A Few Favorite Hungry Girl RecipesWith the increasing popularity of conscious eating and the battle against obesity in the United States comes many unique and revolutionary methods to eat and enjoy food. In the past, women would need to cut out fats, carbs, sugar, and basically anything with flavor in order to fill their stomach while retain their dress sizes. Now, with websites hosting foods like those found in the hungry girl recipes, women world-wide can enjoy what they want, but eat it in a new and healthy way.

The concept for this particular brand was created by a woman who, like many others, enjoys eating, but wanted to find a way to enjoy food without feeling guilty about eating it. These recipes can be seen on various weight loss sites and health magazines, as well as in many professionally published books.

Healthy Pasta:

If you are seeking hungry girl recipes that will let you enjoy a hearty Italian meal without the extra calories, try Zucchini Marinara. With only three ingredients, this recipe can be achieved in very little time, but with a big flavor. Using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler, slice zucchini into long thin strips which resemble pasta noodles. Place these into a non-stick frying pan or a skillet with just a dab of olive oil to coat the pan. The zucchini noodles are then cooked on medium heat. When they are tender, roughly three minutes later, serve on a plate with a scoop of low-sodium marinara sauce, which has been heated in a sauce pot. A sprinkling of parmesan completes the dish.

Low Calorie Sides:

One thing that every girl on a diet tends to miss are deep fried side dishes. While most hungry girl recipes don't include a fryer, you can achieve the same yummy taste without all the added fat if you bake instead. Try this fun recipe to make a healthy twist on onion rings.

Taking one large onion, peel and cut off end pieces, then slice into evenly spaced rings. In a food processor or blender, grind half a cup of bran flake cereal, a sprinkle of ground black pepper, a pinch of salt, 1/4 tsp of garlic powder and 1/8 tsp of onion powder. In a bowl, whisk one egg, or use egg substitute and dip each individual onion ring into the egg then the crumb mixture, coating it evenly. Onion rings bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes on each side.

Party Favorites:

For an easy party appetizer, a fan favorite is pigs in a blanket. You can create this dish at home using less heavy ingredients by opting for the fat free alternative to regular hot dogs. If you can't find the mini variety in the almost fat-free variety, you can use a regular length frank, and slice it into three. These will be wrapped in a reduced fat crescent roll pastry dough, which can be found pre-made and chilled in most grocery stores. Cut the dough into strips or triangles and wrap each miniature hot dog. Place on a lined cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees, or until the dough begins to turn golden and crisp.
