I’m tired of the plastic toys that come with the so-called Happy Meals and end up filling space in the playroom collecting dust because the initial excitement has worn off. I’m tired of the grease and salt loaded fries. I’m tired of lumps of fried chicken that they call chicken nuggets. I’m tired of the flat burgers and wondering what is actually in the beef.
If you also are tired of any or all of the above. I have a solution for you: Chipotle Mexican Grill!

My family LOVES Chipotle. Not only is the food amazing, but it is also healthy. I feel good about taking my kids to this fast food restaurant. One of their slogans is ‘Slow Food, Fast!’ Pulled pork and slow cooked chicken. All the chicken, beef and pork comes from local farms and is raised antibiotic free and on a vegetarian diet. The fresh ingredients are cooked infront of the restaurant in an open kitchen with nothing to hide. Fresh, organic veggies heaped onto burritos or burrito bowls:

This is what I had for lunch one day. I actually was so full that I didn’t even eat dinner. Delicious. Brown rice with chicken, corn, black beans, shredded cheese.
The kid’s meal includes a quesadilla (or tacos), black beans or pinto beans, cilantro lime rice (they offer brown as well now) and freshly made chips and choice of drink (we usually opt for organic chocolate milk). All this food and cheaper and tastier than a McDonald’s Happy Meal.
