The vegan diet continues to rise in popularity, and so it becomes a topic of conversation here in Ikaria with Thea Parikos.

What does she think about an exclusive plant-based diet?

How do residents on the Blue Zone of Ikaria approach animal protein?

What role does home grown, organic, seasonal and local have on the locals food choices?

We discuss the practice of raising animals, the animal protein debate, and the price of food.

And we also ask Thea about the carnivore diet. Her response is fascinating!

As always with Thea, we cover a lot of topics in a short period of time!
