About Lisa Lillien

My name is Lisa and I'm just an average female, struggling with the same food issues most females struggle with every day. I try the latest fad diets, chomp on new fat free foods & diet products, and yes, I too order everything on the side. I consider myself a foodologist … not because I have some kind of fancy degree, but because I am obsessed with food, how wonderful it is, and how much of it will make it impossible for me to fit into my pants. Food is my passion and it has been my lifelong obsession.

I love food because food is delicious. My mantra, as many of my friends know, is "I'm hungry!" Because I obsess over food, I learn about it, read about it, research it, dream about it. Nothing gives me a thrill like discovering a new low cal snack or assembling a no fat pizza! Over the years my food obsession has caused me to accumulate approximately a zillion diet and food tips, and because I am not only hungry, but also very nice, I want to share them with you.


Cheesed-Up Pepperoni Pizza Scramble
Recipe courtesy Hungry Girl

Makes 1 Serving: 173 calories, 2.5g fat, 1,226mg sodium, 7.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 27g protein

1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/3 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup canned diced tomatoes with Italian seasonings, drained
9 slices turkey pepperoni, quartered
Dash salt
Dash oregano
Dash garlic powder
Optional: black pepper

Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add egg substitute and turkey pepperoni, and scramble as you would ordinary eggs. Add salt, oregano, garlic powder and, if you like, black pepper. Once scramble begins to look solid, after about 1 minute, add tomatoes. Scramble for another 30 seconds or so.

Sprinkle with mozzarella, reduce heat to low, and cover pan. Let cook for another 30 seconds, until cheese has melted and—voila—you're done!

Featured Recipes
from The Oven Light

Hungry Girl gabbed about these in the show:

Vitalicious VitaTop™ Muffin Tops
No time for your vitamin-fortified cereal this morning? Tired of chewing yet another nutritional bar, but still want your vitamins and minerals and 5-6g fiber with very little fat? Hungry Girl recommends these gems!
Vivi's Original Sauce
They're a sauce. They're a marinade. It’s a dip. They're a spread. They're a carnival of flavors with a recipe book full of entertaining uses. Hungry Girls says they're the ONLY condiments you'll ever need!

Almond Breeze Milk Substitute
Almond Breeze is an all-natural, non-dairy beverage made from real almonds. It's sugar-free and contains no artificial sweeteners. It's gluten, cholesterol & lactose free, an excellent source of calcium and vitamins D & E, and a good source of vitamin A. Hungry Girl thinks it's magical and too good to be true!

Lord of the Onion Rings
Here's one of Hungry Girl's favorite recipes. Instead of sucking down a greasy, oily, caloriefest of a side dish, chew a few of these crispy and crunchy circles of love (er, onions).

Fettuccine Hungry Girlfredo
Hungry Girl says it's really possible to make a guilt-free alfredo using Laughing Cow Cheese and Tofu Shirataki Fettuccine Shaped Tofu Noodles. Here's her recipe!
