The Taco Bell Breakfast Burrito is bigger and tastier than the one sold at McDonald’s, but is it healthier? Let’s dive into its nutrition panel to find out.
Taco Bell’s Grilled Breakfast Burrito has 340 calories and 17 grams of fat. Carbs add just 190 calories, while protein only contributes 44. If you’re looking for a lighter fast-food breakfast burrito, I suggest you take a look at this one.
It’s worth noting that the Taco Bell option has less cholesterol, sodium, and saturated fat. So even though the McDonald’s breakfast burrito is lighter, the burrito at Taco Bell is probably healthier.
The ingredients on the Taco Bell breakfast burrito make it seem like a more appetizing option though. It includes sausage crumbles, egg, and nacho cheese sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla. The nacho cheese sauce is the real star of the show.
You can play around with the ingredients to suit your nutrition needs. Sausage crumbles subtract 60 calories, the nacho cheese sauce subtracts 30, and the egg subtracts 60.
Adding or removing ingredients to customize the burrito based on your distinct needs is the most important thing you can do to control your caloric intake.
