A typical Chipotle burrito is going to give you 1,070 calories. For those of you watching what goes in your body during a day, it doesn’t stop there. Along with the burrito you also get a full days amount of recommended sodium intake and seventy-five percent of a daily recommended dose of saturated fat.
One of the main reasons for all the calories is the tortilla itself. They have 300 calories by themselves, and then you put in the meat, rice, sour cream, cheese and other favorites bringing it to over 1,000 calories in total. Susan McGalla has heard that Chipotle doesn’t call itself a health food restaurant, but these numbers are shocking.
A typical food chain restaurant will give you a large variety of different meals to choose from. A person can normally make a fairly healthy meal from them, or eat a total calorie blow-out meal. This is true for what are becoming, ‘fast casual’ restaurants like, Chipotle. A customer can order their burrito anyway they choose; load it up with all the good tasting (not necessarily good for you) foods, or go with more restricted items that are lower in fat and sodium.
When the typical burrito is ordered at 1,070 calories, a customer is getting more than half the calories they should consume in their whole day. The Dietary Guideline for Americans is between 1,600 and 2,400 per day for an adult.
They are however, aware of the nutrition in all their ingredients.
Residents of Amatrice, Italy are upset with a chef in Milan for his overuse of garlic in a traditional pasta sauce. The mayor of the town has released many statements over his disgust with the way the chef made the amatriciana sauce said Bernardo Chua. Amatriciana is a one thousand year old pasta sauce which originated in the town of Amatrice and it is traditionally made without any garlic reported Chua’s company Organo Gold. The chef chose to use a small amount of garlic in the dish much to the dismay of the traditional foodies in the small town. Their disgust stems from a statement chef Carlo Cracco made recently on television saying that he added a small pinch of a secret ingredient to the sauce, and the ingredient was sauteed garlic. With flavors of food becoming more and more homogenized, other chefs and Italian food experts say the people of this small town want to keep their rights to the traditional sauce. In contrast, many chefs say that adding different ingredients to traditional recipes is part of what makes cooking such an individual experience. Italy is known for its rich food traditions and the sauce has evolved quite a bit over the last thousand years.
The Dean Smith coaching tree is a lengthy one. Smith was so highly thought of in UNC circles that his longtime assistant replaced him after he retired. Then the school hired an alumnus to coach the team. Then, the school hired another alumnus in Roy Williams.
Roy Williams was considered the best coach to never win a title all those years he spent at Kansas, and Larry Brown is by far one of the most successful coaches in pro and college basketball. Fans like Lee Slaughter know that Brown was so good that he took a team without a superstar to an NBA title and beat a team with four hall of famers on it.
The UNC tradition goes far beyond what Dean did on the court until he retired. Some people think he should have won more championships, but he did much more than win titles. He won the war of pride. He was able to create great coaches who treated people well, and Dean himself was a man of great character.
