7-Layer Burrito at Taco Bell (with a Vegan Twist)
My favorite Taco Bell menu item is the seven-layer burrito but not for the reasons you may think. It's one of the easiest fast food meals to veganize—just order it without cheese and sour cream and *poof* you have a relatively healthy meal on the go (if you count translucent lettuce as a vegetable and a floppy tortilla wrap as a "complex carb"). It's worth noting, though, do not confuse this with the five-layer burrito. The number of layers may be the same, but I learned the hard way that one of said layers is beef, and that is decidedly not vegan. And of course, wash it down with a (large) Baja Blast because it's the only soda in the world that tastes so good and so blue.
