Eating Vegan at Moe’s Southwest Grill

This post is sponsored by Moe’s Southwest Grill; however all thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. 

Whenever someone asks me if eating plant-based is hard I alway reply with an immediate no. Of course not. I love my lifestyle and I wouldn’t change a thing.

But if I’m being completely honest, eating out is hard. Depending on where you live, it can be challenging to find restaurants that offer vegan options. Or restaurants that take the time to think about what you need nutritionally to feel satisfied without incorporating animal products.

I’m looking at you bland salad.

The most frustrating of all is when they tell you they can create something “off-menu” and you get a collection of side items that somehow ends up costing more than their $30 filet. Ugh.

Needless to say, I’m grateful when I discover that a national franchise like Moe’s Southwest Grill has taken the time to consider people of all diets. Whether you’re vegan, gluten-free, paleo, or keto, Moe’s allows you to customize your meal to what suits you best as an individual. And with over 700 restaurants across the United States, you can almost always count on finding a locally owned and operated location to help you get a quick and nourishing meal.

When it comes to plant-based options, you can customize the burritos, tacos, nachos, quesadillas, bowls or salads. You could even make them gluten-free or grain-free if you want!

A few of our plant-based favorites on their menu include the whole wheat burrito stuffed with tofu, black beans, cilantro rice, grilled vegetables and mushrooms, and pico de gallo. Yum.

Along with the soft tacos topped with black beans, seasoned rice, grilled veggies, more grilled mushrooms (duh), cabbage, corn salsa, and tangy pickled onions.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for pretty pickled onions.

In addition to over 20 fresh and flavorful toppings to help you customize your meal, their salsa and guacamole is prepared from scratch daily. Brandon loves spicy food so he freaked out when he saw that they have Carolina Reaper salsa. I personally go for the tomatillo salsa which on the mild side. And extra guacamole, of course.

Whether you’re on the road or too busy to cook at home, Moe’s is a great option no matter what your dietary needs are. If you’d like to learn more about how you can customize your meals, you can check out the special diets page by clicking HERE.
