Taco Bell Is Actually Home To So Many Keto-Friendly Dishes—If You Don't Mind Getting Creative

November 6, 2019

"It can be tricky to eat out when you’re on a diet. On the one hand, you want to do your best to stick with your eating plan; on the other, you still have to live.

 

Well, here’s good news for Taco Bell fans sticking to a keto way of life: You can still eat at the chain without torpedoing your diet. Just know that you might need to be a little creative. “When looking at the menu, you should be looking for protein,” says Scott Keatley, R.D., of Keatley Medical Nutrition Therapy. “But at the Bell, sugar is lurking in these items as well.” Case in point: You might think it’s a good idea to get the sausage Grande Scrambler Burrito without the wrap, but the sausage patty is actually made with corn syrup and dextrose (both sugars, both not keto-friendly).

 

You’ll also want to take a pass on the beans, which are “too high carb to eat on the keto diet,” says Beth Warren, R.D., founder of Beth Warren Nutrition and author of Secrets of a Kosher Girl. But, she adds, “high fat additives like shredded cheese, bacon, sour cream, and guacamole are okay, along with the veggies and lettuce.”"

Who's Behind The Site

My name is Blake and I've eaten at Taco Bell throughout my whole life, becoming an avid fan about 6 years ago. I've had every vegetarian applicable item that has come out since 2014. In 2015, I spent 8 months working at a Taco Bell (in between jobs). My high school graduation party was in a Taco Bell and I have a cameo in the famous "senior pictures at Taco Bell" (the guy taking the order)

In these past years I've built up this site to be the home base for all other Taco Bell fans and have built a growing community through Reddit and other social media platforms. My main goal is to keep a strong community of consumers informed and together with our appreciation for the brand.

 

A life goal of mine is to visit the Taco Bell HQ and meet the people who work hard to make this chain so great, then continue to work with them on events and promotions to make people happy.

Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy the site!
