Today, my mother and I went to Chili’s (a side step to the reason we left the house in the 1st place). Normally, when I went to Chili’s I would get the Cajun Pasta w/ chicken or the Quesadillas. So, I changed it up in terms of thinking more healthy. Low and behold the Chipotle Chicken Fresh Mex Bowl wasn’t so healthy.
The dish has the following ingredients: corn/black bean salsa, rice/chipotle pesto topped with shredded cheddar cheese, pico de gallo, fresh field greens, chopped cilantro, avocado slices, some tortilla chips, and cumin-lime sour cream. Can you guess how many calories was in this? I am going to tell you. 940 FREAKIN CALORIES!!!!! WTH?? Wait. It gets better. Can you guess the sodium intake? It will blow your head off. 2680mg of sodium in this 1 dish. Outrageous!!!
It looks as though I cannot patronize this place again. My family is riddled with extreme high blood pressure, diabetes, and other ailments. I cannot continue to eat things that are not marginalized in the fat, salt, & calorie content. Everything made will have salt, but that much salt? Everything will have a calorie count, but that high? My dish of choice was better than the Cajun Pasta w/ chicken because that is 1270 calories with a salt intake of 4580mg, but come on. I wish my phone wasn’t so bootleg and cutting off because I would have checked their nutrition before I ordered. I would’ve told my mom lets leave and just go get a slice of Sbarro pizza for less calories and salt. I log in everything I eat and this has practically killed my calories for the day. My heart is pounding harder and I have a slight headache. I know I had too much salt because of these 2 factors. I never get headaches so this was a tell tale. I am so disappointed. Highlight: Blackberry Iced Tea was good. It just needed a little bit more of the blackberry flavor.
