// making choices / chipotle//

image

When I did Weight Watcher’s for 2 months, a couple years ago,
it really taught me about paying attention to choices.

Eliminating calorific / fatty things, when they aren’t worth it.
And, as mentioned, ultimately my cravings and tastes dramatically
changed to most often wanting just the good stuff.

An example from a lunch last week : CHIPOTLE.
Great fast food.
Fresh ingredients, better meats, everything prepared on site.

I usually go for the veggie bowl.
The first step they ask is "what kind of rice?"
No rice!!!
(I also eliminate rice in tacos at, say, Taco Cabana, etc.)
The rice’s only real function is to soak up juice.
Meanwhile, adding carbs and calories.
They will be more careful to drain juices in your scoops,
if you pass on the rice.

So, my veggie bowl goes :
                    • MIXED BEANS (both black and pinto yum protein)
                    • SEASONED VEGGIES (peppers and onions)
                    • PICO DE GALLO
                    • SALSA’s (both)
                    • SOUR CREAM (ask for drizzle, they’ll glop if you let ‘em)
                    • GUACAMOLE ($1.80 to add, comes free w. veggie bowl!)
                    • LETTUCE
                    • $6.25!!

If you are screaming - No cheese in mexican?!
How can you skip an offer of cheese? An abomination!
You won’t miss it because there is already so much going on.
Wait for the next time you have a cheese-centric dish.
This isn’t that.

Everything else in the bowl (except the drizzle of sour cream)
is nutrients! flavor! texture!

Delightful.

Do you make any adjustments at fave spots?

Last week I wanted some veggie chili.
Too bad all the places with a delicious version are gastropubs
that don’t open until evening.

So, I made some!

Remember when I mentioned the only place you should be buying your basil is Jimmy’s?

Well, you should also be buying your garlic there.

// potager cafe / farm to table//

A guy I sat next to on a plane last year told me about this place.

Potager Cafe in Arlington.

Finally headed to the Dallas suburb
to try it out.
