We're sharing an incredible, EXCLUSIVE recipe from the book right now, to give you an idea of the kind of satisfying meals featured in The Hungry Girl Diet. Get excited...
4 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
1/2 cup finely chopped brown mushrooms

2 corn taco shells (flat bottomed, if available)

2 tbsp. pico de gallo (or fresh salsa)
2 tsp. vinegar (balsamic, red wine, white wine, rice, or cider)
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add beef, mushrooms, and onion. Cook, stir, and crumble until beef is fully cooked and veggies have softened, about 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with taco seasoning, and continue to cook until any excess liquid has evaporated.
Evenly divide mixture between taco shells, and top with lettuce and pico de gallo.

Crunchy Beef Tacos, Average
What's Your Beef?
So here's the deal. The world is full of delicious foods that no one wants to live without... like tacos. And since tacos are relatively small (and un-smothered with melted cheese) compared with their cousins -- chimichangas, burritos, and enchiladas -- you might assume eating a couple of beef tacos would be a safe bet. Wrong-O, wishful thinker! Fatty meat plus frequently fried shells equals cuckoo nutritionals! Does this mean you're destined to a life without crunchy tacos crammed with juicy beef? NOPE! That's not how we roll, and you know it. Our recipe -- as featured in the just-printed pages of The Hungry Girl Diet -- is much lighter than traditional tacos, and it includes a bonus side salad for a mega-satisfying meal. So if you're interested in losing weight while eating the foods you love (LIKE TACOS!), grab your copy of The Hungry Girl Diet today.
Serving Size: 2 tacos
