review 1: If you like Hungary Girl, this may be worth checking out. Otherwise, you'll get better guidance from the 'Eat This, Not That' series or other nutrition books. Basically, Lillien dishes on her preferred brands; details how to stock your cart; and includes some of her basic recipes. My main critique is that most of this is 'fake food' - for example, she champions Laughing Cow cheese wedges, which are basically laden with chemicals. She's also a huge fan of artificial sweeteners, which I'm not wild about. She does address this concern a little in her opening, and does include produce aisle choices and recipes, but she still pushes the fake food a bit much for my liking.The book is very well-organized, and contains summaries and cheat sheets in the back for you to take al... moreong to the market. A good thing about many of her meal and snack ideas is that they're useful for one person, which is great if you're dining alone. While many of the recipes included here are in her other books, the ones she's included here are the most basic and adaptable. This would be a good intro to the 'Hungary Girl' series for someone that's just starting to shop for themselves, like a college student or person who just got their first place.
review 2: This book is pretty useful for the calorie-conscious shopper. I've made some recipes from one of the Hungry Girl cookbooks before, so I trust her to give realistic and tasty recommendations for what to buy. She does a few useful things: tells you where in the store some of the things are, gives quick recipe type suggestions, gives lists in the back of the recommended items, and tells things to stay away from. less
