The New Year is upon us and we all know what that means: massive hysteria as people scramble to get their eating and exercise habits in check to get a jumpstart on their new selves in 2017. Believe it or not, Mondo Taco can help you stay true to your New Year’s resolution. Yes, we know that may sound confusing, how can eating delicious tacos help me keep my resolution?
Going Vegetarian or Vegan
Well, we’re talking directly to the resolutioners who have vowed to live a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle in 2017. Whether you’re against meat for moral purposes or you’re going for the health benefits of meatless meals, one thing is for sure; you can continue to eat tacos at Mondo Taco!
How can that be? The answer is simple! Mondo Taco serves over 10 meatless recipes for our tacos, wraps and bowls, including both vegan and vegetarian options. A lot of our vegetarian tacos can also be made vegan by simply leaving out an ingredient or two and we’re happy to do it!
Some of you may be asking, “WHY would you go vegetarian when you could be eating the Angry Chicken or the Thailicious?!” Believe it or not, there are some pretty amazing benefits that come with being a vegan or vegetarian, and we’re happy to support our plant-loving friends in their New Year’s journey.
Benefits of Veganism & Vegetarianism
Some of those benefits include protection from major diseases like heart disease. There is some scientific evidence that states that vegetarians are at a lower risk for cardiac events and deaths resulting in cardiac failure. Who knew?!
Are you feeling extra down? A vegan diet might help because vegans tend to have improved moods. Arachidonic acid can cause depressed mood or mood swings, and coincidentally it is common in dietary animal sources like milk, meat and eggs.
