Dieting does not necessarily mean the fun is over....

I am on the South Beach Diet and it is easy to think the party is over: no more nice cocktails, no more pasta or bread or pizza. None of the things which are the reasons that I am on the South Beach Diet in the first place.

However, the party is not over. How good is it to just detox a bit and free your body from all of this for two weeks. I will be trying to modify the recipes of the South Beach Diet and give them a Middle Eastern flavor.

So since you have eggs or eggs beaters for breakfast every day in this two-week, phase-one diet, adding the Middle Eastern touch makes all the difference.

  • 2 mushrooms
  • a couple of slices of red onion
  • Hand full of shredded low fat mozzarella
  • As much as you can take chopped fresh parsley-- I like a handful.
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Heat up your non-stick pan and add olive oil.
  • Break the eggs and let them cook till they sit well and you are able to flip them.
  • Before the flipping action, add your vegetables and your spices. Let it cook for 45 secs.
  • Flip your eggs and add your cheese and let it cook for another minute.
  • Sahtain! (double health in Arabic)
