  1. As a student attending a Terrebonne Parish High School I can honestly say that this healthy "twist" on local cuisine is horrible and almost to the point of inedible. I am throwing half of the food on my plate. I am a 135 lb. male. I need to be gaining weight not starve to death at school. Don't even mention breakfast. The meat is disgusting.
