According to a recent Cosmopolitan article, single millennials prefer pizza for a late-night post-hookup snack. Tacos landed the coveted runner-up spot.
There’s certainly no denying that pizza and tacos make delicious post-activity meals, regardless of the activity or time of day. But did you know that if you’re reaching for dairy- or meat-based versions of these dishes, you may be hindering your sexual performance? It’s true. Artery-clogging meat and dairy cheese can seriously affect what happens—or doesn’t happen—in the bedroom.

But don’t fret—we have you covered. Whether you’re craving takeout or delivery—or even if you’re up for flaunting your kitchen skills in addition to your bedroom talents—these vegan pizza and taco options will fill you up while still leaving you and your partner ready for round two … and maybe three or four.
