ASK HUNGRY GIRL
Hi Hungry Girl,
I have every single one of your books, and I love them! Is the new book, TO THE MAX!, just a collection of recipes from past books, or does it contain new recipes? Also, is it too late to get in on the free VitaPizzas promotion?
Curious to the Max
Hi Curious to the Max,
I'm so glad you love all the books! As for your first question, I've been getting this one a lot, and I'm happy to say that HUNGRY GIRL TO THE MAX! The Ultimate Guilt-Free Cookbook is definitely NOT just a collection of recipes from past books. Among the 650 recipes (yup, you read that right!), there are HUNDREDS of new ones. Yes, there are some recipes that have been published before -- any book called The Ultimate Guilt-Free Cookbook HAS to include the classics! And many of these iconic HG recipes have been updated. The ingredients called for in this book are easier than ever to find. Every single dessert recipe that calls for Splenda includes nutritional info if made with sugar instead, and vice versa! Plus, we developed dozens of all-new creations based on our most popular recipes -- there are 29 egg mugs, 19 growing oatmeal bowls, 38 faux-frys, 10 bake-tastic French fry recipes, 10 super-sized mac 'n cheese dishes, and so much more! It's truly a MUST-OWN book for any HG fan.
And there's DEFINITELY still time to get free VitaPizzas when you pre-order two copies of the book with our "Pre-Order 2 Copies of HUNGRY GIRL TO THE MAX!, Get 4 Free VitaPizzas!" promotion... There are PLENTY of free gifts up for grabs! I highly recommend pairing up with a friend for this promo -- you'll each get a copy of the new book at a great price (click around our pre-sale page to find the best deal... as much as 43 percent off!), plus two guilt-free pizzas (each!) at no cost. Can't beat THAT. If you want to pre-order only one copy, that's fine too! (You just won't get the free pizza.)
Thanks for emailing! Hope to see you on the HG book tour. (Click here for details!)
Fall is finally here, and that means many of my favorite seasonal treats are returning to coffee shops and restaurants! However, I know most of these goodies aren't guilt-free, and I'm trying to watch what I eat. Got any swaps?
Falling for Fall Flavors
Hi Falling for Fall Flavors,
There are SO many decadent and delicious treats that pop up this time of year. But you're right; many of these items have scary-high stats. Luckily, there are lots of HG swaps that allow you to indulge guilt-free! Check 'em out...
Pumpkin... If you're a sucker for pumpkin-flavored baked goods, check out this soft-cookie swap, this recipe for pumpkin bread, and these iced 'n spiced muffins! For a no-cook fix, order up some 100-calorie Pumpkin Spice VitaTops. (There's even an HG special featuring these Vitas happening right now!) If you crave freezy fall drinks, whip up this pumpkin shake or this pumpkin pie smoothie. Or keep things warm with our take on Starbucks' Pumpkin Spice Latte.
Caramel apple... Here's another famous fall flavor that people go nuts for. This HG parfait will obliterate a craving for the gooey fruit treat. These pancakes are like dessert for breakfast, and this super-easy Deconstructed Caramel-icious Candy Apple will rock your face off! (Careful. You need that for chewing!)
Hot chocolate... There are so many irresistible hot cocoa drinks in autumn, and you don't have to miss out. Click here for a s'mores-inspired cup of cocoa, click here for salted caramel hot chocolate, click here for our hazelnut-infused sipper, and (last but not least) click here for a mega-easy minty hot cocoa!
Still hungry? Here's a whole slew of fall dessert recipes. Now you've got plenty of swaps to get you through the next few months without going up a pants size. Enjoy!
