Hint: Getting these meals on your table is as easy as clicking their names!
Get all the savory tomato sauce and Parmesan cheese of your favorite Italian dish with this entrée that dishes out a whopping 21 grams of protein and a mere 11 grams of carbohydrates. Paired with sauteed green beans, this skinnier take on a comfort food classic tastes like a juicy chicken entree from the kitchen of an Italian chef. It’s no wonder it tops Jessie’s list of favorite South Beach Diet entrees! Get this dinner here >
Mexican food is popular for a reason. Always exciting with spices and filling with protein from beans, there’s almost no way to get bored of it! Jessie loves the South Beach Diet Chipotle Black Bean Bowl, and we totally get it. This dinner is Mexican fare redesigned. So long unhealthy fats and body-slowing carbs. Rice is replaced with wild rice and quinoa, the high-protein whole grain touted by nutritionists and personal trainers alike. This meal is filled with kale, zucchini and sweet, nutrient-dense bell peppers. No meat involved and yet the Chipotle Black Bean Bowl packs in a powerful 15 grams of protein and ensures long-lasting satisfaction with eight grams of fiber. Get this dinner here >
Shredding pounds doesn’t always mean sacrifice. Jessie James Decker counts on this Rustic Eggplant Lasagna when she feels a serious craving for the Italian favorite coming on. Roasted eggplant is paired with grilled red pepper, onion and squash and doused in thick, Italian-spiced tomato sauce. And, how could we forget the creamy ricotta. It’s unreal that so much flavor could be packed into 150 calories and have just 16 carbs. It goes without saying, Jessie definitely gets her foodie fix with this bad boy. Get this dinner here >
It couldn’t be more obvious that Jessie is an Italian girl at heart when we bring up her next favorite dinner: Italian-Style Sausage & Peppers. When you think Italian sausage, chances are good you think of outrageous calorie counts and not-so-friendly fats. Luckily, the South Beach Diet has reinvented this traditionally greasy, belly-bursting meal. Lean chicken sausage, bright bell peppers and onions cooked in mouthwatering tomato sauce make for a guilt-free dish you’ll want over and over. And there’s great news: If you’re on the South Beach Diet, this one can be enjoyed as early as Phase 1. You’ll get 10 percent of your daily iron and 100 percent satisfaction, just like Jessie.

Jessie loves the flavors in this tasty one-bowl meal. Thick cuts of tender beef are blended with vibrant broccoli, sugar snap peas and sesame-tamari sauce in this delicious dish that goes heavy on flavor… not on guilt! Every ingredient is as delectable as the last in the Sesame-Glazed Beef & Veggie Bowl. Jessie gets a boost of iron, vitamin C, calcium and vitamin A with this savory, satisfying dish. Just two grams of saturated fat in each serving? Now this is the way to enjoy beef. Click here to get the dinner >
