Yesterday, after a massive morning of painting, we decided to take our quick half hour lunch break. We were in need of something quick and relatively substantial as we still had the whole afternoon of painting ahead of us. Although the boys weren’t too worried, I of course was on the hunt for something relatively healthy. When the boys suggested Chipotle Mexican Grill, I headed to their website hoping that they would have their menu uploaded so that I could choose what was to be the healthiest option on their menu. Better than just their menu they had an entire “nutrition tab” which was dedicated to their menu and options. I was able to select what item I wanted: in my case a burrito bowl and then add my toppings of meat, veggies, beans etc including their full selection of sauces, cheeses, dressing etc which allowed me to not only have my exact order ready to go when I arrived in store, but I could choose items that would suit my eating plan.
So when we arrived at Chipotle in Westerville, the boys ordered steak burritos whilst I ordered a chicken burrito bowl with pinto beans, fajita vegetables, fresh tomato salsa and fresh lettuce leaves. My burrito bowl was a total of 340 calories with 8.5g F | 30g C | 40g P and all for less than $7.
The ladies behind the counter were fast, efficient and friendly also. I feel that they were generous with their servings and my meal left me feeling satisfied and happy that I hadn’t had to sacrifice my nutrition plan for a delicious and quick “fast food” option.
