Here's the skinny on SKINNYPIZZA in Addison Circle

You can't eat pizza every day and stay skinny - right? Not true at SKINNYPIZZA, which recently opened in Addison Circle, promising all-natural ingredients and lower calorie counts for pizza fanatics and health-conscious patrons alike.

They invited me in to sample their menu, so I popped in for lunch to try a pizza, pasta, and salad. I go into every healthy situation a skeptic, so I was pleasantly surprised when I actually really liked what I tasted here.

SKINNYPIZZA spent years developing their recipe to obtain the taste that real pizza lovers can get on board with. What they've created is a NY style thin and crispy crust that has a firm crunch and pairs well with just about any topping you choose. You can feel good about choosing to eat at SKINNYPIZZA because of their dedication to avoiding preservatives and additives in their crust. Not only that, but their pizza sauce is 100% organic, cheeses are all natural, and the toppings are all antibiotic-free and hormone-free.

The pizza I ordered was one on the higher end of the calorie spectrum of their pies (1080 for the whole pie), but the taste of the Skinny Italian was worth every last one. It's topped with hormone-free sausage and ground beef, peppers, olives, nitrite-free pepperoni, part-skim mozzarella, mushrooms, plus their organic tomato sauce. Other pizzas had as little as 600 calories for the whole personal sized pizza. That's something even those working hard for their beach body can indulge in. Choose from original skinny (highly recommend), whole wheat, or gluten free crust for your pie.

Gluten free customers can also have GF spaghetti at SP. Non-GF eaters can choose from several types of noodles and pair it with their favorite sauce. I opted for the penne with Alfredo and broccoli and it didn't disappoint. My favorite things about pizza and pasta (besides, DUH, it's pizza and pasta) is that they make for awesome leftovers.

The Gorgonzola Salad is exactly the type of salad I love. Tossed in a pleasant balsamic vinaigrette and filled with bits of creamy Gorgonzola, you could easily make a meal out of their large portion salads.

To wash it down, they offer a variety of beer and wine, plus specialty sodas and bottled lemonade. There's a large patio out front that's a great spot for people-watching while you chow down on your guilt-free pizza.

Make Healthy Choices Simple With The Halal Guys

The Halal Guys recently opened their newest Dallas area location on lower Greenville, the third in the area. The company has plans to expand further in the DFW, with the next being in north Plano in the coming weeks. The company began as a street cart in NY and now has grown to locations throughout the US and worldwide. Talk about a success story! The Halal Guys is an excellent choice for those who want to eat healthy without breaking the bank. Wondering what exactly Halal means? I had that very question a few years back upon seeing it on a restaurant door, and googled away. I also recently wrote an article for Richardson Living explaining just that. It introduces the concept and talks a bit more about the Richardson location of Halal Guys and explains their menu.  The menu is the same at all locations of The Halal Guys. You go through the line, and build your own wrap or platter. Fill it with your choice of gyro, chicken, or combo, then load it up with toppings and sauce

Get Saucy at Razzoo's Cajun Cafe Plano

I've long been a fan of Razzoo's Cajun Cafe, a Texas born restaurant that features scratch-made Lousiana favorites. All locations are locally owned, and the 26-year-old restaurant has most of its locations in Texas, with one in NC, and some new spots TBA in the near future. Some of my favorite fried indulgences at Razzoo's are the "Rat Toes" on their appetizer menu. If you love a bit of spice, ignore the name and order up some of these jalapenos stuffed with shrimp, crab, then battered and fried, served with a Cajun Buttermilk sauce for dipping. And that's just scratching the slippery surface on all of the house-made delicious sauces at Razzoo's. National Hot & Spicy Food Day is Saturday, August 19, so in anticipation of that awesome food holiday, Razzoo's  invited us out for our own little sauce tasting, AKA Delia' Paradise. I was NOT aware that Razzoo's cooks up FIFTEEN different sauces in house, and once I found this out, I cou

A Tribute to El Palacio of Mexican Food, Huntsville, Alabama

This week a large piece of my childhood will be laid to rest. I know you think I'm being overly dramatic, but if you've ever had an iconic place where you've spend a large chunk of your life, I hope you'll understand where I'm coming from on this.  I have literally 24 other restaurant story deadlines to meet, but today the only thing on my mind is the news I received yesterday. I found out by a fluke (an owner's response to a Facebook review I'd posted years ago), and ended up having to be the bearer of bad news to my family and friends who also hold this establishment near and dear to their hearts.  The first restaurant I ever loved is closing their doors this week. This is my farewell. El Palacio opened in Huntsville 51 years ago, in 1966. Jimmy and Nonie McClure opened the very first location in Amarillo in 1962 in a remodeled gas station, after the Mexican food they added to their steakhouse menu started selling like wildfire. They wanted to
