Alice Townsend describes the vegan vibe in Brazil

Samba, caipirinhas and sandy beaches. That’s what I had in mind when booking those tickets. Brazil was somewhere that both my friend Lauren and I had wanted to explore for such a long time and now it was finally Whappening! After I’d dusted off my backpack the next thing on my mind was making sure that I was going to be able to eat. And eat well.

Researching vegan food is something that I love to do, whether I’m at home, cooking or dreaming of going away. Using the HappyCow app is an amazingly easy way of finding vegan restaurants all around the world. It’s been a lifesaver for me on multiple occasions, and Brazil was no exception.

Our first stop in Brazil was the jaw-droppingly beautiful Iguazu falls — the largest waterfall system in the world that spans across both Argentina and Brazil. I would definitely recommend visiting the waterfall from both sides. From the Brazilian side you get a stunning panoramic views of the cascading waters, but from the Argentinian side you can get up close and personal with a view down the ‘devil’s throat’ or ‘La Garganta del Diablo’, an 80m drop into the misty abyss.

About Vegan Life

It’s the most wonderful time of the year which means dark nights and crisp cold days, rich cinnamon-infused foods and, in my house, Miracle on 34th Street on repeat. I turn into that annoying person that most people hate at Christmas. I start listening to carols in early November, wearing ridiculous jumpers and get myself into a state of overexcitement for the entirety of December leading to near exhaustion by Christmas Eve. Combining my passions for Christmas and veganism for the December issue of Vegan Life, therefore, has been immensely satisfying for me and it should be just as satisfying for you because we have a bumper issue! This month we have made Vegan Life even bigger (and better) with 122 pages full of your favourite regulars as well as interviews, news and the best vegan recipes around. These extra pages give you the perfect excuse to curl up in a chair just a little longer and have some you-time to read and escape the ever-so-slightly-manic Christmas hysteria. In a whistle stop tour of the magazine we have; an interview with Ingrid Kirkman, founder of PETA; Fat Gay Vegan on shopping at independents; an article on the importance of iodine in our diets and an excellent travel section focusing on the vegan scene in Brazil. Finally, I want to share some very exciting news from Vegan Life HQ. As some of you may know we were nominated for the Best Vegan Magazine by the VegFest UK Awards and… we won! I want to say thank you to everyone who voted for Vegan Life and to those who read the magazine. We count ourselves incredibly lucky to have such a loyal readership who are so supportive of what we do. Vegan Life was founded, and is still run, by a team of vegans passionate about making a change in the world. We are seeing the start of that change and we will be with you every step of the way into the future. For now, enjoy the festive period and we will see you in the new year.
