Instead of going out, you should consider hosting a "girls night in." What's the secret to planning a "girl's night in"? How can we have great tasting food? How do you keep it easy? How do we keep the menu healthy? Chef Devin Alexander, author of Fast Food Fix and the Biggest Loser Cookbook has some suggestions.

Devin has four simple, great-tasting dishes that are healthy for your guests. She has created a fun Asian themed menu.

  • Appetizer includes do-it-yourself California rolls
  • Followed by an easy to make Smart Ones Fruit Inspirations Orange Sesame Chicken (which saves over 700 calories compared to Chinese takeout)
  • Thai Peanut Noodle Salad with Grilled Chicken as a tasty side dish loaded with vegetables
  • Dessert will be fortune cookies and fruit dipped in chocolate fondue
All of these options are inexpensive, easy to make and are healthy when entertaining friends. Your can find more recipes from Devin at
