15 Minute Fat Free Couscous Recipe


You’re on the way home after a long day at work. You’re tired. All you want to do is get home, kick off your shoes, grab a cup of your favorite tea, stretch your legs out and go brain dead…for at least a few minutes.

Then the panic sets in–you’ve got nothing to eat! You’ve got nothing healthy to feed your family.  Now you’re feeling terrible, yet, you’re so tired that you can barely think about anything, including a healthy meal for your munchkins.

Fast food is out of the question, because you know better, and because it’s really not that fast–you will be sitting in the drive-through line for a long time along with every other energy drained parent, burning up your gas and your time.

But there’s fast food that is faster than the fast food (cue up angelic music)–my 15 Minute Fat Free Couscous Recipe that’s not only delicious and quick to make, but it’s also good for your health and kind to your hips. It’s the kind of food that makes you feel like a super-mom and a chef, rather than a tired failure. Read More
