Corn-free dinner in Sao Paulo at Americas restaurant, try that!

Americas restaurant corn-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, grass feed beef dinner in Sao Paulo
 Address Avenida Paulista, 2295, Consolação, São Paulo  -  SP

The corn free life in Brazil can be tough, but not because the reasons you think.

Meat over there is grass feed, or corn free, if you prefer. Sugar is made from sugar cane, it's naturally corn-free. They have GMO labels in their products as you will see in my next post. Also the cheapest oil for fried food is made of soy beans. Great for Brazilians, but wait...

Here it comes the knock off of Brazilian corn-free lifestyle. Brazilian Government has decided to use only iodized salt all over the country. No one is allowed to use salt without iodine. In fact you don't find another kind of salt over there. This behavior is so cliche as the micromanage Brazilian way to deal with big issues. Seriously, do they need to decide what kind of salt I'm using in my lunch? Yes, they think they need do. 

Here starts the miserable life for those who's having corn allergy. Consider hiding your own sea salt or Himalayan salt in your suitcase if you are going to next World Cup in 2014. Also make sure you are ordering in a "cooking from scratch" restaurant with specific recommendations for no salt in your food.

I truly recommend you run away from buffet foods. I know Brazilians love them, they are easy to find everywhere, but they are plenty of iodized salt, which means they have dextrose (salt) in everything. It may include the greens as lettuce, arugula and so.

While I was in Sao Paulo I was luck for eating in a Americas restaurant, at Paulista Avenue. The manager was very conscious about food allergies he had made grilled beef with stewed vegetables for my dinner. Broccoli  red bell pepper, zucchini, and onion. It was so perfect! I had no reaction (I'm very sensitive to dextrose) and it made me feel confident to go back in the day after.

Don't forget to ask the pineapple mint fresh squeezed juice, and the extra virgin olive oil, it's from Portugal. They are the best in the world!
