Thumbs up Are y'all familiar with Ellie Krieger?

I have only recently discovered Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger on the food network, and I love it.
Are any of you familiar with her? Are her show and website (elliekrieger.com) ("Small Changes Big Results") not just great?

I enjoy her show. She is much more "real" than most of the others. I haven't used any of the recipes yet, but will get around to it soon.

Just saw Ellie on The Today Show. I also watch her show when I can. She does a great job putting across the message that you don't have to live on lettuce alone, but can tweak favorite recipes and use a little control over portions and enjoy your food.

I watch her show sometimes, and I think she's very sweet. But many of the dishes she makes just don't look good to me.

I've watched Ellie a few times and while I might not rush out to make her recipes exactly as she did - she has give me "food for thought" on ways to tweak a meal to make it a little healthier.

Sorry about the pun.

I especially like the nutritional information she gives about the foods she includes in her recipes. I like her show.

I have watched her too - I need to pay more attention to form an opinion.

I like the show, but I'm not sure she's very good as a TV personality.

She had a suggestion to use spaghetti squash instead of real spaghetti on one of her shows. I tried it out last week and it worked great! I'll never give up real spaghetti, but this worked out great as we were out of pasta, I had a spaghetti squash, and I didn't want to run to the store.

I haven't checked out the web site yet, but I think I will now.

Maybe she is a better TV personality than you thought. She has renamed a few oldie but goldie recipes:
