“Saturday Smart Swap!”: Taco Bell
Taco Bell is one of my favorite fast food eateries, but it can be super-tough to keep your calorie count in check there. One way I have found to satisfy my cravings without blowing my day’s calorie count is to find foods on the menu that have similar flavors to my high-cal picks, but fewer calories.
… And of course, that’s what making a “Smart Swap!” is all about! If you can find easy ways to savor your favorite treats without blowing your calorie budget, you’ve made a huge step toward long-term weight loss success.
My current fave switch at the Bell? If I really want a Chicken Ranch Taco Salad, I rein my calorie spending by swapping the 900-calorie salad for a Fresco Ranchero Chicken Soft Taco. If I add it a side of Mexican rice, I’ll still only be taking in 300 calories, a savings of a whopping 600 calories!
