If you have not already heard (I watched it on Oprah) Chipotle is starting a healthy fast food movement!!!!! According to founder Steve Ellis, Chipotle uses “unprocessed, seasonal, family-farmed, sustainable, nutritious, naturally raised, added hormone free, organic, and artisanal” products. And now that I thought I couldn’t love them any more, they’ve gone ahead and introduced a VEGAN MEAT OPTION!!!!!! Soooooooooooo EXCITED!!!!
The new menu item, called “Garden Blend,” is made by the company Gardein. According to Gardein, their plant-based meat substitute is made from soy, wheat and pea proteins, vegetables and ancient grains (quinoa, amaranth, millet and kamut). What an amazing addition to Chipotle’s menu!
This new Garden Blend hasn’t been introduced at all Chipotle locations yet so please go to their website www.chipotle.com and click the button that says SPEAK and send them a comment to let them know that we want Garden blend in all of the LA locations.
