Fall and winter bring a host of healthy dining pitfalls. Just ask Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. It’s hard not to enjoy all the decadent foods available. And people don’t have time to cook with busy schedules during the holidays.
Fortunately, if you live in the Metairie, Kenner, and River Ridge areas, there are plenty of healthy dining options. Unsure of what to order? No matter which restaurant you choose, nutritionists suggest making small, healthy dining decisions. Like swapping standard sides for a healthier pick like vegetables. Or choosing entrees that are steamed, trading white rice for brown, and skipping empty calories like bread.
