About the Book

What’s for dinner? This is a question that we all must answer every single day. When you’re trying to eat healthy, want something fresh and different every night, have a family to feed, and want to avoid spending hours in the kitchen or hundreds on takeout, this question gets a lot harder to answer.

For a long time, I prepared my meals every Sunday. While this was an effective way to ensure that I had healthy meals ready when I needed to eat, it wasn’t ideal. For me, the process was time consuming.  I didn’t really look forward to the meals  (hello grilled chicken and soggy broccoli).  And, by Tuesday, no one in the house (including me) wanted what I had prepped. At some point, my desire to have a variety of tasty, Figure Friendly meals each day led me to become “The Queen of Takeout”. I mastered Figure Friendly ordering. We had different, delicious meals each day. Everyone was happy… until I got really tired of spending so much money on meals that I KNEW I could make myself. There was one small dilemma though… I STILL didn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen.

Figure Friendly Meals in Minutes is the ultimate answer to the “what’s for dinner dilemma”. It is the collection of strategies, kitchen tools, spices, and recipes that I’ve used to satisfy my comprehensive wish for dinner time. It will enable you to prepare delicious, restaurant style,Figure Friendly meals for your family each day in ten minutes or less.
