Hungry Girl,

I lost (misplaced) my copy of The Cheesecake Factory's menu with the calorie counts for everything. Can you help me?

Searching for Stats
Dear Searching,

YES! Of course I can help... While Cheesecake doesn't post stats on its website, you can download the nutritionals (as found in brochures displayed in locations where disclosure's required) by clicking here. And you can just browse through the info by clicking here. I have to warn you, it's not pretty. There are LOTS of insanely high-calorie items on the menu. In fact, most of the info is alarming. The good news is that we're putting together a helpful little "cheat sheet" survival guide for The Cheesecake Factory -- look for that email next month! It'll be a lot like the one we did for Outback Steakhouse a week or so ago. In the meantime, peruse those menu stats, and be CAREFUL! And check out these HG swaps: the Nice to See Ya! Quesadilla and our Ring-My-Bella Mushroom Sandwich. Yum!


New vegetarian here. College student. What are some HG-friendly snacks that are quick, filling, and meat-free?

Dear Snack-Happy,

Hi! There are MANY great snack options for vegetarians. In fact, with the exception of beef jerky (and I have a swap or two for that), most of my snack recommendations are veggie-friendly. Some of my favorite fast and filling treats are Fuji apples, VitaTops, light string cheese, and 100-calorie packs of almonds. I really like beef jerky as well as turkey and chicken jerky, but I LOOOOVE a few meat-free types of jerky, too. Check out Primal Strips -- they're made from mushrooms and soy protein and come in amazingly good flavors. Also find some Tasty Eats Soy Jerky, specifically the Hot N' Spicy flavor (which is actually more sweet than hot or spicy). Meatless jerky really is a great option for non-meat-eating HGers on the go -- it's low in calories, packed with protein, and easy to carry in your backpack or purse. Find it at health food stores and select grocery stores, like Whole Foods, or just order some online. Enjoy and happy snacking!!!

Today, January 27th, is Chocolate Cake Day. We've got SO many fantastic recipes, but the world's best way to party down on this day is with our Death by Chocolate Cupcakes. DO IT!
