Dear Hungry Girl,

It's cocktail party season, and I need help. I'm having a girls-only cocktail
night, and I want to WOW everyone with some AMAZING low-calorie drinks.
What'cha got for me, HG?

Party Time in PA

Dear Party Time,

GREAT idea! Stirring up fun drinks for your very own guilt-free cocktail party
is definitely easier than figuring out which ones to order when you're out. If
you're staying home and want to have something super-fun and easy, whip
up a batch of our Magical Low-Calorie Margaritas. They're AMAZING (and NO
ONE can tell the difference between them and regular ones, which typically
have three times as many calories)! You can even make them without
alcohol (for the designated driver or anyone who doesn't like to drink). Other
must-haves to keep handy for your bash are Torani Sugar Free Syrups,
Crystal Light drink mixes, fruity diet sodas, fresh fruit for garnishing and
blending, and plenty of fresh ice! And stick with clear alcohols (like vodka
and light rum) -- those have fewer calories than creamy liqueurs. For more
of my cocktail tips and recipes, click here, here and here! (And PLEASE make
sure everyone drinks responsibly!)

Dear HG,

I have a problem. I eat breakfast and then find myself hungry about an hour
after I finish. Typically I'll have a bowl of oatmeal or some cold cereal. What
can I do to stay full in between breakfast and lunch?

Need More Food

Dear NMF,

I'm SO with you. As much as I love oatmeal and cold cereal, they simply
don't keep me full for long after I eat them for breakfast. I prefer to go for
protein-packed b-fasts instead of carb-based ones. I recommend all kinds of
fun morning scrambles. Start with egg whites or some fat-free liquid egg
substitute (like Egg Beaters) -- then mix in lots of delicious things.

Here's a quick Top Ate list of egg add-ins:

1. Fat-free cheeses
2. Veggies (peppers, onions, and mushrooms all ROCK in scrambles!)
3. Extra-lean turkey bacon (check out Jennie-O's version)
4. Low-fat sausage (look for chicken, turkey, and veggie sausage -- they're
often the lowest in fat)
5. Veggie patties (chop one up and scramble it right in!)
6. Lean skinless chicken breast meat
7. Low-fat chili (makes a great omelette topper)
8. Turkey pepperoni

Sometimes I'll have two mini breakfasts. I'll start with one of those egg
scrambles. Then a few hours later, I'll have a container of fat-free yogurt --
Fage Total 0% or Yoplait Light (both taste great and are very filling). If you
want to add some low-calorie carbs to your scramble, try having it with a
slice of light toast (with some sugar-free preserves!). Breaking up your
morning meal is a good way to keep you feeling satisfied until it's time for
lunch -- so once you figure out what a balanced and filling breakfast is for
you (everyone is different), try splitting it up like this. Of course that means
you're eating two breakfasts, but if they're small and sensible, then you're
not consuming a crazy amount of calories. Good luck and happy
