Live With Purpose Portugal

We love to explore the world, indulge in delicious vegan food and most importantly, connect with groups of compassionate, like-minded individuals. And who better to embark on another exciting journey with than our uber talented friend and vegan food expert Lauren Toyota from hot for food

Shocking sunsets, a city trip to Lisbon, tile-painting, wine-tasting, a hike through the village of Sintra and mouth-watering vegan Pastel de Nata are just a few of the awesome highlights we’ll enjoy on this adventure through culture-rich Portugal. 

As always, we’ll work hand-in-hand with Lauren to create a vegan menu that is the perfect mix of delicious hot for food highlights and local cuisine. 

Portugal is very progressive in vegan cuisine with a great understanding of what it means to live a plant-based lifestyle. With that in mind, it is the perfect backdrop to help us connect and Live With Purpose in another new and breath-taking setting.
