Ooops! I'm not supposed to say the "D" word - it's a "Lifestyle Change". Whatever...it's eating less, exercising more and drinking lots of water. Anyway, there are times when we are forced to eat out and inevitably our new "healthy lifestyle" takes a turn for the worse when we are confronted with the Value Menus and Super-sized fare at most fast food places. I really hate the salads at those places, so what am I to do?
Well, have no fear, I found something good, realitively low-cal, and satisfying at Taco Bell! The Zesty Chicken Bowl is a combination of refried beans, rice, chicken, lettuce tomato and cheese - it's like a salad but with a lot less of the green stuff. At 440 calories you can't beat this for quick, filling dinner. Add in the optional dressing and it goes up 200 calories - not worth it - just use some of the hot sauce.
They also have a Fresco menu which leaves off the cheese and adds some kind of pico de gallo mixture. There is only 350 calories in this (even better). I will try this next time and let you know.
