How to Order a Healthy and Low-Calorie Meal at Chipotle

If you’re a fan of Chipotle, but worried about the calorie count, don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to order a healthy and low-calorie meal! Here are some tips to help you make a healthier choice next time you visit:

*In our upcoming upcoming 28-day Drop a Size Challenge, we help you map out a plan specific to YOU so that you can reach your nutrition goals quickly and easily, and still do things like eat at Chipolte! Reply directly to this email to learn more.

  1. Choose your base carefully: Instead of going for the traditional white rice, try brown rice or the healthier option of lettuce or mixed greens. They are lower in calories and provide more nutrients and fiber.
  2. Opt for lean proteins: While Chipotle’s meats are delicious, they can be high in fat and calories. Instead, choose the leaner options like grilled chicken or tofu.
  3. Load up on veggies: Vegetables are high in nutrients and low in calories, so pile them on!  Adding these will increase the fiber, vitamins and minerals of your meal, without adding too many calories.
  4. Watch your toppings: Sour cream and cheese can be high in fat and calories. If you must have cheese, opt for a small serving of cheese. Salsas and hot sauces are great options to add flavor to your food without the extra calories.
  5. Skip the chips: While it may be tempting to indulge in a side of chips, it’s best to skip them altogether. They are high in calories and provide little nutritional value.

Remember, just because you’re eating out doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your health goals. By making a few simple swaps and being mindful of your choices, you can enjoy a delicious and healthy meal at Chipotle. Happy eating!

The Importance of Mindful Eating for Men and Women Over 40

As we age, our metabolism slows down, and our bodies become less efficient at burning calories. This makes it more challenging to maintain a healthy weight and stay in shape. However, one simple habit that can help both men and women over 40 is mindful eating.

*** I’m excited to announce that Leah Morgan, owner of Core Balance Yoga Center and KCYTT trainer, and I will be partnering to host a Mindful Eating Workshop! This special event is for anyone who is looking to mend their relationship with food to experience true healing, joy, and liberation. If you are interested, please reply with the words “MINDFUL EATING” and you will be added to a list of potential participants. ***

Mindful eating is the practice of paying attention to the food we eat, how much we eat, and how it affects our body and mind. It’s about being present and fully engaged in the eating experience, without distractions like TV, phone, or work. When we eat mindfully, we become more aware of our hunger and satiety signals, and we can make better food choices based on our nutritional needs and preferences.
Here are some reasons why mindful eating is crucial for men and women over 40:

  1. Promotes better digestion: Mindful eating helps our body to digest food properly by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for rest and digestion. When we eat mindfully, we chew our food more slowly and thoroughly, allowing our digestive enzymes to work more efficiently.
  2. Reduces overeating: Overeating is a common problem for many people over 40, leading to weight gain, bloating, and other health issues. Mindful eating helps us to tune in to our body’s hunger and fullness signals, so we can avoid overeating and feel satisfied with smaller portions.
  3. Enhances food enjoyment: Eating should be a pleasurable experience, not a chore. Mindful eating encourages us to savor the flavors, textures, and aromas of our food, and to appreciate the sensory experience of eating. This can help us to enjoy our food more and reduce the tendency to overeat or indulge in unhealthy snacks.

In conclusion, mindful eating is a simple but powerful tool that can help both men and women over 40 to maintain a healthy weight, improve digestion, and enhance their overall relationship with food.
