Your #Whole30SaladBowl Questions, Answered

Why isn’t this option on the in-store menu?

You’ll only see the Whole30 Salad Bowl as an ordering option online or in the mobile app; you won’t see it listed on the in-store menu at your favorite Chipotle location. But if you’re on the run with no time to order in the app, we’ve got you covered! Build this very same Whole30 bowl in-store by asking for the compatible ingredients by name: romaine lettuce, carne asada, chicken or carnitas, fajita veggies, tomato salsa, and guacamole. We’ve even made you this handy graphic … click here to download it. Save it on your phone so you remember exactly what goes into the #Whole30SaladBowl.

Why is Chipotle offering “extras” at the end of the order that don’t fit the Whole30 program (like chips and salsa, or a soda)?

This function is built into the Chipotle app and website and cannot be changed, since someone may place an order for an entire family or office and not just THEIR bowl. Steer clear of any of those add-ons to keep your #Whole30SaladBowl compatible.

I thought the fajita veggies were cooked in non-compatible rice bran oil?

Not anymore; now they’re using sunflower oil for the veggies and compatible proteins, and only using sunflower oil on their grills! Chipotle is constantly updating its menu and food prep practices in order to meet the needs of their guests. This changecooking their fajita veggies and proteins  in Whole30-compatible sunflower oil—allows you to order the Whole30 Salad Bowl from Chipotle as a totally compatible on-the-go meal.

How long will the #Whole30SaladBowl be available?

Whole30 and Chipotle have joined forces to support the Whole30 community with the #Whole30SaladBowl throughout 2020.

Is tomato salsa the only compatible option at Chipotle? What about the Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette?

The corn salsa is NOT compatible; the other three salsas are. When you order the Whole30 Salad Bowl in the Chipotle app, the tomato salsa is automatically added. But if you’re ordering in store, you can add the salsa of your choice. Chipotle-Honey Vinaigrette is not compatible because it’s made with Rice Bran Oil and contains honey. 

Do these changes affect all Chipotle locations? What about Canada and Europe?

These menu changes including the Adobo Chicken are expected to roll out to Canada in the future. They are not available in Europe. However, the original Whole30 Salad Bowl with romaine, carnitas, fajita veggies, guacamole and fresh salsa is available.
