Add a little cheese and tomato to the black beans for a Mexican flair. Many veggies make a great snack when eaten cool or at room temperature, and this may be a more convenient option for work days. Chop up your choice of broccoli, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, mushrooms or zucchini, and carry the vegetables along in a small baggie or a plastic container.

A glass of vegetable juice is another snack option for phase 1. Nuts also are allowed as a snack in phase 1 of the South Beach Diet.
