Most people are familiar with the traditional festivities that personify Mardi Gras in New Orleans, but the Cajun celebrations offer a unique look at the traditions that started it all.
In honor of Mardi Gras, I found a great link to a Jambalaya recipe that is not only delicious, but calorie conscious as well. At just 304 calories per serving, this is a great way to celebrate the season while watching the calories. This just proves that you can still eat those things you love while watching what you eat. And for those who are really motivated, plan a trip to Mamou next year and you can burn off a few calories as you chase a chicken for the gumbo pot! Enjoy and "Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
