South Beach Diet - Is this okay for Phase I - Tandori Chicken

FI and I treated ourselves to Indian food last night. We passes on the rice and naan, and he ordered a mixed tandori grille (chicken, shrimp and lamb) and I had tandori chicken - it was all white meat.

I think it's SBD friendy and we'd like to treat outrselves now and agian, but would love to make sure it's phase one and SBD approved.

Sounds good to me unless there was sugar in the rub. Even then, a wee bit won't hurt in the big scheme of things. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet, remember.

This was posted in another Forum and Suzanne and I think it's the best diet advice ever:
Don't get all hinky about it, you'll drive yourself batty.

Thanks for the response... it was so good, I didn't even miss the rice or the naan. Okay, I missed the naan a little.

Hi Tilley,
We are big fans of indian food as well. I make it alot from scratch at home now and we tend to steam vegies to have on the side, or use a small portion of brown rice now that we are on phase 2 or use lentils and chickpeas as the base. They are all great alternatives!

Great advice about not getting crazy about it as well!
