HG goes aisle by aisle, food by food and explains in a paragraph or more why she recommends a particular brand or type of food. Let's start with the first section which is all about Dairy products. She explains the difference between reduced fat, low fat and no fat cheeses, milk and yogurts and offers the top HG recommendations for which ones to buy. She also covers pudding desserts and dessert toppings in this section.
The grocery aisle sections are as follows:
Meat and Seafood
Frozen Meals and Meal Starters
Ice Cream and Frozen Desserts
Sauces, Salad Dressing and Shelf Stable Condiments
Baking Products, Pantry Staples, Spices and more
In the back of the book there are a few more sections that are typical HG recommendations:
HG Top Ate Items worth ordering online
Complete HG Supermarket List
Thankfully the book has an index so you can easily find any food item you want to read about. If you have followed her newsletters religiously and watched her show - especially the section when she is walking the grocery store, then you have seen it all before.
I recommend this book for die hard HG recipe lovers who like all their HG tips and tricks neatly packed into one book.
I love this book for many reason, but mostly:
1) Broken down into easy to read, and easily marked categories so that you can find exactly what you're looking for - simplicity at it's best!
2) So many fantastic alternative items listed in case you have particular taste like myself.....she suggests so many options not just "stick to this or else" mentality which throws us all off our our diets to begin with....you need variety!
3) Tips for helping make your meals taste exactly like their counterparts which are loaded with fats! Too many foods that are good for you lack taste....not with HG!!
4) My favorite is that she points out the "all star" for each category which will be the most tasteful, yet the best for you........most books which are trying to teach you proper eating habits don't consider the taste of the things they suggest, they merely look at the labels (so what if you're eating cardboard, there's Zero calories!)
Overall I can't wait to try out all the goodies in this book! I'm calling my copy the Bigger Girl's Bible =
Wish me Luck!!
The book is beautiful, easy to read, very colorful and full of humor. She is just like one of us, loves to eat, fascinated with food, but aims on keeping a healthy lifestyle. I love how she understands that EVERYONE is tempted by guilty foods. Not only does she give great swaps and healthy options, but she also provides the best brand and the ease of where to get the items. There's meal ideas on almost every page. LOVE the veggie/fruit A-Z guide.
Note to fellow HG fans: A lot of the stuff in the book you already know. She recommends a lot of the same brands/products she has been for years (Tofu Shirataki, Libby's Pumpkin, Laughing Cow, etc) but if you know somebody who is trying out a healthy lifestyle and doesn't know where to start, this book is it. Lisa is so down to earth and doesn't throw crazy stats in your face. Everything is easy to find and very well organized. I learned a lot about the foods I shop for everyday (peas swapping in for avocado in guacomole? Brilliant! Reduced-fat and low-fat not the same thing? Who knew?) Great addition to the HG line. Looking forward to more recipes and books from her!!
