Why Vegan Ricans?

My photo
Vegans because we don't need dead animal flesh inside our bodies it depletes our vitality, our mental powers and make us feel exhausted. We don't want to support factory farms and their unnecessary process of killing millions of animals for food. "Ricans" because we're native Puerto Ricans people who were born and raised in the Caribbean island, Puerto Rico "La isla del Encanto" which means "The Island of Enchantment".

ooh! I just found your blog. It is beautiful! I will have to try one of your plantain recipes. My husband loves them, but I never cook with them...

We are actually visiting Puerto Rico next month. Any tips for eating veggie on the island?

Thanks for the restaurant recs! I had never heard of the produce market before but I love tropical fruit, so we will definitely try to make it to La Placita. Cafe Berlin looks great too!

Incidentally, I made your pastelon recipe tonight. My husband and I really enjoyed it. It was my first time cooking plantains. Thanks!

I love the milk idea! I adore your recipes and your veggie blog is a wonderful read. Care to join a veggie food-fight hosted by me and shesimmers.com and submit a fennel recipe? More details: http://www.bouchonfor2.com/beet-n-squash-you/
