Good article about Chipotle and Panera. Fast food is obviously still subpar when compared to making your own at home, but if you must eat out, here's two restaurants that are trying to make a difference. Watch the salad dressings at Panera though...they are very high sugar.

I think Chipotle is owned by mcdonads :0 several of my co workers "got the runs" from one here in berkeley at a company lunch. I refuse to give the clown a penny. A bag of is a bag of no mater how you label it. My fear is that organic is just going to be sometning marketing people will learn to slime around :-(

Didn't mean to get agro but I just hate to see the big cooperate maggots try to weasel in and exploit the publics desire for health it is confusing enough for people already with marketing helping out. A little payola from the lobbyists and the next thing you know Styrofoam is organic.

Sorry I am ranting again.

I actually like Chipotle food so much that I got a part time job at one. Chipotle can be pretty healthy. McDonlads does own shares, they bought into Chipotle when it went public and needed capital to expand. McDonalds did not create Chipotle. I would recommend you avoid the burritos as they include partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Also soybean oil is used in the all of the meats, the salad dressing, the onions/peppers, and to fry everything. I recommend avoiding the fried foods, onion/pepper mix, and salad dressing to minimise your soybean oil intake. Also the guacamole is great.

Another "healthy" fast-casual place is Jason's Deli.

with a few exceptions [salad bar no dressing], eating out at any type of restaurant with the high amount of salt added to 99% of the food served, becomes big a problem.

Ron is correct about the amount of salt served in restaurants, I'd like to add that the type of salt (iodized, purified NaCl, with lots of anti-caking agents and other things left in it from processing) makes the whole situation even less healthy.
