Food Substitutions: Chipotle

Many of my friends love Chipotle and the large burritos that come with it. Who doesn’t? Sadly, for those dieting or watching their caloric intake for various reasons, these delectable items often can’t be consumed. A steak burrito with pinto beans, sour cream, cheese, lettuce, rice, and tomato salsa comes to 975 calories!

Yikes!

Fortunately, there are options. I suggest getting hard tacos – my typical order is the steak tacos with corn salsa, fajita vegetables, and cheese. It comes to 570 calories with 44 grams of protein – approximately 24% of my daily alloted calories and 19% of my target protein intake for the day. Not bad!
