“We feel that a lot of misconceptions come from people think that vegan food or plant-based food is just spinach and plants… Although a lot of the food is plant-based and it’s not made with meat or dairy, we end up with beautiful [dishes],” said Ocampo.
He said there are unhealthy and unhealthy vegan meals.
