My struggle with Fast food – Chipotle . . .

It’s been a struggle lately in regards to fast-food, especially when your job is a block away from Chipotle.  Mexican food has always been my fav, even though I knew I would regret it later.  All that cheese, sour cream, salsa, beans, etc. taste so good, but is not GERD or colitis friendly. Knowing all this I decided to go to Chipotle anyway for lunch. As I was standing in line, trying to figure out what combination of ingredients  will not make me suffer for the remainder of my work day, I started having bad thoughts.  As I got closer to order I was thinking; I should leave . . . I’m gonna regret this. . . . this is going to be BAD!! And then I heard, “How can I help you” . . I responded, “Yes can I have a bowl” . . . while shaking my head. I could not deny the Chipotle, so I ordered a bowl with the below items:

  • White rice
  • A little bit of Black beans
  • Chicken
  • tomatoes
  • A little bit of cheese
  • Guacamole


Taste: Of course it was delicious!

Colitis friendly: Not really, If it was just rice and chicken that would have been great for my tummy.  The tomatoes, black beans, and cheese are a no go, but I asked for less than the normal portion.  As a result my stomach wasn’t bad. Did not experience any diarrhea or bloating, so I was happy. But even if I didn’t have any tummywoes, Chipotle can be a daily meal right? 🙂
