Yikes! It’s 6:30 p.m., and you’ve just walked through the door after a long day at work, plus a couple of errands. You’re tired, you’re hungry — and before you can get your coat off, the family has started asking, “What’s for dinner?” In the past, you would have started water boiling for some quick mac-and-cheese, or warmed up a frozen pizza. But now you’re low-carbing, and hungry and busy though you may be, you really don’t want to trade your weight loss, high energy, and improved health for a quick-and-carb-y supper. After all, when you’re running a killer schedule, you don’t need food that will make you feel fat, sluggish, and guilty! What, oh what, to do? Relax! No, really, sit down, relax, take a deep breath, and flip through 15-Minute Low-Carb Recipes. You’ll find dozens of wonderful family dishes that take no more than fifteen minutes to make, prep time included. You’ll even find stuff you’d be happy to serve to company, should you be so brave as to invite people over on a weeknight! And much, much more — all with the carbohydrate, fiber, and usable carb counts already calculated for you. What could be easier?
