Snack Girl’s 1,000th Post

April 10, 2013   67 Comments

Here it is, dear readers. Yes, today is my 1000th post.

1000 Posts!

(and, no, that is not me jumping up there - I can get one inch off the ground if I am lucky)

Man, that went fast!! I have been here faithfully writing about healthy eating since 2009 and today, I thought I would sit back and smell the roses.

Sniff. AAAHCHOO!

All right, back to work :)

My first month in 2009, a grand total of 900 visitors showed up to Snack Girl. Back then it was called Snack Snoop and my friends were kind enough to visit a couple of times to make me feel good (I do not have 900 friends - some people found it by accident).

I changed the name from “Snack Snoop” when people kept calling it “Snack Poop” (whoops). My husband came up with Snack Girl and it has stuck.

Last month over 240,000 visitors stopped by. To say that I am absolutely thrilled by the following is an understatement.

Below is a list of my favorite posts of the 1,000 that I have written. Yes, some have been repeats, but most are original. I hope you have enjoyed this site and that you will share it with your friends (and come back again and again).

We won’t always agree, but we can learn from each other.

My 10 Favorite Posts (not in any order):

1. twohamburgers2b McDonald's Burger Left for Two Weeks

2. greensmoothieb This Green Smoothie Does NOT Taste Like Grass

3. homemademicrowavepocornb DIY Microwave Popcorn: Healthy, Yummy, and CHEAP

4. monsterb The Worst Snack You Can Drink

5. brownieballxmasb Give the Gift of A Healthy Snack (Your Friends Won't Even Know Its Healthy!)

Thank you, Lisa, for your diligent work on your website - so many people are benefiting from it. I work at a Senior Center and run a weekly diet/healthy food choice program. I often share information with my group that I have learned about through your site. Thank you!!!

on April 10, 2013

Congrats Snack Girl! Love your blog and check it everyday. My favorite post is Kale Chips: Believe the Hype. I was a non-believer but happened to get some kale in my co-op box that week. Tried them and I am hooked.

on April 10, 2013

Thank you for this site. I have really enjoyed it

The recipes are fun, easy and good.

Good luck to you for the next 1000 posts

on April 10, 2013

Absolutely congratulations. I'm sure like any professional - you make this all look easy, but I'm sure you have put in hours of reading and research that we don't really see. What we get is a fun, informative quick read blog post, that takes - what? - a minute to read - but probably took you much much longer to research and compose. So THANK YOU! THANK YOU THANK YOU! For all that you do and your willingness to share with the rest of us.

on April 10, 2013

Congratulation! Thanks for all the help!

on April 10, 2013

Nice work!! I read your stuff every day :)

on April 10, 2013

dear Snack Girl, was it only yesterday??? I remember a year ago, eating the McDonald's ChickenSnackWrap Grilled NoSauce No Cheese when I was with my stepdaughter in another state for wedding planning-- thinking "Snack girl told me about this!". The occasional 'dessert' I concoct from your recipes (rhubarb crisp went over the best). I LOVE your post, the way you talk, and that you, like we all try to, just live, and don't give up! Rock on!

on April 10, 2013

what a milestone! love your site. I am new to healthy eating and am astounded by the info you provide. keep up the good work!

on April 10, 2013

CONGRATULATIONS! What a great accomplishment for you and a true benefit for all of us. Our health has been improved immensely!!! Thank you...(;

on April 10, 2013

Congratulations! Your blog has taught me SO much since I discovered you last year! It really helps me make better choices for my family. Keep up the AWESOME work!

on April 10, 2013

Hooray for you! What a wonderful milestone. I'm so happy the blog has been such a huge success. I think your honest opinions and fun personality are what make it great. :D Way to go!!!

So thanks to you, my husband ( I have slowly turned him from his hotdog and frozen pizza ways) declared to me that hs is done with fast food, specifically "fried" fast food. An epiphany! I have you to thank for the information that makes us stop and think about the junk we are daily marketed with(using big dollars)My 11 year old was at the end of the table at a resturant and on his own, ordered a plain turkey burger on whole wheat, my 3 year old chose plain white milk over rootbeer floats all the other kids (not mine) were ordering. Victory is mine (and yours).

on April 10, 2013

PS my favorite post was the mcd's cheeseburger - has etched itself in my mind. I will never be the same and hopefully my family won't either.

on April 10, 2013

Thank you, dear readers! But, 1000 more?? OMG, that sounds insane to me right now. Luckily, the tap is not dry.

xoxo,

Lisa

on April 10, 2013

Best food site ever! Thank you for taking this on!

on April 10, 2013

Thank you for all the effort that you've put into this site. I'm always learning from it and getting new recipes. BTW, you were wise to start giving yourself Fridays off a few months ago; you've earned that!

on April 10, 2013

Thanks again. Your posts have changed my outlook on food. I learned to not deprive myself of anything I like, just choose a healthier alternative.

on April 10, 2013

I love your site!! It gives me healthy food ideas for my group (above). I always post your link when I share so that people can come here for more. I am very happy for you that you have so many subscribers. I can only hope to have that many followers one day!! Keep up the great work, Snack Girl :) Btw, Snack Poop is too funny lol!!!!

on April 10, 2013

Just wanted to express some gratitude for all of your efforts. Cheers from one of your Canadian fans.

on April 10, 2013

Congratulations!!! Waiting for the next 1,000 posts. I found your site from another site I found through another site following the story on the burger being left out on the counter. Keep up the good work.

on April 10, 2013

Good for you. Your honest and sincere efforts at informing us at what feels almost ike a person-to-person communication is appreciated.

on April 10, 2013

Congratulations. Like everyone else who has discovered you site, you and your readers have helped in creating many wonderful meals and discovering new ideas. Always a job well done.

on April 10, 2013

Love your blog, but let me tell you, I had the McDonald Fish Bites yesterday and they were absolutely HORRIBLE.....I ate about 4......for sure will not buy those again.....they had so much breading on them, I could not believe it.....I think someone commented on here that they were good and not much breading......but I would say, don't bother....save your money....unless you are like me and wanted to try them for yourself....I do like the WENDY's fish sandwich tho...it's the best I have tried....but to each his own.....just sayin................ :)

on April 10, 2013

Congratulations. I have often share your valuable information with my fb friends and on twitter. You have often helped me.

on April 10, 2013

Love your blogging! So glad I find it and I don't remember how.

on April 10, 2013

We are all happy you keep us informed and eating healthier versions of food we love. I stumbled across your post while recuperating from foot surgery a year ago (and I managed to make your no bake peanut butter balls) and look forward to reading your e-mail's every day!!!

Thank you for all you do and please keep up the great work!!!

on April 10, 2013

Yes!!!!!!!!! The McD's one is my all time favorite! I still read it and share with others and marvel at our food industry!

on April 11, 2013

I didn't know about the "snack snoop" thing. But I guess the fact that you review some bad snack, they really could be called "snack poop". But I like your new(er) name and your blog. Some great material. Keep up the good work!

on April 12, 2013

I signed up for emails when new comments a week ago or so and have not received any notification of new posts. Do I need to register or something? Thanx.
