Most places won't let you use gift cards to buy gift cards.

However, when I inquired about other ingredients, I was very disappointed to learn they actually use a small amount of trans fat in their tortillas, their bacon contains sodium nitrite, and soybean oil is used in many items. Soybean oil is far from being "sustainable" as the vast majority is GMO and heavily sprayed with pesticides. Why they would ruin good quality food with this stuff is beyond me.

Vegetable oil ruins good quality food? Come now lets take a step back, I suppose they could use an alternative but I'd hardly say it ruins anything. It is interesting however that vegetable oil can be used as a form of a pesticide itself.

Maybe ruin is going too far. Some oils are better than others. The biggest offenders are the big ag ones like soybean, corn, and cottonseed which are heavily processed (extracted at high temperatures using chemical solvents). Also, the omega-3:omega-6 ratio for these oils is heavily skewed to the omega-6 side which promotes inflammation (people generally consume way too many omega-6 fats these days).

You do understand that your body produces an isomerase enzyme that converts trans fat into cis-fat and the other way around as needed, right? Unless you know that you're deficient in that enzyme, I wouldn't worry about it.
No I don't understand that because it's not true. This may be the first time I've witnessed someone saying trans fat is nothing to worry about. Note that I'm referring to the artificial kind, not the naturally occurring form in dairy/meat.

Hit the biochem book. You'll find out great many useful things there.
BTW, what's the difference between "artificial" trans-fat and "naturally" occurring fat there as far as your metabolism goes? You'll find an answer to that question in there too. bounce

I figured you had some type of science background. There's a big difference. Do you really think firing hydrogen into cottonseed oil yields the same exact substance as the naturally occurring trans fat in ground beef? Science is still extremely young especially in the field of nutrition. If they are the same, why does everyone (except for you, apparently) unanimously agree that it's best to avoid artificial trans fat but a good quality milk is considered part of a healthy diet?

Sorry to break it to you, but it's likely worse calorie-wise compared to other fast food chains.
Not sure where you're getting your info for this...

A burrito bowl runs ~750 calories Source [chipotlefan.com]

A big mac meal (sandwich + large fry) runs ~1050 calories. Source [mcdonalds.com]

A difference of over 30%... and I would argue the Chipotle is more filling. The only thing that Chipotle could really improve is getting a drive through!

Bought 12 of these last year during the holiday season. Just finished out the last of them this month. Time to start the year of burrito bowls allll over again!
me too! In fact, I started keeping them all in my car at first but then got paranoid that someone would steal my car. I didn't want to lose $360 worth of gift cards. Time to re-up it, and maybe hit for $500-$600 of gift cards this time!

So lets say you're hired to consult at Chipotle and they ask you what oil they should use - what is your response? I use various olive oils at home depending on what I'm using it for, heat level, etc. Also what would you use to fry? I usually use a little bit of oil or melted butter when making rice.

Good question. I would use some form of olive oil (#1 choice), peanut oil (minimally processed, expeller pressed), or at the least canola oil as long it is non-GMO and expeller pressed. The problem Chipotle faces is using a fat that is vegan friendly which rules out butter. For frying, I'd use the traditional fats like lard, tallow, or virgin coconut oil, assuming they are non-hydrogenated. Of course all of these are more expensive that refined vegetable oil so the change would raise prices, but consumers have already demonstrated they are willing to spend more for higher quality food.
