The key to 20 minute cooking is to delegate the work. It's just like what happens at your work - the reason so much gets done quickly is because no one, these days on their own, does a whole project from start to finish. Parts of the project are delegated to those most skilled or most cost efficient. Delegation results in a final product created faster.

It's exactly the same in the kitchen. Learn how to cook with your oven and slow cooker  - delegate the cooking to these invaluable pieces of equipment. All you have to do is marinade and put together the flavors, bung it in and let the equipment do the work.

...and all it takes to create a healthy meal is less than 20 minutes HANDS-ON time.

Short cuts free you to do all the other important work that simply must get done.
