Let me start by saying that die hard Paleo dieters may be put off by this post. While researching this topic I found that Chipotle does use rice bran oil and soy bean oil in most of its meats while marinating and/or cooking. If you fit in this category then your only safe option is the carnitas which is the only soy free option on the menu besides the veggies.
For those who are a little less strict with the Paleo lifestyle Chipotle makes a good choice when dining out. The best choice is a burrito bowl which eliminates an obvious no-no…tortillas. The bowl is made up of a protein and any number of add-ons. I recommend the following choices:
- Fajita mix
- Mild Salsa
- Med/Hot Salsa
This is a really tasty combination and will definitely fill you up. Give it a try next time you are in a crunch and I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
