Saints fans can grab new Superdome grub that is lean and healthy

You don't go to a Saints game looking for a salad. Dietitian Molly Kimball of Ochsner Health System knew that when she got a chance to create healthier food for game days at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

"My goal was to make dishes that would not be expected as healthy food," Kimball said. "You're not eating your fruit bowl or lettuce while everyone else is eating something more decadent."

We don't need the food giving fans heart attacks before the Saints can!

Re: Saints fans can grab new Superdome grub that is lean and healthy

When the Saints play, Eat Fit NOLA dishes will be sold on the main concourse of the Superdome at section 147 and on the second-level concourse at both sections 217 and 261.

Kimball and SWEGS Kitchen set up a pre-season tasting for NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. Here are three of our favorite Eat Fit options:

Red beans and brown rice

I probably should not tell you this, but the red beans are actually vegan. That's right, no sausage or chicken stock. I didn't miss the meat. The beans were tender and the flavor smoky and peppery. You might want to add a dash of hot sauce, but I'd say that about all red beans.

Pulled chicken sliders topped with slaw

The miniature wheat buns, baked locally, are flavorful and fresh. Chicken thighs are used to keep the sandwich moist.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

The creaminess comes from Greek yogurt, although there is a little cheese in the mix. The artichoke hearts are canned, which adds a little tanginess to balance the richness. I want this recipe to serve at my own Saints watching parties.

then wash it all down with a 32 oz beer. lite beer of course.

Lets see I eat healthy all week. Buy a ticket to a game then eat the same way?

I want Court of Two Sisters Sunday Brunch and game day foods that are grease covered cholesterol bombs.

Re: Saints fans can grab new Superdome grub that is lean and healthy

I don't eat raw veggies so the only thing I liked was the red beans and rice mentioned. But do red beans cause gas?

This is un-New Orleanian! If the food doesn't give you a heart-attack there is something wrong with it. Decadence R Us.

Things are lean enough with our salary cap and anemic pass rush...
