New Orleans Healthy And Vegan Super Bowl.
New Orleans, The Big Easy, Chocolate City…now add Home of Super Bowl 47! Hosting this year’s big game, fans witll be pouring into the city in droves and bringing an appetite. If you happen to be one of those fans and are looking to steer clear of greasy, fattening food, be sure to check out some of these places I found that offer up healthy, vegan and even gluten free options!
If you happen to wander the French Quarter in search of some southern delights, make a pitstop at The Gumbo Shop. This quaint eatery has been around for some time and specializes in southern cajun cooking. But what to do as a vegan? Order up a delicious veganized special ; ) They have a vegetarian special that changes nightly on the menu. It comes with salad and a tasty side (I had this crazy yummy corn dish) with the main dish being a rice an beans stew with some cajun kick. It is fantastic and I highly recommend The Gumbo Shop for veggies and omnivores alike. Great food and sweet southern hospitality!!
Looking for breakfast at dinner? Grab a hearty dinner/breakfast at Slim Goodies Diner. It’s a good 5-10 minutes outside of downtown but in the super cute Garden District. They have something for everyone including the hungry vegan. I had the Garden Slammer – a pile of hash browns, veggie bacon and veggie chili with lots of yummy veggies mixed in. My dude had pancakes ; ) Check out the creative menu at Slim Goodies!!
