There's healthy eating, and then there's the Hungry Girl blog. Have you ever seen it?

I love to eat and cook, but I'm also a big believer in doing so relatively healthfully, except for the occasional indulgence.

HOWEVER, some people take this concept too far. Have you ever visited www.hungry-girl.com? It's a successful blog geared toward food-conscious women, and I was excited to hear about it because the author offers up frequent lower-calorie concoctions of favorite recipes, like fettuccine alfredo or french onion soup. However, this recipe (http://www.hungry-girl.com/chew/chewd...) for "better" lo mein drove me absolutely crazy.

I mean, Splenda instead of a touch of brown sugar? Blasphemy!

To be fair, Hungry Girl doesn't profess to be another Chow, but at the time the site's mission is to enable its readers to watch their figures AND enjoy food.

I say it fails. What do you think?
