  1. So is, una de las maravillas de estar super conectados es que la información vuela y remueve la conciencia. Excellent article, me cabe apuntar por mi experiencia como vegana y como Chef Veggie, que las opciones vegetarianas actuales en mucho sitios distan de agradarme, sobre todo a la hora de suplir una pizza o una burger, no olvidemos que son dos de los fundamentos de la gastronomía de masas, que van cobrando fuerza, alcanzando las cotas de gastronomía gourmet.
