It’s been a while, but I’m back now with some more obvious advice for those who avoid the kitchen as much as I do. I recently picked up a bag of frozen vegetable dumplings from a market on our street. (You can choose chicken or pork if you’re not vegetarian.) They’re simply delicious – low in calories (steam, don’t fry them), but a filling snack or rice replacement to accompany a stir-fry if you’re trying to keep the carbs down. They’re done in only 10 minutes. Save those left-over soy sauce packets whenever you order Chinese food, and you’re set.
