Taco Bell Has Become One of the Healthiest Fast-Food Chains In America
When you start a new diet, it may sound like a good idea to designate your favorite drive-thru restaurant "off-limits." But this year, you may want to think twice. One popular chain has completely restructured its menu, and is now offering more wholesome options than just Crunch Wrap Supremes.
That's right: Taco Bell has become one of the healthiest fast-food restaurants in America—which we know sounds ridiculous, but it's true.
Unlike many of its competitors, Taco Bell aims to give its customers a choice. While you certainly still have the option to indulge in Doritos-shell tacos, you can also opt to order something that's actually healthy—but still quick and delicious.
Taco Bell's dietitian and product developer, Missy Nelson, played a huge role in the improvements to the menu. (Yes, Taco Bell has a dietitian.) Since she joined the company, it focuses on serving all natural ingredients, has switched over to cage-free eggs, and has made a 15 percent reduction in sodium across all menu items.
Beyond those important changes, there are a ton of lighter options available—and they actually taste good. The chain offers a high-protein "Cantina" menu, a low-calorie "Fresco" menu, and a vegetarian menu certified by the American Vegetarian Association.
The best part of all of this? Taco Bell has been very low-key about the new offerings, quietly releasing the new menus so anyone who wants to make the healthy choice can do so.
