Not a Book Review

I picked up Hungry Girl: 200 Under 200 by Lisa Lillien. I thought it would have some fun quick recipes.

I paged through it and started to be a little alarmed. So I went back to the beginning. And there were the “staple ingredients”–the majority of which I don’t consider to be actual food products. Noodle Substitute and Margarine Spray are not ever going to be staples in my diet.

I’m not hugely in love with food, but I do like to eat actual food. This one is going onwards to the next person on the holds list.

    Eww, they have non-dairy "creamer" as a "staple," too.

    I looked at it this week and put it back. I give her credit for using lots of fruits and vegetables, but there was way too many processed food products for me. Noreen
