Eat Fit NOLA

New Orleans is celebrated for its food, but dining at your favorite restaurants doesn’t have to mean ditching your otherwise-healthy diet.   And making smart menu choices certainly doesn’t mean you’re relegated to plain grilled chicken over dry lettuce.

Molly Kimball, registered dietitian with Ochsner’s Elmwood Fitness Center, has collaborated with local restaurants to create Eat Fit NOLA, a partnership that highlights the better-for-you items right on the menu, making it effortless for anyone to eat nutritiously, anywhere in the city.

If you own a restaurant and are interested in joining or would like more information about Eat Fit NOLA, let us know!  Send an email to Molly Kimball, mkimball@ochsner.org.
