My favorite thing so far in this book is the cupcake lasagnas (see the picture I added under customer photos). I use low-fat rather than fat-free ricotta, a bit less mozzarella to offset that, and one real egg instead of egg substitute. I am fairly certain that with these changes this meal has no processed ingredients, and a delicious muffin-sized lasagna comes in at only 163 calories. And that's even with the little dollop of neufchatel that I hide in the center of each lasagna! At 163 calories you can eat 3 of these with no guilt and that's a LOT of food. This is just one example of a recipe that I never would have discovered without hungry girl!
I've also made several of the egg mugs and oatmeals in this book. In my egg mugs I use a real egg and then egg whites rather than egg substitute but these wonders still usually come in under 200 calories and are so filling. I had never heard of egg mugs before the book.
The desserts are also tasty, although these are one category where you'll need to get creative if you want to avoid processed ingredients. It's a fact of life that desserts tend to be bad for you, and she does a great job lightening them up without sacrificing taste.
In conclusion - I'm VERY happy with this book. I don't follow the recipes to the letter when I want to use more natural ingredients, but that's ok. A little imagination and it is a fabulous foundation for great meals.
I think between the books and the website we can have HUNGRY girl meal swaps between my mom and my two sisters (and even get my kids in on the act)
Thank you HUNGRY GIRL!!!!
-All the ingredients are so simple! Easy enough for a college student to find.
-Incredible variety. Don't like an entire section(such as tuna)? There are plenty more!
-Provides a good amount of substitution.
-List of the items she likes and uses, such as brands.
-The trios are fantastic! Three ingredients, a recipe that can stand on its own, or you can spice up.
-Doesn't have dessert! Of course it never said it did.
-The sodium can be high in some recipes.
Just a great book. My favorite part is how easy it is to substitute stuff. To the people that don't like using egg beaters or artificial sweeteners, just change it out! It'll change the fat/cal/etc. counts, but it won't be a very big deal.
