Taco Bell is officially the first quick-service restaurant to offer meals certified by the American Vegetarian Association. 

The company's CEO noted in a statement the fast-food giant already serves more than 350 million vegetarian menu items each year. He said, though, "Until now [we] haven't been vocal about it."

Don't worry, meat lovers, you too can customize your meals on the company's website and mobile app. Only now, you'll be able to click through an entirely vegetarian category. Who knows, you might even make the switch full- time.
