celebrating vegetarianism!

O.L. Vegetarian Mexican Cuisine

what's cooking? 

 Thank you LISD Child Nutrition Program for inviting us to this great event. Lean Green 2018 is an initiative of the school district to promote a healthy plant based diet. El Quinto Sol, as the official vegetarian and vegan territory in town, could not feel more greatful to be part of this.

World Vegetarian Day was established as an annual celebration to promote the joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism. The day was originated by the North American Vegetarian Society in 1977 and endorsed by the International Vegetarian Union in 1978.
