Lunch Option 2: Steak Fajita Wraps

Restaurant Meal: Moe's "Fat Sam" Fajitas―$8.99
Homemade Alternative: Southwestern Steak, Corn, and Black Bean Wraps―$1.87

Our delicious spin on steak fajitas will work for nearly every budget. Plus, they've got just 327 calories and 10.4 grams of fat (4.7 grams saturated) per serving. Compare that to the aptly named "Fat Sam" steak fajitas at Moe's: 1,591 calories, 86 grams of fat (31.3 saturated), and 4,306mg sodium if you opt for rice, black beans, queso, sour cream, chipotle ranch, guacamole, pico de gallo, and veggies.
