Is Chipotle As Healthy As It Seems?

Chipotle, it’s the chain food restaurant that has everyone going absolutely nuts! Known for their motto of serving food with “integrity”, Chipotle has found a cult following of people that are head over heels for the restaurant, happy to finally migrate from less favorable choices like McDonald’s. The restaurant itself is environmentally friendly and health conscious, as they source their meat from organic suppliers that do not use antibiotics in their animals. However, with all of the hype surrounding the restaurant, many have begun wondering just how healthy the restaurant is. The New York Times decided to look into the healthiness of the restaurant and found some pretty shocking information.

The recommended caloric intake for the average adult is between 1,600 and 2,400. At Chipotle, however, many of the meal’s are filled with more than 1,000 calories and chock full of more sodium than one actually needs. The New York Times found that a typical meal at Chipotle is roughly 1,070 calories – as they look into the usual burrito orders of many of the customers which includes cheese, salsa, beans, rice, and sour cream. Once you’ve piled on the toppings onto your burrito you’ve also piled on the calories. If you are looking to cut the caloric intake at Chipotle in half, you can opt for a cheese free meal, or skip the burrito altogether and order a burrito bowl.

Although The New York Times is not attempting to discredit Chipotle altogether, it is important that we are all aware of our food choices.
