Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this congenial compilation … [Lillien] gives dieters a breakfast-to-dinner approach to eating lighter with scores of easy to prepare dishes.”

Publishers Weekly

“Packed with sneaky tricks like using light bread for sandwiches, replacing potatoes with butternut squash, baking with pureed pumpkin rather than oil or eggs, "The Hungry Girl" is fun and healthy!”

DietsinReview.com

Library Journal

Lillien started her web site, www.hungry-girl.com, in 2003, and she now has close to 400,000 subscribers to her free daily e-newsletter. She doesn't have a food background but describes herself as a "foodologist," someone who is "obsessed with foods that taste great but don't pack on the pounds." Like the newsletter, the book includes recipes, food and nutrition factoids, and "Hungry Girl Hints" and other strategies. The recipes rely heavily on low-fat, low-calorie products and other convenience foods-'Kickin' Chicken Pot Pie, for example, is made with frozen mixed vegetables, fat-free cream of celery soup, reduced-fat biscuit dough, and chicken (that's it). Whether they taste great is debatable, but many of the soups, salads, and main courses are very high in sodium. Nevertheless, Hungry Girl has many fans, and there is sure to be demand.

Recipe

Eggs Bene-chick
PER SERVING (entire recipe): 183 calories, 8g fat, 627mg sodium, 16g carbs, 3g fiber, 3g sugars, 13g protein

Ingredients:
1/2 light English muffin
1 large egg
1 slice extra lean ham
1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Hellmann's/Best Foods Dijonnaise
1 teaspoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread; softened
1 teaspoon yogurt, lemon (or plain yogurt with a squirt of lemon juice)

Directions:

To make sauce, combine mayo, Dijonnaise, butter and yogurt. Set aside.

Crack egg gently into a small cup or dish, and set that aside as well.

Fill a medium-sized pot with 2 inches of water, and bring water to a boil. Once boiling, lower temperature until a steady and consistent (but VERY low) boil is reached.

Gently pour the egg into the pot, and allow it to cook for 3-5 minutes (3 for a runnier egg, 5 for a very firm one), or until egg white is mostly opaque. Carefully remove egg by sliding a spatula underneath it and placing it on a plate. Use a paper towel to soak up any excess water.

Heat ham and muffin (toast muffin if desired).

Heat sauce in the microwave for approximately 20 seconds, and give it a stir (add more water if you prefer a thinner sauce). Top muffin with ham and egg, and then cover with sauce.

MAKES 1 SERVING

For years I avoided Eggs Benedict because it's LOADED with fat and calories. This recipe was created out of sheer necessity (or should I say desperation?).

Ooey Gooey Chili Cheese Nachos
PER SERVING (1/6th of recipe): 216 calories, 3.5g fat, 776mg sodium, 37g carbs, 4g fiber, 4g sugars, 12g protein

Ingredients:
1 7-ouncebag baked tortilla chips
1 cup low-fat turkey or veggie chili
3/4 cup salsa
1/2 cup light soymilk
3 ounces fat-free block cheddar cheese
1 wedge The Laughing Cow cheese, Light Original Swiss
2 tablespoons fat-free cream cheese
2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream

Directions:

Place all three cheeses in a saucepan with the soymilk. Heat over low heat, stirring occasionally. Continue until all cheeses have melted, and your cheese sauce is thoroughly mixed and hot.

Prepare chili according to package directions. Microwave chips in a bowl until warm, and then spread them out on a large platter.

Pour your cheese sauce over the chips. Top with chili. Spoon salsa and sour cream on top, and voila, your nachos are ready!

MAKES 6 SERVINGS

These nachos are soooo good. And the cheese sauce can be used in tons of other recipes, too. Don't forget that!

Awesome Whopper Stopper
PER SERVING (1 sandwich): 254 calories, 2.5g fat, 1,401mg sodium, 40g carbs, 6g fiber, 12g sugars, 22g protein

1 Boca Meatless Burger, Original
1 slice fat-free American cheese
3 slices/chips dill pickle
1 slice tomato
1 leaf romaine lettuce
1 slice onion
1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon ketchup

Directions:

Prepare patty per package instructions (using nonstick spray or nothing at all). Toast bun, if desired.

Place patty on the bun's bottom half, and then top with cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce and pickles.

On the top half of the bun, smear on mayo and ketchup. Put two halves together and enjoy!

MAKES 1 SERVING

Death by Chocolate Cupcakes
PER SERVING (1 cupcake): 108 calories, 2.5g fat, 239mg sodium, 19g carbs, 1g fiber, 12g sugars, 2g protein

2 cups moist-style chocolate cake mix (1/2 of an 18.25-ounce box)
2 25-calorie packets diet hot cocoa mix
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
2 tablespoons semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1 teaspoon Splenda No Calorie Sweetener, granulated
1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Place chocolate chips and the contents of both cocoa packets in a tall glass. Add 12 ounces of boiling water, and stir until chips and cocoa mix have dissolved. Place glass in the freezer to chill for 25 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Once cocoa has chilled, give it a stir, and mix with all other ingredients in a mixing bowl. Whip batter with a whisk or fork for 2 minutes.

Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick spray, or line it with baking cups. Evenly spoon batter (which will be thin, but don't worry, your cupcakes will puff up!) into the pan. Place pan in the oven, and bake for 15 minutes. Cupcakes will look shiny when done.

MAKES 12 SERVINGS

Super-Skinny Skins
PER SERVING (4 pieces): 155 calories, 1g fat, 372mg sodium, 30g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 8g protein

1/2 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

Pierce potatoes several times with a fork. Place potatoes on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave for 4 minutes.

Turn potatoes over, and return them to microwave for 4 more minutes. Allow them to cool for a few minutes.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise. Using a fork, gently scrape out the bulk of the flesh. Place the empty potato shells on a baking dish spritzed with nonstick spray. Place dish in the oven, and cook for 8-10 minutes, depending on how crispy you like your potato skins.

Evenly distribute cheese and bacon bits on top of potato skins. Return skins to the oven until the cheese has melted.

Cut each potato skin in half. If desired, top with scallions, and serve with sour cream and/or salsa.

1/2 cup chopped iceberg lettuce
2 tablespoons shredded fat-free cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese
salt and pepper; to taste
Optional: fat-free sour cream, salsa, cilantro

Directions:

Spray a pan with nonstick spray, and set stove to medium heat. Cook onion slices in the pan for 2 minutes.

Add pepper slices to the pan, and continue to cook for an additional 2 minutes (veggies should still be a little crisp). Remove veggies from the pan, and place them in a bowl.

Cook chicken strips in the pan until cooked throughout, and then add them to the bowl with the onions and peppers.

Heat tortillas in the pan for 20 seconds on each side. Remove and plate tortillas.

Season the onions, peppers, and chicken to taste with salt and pepper, and then place them evenly into the center of each tortilla.

Place one slice of avocado on each tortilla. Finish by topping with lettuce and cheese. If desired, add optional ingredients. Roll 'em up and enjoy!

Use a sharp knife to remove both ends of the squash. Peel squash and cut into large chunks (removing seeds).

Fill a large, microwave-safe dish with a half-inch of water. Place squash into the dish, and cover. Microwave for approximately 8 minutes, and then drain (squash should be tender enough to mash, but not overcooked).

With a potato masher, food processor or fork, mash squash thoroughly. Measure out 2 generous cups, lightly packed, and place in a baking dish.

Add all ingredients except for marshmallows to the dish. Mix ingredients thoroughly, but do not over-stir (squash should still be pulpy). Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes (until solid and not liquid-y).

Top the "pie" with mini marshmallows. Return to the oven for 5 minutes, or until marshmallows begin to brown. Allow to cool before serving.

    Fun Cook Book

    This is a fun and informative cook book. When I want a change in my diet or feel the need to cheat, without paying a price for it, I use this book. I have tried a few recipes from each section and they are all delicious. My families current favorite is the egg burrito. All the recipes are quick and most have easy to find ingredients. I would recommend this book.

    Fun, common-sense way to reduce calories

    Hungry Girl, based on the website of the same name, compiles common-sense approaches to cutting fat and calories through smart substitutions. Useful sidebars offer comparisons of similar commercial fast-food versions showing fat and calories. <BR/><BR/>In the beginning, Hungry Girl (Lisa Lillien) offers up a useful list of recommended products designed to save fat/calories, including light soymilks, numerous fat-free products, and light bread products. She also includes Top ATE kitchen essentials (measuring cups, blender, etc.). Beginning with breakfast, HG offers up low-fat versions of Egg McMuffins (184 cal, 2g fat), burritos (239 cal, 3g fat), French toast (195 cal, 1g fat), smoothies and oatmeal (with pumpkin and cinnamon...yum!). <BR/><BR/>Other chapters embrace salads, soups, pastas, Guy Foods, desserts, and holiday dishes. Normally gut-busting items like chili dogs (109 cal, 1g fat), onion rings (153 cal, 1g fat), spicy crispy chicken sandwich (313 cal, 4.5 g fat), eggnog (98 cal, 2g fat), mint mocha freeze (55 cal, 0.5 g fat), and more are given low-fat makeovers courtesy of secret ingredients such as Eggbeaters, Fiber One bran cereal, and fat-free swaps like fat-free cheese, fat-free sour cream, etc. Cute drawings spice up the chapters. <BR/><BR/>Generally, the recipes are nutritionally sound and easy to prepare, but a word of warning: low-fat and fat-free products are plumped up with sodium, so the sodium counts are *insanely* high for many items (upwards of a day's worth of sodium in a single recipe), and excess sodium consumption can result in water retention, bloating, and high blood pressure. Also, the numerous sugar-free products such as sweeteners and sugar-free mixes can cause a laxative effect in sensitive people. <BR/><BR/>Also, the chapter on low-cal alcoholic beverages is suspect, since a recent study showed that mixing alcohol with diet sodas actually resulted in becoming intoxicated more quickly (21 minutes for absorption of diet soda mix versus 36 minutes for regular soda and alcohol). Of course, if you do choose to drink (these recipes can be made virgin), it's always a good idea to eat something first, which slows absorption into the bloodstream. <BR/><BR/>But for stressed-out working moms (and dads), Hungry Girl offers many palatable swaps of popular food from major chains that are markedly lower in calories, fat, and sugar, including kid-friendly recipes, that may be a good way for families to eat more healthfully.

I also like how it is only one serving and you can double or triple it however you like. I joined her email listing and really like the info she sends along with her witty writing style. Great Job!

    Helpful Strategies

    Lisa Lillien's cookbooks get better with each new one. This, I think maybe her first, uses unusual ingredients in unusual combinations to achieve healthy, low-fat, low calorie foods that actually taste good. Since many of her recipes are for one person, it makes it easy when only one person in the house is "eating light". On the other hand, these dishes are so good that almost anyone would enjoy them. She includes strategies for surviving in a world where unhealthy foods in huge quantities have become the norm.

    Great for singles!

    I cook by myself all the time since I'm single and my roommate and I are on different schedules. This cookbook is full of simple, healthy recipes that use ingredients I keep on hand or can easily find in our local grocery store. I looked at this book at our local library and liked so many recipes that I couldn't resist buying it because I wanted to be able to always have it on hand!

    Wonderful Tool for Cutting Calories from your diet.

    i was given this cookbook by a friend after i joined Weight Watcher's last spring. The recipes are easy to follow, healthy, and delicious. I have shared these with friends and family. I am employed by a family as their personal cook and use many of these recipes when i cook for them. We allllll love that we are eating healthy. I have lost 40 lbs, dropped 5 dress sizes and am healthier than I have been in 15 years. it is easy to adapt old recipes following the tips in the book. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone wanting to eat healthier and more sensibly. i have pre-purchased the new Hungry Girl Cookbook scheduled for release in march for myself and am sending a niece two of the Hungry Girl Cookbooks to add to her collection.

    Entertaining and informative. Inspires cooking adventures

    I enjoyed just thumbing through the book and reading about the different products, the different uses for food products that I had not thought of. I appreciate the list of favorite food items to have on hand and still need to go shopping with that list. Look forward to using the cookbook soon.

    Great Food for Everyone!

    This is an excellent cookbook! No matter how much experience you have in the kitchen, not only will you enjoy making the recipes but you will also enjoy EATING them. I have thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I'm no longer afraid of cooking my own food. One of my favorites is the chicken pot pie, with under 250 calories per serving. The calorie count and nutritional information are helpful for planning your meals. I wish that there was a volume two!

    This is a keeper!

    HG Recipe Book just OK

    I was a little disappointed with this book. I would have liked to see more illustrations/pictures. The recipes are practical, but the few I've tried so far ( and I know they're low calorie dishes) still need additional help in the seasoning department. I typically try it their way the first time to see if I need to add anything the next time. So far I've had to add something to everything I've tried the second time. I don't believe this is for a novice cook.

    It's title could be Eat Non-Fat No-Sugar Food

    The idea behind the book is good. The execution is not so good. Basically, the author suggests you use only non-fat and no-sugar products in place of regular food. If you are used to eating normal food, the processed foods she suggested are quite lacking.

    Who are you kidding

    I bought this book and tried some recipes. I made the butternut squash fries. I love squash, but I think next time I can bake my potatoes in the oven for the same calories. I tried the fried onion rings. GROSS! It taste like cardboard box. Sorry but I can make low-fat foods taste better than these recipes. No wonder this book is call Hungry girl, you stay hungry after you try it. I do have to give her thanks for her effort.

    Good Idea but not Good Food

    I tried making the peanut butter fudge recipe on page 171 and it was simply awful. I couldn't even feed it to my 19 year old brother. The only thing I can recommend to fix it would be to mix more peanut butter with the whole recipe so it's more of a peanut butter chocolate marble fudge, but then it isn't low calorie anymore. Not worth the $20.

    The recipe for Dan Good Chili is the best low-fat chili my husband and I have tried thus far. This recipe alone is worth the price of the book to me.

    One word: Repulsive.

    All of the recipies I've made form this book taste disgusting. The food looks good in the book but it tastes so bad. A lot of the recipes call for fake sweeteners which is utterly unhealthy, so if you're trying to lose weight healthily, this is NOT the book for you.
