How to Eat Keto at Chipotle

Keto Chipotle

For people new to the keto diet, you will start to realize that there were many foods you took granted. Chipotle is one of those eateries that many people get addicted to. If you are one of those people who love Chipotle then you are probably feeling devastated by the fact that Chipotle is a no-go for people on the keto diet.

The good news is that Chipotle is not off limits to people who are on the keto diet. The bad news is that you will most likely need to make some significant changes to what you usually order in order to be keto-compliant. To help you determine what works, Chipotle created a super-helpful Nutrition calculator. This page has all the info you need to figure out what would make a good low-carb meal at Chipotle.

For starters, avoiding any burrito, taco, or rice-based meal is a must. One flour tortilla, for example, contains 50 grams of carbohydrates. Burrito bowls are also heavy on carbs with one serving of cilantro-lime brown rice containing 36 grams of carbohydrates. As a base, your options are limited to salad bowls. This might not sound like it’s worth it for people who love the tortillas or rice but we encourage you to try the salad options because they are delicious.

One keto-friendly meal we suggest you try at Chipotle is the steak salad bowl. This contains steak, super greens, tomato salsa, Monterey Jack cheese, and guacamole. The total calories are about 535 calories and the total carbohydrates is about 17 grams for this meal.

Another keto-friendly option at Chipotle is the paleo bowl. This contains chicken, super greens, fajita vegetables, green salsa, and guacamole. In total, you can expect about 460 in calories and 20 grams in carbohydrates. We hope this gives you some ideas on tasty keto-friendly meals you can get at Chipotle.
