Finally, some good news!

Small good, but good nonetheless.

I was reading Emmie's latest entry, which mentions her taking her boys to lunch at Chipotle. I love Chipotle. A lot. So much I feel a little guilty about it, seeing as they are owned by McDonald's an all. But as far as I knew, they had no restaurants in greater Boston, so I only ever got to eat there when I was traveling. On a whim, I decided to check their website and see if they'd made any inroads into this area.

THREE RESTAURANTS IN STRIKING DISTANCE!!!

OMG, OMG, OMG!!!

Of course I find this out just as I start Weight Watchers again. I'm off to their website again to check nutrition info and see what I can have for lunch today.

I am a HUGE Chipotle lover and even own stock (which is doing great by the way.) So I wanted to reassure you that McDonalds got out of the Chipotle business. They are now on their own again. While McDonalds owned them they expanded a ton and then McDonalds realized they didn't quite fit into their portfolio or something like that. So please feel free to eat there guilt free! Except for the WW thing... not too sure about the guilt there :)

Never heard of it.

I had never heard of them either, but their menu looks way good. I'll have to check out the one in Meffa sometime.

I'm on WW, and I usually get a chicken burrito with black beans and some of the other toppings. It's a lot of points if you eat the whole thing, but I just make sure to cut it in half before I even start, and then it's borderline reasonable. I find myself wanting to eat a couple more bites after I finish that first half, but if I wait a few minutes, I realize I'm full and life is good. Chipotle is a weekend ritual in our house.

I JUST ate there on Saturday!! LOVE a veggie burrito bol. (No burrito) The rice is worth the trip! ENJOY every bite and don't forget the guac! Good for the oil requirement for WW isn't it?

Hey Snick... Check out Dottie's Web site. It was a daily stop for me when I was on WW. http://www.dwlz.com/restaurants.html

Scroll all the way down to the listings and you will see Chipolte. This lists the meu items, nutritional info and points for many eateries. Ole!

We live in the Boston area too, and are so psyched that Chipotle is now in Everett AND now open in Porter Square! I had a baby over the weekend (when the Porter Square was having a grand opening) and we almost stopped on our way to the hospital to grab a burrito!

I was about to tell you about Dottie (www.dwlz.com) but someone beat me to it. It's the best.thing.ever when you're on WW. She's done all the work for you! I also love me some Chipotle! :)
