Chipotle Tofu Sofritas Coming to New York, New England

Chipotle Sofrito

Be still my beating heart.

Chipotle’s tofu sofrita’s are expanding to New York and New England, yes! According to the Huffington Post, who reached out to the company, the vegan option is coming to new territories starting March 3. It’s already available in over a dozen states and nearly 40 percent of Chipotle restaurants already have the Sofritas burrito.

It looks like this:

There aren’t many moments when I’m not craving Chipotle (I do control myself, though). I always go for the gluten free (I’m in a battle with gluten that I’ll discuss later) vegetarian option, which leaves me with the veggie bowl and the same ingredients in rotation, so it will be nice to have a different veggie option.

To put things into better perspective, you know how Kel feels about orange soda, right?

Shout out to the 90s kids for understanding that one but that’s how I feel about Chipotle.

Better late to the party then never!

And now we wait to see which NYC branches get them first.

Rocsi Diaz Goes Pro Vegetarian in Peta Holiday Campaign

Former 106 and Park host Rocsi Diaz teamed up with Peta to promote the benefits of a vegetarian lifestyle. In the ad she rocks a bikini made out of Brussels sprouts with a small piece of a wreath added for extra holiday flavor. Check her out:

She also did an interview for the campaign explaining how and why she went vegetarian.

“I physically felt cleaner and lighter,” she mentioned as one of her personal perks. “Later on, literally I saw somebody eating a chicken wing, and it grossed me out. … My body was, like, ‘No more. I don’t want it anymore.’”

Watch the full interview:

I’ve been a yo yo vegetarian all my life since age 2 (a saga where I battle yo yo eating in general that I will one day share). I even dabbled with raw food veganism (this was an amazing phase, another story I will one day share). I believe more in the theory that people have diverse and individual dietary needs based on blood type. My experience, since before I began researching various diets and stumbled across blood type eating, has shown me that I’m much better as a vegetarian (I’m blood type A and according to that fact veggies should be my gospel). However, even rampant meat eaters should probably cut their meat consumption tremendously and give the veggies a chance, even if vegetarian for a day. When done correctly, the vegetarian lifestyle has tremendous benefits.
