New Year’s resolution: Lose weight, eat (king) cake
(Teddi Taylor)

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Mardi Gras season tends to derail our New Year’s efforts to eat better and lose weight but this year, Ochsner Eat Fit is helping out with the launch of their new dietitian-approved Eat Fit King Cake.

Eat Fit King Cake is available now in Baton Rouge at Alexander’s Highland Market.

WHERE TO FIND EAT FIT KING CAKE

  • Alexander’s Highland Market
  • 18111 Highland Rd.
  • Baton Rouge

Molly Kimball, registered dietitian and founder of Ochsner Eat Fit worked closely with John Caluda of Caluda’s Cottage Catering to develop the Eat Fit King Cake.

EAT FIT KING CAKE

  • 12  oz Mini Bundt-Style King Cake
  • Packaged  in a specially-designed Eat Fit King Cake box
  • Six  two-ounce servings per king cake 

This king cake is centered on an all-natural clean ingredient label made with almond flour, coconut flour and Greek yogurt. It’s sweetened with Swerve, a natural, plant-based sweetener based in New Orleans, with no artificial sweeteners or food dyes.

NUTRITION INFORMATION

  • Gluten  Free, Grain Free, Soy Free 
  • Keto,  Low Carb, No Sugar Added 
  • Eat  Fit approved 
  • No  artificial sweeteners or colors

According to Eat Fit, the feedback from tasting panels has been overwhelmingly positive – with many being unaware of such nutritious changes to the recipe. The use of almond and coconut flour gives the Eat Fit King Cake the appearance and texture of a regular white king cake. Thanks to the addition of Greek yogurt, it’s also incredibly moist, more like a pound cake meets king cake.
