i have been a chipotle addict for years.  on nights when i just don't have it in me to cook (sadly more of those than not), this chain is top on my list.  i am obsessed with their cilantro lime rice and their latest addition of brown rice allows me to feel less guilty about adding a little sour cream into the mix.  (i'm not sure that the last point makes sense, but in my head it somehow works.)   i still think they can be a little skimpy on the meat, but that's another conversation.  anyway, i love that they use organic and family farmed ingredients when possible.  i not only feel better about the food going into my body, but i am supporting my local community.

a couple of months ago, i saw a presentation that included the video above.  chipotle teamed up with willie nelson (willie is covering coldplay's "the scientist") to produce this short film against factory farming. it's incredible how perfectly the words fit with the message being played out - a tiny bit haunting.

click on the picture above to watch the video and then maybe stop off for a burrito on your way home!

  1. Mmmm...veggie bowl + hot sauce + corn + sour cream + cheese. Then add the most important ingredient, Guacamole (free on the veggie bowl). Add chips. Boom.
