BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT

Vegan Puerto Morelos – Healthy Plant-Based Lifestyle

There is a saying I like ~ “When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Get Going.”

Starting a business at the height of a pandemic is not easy but Vegan Puerto Morelos did just that, four months ago.

I am going through some lifestyle changes as far as my diet goes. I am eating lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, no eggs, no dairy (but this isn’t new – I haven’t eaten dairy in a couple of years with the exception of cheese) and therein lies my weakness. I really really like cheese.  Hubby is very supportive but I don’t think he is quite ready to give up eggs or meat full time. That’s ok. He puts up with the crazy meals I throw together and doesn’t complain – often :).

I am trying the plant-based diet and when I occasionally do fall off the wagon, it is usually fish or chicken that I am indulging in. I also tell myself that exercising at one of the local parks every other day makes up for when I do indulge. Works for me :).

I am actually enjoying it, so when I came across Gabriel’s Vegan products, I was ecstatic.

In Gabriel’s own words:

“We started because we want to offer an option to animal protein and products; many people don’t know the benefits of the vegan and vegetarian diets, and many don’t know that there are options.

The paradigm is that many believe that Vegan Products are expensive and are only for those that are 100% vegan. This misconception causes those who are not familiar with vegan diets to stay away.

We want to shift this paradigm and offer affordable and quality Vegan Products to everyone, so they have the freedom and the chance to make a choice.” ~ Gabriel

Gabriel’s passion for healthy eating stems from his friends and Colombian wife, who spent time travelling in the Amazon jungle and surrounding communities, learning about vegan nutrition.

Gabriel also tells me that he is the ‘cook and bottle washer’ – doing everything from operating his online business to buying to delivering to cleaning!

Since this is my first real attempt to eat more plant-based foods, I have lots of questions, and Gabriel has the answers. I ask his opinion on many products and he steers me in the right direction.

Testimonials

“No soy vegetariana estricta, sin embargo, desde hace más de 10 años me ha interesado el tema de una alimentación saludable y balanceada además de que si bien, tampoco soy vegana, me da mucho gusto saber que al reducir mi consumo de productos animales y poder sustituirlos con productos alternativos en mi dieta diaria, puedo aportar un granito de arena al cuidado del medio ambiente y a evitar en alguna medida la sobreexplotación animal.

Es por esto que estoy muy contenta de haber encontrado a Vegan Puerto Morelos, ya que aquí en nuestra localidad no había un lugar con la variedad y calidad de productos como los que ellos nos ofrecen y mucho menos con los precios que manejan, además de que el trato con sus clientes es inmejorable, siempre están al pendiente de lo que necesitas y dispuestos a resolver cualquier duda o a orientarte con la mejor actitud, lo cual agradezco mucho.”  ~ Pamela B.

 

“Vegan Puerto Morelos me ha facilitado la vida de manera considerable. A pesar de que los productos veganos son difíciles de conseguir, sobre todo en plena contingencia de salud en Puerto Morelos, ellos me han brindado de opciones de alimentos en la puerta de mi casa e incluso en horarios difíciles. Y lo mejor es que los costos son aun mejores que comprando en Cancún o Playa del Carmen, y que han sido super amables. Estoy verdaderamente agradecida y los recomiendo ampliamente!” ~ Tania I.

 

“Thank you to the Friends of Puerto Morelos Facebook group for steering me to Gabriel and Vegan Puerto Morelos. From the moment I connected, ordered, and received my products, the customer service was exceptional. I am enjoying the products, especially the shredded mozzarella cheese and the delicious fibre biscuits. There are several more products I intend to try. With Gabriel’s guidance, I am sure I will choose the right products for me. If you are vegan, living a plant-based lifestyle, or wish to eat less meat, I urge you to try his products. Thank you Gabriel; You have gained me as a customer! ” ~ Mary Ann M.

Final Thoughts

We hope you take the time to order from Vegan Puerto Morelos. What I am learning is that you won’t be hungry eating this way. I am very full after eating a meal prepared with vegan products but I am not full AND bloated – just full and comfortable.

I love to travel and my biggest regret is that I waited so long to do it, thinking I just couldn’t afford it. I have had some crazy fun, met some amazing people, and had some scary moments such as getting locked in a shower at a campsite. For our trip to Mexico, we were able to save money by house sitting, which was something completely new to us. If this is something that interests you, then check out TrustedHousesitters or HouseSitMexico. We hope you visit often.
