I am a vegan wife and mother to a meat eating family. I will share with you recipes I have tested and changes I am making to encourage my family to lean into a vegan diet.

*Can Be Prepared Vegan

I love it when I go to a restaurant and I see a little icon next to food that says

 *This item can be prepared vegan


That’s one reason that I was excited about eating at

There are several items on their menu that have the little icon next to it.

It’s a Mexican restaurant that strives to use the freshest ingredients, their meats are grain fed and bought local, their fryer oil is recycled to make clean-burning bio-diesel fuel and they support local farmers and vendors.

It’s located in Downtown Tulsa.

The Elote Luchador Federation wrestles there twice a month May through October.

This is a unique place!

We walked in and saw that there was a stage…The Praire Dawgs were playing.

They were good, it made for a fun atmosphere.

We order 3 starters because we had never eaten there before and wanted a sampling.

White queso


and something I had never tried…black bean hummus served with flour crisps and carrot sticks. 

And of course, margaritas.

For dinner I ordered Fried Avocado Tacos which was two corn tortillas filled with fried avocado, black beans, spinach, tomato onion relish and jalapenos.  I also had a side of black beans and sweet potatoes.  These tacos had so much flavor,  I couldn’t really tell that the avocados were fried (they weren’t greasy at all).  Their black beans were the best I’ve ever had and the sweet potatoes were tasty too.  It was so good.

My husband and daughter had Puffy Tacos filled with organic roast beef with a side of rice and black beans.

They said it was delicious too.  They said the roast beef was cooked perfectly.

I would definitely recommend this restaurant, the food was great and the atmosphere was fun!

  1. Hi,

    I have Lupus so I was wondering if the Roobis ( spelling?) would help me? Would you email me back and let me know what you think.


    • Hi Christi,
      I’m not qualified to say, but what I have found is there really aren’t any good scientific studies on it. The good news is that rooibos is not known to have any obvious negative effects, so you should have as much as you like. It has no caffeine and Rooibos does contain antioxidants that are definitely good for you.
