Kristin Lajeunesse Travels to America's Best Vegan Restaurants
Truth or Dare? I dare you to quit your job, leave friends and family behind and take a year-long roadtrip to find the best vegan fare. Yup, that's exactly what Kristin Lajeunesse, the brain behind the Will Travel for Vegan Food project, did! Funded by Kickstarter, Kristin is traveling cross country eating only 100% vegan food. She is determined to document her whole journey as she interviews restaurant owners, shares her foodie favorites and even has a run-in with the law! This video for HooplaHa marks the official halfway mark on her Will Travel for Vegan Food journey!
"My name is Kristin Lajeunesse and I'm a self-employed entrepreneur who currently lives in a van, works from a computer, and is traveling around the country in an effort to eat at all of the vegan restaurants I can find. A little over a year ago I left my 9-5 job and started my own business so that I could work from the road. In the fall of 2011 I started Will Travel For Vegan Food, a one-year-long vegan food focused road trip across the US. All 50 states, and all of the 100% vegan restaurants. On February 14, 2011 I launched Rose Pedals Vegan Weddings, a website dedicated to providing resources for vegan couples looking to tie the cruelty-free knot. And in January of 2011 I founded KALE MEDIA, which is a one-woman social media consulting business."
