|Green Tea Swappuccino ~ Another winner from the Hungry Girl cookbook. I love the fact that I can make this Starbucks version, at home, for a fraction of the calories & cost. I go a bit light on the green tea powder, depending on my mood & if I REALLY need more caffeine. :) Rock on, Hungry Girl!!|
I'm a Hungry Girl. I'm a Hungry Girl who likes to eat. I'm a Hungry Girl who has to watch her calorie intake. I'm a Hungry Girl who likes to make the recipes from the Hungry Girl cookbooks & Hungry Girl website.
Bacon 'n' Cheese Bell Pepper Skins ~ Fun with Bell Peppers - I made a bunch of low carb recipes from my Hungry Girl cookbook. The 'mock' potatoes skins, on the left, were really good. But what isn't good w/a little cheese, onion, bacon (bits) & sour cream (ok, yogurt). The 'pizza slices' on the right were good, too.
If you are already a Hungry Girl, you know what I'm talking about. If you are new to being a Hungry Girl, you are in for a treat (literally) & then some! As I was putting this post together, I went through my copy of ~ Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 ~ & found over 20 recipes that I have already made. (I put a happy, neutral or sad face in the Index to help me remember what I've tried & what I thought about it. High tech, no. Fun & silly, yes.) Many of them were made before I started photographing the things I've cooked, so now I have a lot of recipes to make again. :)
|PB & J Super Shake ~ This is another recipe from the Hungry Girl cookbook, tweaked a bit to use what I had on hand. J LOVED it! I used some of J's cereal, F/F milk, yogurt, a bit of jam/peanut butter & frozen strawberries. No need to buy something special if you don't have just what the recipe calls. Adopt, adapt & improve. We will make this again & again.|
|Bloomin' Onion - I made a bunch of low carb recipes from my Hungry Girl cookbook. This one uses Fiber One for the coating & you bake the onion, instead of frying. It was ok, but I would rather splurge & get the real thing once a year. |
So many low calorie ways to satisfy your hunger, I just love it. This is the one time being a Hungry Girl is a good thing!
