Taco Bell has started to become one of the country’s healthiest fast-food chains. It seems a little weird that a restaurant that offers a Doritos-shell taco would warrant that title, but it’s the gospel truth.Go here for the full story.
In the past year or so, Taco Bell has been restructuring menu choices from top to bottom, especially on the company website and mobile platform. The goal? To give consumers a choice. They can pig out on Crunch Wrap Supremes if they want, or they can go for a healthier option that’s still quick service and delicious.
Very few fast-food chains today can claim a similar accomplishment. Much of the credit can be given to Taco Bell’s dietitian and product developer, Missy Nelson.
Take a minute to wrap your head around the fact that Taco Bell has a dietitian. Since Nelson joined the Taco Bell team, she has made huge strides towards taking out all artificial ingredients, switching to cage-free eggs, and offering lighter (but still delicious) options. On top of all that, there has been a 15% reduction in sodium across all menu items, which is subtly a brilliant move.
(Note: Taco Bell has Capital Region locations in Albany, Troy, Clifton Park, Rensselaer, Glenmont, Hudson, Saratoga Springs, Malta, Colonie, Schenectady, Queensbury, Johnstown and Amsterdam.
