Hungry Girl Clean & Hungry: All-Natural Recipes for Clean Eating in the Real World

Lisa Lillien. St. Martin’s Griffin, $19.99 trade paper (368p) ISBN 978-0-312-67677-3
Lillien’s high-energy, accessible 13th Hungry Girl cookbook focuses on making her crowd-pleasing low-calorie, big-yield dishes with natural ingredients. As ever, the foods are designed for quick assembly and maximum convenience, exemplified by the make-ahead oatmeal bakes in many flavors and the slow-cooker chicken fajitas. Veg-centric food blog trends are in full effect here, including cauliflower in all its forms (pizza, rice, hash browns), spiralized zucchini noodles, and black bean brownies. Some readers might bristle at the reliance on protein powder and Truvia in a “clean” cookbook, but for the most part Lillien has eschewed processed and premade for fresh and uncomplicated. Most readers will simply rejoice at the fact that pumpkin spice waffles, barbecue meatloaf , and fudgy flourless chocolate cake are now legit diet foods. Agent: Neeti Madan, Sterling Lord Literistic.
