A love letter to Chipotle

Well, now that school is back in full swing again, the schedule is pretty hectic. It’s becoming hard to make homemade meals every night due to all the places we have to go, which means we are getting takeout more often. I’m pretty apathetic about whatever meal I get. I love food in general, so I eat everything (except nuts of course). However, there is one takeout restaurant that stands out. One that beats all the others. One both completely nut free while also being the most delicious place I have eaten at.

If you looked at the title and guessed that I’m talking about Chipotle, you would be right! (You would also be cheating.)

Gosh I love Chipotle. It’s absolutely amazing. It reminds me of Disney in how the food is completely delicious and completely safe. In fact, I’m getting Chipotle tonight, which is kind of what inspired me to write this in the first place.

The place is like an allergy kid’s dream. All fresh ingredients. No nuts anywhere. Very clean. Everything is made in house. And if that isn’t enough, you can see them make it right in front of you! On top of all that, I can’t even begin to describe how delicious it is.

Delicious. Just so delicious.

Well, that was my restaurant rant. I would love to hear yours! If you have a special restaurant that you love because it is delicious AND safe, feel free to share in a comment! I might even mention it in a later post.

(While I mentioned that Chipotle is safe, remember that nothing is ever certain for someone with an allergy. Feel free to investigate more and ask your allergist if you wish to try any new restaurant.)

Until next time!

  1. I just read all your posts. Your mom shared your blog on a Facebook group for parents of kids with allergies, eczema, and asthma. I found your blog very interesting and educational. My two year old son is allergic to peanuts, pretty much any kind of tree nuts, sesame, eggs, soy, wheat, strawberries, dogs, and cats. I’m happy he was diagnosed early so we can avoid all these allergens. But I wanted to especially comment on this post because we LOVE Chipotle! I love that they list the ingredients in every single one of their items on their website. They’ll gladly change gloves for you and make sure to avoid any cross-contamination. They have so many allergy-friendly options — and also vegetarian options, which I love. It’s so nice going to a restaurant and automatically knowing that my son can eat their kids meal (with a couple minor accommodations).

    • I totally agree with you. Chipotle is by far one of the safest restaurants I’ve been to. It feels good to be able to go to a restaurant and feel confident that you will be okay.
