NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Shhh, there’s an Eat Fit Hidden Menu at Jazz Fest this year!  You won’t find these specific Eat Fit combos on menu boards at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival presented by Shell, but you can find the full hidden menu on the Eat Fit smartphone app (it’s free!).

Because we get it, not everyone wants to eat nutritiously at festivals – but those who can find full dish details and nutrition facts on the free Eat Fit mobile app, available for Apple and Android devices.

Here’s how it works: Most of the Eat Fit dishes fit as-is, and for a few, simply ask these vendors for dishes to be prepared “Eat Fit” style and they’ll serve up a plate with no white carbs that’s centered on lean proteins, vegetables and plant-based fats, essentially dishing up the best parts, nutritionally speaking, of their quintessential Jazz Fest fare.
