Just when you think you've seen it all . . .
comes this appalling cookbook, Hungry Girl, which touts itself as offering 200 recipes under 200 calories each.
The title says it all, to my mind: Hungry girl. Is that what we're aiming for here? To make sure girls stay hungry? Not to mention malnourished, obsessed, and generally distracted from more important matters?
Just think of all that women could achieve--women, not girls--if they weren't hungry all the time, or thinking about food, or worrying about what they're eating or not eating.
