I would probably say the carnitas is the best option to avoid gmos and some lettuce. However, packing food is another option. It may not be a question, but its a good read for everybody who doesn't know about chipolte.

I wouldn't even call it an attitude. It sounds like an statement of intention to me. Maybe...Matt has the holier-than-thou attitude.

If I'm "on the road" as you say, while Chipotle may not be perfect, it will likely be one of the better options out there. I mean I guess I could just lock myself in my apartment, where I know the origin and the first name of every cow, chicken and pig in my chest freezer, but then what good is being healthy if you cant travel and enjoy it?

I hardly call that the holier-than-thou attitude.

Chipotle has never been "safe". They clearly, publicly have always stated that everything was cooked in soy oil ('cept the pork). At least they are changing that later this year (to sunflower oil, which as far as fast food goes, is closer to acceptable).

This article definitely takes it a step further with specificity, though, which is great. The link to the actual list is handy: http://www.chipotle.com/en-US/menu/ingredients_statement/ingredients_statement.aspx

So what does this information change? Chipotle is still fast food, but it's still probably the best fast food option out there at the moment. I feel like if "Local" and "non-GMO" are labels you want to attach full-force to your eating habits, you aren't someone that goes to fast food places at all, right?

DISCLAIMER: I'll still happily eat there in a pinch if it comes down to choices between Chipotle or the various fast food burger or sub joints. I just avoid these situations, if possible.
