like the "crack slaw" in the recipes section). Start with the Entrees - Phase 2 (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/entrees-phase-2-135/)section. Many of the recipes are identified as vegetarian, or can easily be substituted with tofu, seitan or fake meat products.

Two things I haven't tried yet but want to:
Greens and Quinoa pie (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/entrees-phase-2/194806-greens-quinoa-pie.html)
Butternut Squash Lasagna (http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/entrees-phase-2/154936-butternut-squash-lasagna.html)

Here is something I tried that I loved (from another site): Spinach Ricotta Balls (http://cookeatshare.com/recipes/spinach-and-ricotta-balls-gnudis-316894)

In general I tend to eat more servings of beans, probably too much nuts and cheese (which can add up quickly). I go back and forth between completely vegetarian and eating some fish. I have also gone vegan several times but right now I am not.

Have fun!

Thank you so much!!! I am excited about starting up again. My boyfriend loves meat, as does my daughter, but they will have to start cooking, ha! lol.

If you do a search, several threads on this topic will probably come up. It's very easy and do-able to be a vegetarian South Beacher. :) I can make the majority of the recipes by just switching a vegetarian substitute for the meat. And as EmmaD pointed out, there are several great vegetarian recipes in our forum, too.

Good luck!
