The best option here by a landslide is the salad at just 10 calories. The runner-up would be the tacos since it’s the second lowest in calories and carbohydrates.

Protein (Choose 1)

As you can see, the carnitas and sofritas did not make the cut. The carnitas which are made from pork is high in fat. For vegetarians, black beans or pinto beans are a better source of protein than the sofritas because they have much less fat. If you choose a bean as your protein, remember that it is also a carbohydrate source, and try to avoid adding rice with it.
