Contributed by: NAPSA

(NAPSA) - Millions of Americans are looking for ways to turn their traditional barbeque into a low-carbeque. With the growing interest in a low-carb lifestyle, many people are saying goodbye to hamburger buns and embracing low-carb options such as lettuce wraps.

Fortunately, cutting carbs doesn't mean you have to sacrifice taste. Coors had this in mind when creating Aspen Edge, its new low-carb lager for carb-conscious beer lovers who still want real beer taste. The following low-carb recipes use the beer to create tasty low-carb marinades.

So eat, drink and be merry; you're not just're low-carbequing.
