ask the nutritionist: favorite fast food

CHIPOTLE!

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)

    Like Michal, I've heard alot about Chipotle lately. I'm not a huge fan, and here's why. If you don't like onions, you're basically out of luck. It's nearly impossible to order something that doesn't have onions in it. And big chunky onions at that. Gr!

    Holly – so good to hear! I just visited your site earlier today but didn't realize it was you! Nice to meet you! :)

    Michal – You need to try out Chipotle, i don't even consider it fast food, it is that good!

    Mrs. Meyers – I guess I never thought of that because I don't mind onions but if you are not a fan it probably isn't the place to go! :( Too bad!
