We Heart Hungry Girl!

You’ve heard of Hungry Girl, haven’t you? Not everyone has, but everyone should. Lisa Lillien (the HG) and her team have devised a gazillion ways to heat the stuff you love without it inducing a coronary. For those of you on Weight Watchers, she really helps you out by including the Points Plus totals on her recipes and other recommended noshes. I get her daily email blast, and although not all of it appeals to my gourmet side, a lot of it is totally doable — without giving up any taste. In fact, in some cases I think I liked her versions better! What really blew me away, though, was that the DH, the DS, and two of our friends (one who eats anything, and one who won’t touch any vegetation beyond corn and potatoes) scarfed all this stuff down right as it was coming out of the oven. Wish I had made more!

Now, I’ll be real: when I made these recipes, I used actual eggs, not Egg Beaters; some pan spray when it didn’t call for it; and splashes of olive oil in places where it usually shows up in a recipe, but didn’t in this one. With those caveats added in, the recipes were still far healthier than the originals she was replacing, and like I said before… tastier! Check out these three that we tried last night:

When I grow up, I'm gonna be fries!!!
