It can often be a challenge to find vegetarian fast food items on a menu, but Taco Bell is aiming to make it easier on consumers with its 'How to Eat Vegetarian and Meatless at Taco Bell' guide.

Taco Bell notes that it sells about 350 million vegetarian items annually and many of its menu items are already vegetarian-friendly or can easily be made vegetarian-friendly with a few substitutions or removals. To give vegetarians extra peace of mind, Taco Bell is the first quick service restaurant to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA) certified food options. Taco Bell's vegetarian fast food options include the Breakfast Soft Taco without bacon, Black Bean Burritos and Veggie Power Bowls.

While many fast food restaurants are now creating all-new vegetarian and vegan dishes to cater to the many consumers who are now adopting plant-based diets, the guide created by Taco Bell is a cost-effective way to spotlight existing menu options.
