Skip the steak, cut out chicken—however you do it, you'll earn extra rewards points during October's Meatless Mondays.


Vegetarians and vegans, rejoice! You already know and love Chipotle for the chain's healthy and tasty veggie options, but the restaurant just took things one step further. Every Monday in October, members of the Chipotle Rewards program can earn 150 bonus points when they choose vegetarian and plant-based options from the menu. As if the infamous Sofritas weren't already a reason to order meatless Chipotle—now you've got no excuse.

If you've been itching to ditch meat but haven't figured out where to start, the Meatless Monday deal is your perfect opportunity. October 1 is World Vegetarian Day, which kicks off the start of National Vegetarian Month. There's never been a better time to switch up your diet. Plus, Chipotle's meat-free options make it an easy (and tasty) transition.

The beauty of Chipotle is obviously customizing a burrito, taco, or bowl to your exact preferences, but it can be overwhelming for new vegetarians and vegans (or anyone, really) if you don't know what ingredient pairs with what. That's why Chipotle created two meatless menu options that do the choosing for you. Meet the Plant-Powered bowls, a hearty combo of rice, beans, veggies, and salsa. The vegetarian option is smothered in Chipotle's iconic guac, while the vegan bowl is topped with Sofritas—a delicious plant-based protein made with poblano peppers, chipotle chiles, and an original spice blend—that has taken the world by storm in the past five years.

Chipotle is known for catering to different diets, including Keto and Paleo, but now there's extra incentive to eat your greens. With Meatless Mondays, you'll earn those coveted bonus points—which will someday win you a free entrée—but you'll also contribute to a larger plant-based movement that's good for your body and the planet. That's a benefit worth the extra cost of guac.

Happy Meatless Mondays!
