Chipotle Nutrition Facts Calculator – How healthy is your Chipotle?

Hmmm… Well, I’m not a big fan of Chipotle (I prefer QDoba, personally), but sometimes you’ve just gotta have a giant burrito. Wanna know how to make that burrito healthier, and reduce the calories? Use the Chipotle Nutrition Facts Calculator.

This is truly awesome!

Einstein Bagels power bagel – HOLY CRAP!

Here’s an example of why nutritional information is so important. For a while now, I’ve been having a power bagel with peanut butter from Einstein’s Bagels for breakfast. This seemed like a pretty good breakfast to me. The power bagel has a lot of protein in it. And if it has protein, then it has to be good for you, right?

Well, not exactly. Thanks to an Einstein’s Bagels nutritional information guide, (Warning: It’s a PDF file) I now find that the power bagel is not very good for weight loss at all. With peanut butter, it weighs in at 750 calories! HOLY CRAP!! Subtract the peanut butter, and it is still 560 calories. That’s one damned expensive bagel!

From now on, I’m switching to a whole wheat bagel with blueberry cream cheese. That’s 410 calories, which leaves me with enough calories for my cinnamon latte.

Tokyo Joes

Hello again, everyone! I actually got myself out to the rec center this morning for a 30 minute, 1.7 mile walk (which is VERY good time and distance for me). I feel so much more relaxed and full of energy this morning. I really don’t understand why it is so hard for me to get out and exercise when I enjoy the after-effects so much!

Erin and I love to eat at Tokyo Joes (a local Japanese chain restaurant). I’ve found that Joes has a perfect dinner for me: It’s a brown rice bowl with chicken, lotsa veggies and curry sauce. According to their nutritional information, it’s 630 calories, which is right in my dinner range. If any of your readers are here in the Denver area and want healthy takeout/fast food, I strongly recommend Tokyo Joes!
