I am currently preparing for "round 3" of Whole30.
Does this make me crazy? .... maybe. Or maybe just "enthusiastic"? Well... one or the other! :) Either way, expect a flood of Whole30 themed/inspired blog posts in the near future.

To start, I'm sharing with you post #1 in my "Whole30 Restaurant Guides" series. First up: Chipotle.
|also from http://www.chipotle.com/ (still not Whole30 approved)|
Chipotle has been a savior during my previous two rounds of Whole30, but I'm not sure that I avoided all of the right things. So, I've taken the guesswork out for you guys, and spent a few minutes scouring the Chipotle website for specific ingredients lists & whether they measure up to Whole30 standards.
Now, keep in mind, if you're just aiming to "eat Paleo" on an everyday basis, or are avoiding gluten, soy, etc.~ Chipotle doesn't have to be so limiting. But for Whole30 purposes, we must get serious.
I've left out the obvious (cheese, corn, beans, rice, tortillas, etc.) & broken down the rest of their more Paleo-friendly ingredients list with those that are approved (“YES”) & not approved (“NO”— with the deal-breaking ingredient).
So, if you're Whole30-ing, pick your fav's from the "YES" list, and pile 'em up however you like!
Hope this is helpful! & Let me know what restaurant you'd like to see next. :)
