At the beginning of May I was contacted by Chipotle with an awesome opportunity to be their ambassador. I’m pretty sure I didn’t read the whole email and sold my soul to them. I practically live at my local Chipotle. Because I have to deal with Celiac Disease and I tend to eat a bit healthier, Chipotle makes sense for my life, especially since I’m on the go.
Click here to check out their Special Diet/Allergen chart . It’s pretty sweet that Vegans, Vegetarians and Celiacs have an option. This lifestyle can be challenging. Also, if you are allergic to shellfish, mustard, peanuts, tree nuts, sesame and fish, there isn’t any need to worry. Chipotle does not use those ingredients in their food.
Another thing I love about them is their integrity. They serve more local produce than any other U.S company because they believe in buying local. Do you all remember when Carnitas (pork) was recently recently pulled off the menu for a couple of weeks? It’s because they truly believe in giving animals their space and only consuming pasture-raised animals that have room to be animals. And of course, there isn’t any place for nontherapeutic antibiotics and hormones on the farms that produce their ingredients.
Okay, let’s move on to Reggae on the Block!
I arrived with my girl Fiorella .
We grabbed our badges and were greeted by Chipotle’s awesome staff.
We toured the VIP lounge
Enjoying yummy Sofritas.
Did you know that the soy they used in sofritas is organic? I didn’t know this until recently.
Bands played all day long
As awesome as the bands were, we were super excited for Iration and Tribal Seeds.
Reggae and Ska have always been my favorite. In fact, my first AOL screen name (whoa, I’m old) was SkaChick08.
I learned something cool about Reggae recently, I was a bit shocked to be honest. For some reason, I thought that Ska was influenced by Reggae.
NAH, BRO. It’s the other way around. What?!
Reggae was influenced by the Rocksteady and Ska of 1960s Jamaica.
Mind blown. I just asked a bunch of people what came first, Ska or Reggae and everyone said “Reggae”.
Even security danced! 🙂
Waiting for Iration to perform.
Iration is known for Sunshine Reggae.
The band is from Santa Barbara, CA. but every member hails from Hawai’i.
And they’re amazing. The end.
Tribal Seeds is an award winning band based out of San Diego, CA.
They are known for Reggae Rock.
This pup owned the stage.
I loved everyone’s energy. I also think both bands sound way better live.
We had so much fun and can’t wait for next year!
Thank you Fiorella for the snap shots and a huge thanks to Chipotle for the passes!
