One of the coolest things about having a blog like Mindfully Frugal Mom is being able to participate in unique local events. On Thursday, May 8, I was asked to meet Lisa Lillien, aka “Hungry Girl“ at the Pittsford Wegmans with other local bloggers and food writers to take a tour of the Pittsford Wegmans through the Hungry Girl’s eyes.
Lisa has written EIGHT bestselling books on food, health, and nutrition, and has appeared on the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. You can find all the Hungry Girl Books Here.
I was a few minutes late to the tour (shocker), so when I met up with the group we were in the dairy section. Lisa pointed out the Laughing Cow Cheese Wedges in Chipotle Flavor as an example of a snack that packs a big flavor punch without having a lot of calories.
In fact, I bet the Chipotle Cheese Wedges would taste great slathered on the Flatout Flatbread. I’ve gotten to try a variety of Flatout products recently and they are GREAT! Taste wonderful – even the kids love them, and they are very low in calories.
Apparently, Wegmans’ new 100% Whole Wheat bread with walnuts and raisins is their biggest seller. Also, it’s DELISH. I can see kids really digging this too.
Lisa graciously took the time to sign all of our books and take pics! This woman is the selfie queen!
