5 CHEAP LOW CARB / KETO TACO BELL OPTIONS

Thursday, May 10, 2018




Alright, alright. I know meal prepping is the 'best' way for keto but sometimes I forget to buy enough food or I am lazy. All around me is fast food and I can't get the exact nutritional values from a sit down restaurant. Instead, I have been getting creative. Bun-less burgers just don't fill me up sometimes and my love for tacos are truly missed. So I have been playing around with things from taco bell to make them have less carbs. Here are five low carb / keto options I have made.

$3.00

What to order - Grande Scrambler Burrito

Ask for:
-No Tortilla (Can ask them to put in a bowl or do it yourself)
-No Potatoes
-No Nacho Cheese

What you'll get- 
Scrambled Eggs, Bacon, Cheese, Pico de Gallo & Sour Cream. 

Additions:
I like to add in their chipotle sauce which adds 1g of carbs. 






2. Mini Skillet Bowl - 4G NET CARBS

Fire Grilled Chicken, Cheese, Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, Lettuce, Avocado Ranch Sauce. 

Additions:
You can change Chicken for Marinated Steak for 1g extra of carbs.
