Today’s Solutions: October 16, 2021

As a new wave of plant-based meat hits the fast-food market, Taco Bell is proudly reminding its customers that its menu has carried vegetarian protein classics such as rice and beans for decades. Taco Bell’s bean burrito is their second best selling item, and the chain is celebrating its history of vegetarian achievement by launching an all-new and improved vegetarian menu. 

Lost in the craze of Impossible Whoppers and plant-based chicken, Taco Bell is reminding people that rice, beans, cheese, and vegetables are nutritious and delicious staples for those avoiding meat. The new menu will feature vegetarian versions of its top items, including a Black Bean Crunchwrap Supreme and Black Bean Quesarito. Whether you want to experiment with plant-based meat or stick to the classics, the bottom line is that vegetarian options are flooding into the fast-food market, making it easier than ever to eat plant-based, whether you are on a road trip, in the airport, or just craving a taco at 3 in the morning.
