Louisiana, Are You Ready for the Return of the ‘Healthy’ King Cake?
I don't care where you "got dem shoes" whether they are on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Jefferson Street in Lafayette, or MacArthur Drive in Alexandria if the feet in those shoes belong to someone who loves Louisiana then you're a fan of King Cakes. And thanks to Ochsner Eat Fit you'll be able to enjoy a King Cake this Mardi Gras season and you can still keep your resolution to eat healthier.
For the 5th year in a row, the folks at Ochsner Eat Fit are bringing back their "Eat Fit King Cake". I know you've been burned before by well-meaning companies that offer a healthy version of something that usually tastes good only to find the "healthy" version missed big time on the flavor and taste. But this King Cake is a little, no it's a lot different.
How would you like to enjoy a King Cake that is gluten-free, keto-friendly, low in carbs, and has zero sugar? You can thanks to the Eat Fit King Cake. It comes in a six-inch size and is perfect for snacking or sharing. The Eat Fit King Cake has about 93% fewer carbs than the traditional King Cake. It also has more fiber too.
How Does the Eat Fit King Cake Taste?
We'd be lying if we said it tastes just like the King Cakes you grew up eating, it doesn't but it does taste pretty good. The whole wheat flour gives the cake a different texture and mouth feel. In my opinion, it does have a bit of a grainier texture than the more traditional versions of the Mardi Gras staple.
The cake still has a delicious cinnamon flavor and when compared to having to "do without" the Eat Fit King Cake is a resounding winner in my book. The cakes are available at many retailers around the state (here's the list) or you may purchase them online. The average retail price is $12.99 to $14.99 but you might wind up paying a little more if you want to have the cake or cakes shipped.
By the way, Ochsner Health has expanded its Eat Fit partnership with the support of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana Foundation to expand that program statewide. The program encourages chefs at participating restaurants to create nutritious meals for those who want to watch their weight, and manage diabetes, blood pressure, and cholesterol.
There are now Eat Fit options available in New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Acadiana (Lafayette), and Shreveport. You'll just want to download the Eat Fit App and start enjoying all the great healthy flavors of Louisiana.
