How To Eat Vegan At Taco Bell

whats-vegan-at-taco-bellLet’s face it.  Sometimes even the healthiest of vegans need to grab some fast food on the go when there’s little time to spare. Thankfully, we’ve got lots of options!


As I note in my new book (hot off the press!!): The Vegan Way: 21 Days To A Happier, Healthier, Plant-Based Diet That Will Transform Your Home, Your Diet And You, there are plenty of options when you’re on the road, including a nice variety of vegan food at Taco Bell, all of which is certified by the American Vegetarian Association (Hurray!).

So let’s make a run for the border, and see what they’ve got!

All of the following Taco Bell items are 100% Vegan:


  • Cantina Salsa                                               taco-bell
  • Cilantro
  • Flatbread
  • Green Chili Sauce
  • Green Tomatillo Sauce
  • Guacamole
  • Jalapeños
  • Lettuce
  • Black Beans
  • Border Sauce (Fire, Hot, Mild, Verde)
  • Mexican Pizza Sauce
  • Onions
  • Pico de Gallo
  • A NEW seasoned vegan rice (be sure to ask for the vegan version!)
  • Rainforest Coffee
  • Red Sauce
  • Refried Beans
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Salsa del Sol
  • Taco Shells
  • Tomatoes
  • Tortilla
  • Tostada Shell

And here’s what you can do with these goodies!






There are SO many options to choose from! All thanks to popular demand. And don’t feel like you’re being a pain in the booty if you customize your order; over 60% of Taco Bell customers already do.

I don’t eat at Taco Bell anymore, but the reality is, those switching from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to healthy plant-based cuisine often need a few baby steps – including grab and go fast food. Even seasoned vegans sometimes need a quick little something when they’re in a pinch. So hurray for Taco Bell! They listened, and they delivered.

And that’s something to be happy about, my friends; and the animals are happy about it, too!
