Chipotle is jumping on fact that 71% of New Year’s resolutions focus on diet and eating healthier. This week, they launched a line of “Lifestyle Bowls” that fit the macros of some popular lifestyles like Paleo, Whole30 and of course, Keto. I love that they call them “Lifestyle” bowls – acknowledging that these are not trends or fad diets, but that their customers were custom creating bowls to fit their lifestyle.
Their Keto Salad Bowl comes with carnitas, romaine lettuce, red salsa, cheese and guacamole. When we tried to estimate macros for this Chipotle Keto Salad Bowl in MyFitnessPal, we came up with:
- 362 calories
- 21g fat
- 9g net carbs
- 25g protein
I would probably add sour cream to this to get the fat count higher, however this isn’t a bad option on the go.
What do you think about restaurants offering “lifestyle” specific options on their menu? I think we still need to look at the macros and not blindly believe a food or meal is “Keto” – but I welcome restaurants trying to make it easier for us to select items on their menu that do work!
