The hidden gem at your local Taco Bell is the Fresco menu. Instead of piling these menu items with high-cal toppings like cheese and sour cream, they punch up the flavor with fresh pico de gallo. Other, more traditional menu items, like the Double Decker Taco Supreme are packed with fatty Cheddar cheese and other ingredients that will wreak havoc on your hard-won beach body. Even better, with only 140 calories, you can order two of the Fresco Shredded Chicken Soft Tacos and leave the drive thru with fewer calories, less fat and more muscle-building protein than just one “supreme” order.
