Naked Burrito

Here’s an idea for a quick & healthy lunch or dinner.  You can order this at Barberitos, La Parrilla, Qdoba, Moe’s or Willy’s.

You can order either a steak or chicken naked burrito at Qdoba and get it made your way. This means either grilled steak or chicken on a bed of rice and black beans with tomatoes, salsa, lettuce and your favorite hot sauce. To keep this meal truly healthy, you have to walk away from the cheese, sour cream and tortilla.

I’m not a big fan of any sodas, so I tend to stick to water with a fresh wedge of lemon. The upside is no high fructose corn syrup or funky sugar-like chemicals.

Please keep in mind that I really only have four simple rules when it comes to happy, healthy fast food meals:

  1. It must be healthy. By healthy I mean a common sense “healthy,” which in my book means that the meal uses mostly fresh ingredients, it is not fried or nuked, or in any way cooked in grease or saturated fats.
  2. It must be truly fast food in so much that I can order it, get it, and eat it after a four-mile run over my lunch break.
  3. It must be cheap. This means that I can purchase it with a drink and still receive change from a 10-dollar bill.
  4. It must taste good. What’s the use of a tofu spinach salad that is perfectly balanced with all essential nutrients and vitamins if it tastes like paper and glue?
