Before diving into this one, I have 3 important notes.
1: This is not my way of saying you should or shouldn’t eat Taco Bell- you do you.
2: Anything listed here is assuming you’re ordering the item as-is. Obviously the macros change if you make substitutions.
3: The Taco Bell website actually has an amazing nutrition calculator, so if you have substitution questions, the answers are right at your fingertips!
Okay, confession time- I haven’t eaten Taco Bell since I was in middle school. I used to absolutely love it, but back then I would only eat plain tacos because I was boring and picky. Seeing this menu now, I don’t think there’s one thing I wouldn’t want to try, I just haven’t gotten around to it.
If calories are a concern for you, Taco Bell offers the option to make an item “Fresco” style (the last slide here, but note the photos are the normal dishes). This means that they swap out the cheese and heavier sauces for pico de gallo instead. Not only does it save quite a bit of calories, but it cuts out a ton of fat as well. And I don’t know about you, but I find pico to be a great topping, so that’d work for me!
