South beach diet recipes

I'm thinking ahead to Jan. 2. I am not overweight but not at my happy weight. Too many sweets, too much wine, too much snacking, and too little control of my schedule (inlaw visits etc) have all contributed. So I want to spend a month getting the snacking and bad choices tamed. (I also will be giving up running in Jan. for other reasons so a focus on diet is key.) Last year we did a month of South Beach and both my DH and I saw results super quickly. Since I won't be running this year, I think it's a good way to go and won't be as difficult (it also helps us get in the habit of menu planning, shopping, and lunch bringing.)

SO ... any good recipes for lean meat and vegetable dishes? I love to cook and don't mind more complicated work if it means better flavors.
