Confession: I have a major obsession with Chipotle.

Please don’t stop reading if you don’t love Chipotle, or if you don’t have one near you, or if you simply think I’m ridiculous.

I love Chipotle because I care about what food I put in my body. I love them because I am often too lazy to cook and want something I know isn’t junk. I love them because it’s one of the best and easiest gluten free restaurants. I love them because of their management and leadership model. But I really love them because it tastes great.

What I want you to take away from this email is that food matters.

I want you to care about doing some research about what restaurants are using for their food.

How many “fast” food restaurants talk about where their meat comes from, how the farmers are treating their animals, or whether their food has GMO’s?

I also rely on Chipotle as my pre-race food. When I am going to an event or racing the next day – I use it as my fuel. Rice (carbs) Chicken (protein) Fajita Veggies (veggies), Salsa (yum), a little cheese (also yum), and GUAC (DUH!!! for healthy fats). I know that I can eat this before an event and it will sit well in my stomach because the ingredients are sourced well, prepared without gross oil, and are fresh.

So I ask you – when you go out to eat (if you do) where are you going? Do you know what they are using? And how does it make you feel?
