Making The Right Choice
One of the aspects of the Fit Club is making healthy choices. Taco Bell has made it easier for you to "choose wisely" (doesn't that always make you think of the Indiana Jones Pepsi Commercial with the Templar knight...but I digress).
Check out the new Fresco menu from Taco Bell: http://www.tacobell.com/fresco/
You'll find nine great choices, all under 350 calories and all with 8 grams of fat or less. Some are as low as 150 calories. And, most importantly, they taste GREAT! Tender meat, fresh lettuce, zesty pico de gallo. Yum!
Now, if you want to try out a few regular menu choices, and see how they work out, you can go here for the Taco Bell Nutrition Calculator. Plug in what you're thinking of having and you can compare it with various options. For example, let's say you decide to get the regular Chicken Ranchero taco. That's 270 calories and 14 grams of fat. Leave off the spicy avocado dressing? You've just dropped 80 calories and 8 grams of fat! Have it off the Fresco menu (which also takes off the shredded cheese) and you're down to 170 calories. Excellent! You can also see what you'd be adding if you wanted EXTRA something on your choice.
I needed something quick for lunch today, since I spent most of the time at parent teacher conferences. So I cruised on through and grabbed the Fresco Chicken taco and headed back to work. It was quick, it was easy, it was good - and I stayed well within my goals for today.
So, if you're looking for something tasty, satisfying AND healthy, you should "think outside the bun"!
