a tiny fraction of our audience receives our emails in text-only form, and the

Hungry Girl Today: 5.5.10
ASK HUNGRY GIRL
Dear Hungry Girl,
I'm going to Disney World in a few weeks, and I'm wondering if you have
any tips on eating there. As far as I know, the restaurants don't provide
nutritional information, so I am at a loss. Help! How do I not gain weight
while I'm there?
Dear Amusement Confusement,
You're not alone! Now that the warm weather is here, many of us will be
spending time at fairs and amusement parks, spots that can be pretty scary
when it comes to meals and snacks. I have a few rules for day trips to these
types of places...
1. Bring emergency snacks. These are things you can keep in your bag to
help you avoid eating the crazy-high-calorie snacks that pop up at parks. I
like to have sweet stuff, minty things, and protein-packed options handy:
Tootsie Pops, sugar-free hard candies, sugar-free mints, sugar-free gum,
jerky, light cheese snacks that don't need refrigeration, 100-calorie packs of
almonds -- all GREAT. Click here for a huge list of travel-friendly treats.
2. If you find yourself at the park without emergency snacks, seek out treats
that aren't too bad for you. At Disney, there are 100-calorie packs of Minnie
at any amusement park, you're better off with a few bites of cotton candy or
a soft pretzel than with greasy, fatty funnel cakes or churros!
3. Check out menus online ahead of time. Even if the restaurants don't have
nutritionals posted, you can usually find out what's on the menu before you
get there. Then at least you will be prepared for what to expect and can
make the best choices. In fact, check out this unofficial guide we found for
dining at Disney!
4. In general, when it comes to meals, stick with deli meats or grilled lean
protein (like chicken), rather than hot dogs, pizza, or hamburgers. And if
you're going for a salad, pay close attention to the dressing, 'cuz there's a
good chance it will have more calories than the salad itself! Your best bet
with salads is to order the dressing on the side, and then dip (don't pour!).

In one of your recent newsletters, you reviewed some new frozen meals. I
didn't print or save it, and I wish I still had it. Could you tell me how to
search for a particular newsletter on your website?
Dear Triple F,
I know the email you are referring to; it ran back in March. Here's a link to it.
But to answer your Q, all HG emails can be found at hungry-girl.com. If you
go to the search bar at the top of the homepage (above the SIGN UP NOW
button), you can enter any word or phrase you are looking for. Sometimes
this works like a charm, while other times it's less than helpful. Just being
honest, and we are working on it! If the HG search bar isn't giving you
results, go to Google and search "Hungry Girl" (in quotes) plus whatever
you're looking for; click here for an example. Another way to look for a past
email is to click on one of the main categories listed on the homepage,
like "News" or "Chew The Right Thing." Each of the categories pertains to a
different day of the week/content type. Once you click on one, you'll see all
of the past emails in that section, from the most recent to the oldest. Click
around; once you get the hang of it, it's easy! Every single daily email we've
ever sent is archived, so be prepared to spend a long time browsing around!
