Healthy Foods From Cajun Country

When people think about New Orleans & Cajun Louisiana foods, they usually think of rich, delicious mouth-watering dishes but don't always associate it with healthy eating

However there are lots of great Louisiana foods, condiments, seasonings and spices that should be considered on a Healthy Eating menu list. Here's a few healthy items to consider...

Crawfish:
Crawfish are a great Cajun treat. And they're also very healthy! They're high in protein and minerals, and low in fat and calories. Crawfish are well within the 300-milligram daily limit of cholesterol recommended by the American Heart Association and the National Academy of Sciences. In fact, crawfish provide just a fraction of what is recommended for fat and saturated fat.

Shrimp:
Shrimp are abundant in the Louisiana gulf stream waters. And they're found in lots of New Orleans & Cajun dishes. They're also an excellent source of selenium and unusually low-fat, low-calorie protein, and less than a gram of fat. Shrimp has also emerged as a very good source of vitamin D & vitamin B12. They provide large cardiovascular benefits and, like crawfish, gulf shrimp are well within the 300-milligram recommended daily limit of cholesterol.

South Louisiana Aromatic Rice:
Try a few bags of healthy Creole Rose Aromatic Rice. In addition to it's great taste, this rice is an excellent source of folate, and a good source of iron, niacin and thiamin.

Louisiana Yams:
Louisiana Yams Certified Heart Healthy and great as a side dish. It's a Louisiana favorite - and it's grown right here in Cajun Country.

Sweet Potato Pie Filling:
Bruce's Sweet Potato Pie Filling
A Southern Treat, and great for a tasty, healthy breakfast or any time of day. They're rich in essential vitamins and minerals,
and Certified Heart Healthy by the American Heart Association

Red Beans & Rice:
Seasoned Red Beans & Creole Rose Rice
Besides being delicious, this New Orleans favorite is packed with goodness. Red beans are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber. And the high fiber content also prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal, making these beans an especially good choice for individuals with diabetes, insulin resistance or hypoglycemia. When combined with rice, red beans provide virtually fat-free high quality protein.

Spices & Mixes with No Added MSG:
The vast majority of the products that we offer don't contain MSG
We've listed below a few of our more popular Louisiana spices & seasonings where the label specifically states "NO MSG" or the ingredient list doesn't include "MSG" or "monosodium glutamate".
