Last week-end, my husband and I took a rode trip to Florida to visit my sister and her family. We left Friday before rush hour, so we needed to stop to get something to eat. As I was already a bit anxious about what kind of food choices would be available all week-end, I was dead-set determined to eat healthy on the road – regardless of what I had to do. So, we stopped at a Moe’s Southwest Grill in Montgomery, AL. I had already decided to avoid the rice and the tortilla, so the only thing I could eat was salad (without the shell). Since I’m trying to cut back on the amount of meat and dairy I eat (due to the hormones), this left me with tofu as my only remaining alternative. So, basically my salad consisted of lettuce, cucumbers, tofu (which I’m not sure was even cooked), VERY little cheese, black beans, and salsa. I had a little chipotle sauce on the side, but that didn’t help. Basically, there was NOTHING on this salad to make it taste good at all. Literally, as I write this I feel like vomiting just thinking about it. My husband sat there and watched my face turn a lovely shade of pale green and felt so sorry for me that he cut off large parts of his “homewrecker” tortilla just so I would have something to eat!
So, the moral of the story is sometimes there really ARE no healthy choices that are palatable, so you just have to do the best you can and resume your routine as soon as possible. I have to say that I’m glad to be home and in control of what I cook and put in my mouth!
