Is there a Whole30 Compliant Chipotle Order? Can I eat out at all when I’m on a Whole30? When you’re doing a Whole30, you are probably cooking and eating IN a lot more than you did before you started.
What I find typically happens is you get a pent-up feeling, and you just want to eat out SOMEWHERE… ANYWHERE!
That’s why I’m here to help!
Eating out while on Whole30 can be hard for a few reasons… Firstly, most restaurants don’t disclose their ingredient lists online. Some do have allergen lists, so you at least know if something has gluten or dairy. But that’s not enough to know if it has off-limits preservatives, oils that are off-limits, sneaky sugars, and the list goes on!
Secondly, it can be hard to remember what kinds of questions to ask the server… Or, there’s even the chance that the server/ cook doesn’t even know if some of the food is pre-made.
It can be hard for me personally to recommend restaurants to you, because I don’t know what’s locally available to you! So I decided to start sharing with you Whole30 finds at national chains that are likely available close to you! Even if you don’t have a Chipotle near you, you may travel and find one, or hopefully another post like this one will resonate with you!
If you have any particular restaurants you’d like to see included in my list of Whole30 Compliant finds at Restaurants, let me know in the comments below!
One of my favorite places to eat out while we’re doing a Whole30 is Chipotle! This is also an important restaurant to start with, because I think a lot of people assume all of the meats are compliant, but they surprisingly aren’t! All of the meats at Chipotle except for the carnitas are actually cooked in rice bran oil, which isn’t compliant for your Whole30.
Note that none of the Chipotle salad dressings are compliant, also because of the rice bran oil that they use.
As far as Whole30 compliant drinks at Chipotle, you’re pretty limited. Most Chipotles serve unsweetened ice tea, which is Whole30 compliant. You can also always get water!
I hope this helps you navigate Chipotle on your Whole30! Be sure to share below other restaurants where you’d like to see me offer Whole30 Compliant options.
