In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Kristin Lajeunesse and how she will travel for vegan food! Kristin started this journey when she decided to hit the road and eat in every single vegan restaurant in the USA. Throughout the show we explore what urged her to do this and of course vegan travel. Many people feel they cannot sustain their values while travelling, but when you are done with this show you will feel like a pro and you’ll rock your plant-based or vegan summer voyages!
Kristin Lajeunesse is founder of and writer for the award-winning website Will Travel for Vegan Food. In September 2011, the New York native began traveling throughout the US in an effort to eat at every single all-vegan establishment she could find. Eighteen of those early consecutive travel months were spent living out of a renovated sports van affectionately named Gerty.
As of July 2014, Kristin met her goal of visiting and eating in each of the 50 states and in April 2015 became a first-time traditionally published author with her memoir: Will Travel for Vegan Food: A Young Woman’s Solo Van-Dwelling Mission to Break Free, Find Food, and Make Love. In 2016 Kristin was selected as part of a winning team for VeganTravel.com to embark on an around-the-world journey, documenting vegan food and culture wherein she visited 20 countries. Since returning to the US Kristin is now focused on creating the first nationally televised vegan travel show. A self-employed restaurant marketing strategist and promotional video maker, Kristin has chosen to maintain a location-independent lifestyle indefinitely. She has a Master of Arts in Integrated Marketing Communication from Emerson College.
