Just because you’re on a diet doesn’t mean you can’t eat large portions of your favorite foods. Hungry Girl’s new book “The Hungry Girl Diet” has recipes that let you keep eating your favorites like the Super-Sized Sandwich Platter with Tuna, Turkey or Chicken below.


  • Sandwich
  • 4 ounces low-sodium tuna packed in water (drained), no-salt-added turkey breast (about 8 slices), or cooked skinless chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons light mayonnaise
  • One 100-calorie flat sandwich bun or 2 slices light bread, toasted (optional)
  • 1 large tomato slice
  • 1 lettuce leaf
  • Optional seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning
  • Veggies and Dip
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar snap peas, red bell pepper, carrots, and/or other high-fiber veggies
  • 1 serving (3 to 4 tablespoons) Sweet ’n Tangy Tomato Dip, Creamy Cilantro Dip, or Creamy Balsamic Dip
  • Cooking Directions

    If having the tuna, mix it with mayo and optional ingredients. If you’re packing your lunch to go, keep the tuna mixture separate from the bread until lunchtime.

    To prepare the chicken, pound a 5-ounce raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet to ½-inch thickness. Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Season to taste with salt-free seasoning.

    Assemble sandwich and enjoy with veggies and dip.
