The Hungry Girl just released Hungry Girl 1-2-3 and Hungry Girl Happy Hour, both of which feature new meals, snacks, desserts and of course cocktails, courtesy of the imaginative and calorie-conscious, Lisa Lillien.
If you love cheese, but hate the calories and fat that come with an ever-so-small creamy wedge of your favorite fromage, listen up.
This new food find from Laughing Cow will give all health-conscious cheese lovers a delish and low-cal reason to safely indulge.
The Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges have just come out with three more scrumptious low-calorie flavors: Blue Cheese, Mozzeralla Sun-Dried Tomato Basil and Queso Fresco Chipotle. Other Laughing Cow Light cheese wedge flavors include Creamy Swiss, Garlic and Herb and French Onion.
Each wedge contains a mere 35 calories, 1.5 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein, 0 carbohydrates and eight percent of your calcium needs. Their creamy texture gives them gold stars in the spreadability category and their compactness gets them an A+ in the healthy snack category.
Just hot off the health news press, Lisa Lillien, aka The Hungry Girl, will have her own television show on the newly launched Cooking Channel, which just premiered over the Memorial Day weekend, and was created by the makers of the Food Network.
Here’s a description of the new show from the Hungry Girl’s website:
“You’ll be getting 13 half-hour episodes of guilt-free fun and general HG madness! Not only will Lisa be whipping up recipes and sharing tips ‘n tricks in the kitchen, but she’ll also be out and about helping humans navigate the supermarket aisles, testing foods at the lab, and showing up in unexpected places to help solve the world’s fatty-food dilemmas.”
At DietsInReview.com, we love the Hungry Girl! We had a chance to interview Lisa Lillien, aka, the Hungry Girl about her new book, Hungry Girl 1-2-3. Here’s what she had to say about her latest creation.
The recipes in this book are even easier. And there’s more info – like prep time, cook time, etc. Also – while many recipes have less than 200 calories, a lot have more like 300 or more calories so there are more substantial recipes and meals in the book.
2.) Your creativity in pairing certain favorite foods really shines through in this cookbook. Can you highlight a few of your favorite “couples” and why they are so good and so good for you?
Hmmm… some of my favorite couples are Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges and Egg Beaters. Pretty much what I eat for breakfast every single day. Yum! Next, broccoli coleslaw and tomato soup (Amy’s Chunky Tomato Bisque). I stir-fry those together and it’s incredible. Tastes like pasta and sauce to me! Another great one is Vitalicious Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTop and a tablespoon of peanut butter. Crazy-delicious and satisfying for around 200 calories.
Vitalicious is a company that makes muffins, muffin tops, brownies, and cake mixes. And, the best part is that each yummy carb-y treat contains just 100 calories. But unlike many faux diet foods, Vitalicous contains only natural ingredients, including whole grain flour, organic sugar, egg whites, and cocoa. Even Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien, has given Vitalicious products her own Hungry Girl seal of approval.
Each Vitalicious treat is low fat, high in fiber (four to seven grams), trans-fat free, protein-packed (four to nine grams), cholesterol-free and low in sodium.
