Your New Year’s resolutions just got a little easier.
If you’re a fan of Chipotle but have sworn off things like beans and rice for the month of January, the restaurant chain has added three new options to their menu so you can keep your diet on track while continuing to enjoy your favorite lunch spot.
The new line of bowls includes a Paleo Salad Bowl, Keto Salad Bowl, Whole30 Salad Bowl and Double Protein Bowl. Each one can be ordered through their mobile app or on Chipotle’s website for pick-up or delivery.
The Whole30 Salad Bowl features romaine lettuce instead of rice, carnitas, fajita veggies, tomato salsa and guacamole, while the Paleo Salad Bowl is very similar, including barbacoa instead of carnitas and green salsa instead of tomato.
The Keto Salad Bowl has romaine lettuce, carnitas, red salsa, cheese and guacamole. The Double Protein Bowl is clearly the most filling and includes white rice, black beans, a full portion of both chicken and steak, red salsa, romaine lettuce and sour cream.
“These first-to-category, diet-driven menu offerings are helping those who have committed to living a healthier lifestyle by making it easy to order delicious bowls that only contain the real ingredients permitted by certain diet regimens,” according to a press release.
The ketogenic diet, a very low-carb, moderate protein and high-fat eating plan, was especially popular in 2018, including among celebrities. Jenna Jameson shed more than 80 lbs. on the diet, while Al Roker lost 10 lbs. in two weeks. There were those who condemned keto as well: Savannah Guthrie said she didn’t lose any weight after following it for seven weeks, and Real Housewives star Tamra Judge quit keto after she said it made her “sick.”
