This is in no way a complete list, but it will give you some ideas and suggestions to jumpstart those New Year’s weight loss resolutions. The only off-the-wall ingredient that is in some of these recipes is flax seed, and I think most Wal-marts should carry that these days. Look in the flour isle or in the rice isle.
As you learn to eat healthy, you will begin to modify your favorite recipes to be healthier. Yes, it can be hard sometimes to eat healthy, but you can do it and it is so, so worth it! I chronicled My South Beach Diet Experience from two years ago earlier this week. Now, I’m starting it again : ) Just say “No!” to the bread machine!
This recipe has 1 Tablespoon of sugar. 1 Tablespoon spread out through all the cucumbers should be fine : )
(a variation we use: put jalapenos in the center, drizzle with lime juice and olive oil,
sprinkle with Tony Cachere’s Creole Seasoning. Hubby loves these!)

In addition to The South Beach Diet book, I would like to encourage you to check out Trim Healthy Mama. For me, combining information from both of these books was very helpful. I no longer use Splenda or any “sugar-free” supplement and neither does THM. They promote natural sweeteners.
