(Oct. 7, 4:45 p.m.) Blogger and best-selling cookbook author Lisa Lillien â better known by her online persona, âHungry Girlâ â will be at Salinas, Calif.-based Mann Packing Co. Inc.âs booth during the Produce Marketing Associationâs Fresh Summit in Orlando.
She is scheduled to appear at the Mann booth (No. 1969) Oct. 25, to offer free samples of two of her broccoli coleslaw recipes served with Mannâs âSimply Singlesâ whole leaf lettuce. She is also scheduled to sign copies of her new cookbook, âHungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real Worldâ from noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 25.
Mann Packing co-chairwoman Lorri Koster said that Lillienâs popularity grew out of e-mails to her friends, and now her Web site has more than 500,000 subscribers. Lillien has appeared on television and writes for Yahoo! and Weight Watchersâ Web site.
âWe discovered hungry-girl.com and fell in love with Lisa and her positive outlook towards food and health,â Koster said in a news release. âShe relates to our customers. When she tells you how to âchew the right thingâ or how to have a healthy âgirlsâ bite outâ it doesnât make eating well sound like work. We make fresh vegetables easy, she makes them fun.â
Koster said every time Lillien uses Mannâs products, the company is bombarded with requests.
âSheâs a lot of fun and about to become huge, so Iâm glad we got her on her way to fame,â Koster said in the release.
