    On the quest for more lunch fare that does not need to be prepared, I took a look at the nutritional information for Blimpe. I was so surprised to see so many sandwiches under 400 calories.

    Even more surprising was the fact that my favorite comes in at only 420 calories – a 6 inch Blimpie Best on Whole Wheat. So if I have a light breakfast, I can fit this in and not even feel guilty about the extra 20 calories :)

    Taco Bell has a new menu section called their FRESCO menu – several items 400 Calories or Less !!

    Taco Bell Fresco Menu

    Taco Bell Fresco Menu

    I finally had to give it a try – some days you just don’t have time to cook lunch and there are few places to get a decent meal that is under 400 calories. My expectations were high because I.LOVE.TACO BELL. I know, I know … but I can’t help it – their tacos are just so good :)

    So here’s what my husband and I got for lunch:

    Me:

    1 Fresco Crunchy Taco – 150 calories
    1 Fresco Ranchero Chicken Soft Taco – 170 calories

    Him:

    1 Fresco Crunchy Taco – 150 calories
    1 Fresco Burrito Supreme Steak – 330 calories

    Taco Bell

    Taco Bell

    And the consensus is…….

    2 thumbs up :) The tacos are minus some cheese, but other than that, they are pretty much the normal Taco Bell fare. These will definitely stay on the list for a quick meal that fits into the 400 calorie plan !
