A little over a week ago I had the opportunity to attend a book signing and blogger meet-up with Lisa Lillien, the best-selling author and founder of Hungry Girl. Hungry Girl started as a site that provides tips and recipes for people who love to eat and also want to keep it healthy. I've been a fan of Hungry Girl for years so of course I jumped at the chance to attend.
|Lisa loves Laughing Cow cheese!|
- Lots of veggies make great pizza crust alternatives: eggplant, portobello mushrooms, bell peppers.
- One stick of light string cheese in a blender is the perfect amount of cheese for a personal sized pizza.
- If you want to make homemade french fries there are lots of veggies that work great besides potatoes: turnips, carrots, butternut squash. (I will definitely be trying these out!)
- Don't always assume that "lean" on a package means healthy. Did you know that lean ground turkey usually has more fat than lean ground beef?
|We couldn't resist the chance to get a roc blogger pic with Lisa! L-R: Me, Melissa from Hungry Food Love, Lisa, Tracy from Rah Cha Chow, Amanda from Amanda's Dish, Sarah from Mindfully Frugal Mom, and Becky from The Fluff Report|
In addition to meeting Lisa this event gave me a chance to meet some fellow bloggers (some of whom I have been following for years)! Check out their blogs (listed in the caption above). They are a bunch of amazingly creative and talented women!
|It's almost like she knows me!|
"It's all about a realistic approach to eating smart. If you make good choices most of the time, you can be a little more flexible other times."Now that you know all about Lisa and her new book how would you like a copy of your own? Hungry Girl and Flatout are giving a sweet prize pack to one of my lucky readers! (If you follow me on social media then you've already seen the swag.)
