Veggies from Brazil!

In Brazil, 8% of population is vegetarian (Ibope, 2012), which represents about 16 million people. We are a huge group! Given that we are all very interesting people :) , I decided to create this group so we can make new friends and share information about vegetarian restaurants, shops, etc. So, veggies from Brazil, please join the group and be welcome!

Welcome first members, it's really nice to have you here! I hope we can exchange a lot of information here from now on.
Now, I'm going to sleep ;)

Ainda há poca gente vegetariana e existe um certo estigma social no Brasil, mas esse quadro tá mudando. Cada dia mais pessoas se interessam por essa dieta e muitas - se não deixam de comer carne - ao menos reduzem drasticamente a quantidade e a frequência do consumo.

We are multiplying quickly, now we are 10!
Vinicius, I agree with you...when I became vegetarian more than 10 years ago it was hard to find veg products and people interested in the subject. Now we can find everywhere. That's great! If not stop eating meat, many people try the "segunda-feira sem carne", which is a fantastic idea....

What is the geographic coverage of Brazil in this group? Where are you from people? Is that easy to be vegetarian there? I live in Sao Paulo, and we have many excellent vegetarian restaurants here...

Hey! I'm from Acre (yes, we are real) and is way harder to be a vegetarian in here. In fact I only know one person other me who is a vegetarian too in my town and is a small town. When we are vegetarian people are sometimes rude and think we are aliens... we don't have any vegetarian restaurant. I can't eat in my university if I don't bring something... I'm loving to meet you and figuring out that I am not an alien lol

Wow, I always thought Acre was a myth! Lol
Well, some years ago, when I became vegetarian it was almost impossible to find other vegetarians, or to find a veg restaurant, or to find veg products in a supermarket. Maybe it's a matter of time to people in your city change their minds...
It's awful when people think we are aliens...but in these cases I try to turn the tables because in fact they should follow me and stop cruelty. You're not an alien, they are aliens! Haha
