“This item contains over 1,000 calories! You could have an entire home-cooked meal, probably with dessert, for that amount of calories,” says Pine. “The 21 grams of saturated fat is likely the max you should be eating in an entire day if youre eating somewhere around a 2,000 calorie a day diet. 21 grams is equivalent to eating three big pats of butter. I really dont like the trans fat that it contains as well. Plus the 3,300 milligrams of sodium for this one meal is way more than whats recommended per day. The sodium recommendation per day is about 2,300 milligrams and even less if you are at risk for or have high blood pressure. 3,330 milligrams is like eating almost 12 pickle spears in one sitting.”
Best: Jr. Breakfast Burrito—Bacon
When it comes to a Taco Johns breakfast, nothing can beat the Jr. Breakfast Burritos when it comes to portion control. The bacon variation is a great choice if you want to start your morning with a protein boost and fairly little sodium. “Its nice when restaurants offer a smaller portion of food since restaurant sizes can often be too large,” says Pine.
At only 190 calories, this is a pretty simple meal to order that you can feel good about. Pair it with a coffee or diet beverage to limit your sugar intake, and you will be sure to not feel sluggish later in the day.
