ASK HUNGRY GIRL
What are the top three questions you are asked the most, and can you
please answer them?
Curious in Cali
It's funny that you asked that, because there are certain questions that
people send in DAILY. And it's a good idea to go over them every now and
then. Now would be one of those times...
1. First, people ask how they can get recipes and info from past emails. This
is one I answer regularly, but there are still people who don't realize that
every single HG email is archived at hungry-girl.com. Heads up: If you go
there, you might find yourself poking around for HOURS, just for fun. The
website's fully searchable (but the search feature can be a bit wonky and
sometimes gives you too many or too few results -- don't give up!). Click
here for more info on searching the HG site.
2. Next, people ask me (all the time!) what I eat on a regular basis. My quick
answer is to rattle off some of my staples, in no particular order -- Egg
Beaters (with Laughing Cow Light cheese wedges), lean turkey and chicken
breast (often over salad), sushi (with just a little rice), lots of fruits and
veggies (Fujis and broccoli cole slaw!!), VitaTops, low-calorie high-fiber
tortillas, and FRS Low Cal Concentrate... those are my go-to items.
3. And finally, another popular Q is, "Where can I find Tofu Shirataki
noodles?" -- that one pops up daily as well. If your store carries these super-
low-calorie noodles, they will NOT be housed with the regular pasta -- they'll
be with the tofu in the refrigerated section. Click here to see a fun little video
we just made about this. It'll really help. And if you're not sure which
markets carry them, click here.
Thanks for your Q!!!
Dear Hungry Girl,
One of my favorite appetizers is jalapeno poppers, which I'm sure must
contain a zillion calories. Do you have an HG version?
Yup! There certainly is an HG version. And it tastes AMAZING!!!! It's made
with jalapenos, fat-free cheeses, spices, and a Fiber One "breadcrumb"
coating. You can add as much or as little spice as you want, but I like to
make mine with lots of garlic powder and a nice amount of salt and pepper.
You're right about regular poppers being calorie-packed -- they're fried and
have about 300 calories and 20g fat for five of 'em (eeeks!). The HG-ized
ones have about 125 calories and 1g fat for the same serving size, and
they're packed with fiber. If you want to pig out on poppers and have TEN of
those suckers, it'll only set you back about 250 calories and 2g fat (POINTS®
value 4*). You can click here for the recipe. (It can also be found on page
146 of Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in
the Real World.) Then start poppin' those poppers right away!
