Apr 5th, 2017

French Quarter restaurants offer an abundance of rich, decadent dishes to indulge in while taking in the music and sights. This is especially true during the French Quarter Festival, which, this year, runs Thursday (April 6) through Sunday.

While the fest offers gluten-free or vegan options, if you're trying to keep things in check nutritionally, we have year-round options for you at Eat Fit NOLA-approved restaurants serve local fare that's both delicious and nutritious.

Eat Fit NOLA is a nonprofit initiative of Ochsner Health System that I started in 2013. The Ochsner Eat Fit team works with local restaurants to develop and identify menu items that meet specific nutritional criteria, including no white carbs, less than a teaspoon of added sugar, low animal-based saturated fats, and reduced sodium.There is no charge for the restaurants to be a part of Eat Fit NOLA; all nutritional analysis is done for free by the Ochsner Eat Fit nutrition team.
