Healthy Choices

  • Baked or blackened chicken
  • Baked yams or plantains
  • Collard greens
  • Black-eyed peas
  • Grits
  • Potato rolls
  • Mustard crawfish salad
  • Shrimp or snapper Creole
  • Shrimp jambalaya
  • Vegetable gumbo
  • Soft shell crab salad
  • Steamed stone crabs
  • Warm fruit compote


  • Collards & black eyed peas are often cooked with ham hock or bacon.  While these add fat, they are still a better choice than a lot of side dishes.
  • Take advantage of creoles and jambalayas - the spices add lots of flavor while keeping the calories lower.
