Mission Impossible? Healthy Eating in NOLA

Jump to last reply

Since my husband's triple bypass, we have both followed a strict heart patient's diet -- that is, fewer than 1500 mgs of sodium a day, and low fat. We've been able to stick to the diet in Washington, Charleston and other places by finding suitable restaurants online before we left, and getting tips from hotel staff.

We have never been to New Orleans, where trip reports usually mention saucy or spicy dishes and shrimp or crawfish (which we never liked), beignets and so forth.

We are considering a five-night visit in April 2013. Will we be able to find restaurants where we could have scallops, haddock or salmon broiled in a bit of olive oil, or grilled chicken breast? We'd love to visit the city but wouldn't compromise our diet.

What restaurants, specifically, should we try?

Thank you.
