Lime Cilantro Cabbage Rice Phase 2

I’m excited today to share my latest recipe Lime Cilantro Cabbage Rice Phase 2.  This cabbage rice recipe features the flavors of fresh lime and ginger creating a delicious and filling side dish for HCG Phase 2.  Top Lime Cilantro Cabbage Rice Phase 2 with 100 grams of chicken, shrimp, or steak to make a complete HCG Phase 2 entree.

I released my first Cabbage Rice recipe in the HCG Diet Gourmet Cookbook Vol. 1 nearly 9 years ago and the recipe has become a huge hit among low carb and HCG dieters.  In my cookbook, I share several ways to spice up and serve Cabbage Rice Phase 2, variations like Spanish cabbage rice and Asian fried cabbage rice.  Cabbage rice is highly versatile and can be seasoned a variety of different ways on HCG Phase 2 and can be easily tweaked and modified for HCG Phase 3 as well.
