Fast food is seductive; it comes in large quantities, cheap prices and delicious aromas and tastes. However, that bang for your buck can explode your diet and get you off track. Sometimes fast food can’t be avoided, but the massive amounts of calories that frequently come with it can be. Check out our Moe's Southwest Grill menu under 500 calories.
With Moe's, you have a couple delicious options.
Chicken Junior Burrito: It may be called a "junior burrito," but nothing about this burrito is small. The whole-wheat tortilla is still 10 inches in diameter, which leaves plenty of room for the filling. Speaking of, let's pile on some chicken, onions, cilantro, seasoned rice, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, grilled peppers and shredded cheese. That leaves us at 411 calories: plenty of room to add some of their handmade guacamole if you want it. With the guac, the "junior" burrito comes to 441 calories.

Burrito Bowl: For the carb-conscious. The burrito bowl allows you to enjoy more of your proteins and veggies without having to worry too much about your carbohydrate intake. With chicken, seasoned rice, onions, cilantro, tomatoes, grilled peppers, lettuce and pico de gallo, your burrito bowl reaches 434 calories.
Beverage: The obvious healthy drink here is water, but Moe's also offers Minute Maid Light at just 15 calories per serving, or diet soda at zero calories.
