The Power Bowl is a low-carb option on the Taco Bell menu that has 500 calories and is also a good source of protein and fiber. This menu item also comes in a vegetarian version which contains even fewer calories, but that has considerably more carbs, not to mention less protein.
Taco Bell’s Power Menu Bowl includes common ingredients such as chicken, cheese, black beans, seasoned rice, reduced-fat sour cream, guacamole, pico de gallo, and avocado Ranch sauce.
The Power Veggie Bowl, on the other hand, comes with all the same ingredients, minus the chicken. However, even though it doesn’t have chicken in it, the Power Veggie Bowl is not a vegan dish because it contains cheese.
But you can omit the cheese and the chicken on either versions to make it vegan. And you can also omit the rice and the beans to reduce the overall calories of your meal.
