Brown Rice!

Just a short news flash today: Chipotle now has brown cilantro rice!! Also, the guy who ordered in front of me today ordered a Burrito Bol with Lettuce on the bottom! On the bottom -- that means mostly greens, and all the other stuff on top, not just a little handful of greens on the top of the other food. So, for the first time, I noticed a big tin of greens at the beginning of the line and also at the end.

But back to the brown rice -- brown rice at Chipotle really made my afternoon. I know you may be rolling your eyes, thinking, "whoa, it doesn't take much," but this'll remove a bit of guilt I've had over too much white rice. Chipotle is one of the only places where a vegan/macrobiotic mom, a vegetarian daughter, a health-conscious omnivore dad and a non-health-conscious omnivore son can all find something delicious to eat. Chipotle has long been a leader in providing food that is healthier, using organics when possible and meat without bovine growth hormone, but now a brown rice option! I no longer have to feel guilty about indulging! Yippee! That's all I needed to say today.


  1. Hi Cheryl!

    I LOVE Chipotle and I'm very happy to hear about the addition of brown rice!!! So thanks for the post!

  2. You're welcome! I hope the brown rice has made it your way. If not, ask about it. We are in Alpharetta GA, just north of Atlanta.

  3. you have no idea how overjoyed i was to find that they now have brown rice!! i told everyone i know! :)

  4. We are also quite happy about the brown rice option! I am not a big chain restaurant fan, but I appreciate a quick take-out from time to time for the kiddos. Now the brown rice makes me feel better about it.
