For the rest of the month I'll be eating a strictly Vegan diet.
Wait... They serve Vegan food at Chipotle?
Yeah, I know. I spend so much time talking about the delicious meat and doubling up on the Barbacoa that sometimes I forget there are other options. One of the things I respect about Chipotle is the diversity of diets it can accommodate. The simple menu options allow people with various diets and belief systems to eat healthy and sustainably produced food all under one roof.
But, it's too hard to be Vegan...
Normally I would avoid even considering a vegan diet. I always worry about getting enough protein to keep up with my exercise regiment. Before I started eating at Chipotle my Vegan friends would constantly complain about the difficulty of finding Vegan friendly restaurants, especially when you have a busy lifestyle.
My friend Dan resorted to eating onion rings and a lot of junk foods that may have been friendlier to animals, but not very friendly to his own body.
So when this opportunity came along I decided that I could give the Vegan lifestyle a try. Chipotle kind of eliminated most of my excuses and I think it's important to try things before you can accurately form an opinion.
But, what if I miss the texture and juicy flavor of meat? read the rest to find out how Chipotle squashed my last attempt to weasel out of this whole Vegan thing...
