*This giveaway is sponsored by Hungry Girl*
Our giveaway of the day is a #1 Best Selling cookbook, and I am sure it will not take you long to understand why.
I reached out to Lisa, the blogger at HungryGirl.com, to ask her if we could use her newest cookbook in our giveaway series, and she said “YES!” I wanted to use one of her cookbooks because the recipes you will find in her cookbook are very similar to the types of recipes you would find on Meal Planning Mommies. I just knew that if you liked what you find on our blog, you are going to LOVE this cookbook. Let me tell you a little bit about the author, and then we will talk about today’s giveaway.
A little bit about the author.
Chances are good you have at least heard of Hungry Girl before. If you haven’t, let me bring you up to speed…
LISA LILLIEN is a New York Times bestselling author and the creator of the Hungry Girl brand. The founder of hungry-girl.com, she is obsessed with food—how wonderful it is, and how much of it she can eat and still fit into her pants. Millions of fans eagerly await Hungry Girl’s recipes and tips & tricks each weekday. Lillien has also starred in a top-rated cooking show on Food Network and Cooking Channel. She lives in Los Angeles, California. Lisa Lillien has sold millions of books by serving up clever and deliciously easy recipes with low calorie counts, huge portions, and easy-to-find ingredients that are good for you.
For me, I can totally get on board with Lisa’s whole “no food is off limits” philosophy, which is also why I got on board with Weight Watchers. Lisa helps you find ways to eat the foods you love, but without the guilt.
I am happy to tell you that one lucky MPM reader is going to win a signed copy of Lisa Lillien’s latest cookbook! Here is a little bit about the cookbook:
Lisa is taking things to the next level with Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry OBSESSED! Keeping in line with the current clean-eating food trend (and as a follow-up to her last smash-hit book, Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry), she’s taking on the beloved foods that Americans are OBSESSED with―comfort foods, junk foods, international favorites, desserts, and more! Donuts, lasagna, fried chicken, quesadillas, fudge… No food is off-limits, and all of them have been completely re-created, re-vamped, and CLEANED UP!
All the recipes are made with healthy ingredients and clock in at less than 375 calories! With the unique and healthy recipes in this cookbook, you can finally enjoy ALL the foods you crave while eating clean and staying lean!
Here are a few things I love about this cookbook:
I am a picture person. I decide if I am going to love a cookbook by flipping it open and looking at the pictures. You too? If you LOVE cookbooks with big, beautiful pictures of food that looks delicious, then this giveaway is for you. I thought you might appreciate taking just a little peek into some of the pictures in this cookbook…
Check out her “Fried Rice for Breakfast Bowl”…
… and chapter 13 and 14 are devoted to sweets you didn’t know you could have, but always wanted to… How about some chocolate with your chocolate? YUM!
2. SO. MANY. RECIPES!
There are 382 pages in this bad boy! I wish you could pick up this cookbook and actually feel it in your hands. Trust me when I say that the winner of this giveaway is going to be surprised at how heavy the package is when it arrives at their door. They’ll say to themselves, “Certainly, this cannot be my Hungry Girl cookbook in here… this is too heavy to be a cookbook”… or at least, that is what I said. 🙂
With comfort foods, junk foods, international favorites, decadent desserts, and more, no food is off-limits! The book features recipes like:
- Squashed & Sweet Potatoed Home Fries (91 calories)
- Philly You Up Cheesesteak Meatloaf (198 calories)
- OMG! Caramelized Onion Dip (75 calories)
- Saucy Sweet & Sour Chicken (284 calories)
- My Oh My Maple Nut Blondies (117 calories)
- Spaghetti Squash Your Hunger B-fast Bowl (271 calories)
- Love Me Tender Pot Roast (272 calories)
- Oh, Wow! Chicken & Waffles (353 calories)
- Three Cheers for Cheesecake Brownies (126 calories)
. . . and so much more!
3. GO TO RECIPE GUIDE!
On page 4 of the cookbook is a special section called the “Go To Recipe Guide” where you get lists of recipes that are just 5 ingredients or less, 15 minutes or less, 30 minutes or less, vegetarian, and gluten-free!
Here is why this is so fabulous..
- Each of these sections could be a stand-alone cookbook, so you kind of feel like you are getting 5 or more cookbooks in one.
- Do you know someone who has to maintain a gluten-free diet? I have several people in my life who need to eat gluten-free, and when I have them over, I want to cook them something nice to eat. This cookbook makes it easy to find the recipes that are gluten-free… or vegetarian.
- The 5 ingredient section is great when you just want an easy, no-fuss meal or when you are trying to be frugal. I just love an impressive 5-ingredient recipe, don’t you?
In this cookbook, you will get…
- 33 recipes with 5 ingredients or less
- 63 recipes in 30 minutes or less
- 98 vegetarian recipes
- 95 gluten-free recipes
4. RECIPES AT A GLANCE!
Maybe you don’t need a gluten-free recipe, but you know that you have cauliflower, and you are looking for a reason to use it. You can flip back to page 362 where the Hungry Girl team has put together an “HG OBSESSIONS” section. Do you like peanut butter? They have a section that lists all of the recipes that use peanut butter. Not really into peanut butter, but you are looking for new ways to eat (ZERO POINT) chicken? There is a section for that too.
Plus, Smart Points per serving for each recipe are available online!
I know many of you who come to Meal Planning Mommies are counting Weight Watchers Smart Points, so I am happy to tell you this bit of information…
Lisa Lillilen is very good about sharing the information that Weight Watchers members need in order to be successful in their weight loss journey. Consistent with what you would expect from Lisa, she has a place on her blog where you can get the Smart Points for each recipe in all of her cookbooks. Simply go here and click the “Click to download the SmartPoints values” and you will be taken to a PDF you can print off to see a complete list of all the recipes in the cookbook in the order you would find them in the cookbook.
