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.
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!
