Introduction

It's been said over and over: We're overworked, overstressed, and overbooked. But the fact is that somewhere between office work and homework, cleaning and carpooling, running errands and running a house, you have to eat. Add a family into this chaotic equation and what's a stressed-out wife and mother to do?

Call for take-out.

Recent statistics confirm that ordering out is our generation's way of resolving the daily "What's for dinner?" dilemma. You've also probably noticed that it's possible to walk out of your local market with a fully cooked fresh dinner. Rotisserie chicken or sushi, anyone?

Yet the obvious question arises: How does all this taking out to eat in fit into your life if you're trying to lose weight? Most likely, not very well. It's no secret that whether it's take-out from your local Chinese hangout, the fancy gourmet market, or your town's new Mexican restaurant, portions, fat content, and calorie count of these speedy dishes are, in a word, big.

Welcome to Take-Out Tonight! 150+ Restaurant Favorites to
Make at Home.
We've re-created and reinterpreted you and your family's tasty take-out favorites, keeping fat, calories, and POINTS in mind so that when the craving hits for peanutty sesame noodles, creamy cannolis, filling fajitas, or tasty nachos, you can indulge in your favorites — guiltlessly.

Our luscious recipes focus on big flavors and feature ingredients that may be new to your cooking repertoire. That's why we've included plenty of helpful hints, as well as listings of the items you'll need to make your kitchen the perfect pantry for creating these delicious dishes at home.
