Taco Bell: Do the tasty tacos stand a chance in this Mexican standoff?
Verdict: Tacos win! They contain 21 fewer grams of fat and carbs than the salad and have 18 grams of fairly lean protein, offering enough muscle building fuel for a small meal.
29 grams of fat in a salad!—that's about half your daily fat allowance. We've seen this before: fast food salads often contain relatively unhealthy ingredients like croutons, cheese, bacon and fatty dressing. Pass on the salad and pick the soft tacos off the fresco menu. No sour cream or cheese means they're a much healthier option.
