Just by chance the other day the husband wanted to go to Kentucky Fried Chicken for lunch. I told you all, fast food junky, right? Anyway, I said sure and crossed my fingers that I’d have the strength to get something not dripping in fast food fried grease.
The KFC we decided to hit was actually one of those new fangled double joints, with a Taco Bell and a KFC under the same roof. I LOVE this idea as the husband and I rarely agree on anything and the double fast food place gives us the most options.
Anyway, as I scanned the menu to choose the healthiest options I could find, I came across the Taco Bell Fresco menu. Everything looked like pretty good choices! So I took a leap and ordered the Fresco Zesty Chicken Border Bowl. It was a delicious mish mosh of rice, beans, lettuce, chicken and salsa, very tasty and filling!
Coming home I again, crossed my fingers as I looked up the nutritional information. Surprisingly weighing in at 350 calories, 8g of fat and 10g of fiber it was a great lunch choice, only 7 points! For fast food, that ain’t bad! I then proceeded to look up the entire Fresco menu and all the options a very point friendly!
So I added a Taco Bell section to my Fast Food page. With nine options that are 7 points or less, I’ll be steering the husband to KFC/Taco Bell when he has a Fast Food craving in the future! (Shhh Taco Bell’s always been my favorite anyway, I have a soft spot for mexican inspired flavors.)
