Giveaway Healthy Eating Recipes

She’s Not a Nutritionist…She’s Just Hungry!

Saturday was a fantastic day because I had the opportunity to meet and chat with Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien. She was just as wonderful as I had imagined she’d be. And her staff, her sister and her friends were equally awesome.


After she spoke to the audience, she autographed books for everyone who stood in line. She even autographed a book for my blog which one lucky reader will receive! More on that in a moment. After signing my books, she said “Ohh, you’re @AllTheWeigh?” and asked to see a “before” pic which was pretty awesome considering I do not yet have an “after” picture.

We chatted after the signing, and I showed her a couple of pics at my heaviest. She and her peeps were all extraordinarily sweet and encouraging.

I learned that she loves her Lord of the Onion Rings as much as I do – and another of her favorites is the Hungry Girlfredo. I would have to agree..these recipes are awesome just like countless others. If you haven’t tried them then do it today!

We also received grab bags full of healthy goodies that I already love. We got Fiber One cereal, Laughing Cow Cheese, Vitatops, Tasti-D-Lite gift cards (seriously awesome..I know!) We also got mashed potato flakes, Pop Chips (which rock my world) and other goodies. I’ve been to other books signings, but I’ve never been to one like this. If you have an opportunity see her you should. 🙂


A local newspaper asked me a few questions which was exciting until I read the flawed article today. They misquoted me, said I was 28 instead of 29 and reported that it had taken me a year and a half to lose 92 pounds rather than the year it actually took. That part really bothers me because you all know I’ve been diligent over the last 52 weeks. But hey…what can I do? 😉

I also made a new friend from the Rachael Ray show, and I’m excited to see her again on Wednesday when I attend a taping of the show. She was cool and lovely and so sweet! I can’t wait to enjoy the Rachael Ray show later this week.

Have I ever mentioned how much I love New York? Experiences like this is one of the biggest reasons I love it here! 🙂

Now more about the giveaway:

Lisa (aka Hungry Girl) was generous enough to autograph a copy of her newest cookbook for one of my readers. How awesome is that?! If you’d like to an opportunity to win it, leave a comment telling me your favorite HG recipe. If you’d like another entry post about the giveaway on twitter. If you post about it on your own blog, you’ll get three additional entries. And if you leave a comment telling me that you’ve signed up for her mailing letter, you’ll receive three extra entries!


Please leave a comment for each entry, and on Friday, April 9, I’ll use random.org to choose a winner! The winner will receive the autographed book and the opportunity to try tons of new and tasty recipes! If you enter to win, please be sure to leave you e-mail so I can contact you if you’re the winner. The winner will have until Monday, April 12 to contact me or another winner will e chose.

Meeting Hungry Girl, karaoke with friends and celebrating Easter made mine a weekend to remember. I hope your weekend was as good as mine. What was the highlight of yours?

    So exciting!! I am so happy that you got to meet her, and she recognized just how fabulous you are! How exciting that she signed a copy for your blog! I would ♥ to win. I don't really know many of her recipes. I do follow her on Facebook, so I get tips on there. But no so much on the recipes. Maybe that's why I should win? 🙂

    I LOVE Hungry Girl! I haven't made many of her recipes, but I do love Lord of the Onion Rings and the Egg Mug recipes (that has made b'fast so easy!) I would love to win the book because I'm a big fan of hers (and yours!), and I could share the recipes with my WW group!

    I have always loved the mock mozz cheese sticks! They are similar to the onion rings in that they use Fiber 1 and an Egg Beaters wash…I think they end up being 1 pt for 2? But they totally satisfy that craving for "fried foods" that I get whenever I watch sports with my husband on TV!!

    I haven't had a chance to read HG's new book, but I would love to win a copy!!! osualum@gmail.com Kristin

    I had heard of Hungry Girl before but it wasn't until I started reading this blog that I actually took the time to check out one of the recipes. The Lord of the Onion Rings recipe reference intrigued me. I would love to have more recipes so I hope to win!

    I don't have a blog.Can I still join? I e-mailed you my address.
    I think the hungry girl is the best ever. I use her recipes at least once a week, but I dont have her new book because money is tight now. I really hope I win. Thx a mill for doing this.
