Trying to lose weight in the new year? Head to Taco Bell.
The home of deep-fried churros, Crunchwrap Supremes and Dorito-wrapped tacos has actually made some pretty big changes to its menu, like decreasing sodium and getting rid of artificial flavors, and nutritionists are starting to believe that Taco Bell might actually be a healthy fast food option. Yeah. Holy shit.
Taco Bell’s low-calorie Fresco menu provides some healthier, albeit less tasty, alternatives to the usual Taco Bell staples. With each item on the Fresco menu clocking in at under 350 calories, it often means the line chefs are leaving tasty condiments off of your burrito, like cheese, sour cream and guacamole. But resolutions are calling.
The chain plans to remove XL sodas from its menu, cut an additional 10 percent of sodium from menu items, and remove some of the antibiotics from its chicken in 2017. TBD if the new menu will actually be worth a shit.
Thanks, Taco Bell, for convincing future drunk me that it’s okay to binge eat 10 Crunchy Taco Supremes.
