30 Bananas a Day!

Hey everyone hope youre having as magnificent of a day as I am!

I recently saw a youtube video Freelee posted about this girl talking about Chipotle and how a bunch of vegans were outside protesting.

I have been doing raw til 4 very consistently lately and one thing that I have been doing for my last meal is going to chipotle and getting two burritos (white rice, pinto beans, mild salsa, corn salsa, and lettuce).  It very delicious.

Ive been wanting to stop RT4 and just go raw for at least a whole month but these burritos are just soo good.. (lots of salt though..)  

The video made me think.. should I even be supporting chipotle??

I know that it would be better to put my money into vegan restaurants but there really arent that many.. maybe one.. in a 30 mile radius of me.  

Id like to hear your guys' thoughts on this. Thanks.

Chipotle actually stopped using pig in their pinto beans in Fall of 2013. They are now 100% vegan. When this first happened they actually had signs up letting people know that their pinto beans changed to be vegan.

Ingredients-  http://www.chipotle.com/en-US/menu/ingredients_statement/ingredient...

Vegan info at bottom of page - http://www.chipotle.com/en-US/menu/special_diet_information/special...

Having worked as a cook in restaurants I am wary to get anything at a restaurant that serves meat. There is undoubtedly cross contamination and raw meat bugs getting into everything. 

Good Im glad you said that!  You may have just "cured" me of my chipotle kick that Im on.. which is what I want haha thanks bro

I personally don't eat at chipotle because it's so salty and more fatty than you'd expect (compared to homemade), and I'm grossed out by the potential cross contamination.

But, I do think it's important to create more of a demand for vegan options from mainstream companies, so if you feel like having chipotle once in a while, do it. If I were traveling or whatever situation where I couldn't eat food I prepared, I would totally eat at chipotle because I know I can get something vegan there. :)

Word.  

Thats a really good point as well Thanks for the reply! 

And thanks everyone else who replied it has helped me out a lot

The more opinions the merrier.  Here's a past info piece:

Any idea why they were protesting? There are no vegan places in my area either, the closest one is almost an hour away. I used to go to Chipotle a lot, we also have a local burrito place here I go to that has vegan chili ...but it is a lot cheaper just to make it at home. My only challenge is we have ONE store that carries tortillas that are not made with complete crap and that's kind of far from me but everything else is pretty easy to find/make.

Veganic, the rice and tortillas are vegan as well. My boyfriend works at Chipotle and knows this for fact. :)
