Healthy Dining Options in Metairie, Kenner, and River Ridge

Fall and winter bring a host of healthy-eating pitfalls — just ask Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. In addition to feeling tempted by decadent foods, people often don’t have extra time to cook thanks to busy schedules during the holiday season. Fortunately, if you live in the Metairie, Kenner, and River Ridge areas, there are plenty of fresh, healthy dining options to keep your hunger and your health in check. Unsure of what to order? No matter which restaurant you choose, nutritionists suggest swapping standard sides for a healthier pick like vegetables, choosing entrees that are steamed, trading white rice for brown rice, and skipping empty calories like bread or tortilla chips.
