A friend will be working in New Orleans for a few months and is looking for healthy non-Cajun/Creole restaurants. Nothing too fancy. Thanks!
Surrey's Cafe has some great options, as does Whole Foods and Pho Tao Bay and Kim Son. You an also get healthy stuff at Juan's.
i live right around the corner from satsuma...on dauphine and louisa. The food is wonderfully healthy and more often than not locally sourced. They make really yummy fresh squeezed juice. it's not over-the-top expensive either, though sometimes the portions seem a little small. The quality makes it worth it, and i always feel satisfied in the end. How much does one really need to eat, anyway? plus the atmosphere is quiet and comfortable and casual and pretty and the staff is really nice. i feel really lucky to have such a good healthy option so close! check it out!
Refuel in the riverbend is a great breakfast or lunch option with plenty of fresh fruit and relatively healthy fare. In the interest of full disclosure, after being a regular there for the last three years, I am now employed there part time until I find a legal job.
