Best Keto Taco Bell Orders
I’m sure it was a sad and scary thought to think you may need to give up your favorite meal on the go — but fear not friends. Taco Bell has hooked us up with a handful of delicious options for those of us sticking to low carb meals!
They’ve even created an easy to navigate Taco Bell nutrition calculator, so you can check out your favorite order and how to modify it to fit within your carb count. Super easy and fun to use, way to go Taco Bell!
I suggest giving this bad boy a whirl before heading into the bell. Test out various sauces, sides, proteins and salsas to see what you can live with and without based on your daily carb goals. Some proteins use seasoning that load up the carbs — and as with most restaurants, not all the sauces are low carb friendly.
Here are my favorite orders for keto taco bell. I’ve also included a screenshot from their nutrition calculator so you can see exactly what I include and what I leave out of the order:
Keto Taco Bell Power Bowl
The Taco Bell power bowl is basically a deconstructed burrito, full of everything you love in a burrito, minus the carbs (if you order right!). You can customize it however you please — chicken, steak, there’s even an option for extra protein which I usually jump on! Load up on the sour cream, guac, and salsa, yum!
You know which high carb foods to skip: rice, beans, fritos, fries and potatoes. Here’s what I order:
Each of their “signature sauces” add 1 carb per bowl. If you’d like to save even more carbs, the pico, guac, sour cream and lettuce each add a carb to this bowl. As far as protein goes, the “Fire Grilled Chicken” seems to be the lowest, while the seasoned beef is the highest.
My opinion: When ordering this power bowl, I double up on the meat, cheese, guac, and salsa. Although this adds a few more carbs, it helps keep me full until the next meal!
Keto Taco Bell Breakfast Mini Skillet bowl
A high protein breakfast in a bowl, from the dollar menu? Yes please!! You’ll want to skip the potatoes and beans. Nacho cheese adds 2 carbs, if that’s your thing. You can add extra eggs, cheese and protein, yum! Here’s what I order:
My opinion: This bowl is pretty tiny! I double up on the eggs, protein and salsa.
Other Low Carb Taco Bell Options
If none of the options are the low carb taco bell you were looking for, then try getting creative with their nutrition calculator! You can order a burrito in a bowl without the tortilla — or eat the filling of a few tacos — see how creative you can get with your very own keto taco bell recipe.
Keep in mind that just because it’s a salad, doesn’t mean it’s low carb. The fiesta taco salad comes in a deep fried shell — in fact one salad has 75 grams of carbs! However, you can modify that salad to make it a keto lunch:
Know before you go, scope out their website so you can make the right choice for you.
Although there are plenty options for low carb take out — whether it’s keto mcdonalds or kfc keto, the taco bell low carb menu is definitely my favorite. With their awesome nutrition calculator, delicious sauces and meats to choose from, I’d pick keto taco bell over other options any day!
