One Woman’s Journey Around America Via Vegan Restaurants

Share Article

In an effort to eat at every vegan restaurant in the US, Kristin Lajeunesse is nearly halfway through her quest, and she's coming to New Orleans next!

Kristin Lajeunesse quit her 9 to 5 job to travel all 50 states in search of vegan restaurants, and now she is headed to New Orleans! While in the Big Easy she be will be dining at The Wandering Buddha and Superfood Bar, The Green Goddess and Bennachin.

“This trip has developed into so much more than food and travel. I’ve met incredible people and have fallen in love with living on the go. While these two elements are the outlying forces surrounding my desire to bound across the country, what I really want to accomplish is a lifestyle of self-discovery and nonconformity.”

When not heaping piles of bbq tempeh onto her plate, Kristin will be meeting with members of the New Orleans vegetarian and vegan community, as well as speaking to local press affiliates to spread her message of the importance of a delicious, cruelty-free plant based diet. She is determined to enlighten the country about vegan living’s ability to benefit body, mind, and taste buds; not to mention the animals.

Since departing from her Massachusetts home, Kristin has made her way to NYC, Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington D.C., among dozens of other cities and towns across many states. She has given talks in Cocoa Beach, FL and met with restaurateurs in Philadelphia, PA.
