A Delicious New Year’s Resolution That’s Easy to Keep

A New Year is all about fresh starts and intentions. If eating healthier and more sustainable plant-based meals is at the top of your list, you’ll love what Rubio’s has in store for you in this New Year.

We’re thrilled to now offer Impossible™ seasoned meat made from plants as a protein option on existing menu items as well as our new Taco Salad made with Impossible™ protein – the delicious “meat” made from plants, for meat lovers. Impossible™ meat is a delicious and nutritious meat alternative that provides the same amount of protein as ground beef, but with fewer calories, no cholesterol, and of course, no antibiotics or animal hormones. Eating more plant-based meals has so many benefits for your health, and this makes it easy for everyone.

Impossible™ meat is also a sustainable food option, so it’s better for the environment. It uses 87% less water, 96% less land, and generates 89% fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to beef from cows.

We can’t wait for you to try Impossible™ seasoned meat made from plants in our new Impossible™ Taco Salad and on our signature entrees.

And if you want to try an easy, sustainable and plant-based meal at home, these tasty Impossible™ Tacos with Cilantro Lime Creamy Cashew Sauce are sure to please every member of your family.
