Taco bake is great as a full meal. You could serve it with a tossed salad and taco chips for those not on Phase I. I like mine over shredded cabbage.

I often make the Salsa Chicken for a group as well and serve it with a 3-bean salad and a green veggie of some sort. It's always a hit and perfectly OP. I sometimes do rice for the carb eaters.

I'll often make lasagne using whole wheat noodles and reduced fat ricotta and mozzarella. I use very lean meat and will often add spinach and zucchini. It depends on the audience as to whether I mix the meat and veggies through the whole lasagne or do half meat and half veggies. You can add a nice salad to go along with it.

Hope your dinner turned out well!

We recently did a slow cooked sirloin roast. We trimmed extra fat off of it, seared it in a hot pan 1st....and then put just a touch of low fat, low sodium beef broth in the slow cooker. Turned out amazing. Cooked it all night long.

We served it up with a ton of veggies. ANd for left overs.....we put in on mashed cauliflower. We still served rolls, etc for dinner for our non SB guests.

No one went home hungry, and we were satisfied too!

OBNurse, That sounds GREAT!

BTW, I'm still mad at the OB nurse who mashed on my belly after a c-section -- 5 years ago. I have fond memories of the other OB nurses.

I remember that from when I worked in Labor and Delivery.....hated doing it to people, but it was part of the job. Now that I work in the clinic, I can avoid that kind of fun stuff.

hope your dinner party went well.
I would serve a huge pot of chilli, you could serve several sides like chopped onion, grated cheese, corn bread for our non south beach friends.
whole wheat rolls, hope this helps.
