Fans headed to cheer on the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome will enjoy some new menu items this season, with a healthy twist.  

Centerplate New Orleans introduced their new food options Wednesday at the Dome. The food vendor is teaming up with Eat Fit NOLA to bring fans the healthy offerings.

Those include market fresh sandwiches, fresh kale salads, and savory seafood.

All of the items are designed to offer an alternative to the traditional game day favorites like hot dogs, popcorn, and nachos.

But fans who just want a burger and beer will still have plenty of options available. And there will be other comfort foods, like smoked root beer chicken nachos, three cheese mac and cheese and crawfish pasta.

A variety of desserts with a unique New Orleans flair include gumbo bread pudding. All of the new items are designed to give fans a tasty experience.

"The Superdome is an icon. I tell people it's like one of the Seven Wonders of the World and I really believe that," said Centerplate Executive Chef Lenny Martinson. "You can go anywhere in the world and people know where the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is. And we have a lot to look forward to. We need to deliver. This is an exciting venue, it's a fun venue, and it's a world known venue so we strive to do our best."

The first game in the Superdome kicks off against the New England Patriots Saturday at 6 p.m.
