Hungry Girl


The first item on my Christmas List this year  is the Hungry Girl Cookbook. It’s not new, but I just heard about it on tv, and have recently signed up for the weekly email. The Hungry Girl website is fabulous – full of helpful hints on cutting calories and creative ways to enjoy eating on the skinny. The recipes also list Weight Watchers Points values, helpful for all the current and former Double-Dubs dieters like myself!

I’m loving Hungry Girl’s low-cal margarita!  I can’t think of a better way to plan one’s New Year’s diet reslutions than sipping on one of these….cheers!
