There are many controversial stories about being vegan. Most people think that vegan food is expensive, which is not necessarily true.
Vegan food can be very cheap and you can get it very quick when you order from the right places.
While taco time vegan is very popular for beef crunch wrap supreme and chicken chalupas, majority of their meals can be made into vegan through some few simple swaps.
This is the perfect environment for vegetarians and vegans. Taco time is perfect to accommodate your meals.
This is among the first few restaurants to create and accommodate a certified vegetarian menu. Taco time probably sold majority of their vegan meals compared to all other restaurants.

Tips for getting vegan meals at Taco time
Order the fresco-make it a fresco
The fresco is perfect if you want to replace the sour cream and cheese for the pico de gallo. You wlll be happy to hear that the pico de gallo at Taco time is completely and certified vegan.
If you are also looking to lighten up your meals, Taco Time vegan meals have significantly low calories than meat based diets.
Always make sure you check out the menu and ingredients before you order anything to ensure you are getting a completely vegan meal.
Get some protein with your meal
Refried beans and black beans are vegan certified. In fact, this is the most vegan protein meal you will see at most restaurants.
Beans are a great source of protein while they provide you with fibre which is great for digestion. You do not need meat to get the proteins nutrients that your body needs.
You can eat your beans with rice and a side of guacamole. Make sure you tread with caution while you are choosing their rice.
Remember, not all rice is vegan. If the rice is seasoned, you should ask to ensure there is not animal product in the rice. It may contain broth or milk, which is unacceptable for a vegan meal.
Also, be mindful about your orders and how you wrap it up. The flatbreads and tostada shells may be certified vegan but the taco salad shell is probably not.
The condiments may not always be vegan. For instance, the hot and mild sauces are vegan while other sauces may not be.

The good news is, most Taco dishes are very easy to turn vegan with very minimal effort. For instance, the famous seven layer Burrito from Taco Time Vegan can be veganized.
How can you do that? you can order some beans instead of meat and replace the cheese and sour cream with some guacamole.
Also, you can add some potatoes if you are feeling like a heavy vegetarian meal on that day.
The bean burrito is vegetarian but you can veganize it by simply ordering without the sour cream and cheese. In real sense, going vegan will not be that difficult once you are used to it.
