Hungry Girl is SMART!

I hadn’t heard of The Hungry Girl until today. She was on Racheal Ray. Basically, her name is Lisa Lillien and she learned how to manage her weight by creating yummy foods with the RIGHT ingredients. She figured out what can be substituted but still taste just as good.

On Racheal Ray today, The Hungry Girl did a supermarket ambush. She found people who had high fat and high calorie foods and told them better alternatives. I thought it was pretty interesting. I’m pretty good and checking my labels although I like to find out about alternatives that still taste good or the same.

Here is a link to a video clip when she was on Racheal Ray though it is not the episode from today. The HG has a new book out called “Hungry Girl 200 Recipes Under 200 Calories”…. Brilliant! Racheal went over some recipes with her and they all looked and sounded yummy! I think I will be buying the book!

This was her first book….

Here is the Hungry-Girl’s website. It is pretty cute!

A good example that she gave today was on butter. She said the best butter substitute was Brummel & Brown. She said it has half the fat and what not as butter but still the great flavor. It’s butter blended with yogurt. It has no cholesterol.

I have Brummel & Brown before. They have delicious strawberry spread. I LOVE it!

I like finding new cookbooks and recipes!

    I got her cookbook a couple months ago and I LOVE it! In fact, I just made her red velvet cupcakes last weekend and blogged about it the other day. Her book is pretty cheap on Amazon, or you can sign up for her emails too – she sends out a lot of good recipes in those.

    I love hungry girl! On her website you can actually sign up for daily emails and she tells you about new foods etc. Each day is different. I've been getting the emails for a couple of years now and I love them!
