Mexican Made Easy
Is there anything better than Taco night? Casually associated with Tuesday–despite LeBron James and his ill-fated attempt to trademark the name—no other food claims ownership of a weekday quite as famously. The idea of a family gathering around to coat their packed tortillas with an array of fresh toppings makes the monumental effort of gathering said ingredients worthwhile.
Vejii wants to take the pain of navigating the grocery store away. No longer will you have to venture all the way to the opposite end of the supermarket, only to realize you forgot a key ingredient way back in the produce section. With over 3,000 of the world’s best plant-based and sustainable living goods, Vejii is quickly becoming the biggest, most planet-friendly online marketplace.
The next time you’re planning a Taco night—Tuesday or otherwise—turn to Vejii for a decidedly healthy take on a family feast favorite. From tortillas to plant-based ground beef alternatives, everything you need is available with a click of the button.
Factor in Vejii’s price match guarantee and free shipping on orders over $75, and preparing a Mexico-City worthy celebration has never been easier.

Food for Thought
An article published in Smithsonian Magazine asks a very important question—where did the taco come from? Jeremy M. Pilcher, a professor of History at The University of Minnesota (and unabashed taco enthusiast) has spent over twenty years consuming (and consuming information on) Mexican food, chronicling the history, culture and evolution of this popular cuisine. Pilcher theorizes that the word ‘taco’ refers to the charges miners would use to excavate ore in the 18th century, with paper-wrapped gunpowder fed into cave holes and blasted. (One supposes this accounts for the taste explosion when a spicy, tortilla wrapped medley is bitten down upon.) The first tacos were referred to as tacos de minero—miner’s tacos.
