Now usually I bring my own lunch to work, but there are definitely times when I don’t have time the night before or I just don’t have any great lunch food on hand…or I’m just plain lazy
I work in the suburbs and so there are not a lot of great restaurant options (think every fast food restaurant you could ever imagine) – not really my style and while I do enjoy Panera from time to time Chipotle has my heart. So fresh, flavorful and delicious AND I think it’s pretty easy to walk away with a healthy lunch on the go.
Here is one of my favorites from Chipotle:
Lettuce, fajita veggies, black beans, pico de gallo, medium salsa, a side of guac and sometimes chicken or steak.
I appreciate their commitment to not using dairy/meat products with antibiotics as well as beginning to implement organic beans (they are currently using organic beans in about 30% of their locations) and think they are heading fast food in the right direction. Oh and it is probably one of the only fast food restaurants that you can actually make a decent-tasting raw meal. (Lettuce, pico and guac)
I love simple, delicious food that happens to be healthy. And that's what I share here! My husband and I live in Los Angeles (but are both from the Midwest) and I work at an anti-hunger nonprofit. Read More…
