I have become a big fan of Chipotle Mexican Grill over the years as a "healthy fast-food option" - but it wasn't until recently that I took the time to read the nutrition info so I could make better choices when I go there.
First & Foremost: SKIP THE CHIPS! 570 calories & 27 grams of fat in one of those cute little bags!!!!
You really can order a very healthy & satisfying meal while cutting out the extra calories & fat but without losing the great taste. And, the portions are generous so you will be full!
So much of the flavor is already cooked into the meat - so SKIP the rice, cheese, sour cream & guacamole--you'll be much better off!
I opt for the Burrito Bowl with Chicken - SKIP THE TORTILLA! It'll save you 290 calories & 9 grams of fat! - Truly an extra meal in itself! Plus, who needs all that flour & the extra carbs..??!! SKIP IT - YOU WON'T MISS IT!
My Simply Delicious Burrito Bowl:
- 1/2 serving size of black beans [really cuts down on the sodium!]
- 1/2 serving size of tomato salsa [also cuts down sodium]
- Lots of Lettuce
