Ok, so it’s almost February and let’s be honest, who’s sticking to their New Years resolution to eat healthier?
Did you know that most people tend to give up on New Year’s resolutions between this week and the beginning of February? IF you’re like me, you want to find a balance when it comes to healthy eating and give yourself a break once in a while in the form of pizza. Giordano’s is the perfect place to both splurge and save on calories. Sound impossible right? Well, the well known pizza restaurant is serving up a delicious new menu with all of the flavor that local pizza lovers know to expect from their favorite pizzeria – at a fraction of the calories.
Based in Chicago, Giordano’s has been serving its world-famous stuffed deep-dish pizza since 1974, when founders and immigrant brothers Efren and Joseph Boglio introduced their mother’s stuffed pizza recipe to Chicago. Giordano’s currently operates restaurants across the Midwest and in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, and Nevada, and is also available for shipping anywhere in the continental United States at giordanos.com.
Through Monday, Feb. 4, Giordano’s will be offering choices off of their Lighter Fare menu, which includes crisp kale salads and savory flatbread pizza at a reduced calorie count that makes it possible to enjoy a guilt-free lunch or dinner. If I haven’t convinced you yet to give Giordano’s a try, they recently announced that anyone who is an LA Fitness member can show their membership card to get a 25% discount on the Lighter Fare menu. Kale Yeah!
Here’s what you you’re in for..
Mediterranean Kale Salad: Crisp Tuscan kale, fresh romaine, pesto marinated tomatoes, and perfectly-ripened cucumbers tossed in Giordano’s house-made kalamata olive lemon vinaigrette and topped with crunchy Parmesan-crusted almonds. (464 calories)
Grilled Buffalo Chicken Salad: Chopped grilled chicken breast, crisp bacon, baby heirloom tomatoes, savory blue cheese, crunchy bits of celery, scallions, and Giordano’s house-made lemon vinaigrette drizzled with zesty buffalo ranch. (493 calories)
Skinny Chicken Arrabiata Flatbread: Arrabiata sauce, grilled chicken breast, shaved asiago and Giordano’s famous mozzarella cheese topped with arugula and baby heirloom tomatoes tossed in a tangy house-made lemon vinaigrette. (721 calories)
There’s one more dish I need to mention because it’s out of this world and since it’s a vegetable I don’t feel bad about eating it along side the rest of the Lighter Fare menu 🙂 The artichoke heart fritters are to die for and the dipping sauce is delicious.
Don’t miss out on this tasty opportunity to stick to your daily calorie count by visiting Giordano’s as soon as you can!
