Eating Heart Healthy at Ninja Restaurant

November 9, 2017

On our Nov. 1st show, we focused on heart health in recognition of the American Heart Association's (AHA) New Orleans Heart Walk on Nov. 11. The AHA recommends eating fish, at least twice a week, to benefit from the heart healthy fats it provides, so that’s why we didn’t skip a beat when inviting the General Manager and Chef of Ninja Restaurant, Ricky Toy and Eat Fit NOLA Ambassador, Emily Eickhoff (pictured) to demonstrate some of the  popular New Orleans sushi and Japanese restaurant's favorites. 


Below is a recipe for one of several nutritious and delicious EatFitNola dishes that appears on Ninja's menu. We hope you enjoy it!
