Healthiest fast food ?

April 21, 2011 § Leave a comment

Chipotle.  Only question is what to order.

This Mexican style restaurant uses quality, fresh  ingredients and tastes good. Most of our meat supply has been tainted with unethical treatment of the animals, using very questionable nutritional procedures, and as a result treating our animals with antibiotics and growth hormones.  It appears as though Chipotle is doing their best to use quality, organic meat from local farms. ( A link has been provided referring to these methods)  Plus, ordering and paying for a take-out meal on your iphone is pretty cool.

What I recommend is a chicken or beef bowl with sour creme, black beans, and guacamole.

Monounsaturated 0 g Sugars 0 g

Vitamin A 0% Calcium 0%
Vitamin C 0% Iron 0%

All the carbs here are slow digesting/ complex carbs,healthy fats, and protein, which is always good.

Cheese and lettuce can also be thrown in for an extra 120 calories of fat or so.  (Don’t be afraid of fat!!)

Now don’t ruin it by grabbing chips or regular soda.
