    Megan Claydon got a reaction from TheLazyCaveman in Chipotle?   
    Hey Lauren,
    Let me just say that I personally LOVE me some chipotle! It can definitely come in handy when you are in a pinch for food away from home or you want to suggest a place to eat among friends who may not be as into healthy eating as you are. That being said, you are RIGHT, everything they cook is soybean oil based...even if you got the carnitas, the peppers and onions are still sauteed in soybean oil.
    To avoid the soybean oil you could do the romaine lettuce, carnitas, guacamole, and pico. Double the meat and maybe even the guacamole too.

    Love this thread!
    Something I did the other night before a ball game was run in Sam's & get one of their rotisserie chickens. Peel the skin off & it's an easy, quick snack (or meal) to get you through.
    For days when I don't have any leftovers to take, (or forget them in the fridge), I have a packet of salmon at my desk. Add that to some fresh spinach, avocado & homemade balsamic dressing, and you've got a quick, easy salad. Much better than I expected it to be when I first hodgepodged it together!

    Some people have difficulty with digestion when they change their diet. You could try taking a digestive enzyme like Now Foods Super Enzymes (2-4 capsules per meal). You can read the Whole9 view of them at http://whole9life.com/2010/09/supplements-part-ii/.

    Before you post a question that starts with, "Can I have (insert food/drink/condiment here)," please follow these quick steps.

    1. Read this article, where we summarize the most common "Can I have" questions and answers! http://whole30.com/2013/06/the-official-can-i-have-guide-to-the-whole30/ If your food or beverage isn't listed there, then...
    2. Search this forum! (Google is the easiest way, simply google 'whole30 + item') Chances are, someone has asked the question before. If not...

    3. Post your question here, making sure the subject line includes the item in question. (Ex: subject, "Can I have kombucha?") (Include as much detail in your post including ingredients you would like to check as possible)

    Thanks for participating - and best of luck on your Whole30!
    Melissa, Dallas and the Whole9 team
