Have your King Cake and Eat Fit too!
A healthy king cake? I admit it… when I first heard the news, I thought it was too good to be true. But the fact is, it’s just too good!
Mardi Gras revelers can indulge in the season’s most beloved sweet treat without busting their New Year’s resolutions, thanks to the Eat Fit King Cake! On sale in select stores throughout Louisiana and Texas and available for purchase online, the Eat Fit King Cake is gluten free, grain free, low carb, sugar-free, dairy free and all natural, without sacrificing flavor. It is an 11oz mini bundt-style cake.
Centered on an all-natural clean ingredient label, the Eat Fit King Cake is made with almond flour and coconut flour. It’s sweetened with locally-made Swerve, a natural, plant-based sweetener, with no artificial sweeteners or colors. Each serving has just two grams net carbs and zero sugar.
The Eat Fit King Cake is an offering of Eat Fit, a nonprofit initiative of Ochsner Health System. Ochsner Eat Fit was founded in 2013 to make nourishing, balanced meals more readily available in New Orleans restaurants. Since its founding, Ochsner Eat Fit has expanded to restaurants across Louisiana and recently released the Ochsner Eat Fit Cookbook allowing people to bring nutritious gourmet meals into their own kitchens.
The Eat Fit nutritional criteria is designed for people who want to simply eat clean, look better or feel better, as well as individuals with health issues including inflammatory conditions, diabetes, high blood pressure or obesity. Today Ochsner Eat Fit partners with more than 300 restaurants across the state and can be found in some of Louisiana’s most iconic spots including the Mercedes Benz Superdome, Audubon Zoo and the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport.
