Heather Getz says:
Do many of the recipes call for "low fat" and "fat-free" versions of dairy products, salad dressings, etc.? I know Weight Watchers recipes definitely do. What you're missing in the fat and calories, you're making up for (not in a good way), by adding in the artificial ingredients that are put in "low fat" and "fat-free" products. A little more fat and calories, when natural, is MUCH better for you than these "synthesized" products. I'm wondering about these recipes, and probably may not buy the book(s) if this is the case. I can and often try to keep things lower fat/calories, but substitute natural ingredients whenever possible.

Heather, you make an excellent point. I hope someone who uses Hungry Girl's recipes can provide an answer.

Do they include the number of points for each recipe?
