There’s nothing better than a comforting, fulfilling meal at the end of a long day. When you’re on a diet plan, comfort can be in short supply. But that’s not the case with the South Beach Diet meal delivery service. Meats and cheese (pretty much the cornerstones of comfort food) are permitted on our meal plan and star in virtually each of the dinners listed below. Extra spices and vegetables can be added at will. This is your dinner and your diet. Make it work for you!
Check out 10 of our favorite delicious and easy dinners:
Want to go “out” to dinner tonight? Make this cheesy, fancy-enough-for-a-restaurant chicken dish. It’s one of our all-time-favorite dinners. Up the “fancy” factor by pairing some roasted artichokes or summer squash. Add some candles and soft dinner music, and you’ll be transported right out of your kitchen.
What’s the best part about this savory chicken dinner? It’s a gourmet-style bowl filled with flavorful ingredients. It features grilled chicken, fresh bell peppers, onions, black beans, riced cauliflower and a smoky chipotle sauce. Topped with Monterey jack and jalapenos, this delicious dinner is perfect for this busy weeknights.
South Beach Diet customer, Martha, wrote in an online review explaining that she enjoys adding peppers and hot sauce to give this Texas-Style Chili some extra spice. “Much easier than making a whole pot of homemade and is honestly just as good,” she said. We’re proud of this one: 230 calories, six gram of net carbs and 21 grams of protein all delivered in one flavorful package.
We know. You miss spaghetti. But here’s some good news: Spaghetti can be easily replaced with spaghetti squash, zucchini ribbons or spiralized onions. You can’t substitute much for meaty, hearty meatballs, which means you’ve got the best end of the deal. Go ahead: Celebrate with a garnish of Parmesan cheese. (It’s approved and can be a delicious topping for many of our dinners!)
What’s that? You’re craving Thanksgiving dinner? We bring you turkey, gravy and tender green beans. Craving pumpkin pie? Mix a little unsweetened pumpkin puree with a half cup Greek yogurt and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice. Sweeten with a little stevia. Craving satiated.
Soup is simple, satisfying and South Beach Diet-approved. This creamy, dreamy dinner is a homemade classic made easy. Mushrooms, Parmesan cheese, butter, heavy cream and garlic add a rich, earthy flavor that pairs perfectly with tender chicken. Try serving it with a side salad, steamed collards or riced cauliflower.
“I would buy this product again…extras even,” says a five-star online review. “This is really flavorful. The steak is tender and the asparagus is just crisp enough.” The flavor comes from onions, paprika, mushrooms and butter, plus a steak sauce made with raisins, crushed oranges, garlic and tomatoes. Oh—and then there’s the tender steak and crisp asparagus, of course!
On an ordinary diet, sausage would be far, far away from your “approved” foods list. However, on the South Beach Diet, this comfort food is encouraged. Instead of the bun, serve our Italian-Style Sausage and Peppers over spaghetti squash, make a lettuce wrap or enjoy it all on its own.
Chicken and veggies is the truly the perfect combination. But when you’ve worked all day and just want to eat a quick meal, cooking up a complicated dinner is the last thing you want to do. Instead, consider stocking up on Chicken and Veggies from the South Beach Diet meal delivery service. It features tender, baked chicken and a blend of roasted peppers, broccoli and edamame. We serve it all with riced cauliflower and our delicious bourbon-flavored sauce. Now that’s dinner made easy!
Enjoy the taste of a homemade meal in an easy-to-prepare package. Our Home-style Creamy Cauliflower and Chicken features all of the comfort food flavors from your childhood. Plus, it contains just 10 grams of net carbs, 230 calories and a whopping 19 grams of protein.
