I'll be in New Orleans for a couple days at the end of July. I've recently lost 50 pounds on Weight Watchers and still have a long way to go. I adore food, so being in my favorite food city and having to forgo many delicious things is going to be a challenge!! And before you say "You're crazy!! Just hop off the wagon for a few days!", I'll just say that losing the weight has not been easy and I'm not willing to lose momentum. Believe me - I know what I'm giving up!
We're staying at the Blake Hotel, just outside the Quarter and I'm looking for places with good grilled seafood options, great and interesting vegetable dishes, creative salads, but that won't feel like "deprivation dining" to my companions. This is part of a work trip that is mostly centered in the CBD/French Quarter, without a lot of time to explore too far afield. I also need to be reasonably social and will likely get dragged to some of the touristy spots that aren't exactly WW friendly, so being armed with some alternatives would be really helpful.
Any thoughts? Who's got the best cold seafood platter in town? What's going to be at the peak of its season in terms of fruits and vegetables?
Thank you for any and all assistance. I am determined to get to a healthy weight without sacrificing deliciousness and you Hounds always come through for me!!
