Culture & Criticism Since 2003
Many people claim they put on the pounds because it takes too much to cook healthy at home. While the premise may sound plausible at first, the argument quickly falters: Basically, a lack of discipline and the crutch of a “heavy schedule” have made it easy to rationalize pizza and fried chicken take-out for dinner. But if your schedule is really what’s keeping you from rekindling a relationship with the kitchen, then Weight Watchers Cook It Fast is your answer. Just released, this cookbook offers easy-to-follow recipes that can be completed in 15 to 30 minutes. Weight Watchers Cook It Fast offers a sampling of dishes from myriad cuisines; recipes for lunch, dinner, desserts, sides and snacks are included. Highlights include the roast halibut with roasted pepper sauce, the chicken in coconut curry sauce and the fillet Mignon with tomato-bean salsa. Anyone who purchases the book will be eligible to receive a complimentary 1-year subscription to Weight Watchers Magazine as well. Check out the last page of the book for details.
