Richard Lima has been a professional model for over 25 years, working for brands such as Ralph Lauren, Versace, and Gap to name a few. He’s done photo shoots for publications like Vogue, Cosmo, and GQ. He is also an endurance athlete, running 100K and 50-mile distances and practicing intense workouts for 4 to 6 hours a day. Most impressive, to us, is that Richard has been completely plant-based in his diet for more than five years now.
On this week's Roving Vegans Adventure, we joined the Hendo Supper Clubfor a scrumptious 5-course meal at Jazzy Vegetarian Cafe, which is housed in theSanctuary Brewing Company. The meal was fabulous. The company was even better. These supper clubs are great ways to make new friends and support your local vegan businesses.
