It’s Day 231 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and Moe healthy eating is in my future for 2018. Just to clarify – I haven’t resorted to slang writing; I’m referring to Moe’s Southwest Grill and the fact that I’ll happily be eating more of it now that some have opened in the Cincinnati area (apparently they’re buying the Quadoba’s that are going bankrupt). I treated myself to it tonight after one of the best, busiest days of my life yesterday – releasing my debut novel, Seasons of Her Soul, and having it do very well on Amazon sales rankings – largely thanks to you readers! Then today was spent at Zumba, hanging out with a friend and trying to figure out what to wear to my women’s event, “Kick Up Your Negotiating Skills for Career Success”, next weekend. Finally, an hour ago I realized other than a snack at lunchtime, I hadn’t eaten all day. Making my second stop in Moe’s since I discovered it, the generous serving size allowed me to load up on fresh, healthy rice, beans, chicken and all the veggies, guacamole (a fat that’s actually good for you), and salsa my little heart desired. To make it an even better deal, the guac is free (Who does that?) and there’s complimentary salsa bar! Moe’s will be seeing a lot more of the girl from now on!
This summer, my sister and brother-in-law, who reside near Atlanta, introduced me to Moe’s (they were just in the south but are expanding) when they had the restaurant cater dinner the night family arrived from out-of-town for their son’s wedding. I loved it then and looked forward to having it when we were just there for a few days over New Year’s Eve. But for logistical reasons (and my book deadlines) it wasn’t to be. Literally craving it, I Googled it on the drive home and had my poor hubby go a few miles out-of-the-way to get it in Chattanooga. That was my first time in the restaurant where I discovered the veggies on offer: black olives, chopped cilantro, cucumbers, jalapeno peppers, and mushrooms! Then there’s the option to add as much as you want at a salsa bar. Epic! And if that isn’t enough to recommend them, the one near me, in West Chester, Ohio, has one of those cool machines that dispense every drink imaginable – only I can actually have one because they offer zero calorie choices – like gingerale with vanilla and a myriad other flavors – YUM!
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose healthy eating advocate, please see the recap below for why Moe’s is a marvelous option.
Moe’s Southwest Grill as Pink Collar Savvy & Chic Pick for Healthy Eating:
- Large portion size (More food, but good vs. bad! I eat 1 bowl 3x – initial & leftovers )
- Free quacamole (No one does that!)
- Veggies not offered at Chipotle or Hot Heads (They definitely wont’ be at Quadoba’s)
- Salsa Bar with 5 varieties (Green chile mild up to fiery hot)
- Technicolor array of zero and low calorie beverages (Refreshing water alternative)
I hope you’ll be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose and consider Moe(‘s) healthy eating in 2018!
Be savvy & chic,
~Pink Collar Coach
