Nutrition Per Dollar Update: June 7th release- hold me to it. I went back for a second round of data after seeing the surprising initial results. I suggest looking up ways to eat Romaine Lettuce 😉
Taco Bell is my guilty pleasure. Mrs. Efficiency was dead set on hating Taco Bell, suffering on hard tacos with Ground Beef and lettuce. No cheese, nothing-
The magic of a Loaded Potato Griller has changed her life forever.
Save Money At Taco Bell
- Beefy 5 Layer Burrito – Is no longer the highest Calorie Per Dollar item at Taco Bell
- Sausage Flatbread Quesadilla – Is the highest Protein Per Dollar
- Cinnamon Twists are 2.5x less cost effective than the Beefy Fritos Burrito
- Shredded Chicken Mini Quesadilla– High protein per dollar but low in calories.
Taco Bell Is Expensive
Despite having a 400 Calorie Per Dollar item, thats still almost 2x more than we spend on homecooked food. Most menu items were around 150-250 calories per dollar, 4x more expensive than eating at home. I can do a followup when Marijuana is legal and see how that impacts Taco Bell prices.
A year eating at home costs around $1,000/person- Eating at Taco Bell, $4,000 a year.
This article is oddly relevant to my life. There is a Taco Bell a few miles from our campsite this year. I’ll take pictures 😛
If you have a friend you think would love to know Taco Bell Efficiency-
Nutrition Per Dollar and More Efficiency
After 6 months, Nutrition Per Dollar is easily the biggest thing I have ever accomplished. 40 different types of nutrition with over a hundred types of foods. Every “Sort Column” is like opening a Christmas Present.
If you have an efficiency request, I have some Engineering Students that think they can take on these problems. I believe in them. Comment a task, restaurant, or process you want made efficient, I’ll make sure it gets efficient!
