NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The brand new 'Nacogdoches Dining Guide' shows eating out can be fun and healthy at the same time.

Live healthy. Live happy. It's on the guide's front cover.  
For sure you can accomplish the happy part at Butcher Boy's old fashioned hamburgers.

"Anybody that eats here knows that, you know, probably most of our meals are designed to be very tasteful. Some of them not necessarily healthy," said Billy Huddleston, owner of Butcher Boys.

Yet even at a sizzling popular hamburger restaurant regulars know too much of a good thing is bad.

"We started preparing low carb meals and salads about 6 or 8 years ago to provide a healthy meal for our regular customers," said Huddleston.

That was Huddleston's ticket into the Healthy Nacogdoches dining guide.  

Every menu from every participating restaurant was reviewed by Healthy Nacogdoches. Healthier selections to modifications are listed.

"Whether things are steamed or dressing on the side and those kinds of tips and that guide is on our website as well and also there is a logo at the restaurant," said Kinnie Douglas with  Healthy Nacogdoches.

Cotton Patch has one of those logos. It's a place where customers aren't bashful about being picky.

"Because we make everything fresh I can make it with no salt, no whatever, however you want it, we can do just about anything the way you want it," said Karen Kline, Cotton Patch manager.
Healthy Nacogdoches has no intention of banning bacon cheeseburgers, but it does want to remind diners to enjoy the healthier options on the menu.
