“Hasty Tasty Low Carb Dinners – Low Carb Recipes for People On-The-Go”

 

 

 

 

 

Through the many ups and downs of dieting in my adult years, I learned the health benefit as well as the weight benefit of a low carb diet.  Since much has been written about the value of reducing carbohydrates in ones diet, I will simply say that this collection of low carb recipes is presented to the people who have already discovered this life-changing reality.

 

My challenge has always been one of time.  My busy schedule prevented me from preparing low carb meals on a regular basis so it became imperative that I find a collection of recipes that could be made ahead or in a very short time.  When I made healthy snacks and meals that could be kept on hand, I was less likely to grab the unhealthy and fat producing snacks so easily obtained.  It was also necessary for me to provide snacks and meals that would be accepted and enjoyed by my family.  Since they turn away from the natural “health food” type foods I enjoy, my search results demanded low carb recipes for low carb snacks and healthy snacks that were tasty as well as easy to prepare.

 

Searching the internet and cookbooks for recipes that met this requirement robbed me of the time that was in such short supply.  It occurred to me that many of you had this same challenge.  This book is meant to assist you in your continued commitment to living a low carb diet, eating healthy snacks, preparing very delicious and tasty low carb recipes that could be made easily and quickly yet result in dishes that the whole family would love.

 

Some of my favorites are the Sausage Jalapenos, South Sea Island Chicken Bites, Kabobs Antipasto, and the Crustless Cheese Quiches.

 

With all this in mind, please enjoy these recipes as well as the other cookbooks I have published for you.

 

Get skinny.  Stay skinny.
