My Chipotle Choice

In my opinion, Chipotle as a company does so many things right. I know the sodium content of their burritos is horrendously unhealthy (near 100% of the DV, so those with hypertension shouldn't eat them often), but they have an INTERACTIVE nutritional information page on their site at ChipotleFan.com that allows you to choose which ingredients you have put in your burrito of choice, and it calculates the nutrition information for that meal.

For example, I have a steak burrito bol with rice, black beans, lettuce, tomato salsa, tomatillo green chili salsa, and cheese. This is the results the page gives for that meal:
