Welcome to day two of Vegan MoFo! I want to begin this MoFo season with a post about Puerto Rico for my Latin cuisine theme. As I was laying poolside one day the theme came to me, therefore it seems appropriate to start off with some Puerto Rico love.

During our conversation the owner talked to us about her philosophy about food. She spoke about slow food, the importance of a plant-based diet and health and well-being, gluten, etc. It was nice to meet someone who, like us, thought that food was more than just something you shove in your mouth. Food is fuel. I was starting to have a good feeling about the Island!

If you ever travel to Puerto Rico, I highly recommend that you make a stop to Peace n' Loaf. If you are gluten free, make sure to call ahead as they sometimes run out of the gluten free dough. The place is not located in a touristy area, but it is worth the drive if you have a car.
