We can't always meal prep every. single. meal. We can't always be home, because there are baseball games and kids get sick and… and… and. Things come up. Don't feel bad about eating out when you're doing Weight Watchers, just track your points, drink lots of water, and move on to the next meal.

Worst Weight Watchers Options at Taco Bell
You may want to avoid these options, as they are all 11 Freestyle Points or more at Taco Bell. If you have the points then by all means use them! But track, track, track.
These points might not seem too high considering it's fast food, but the portions at Taco Bell are usually fairly small, so keep that in mind when planning for your meal. You don't want to use 15 FSP and leave feeling hungry!

Shredded Chicken Mini Quesadilla (6 FSP)
Beef Mini Quesadilla (7 FSP)
Breakfast Steak Quesadilla (15 FSP)

Weight Watchers Taco Bell Meal Ideas With Points
You could easily make a low point meal at Taco Bell by combining a few low point options and making them into a “bowl” (like a crunchy taco + beans + salsa). Don't feel limited and don't be tempted by high point options. You can stay on track with Weight Watchers even if you eat at Taco Bell once in a while!
Steer clear of cheese, sour cream, and guacamole if you're trying to stay low point at Taco Bell. Each person loads these items up differently so you may get 2 FSP worth of cheese or 4 FSP worth. Keep that in mind when ordering and tracking.
9 Freestyle SmartPoints: Crunchy Taco (5 FSP) + Black Beans & Rice (4 FSP) + Salsa (0 FSP)
10 Freestyle SmartPoints: Fresco Soft Taco With Chicken (4 FSP) + Cinnabon 2-pack (6 FSP)
11 Freestyle SmartPoints: Two Fresco Soft Tacos With Chicken (8 FSP) + Pintos N Cheese (3 FSP)
12 Freestyle SmartPoints: Pintos N Cheese (3 FSP) + Black Beans & Rice (4 FSP) + Crunchy Taco (5 FSP)
13 Freestyle SmartPoints: 2 Soft Tacos With Chicken (8 FSP) + Black Beans & Rice (4 FSP) + Black Beans (1 FSP) — loaded with protein!
14 Freestyle SmartPoints: Burrito Supreme With Chicken (6 FSP) + Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes (7 FSP) + Black Beans (1 FSP)
15 Freestyle SmartPoints: Two Fresco Crunchy Tacos With Beef (8 FSP) + Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes (7 FSP)
Calculating Weight Watchers Points at Taco Bell
I love this about Taco Bell: their nutrition app lets you add/remove ingredients so instead of guessing, you can put in exactly what you're eating and get the nutrition facts. Then add those to your WW app to get exact points. There's nothing wrong with “guesstimating” once in a while, but it's important to track the points if you can… and Taco Bell's nutrition calculator ensures this!
Your best bet is to always put nutrition facts into the WW app. Example: The app says a Sausage Breakfast Quesadilla is 10FSP but also says it is 16FSP. The app says a Sausage Soft Taco is 6 FSP and 7 FSP. While these aren't necessarily huge discrepancies, in the long run, I feel it's important enough to pre-track everything by using nutrition facts when possible.
