Most restaurants if you call beforehand will offer you a vegan option or you have to alter a dish on their menu to veganise it. For example: veggie pizza…

All dairy products contain a protein called Casein and cheese contains the most addictive and concentrated form of Casein, Casomorphins. Casomorphins have an opioid effect (opioids: known as one the world’s oldest drugs)! This addictive formula is what was designed to keep the calf suckling its mother’s milk. Now can you see why cheese…

Beautiful Paraty, Brazil

Beautiful Paraty, Brazil

          Beautiful. Colonial. Quaint. Different? Paraty is all of the above and so much more. Paraty is the first place I visited when entering Brazil and it gave me such a different view of the country.
