Hungry-Girl



Ok, so it is official. I am a Hungry-Girl. I saw this cookbook on my swap partner Janna’s blog. You can check her out at http://happinessisajourneyforjanna.blogspot.com. I immediately went out on Saturday and got this cookbook, looked through it, planned my meals for the week, and made my grocery list. I like this book because there are some really good recipes in there and it’s all stuff I can make for my whole family. I don’t have to cook two separate meals. So just to give an update I have tried 3 of the recipes and I really liked them all. This feels like something I can maintain. Here is a little about the recipes I tried:

•Spinach, Tomato, Feta n’ Egg Wrap Attack – now I did not actually put the tomatoes in there so it was just the egg, spinach, and feta with the wrap. My hubby and I had it for lunch yesterday. It was very good and actually filling. Calories - 168

•So Low Mein with Chicken – Ok this was fantastic. The whole family loved it. I was quite surprised because the noodles are tofu noodles. They were great. My daughter confessed that she loved them. It felt like a light dinner but at the same time it was filling and it only had 167 calories!

•Cinnamon Vanilla French Toast Nuggets – now this was interesting. These are made with hotdog buns. I have to say they were also pretty good. Makes me excited that I can still eat some of the things that I love. This is a very simple recipe. Calories – 151

So you should all take a look at this cookbook. They have teamed up with Weight Watchers and you can find the points for all the recipes online. Honestly I think it is amazing how low-cal these are!
