Zoe you think you can't cook?

Are there days you JUST DON'T want to step foot in the kitchen? Me too... 

And that's why I just had to tell you about such an AWESOME restaurant that I am falling in love with, more and more each day. It's called Zoe's Kitchen. So far they are only located in the South and in Arizona (sorry everyone else because you are REALLY missing out!). Houston Metropolitan area has 6 locations, so I can pretty much depend on being able to get it when I want.

 So anyways, you are probably wondering WHY I am talking about them so much. Well, here is the thing... most restaurants can boast healthy options and fresh eating and their menu will definitely reflect it. But then you decide to bring your munchkins with you and you are bombarded with options like pizza, mac and cheese, spaghetti and meatballs or chicken fingers with fries. Whaaaa?!?!?!!? Are you serious? Sometimes I get very frustrated with the idea some restaurants have of "they are just kids". It's super important for us parents to establish healthy eating habits in our kids, so we should be paying extra special attention to what they eat!

And that's where Zoe's Kitchen definitely has us covered! With kid options such as fresh fruit cup, GRILLED chicken fingers, GRILLED turkey and cheese and no sign ANYWHERE of fried food on the menu, its a mothers delight! Our children look to us to guide them in the right direction until they are old enough to make their own choices.  So, knowing that I have a healthy, quick and inexpensive option on days that cooking a meal is the LAST thing on my list definitely makes me feel like I am doing a better job being a parent. I know my little man's body, brain, stomach, and taste development thank me now and will continue to thank me as he grows (high fat, high carb foods are addictive and can lead to serious side-effect, so its definitely a road you want to avoid.)

Plus it helps that they have THE BEST chocolate chip cookie (hey, being healthy doesn't mean that you can't enjoy a treat once in a while!)

PS: Zoe's in NO way contacted me for this post. I just love 'em and hope you will too!

  1. I work in The Woodlands, and I see one up there on the map! I'm a huge advocate of eating real, whole food, and it makes me happy that Zoe's Kitchen serves REAL food to kids. It definitely makes me want to support them with my patronage! I'll have to check them out!

    1. There sure is! Try it out and let me know what you think :)


I love receiving your thoughts! I read each and every one and try to answer them as well. Thanks for taking the time :)
