With Fat Tuesday just a day away – RJ & I were contemplating delicious things to eat this week. Inspired by the legal holiday of Mardi Gras in New Orleans – we started thinking about Gumbo. And while gumbo is super delicious – it’s not very good for you. Despite it being Fat Tuesday tomorrow – we wanted to give you an option for SKINNY gumbo that you can still enjoy on Fat Tuesday in order to not feel like crap on Wednesday!
We pulled this recipe from eatingwell.com: http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/louisiana_gumbo.html
I just had it for lunch – and i have to say – it was quite tasty! At 318 calories per serving, you don’t have to feel guilty. Especially if you have plans for eating a slice of King Cake. Just remember – if you get the “baby” in your slice of cake – that means you have to make it next year! 🙂
