    Have you ever felt stuck? Trapped in your current life situation and yearning for change? Also, do you really really really like vegan food? Well if you haven’t heard of Kristin Lajeunesse, she’s way ahead of you. A little over a year and a half ago Kristin celebrated her five-year veganiversary by quitting her job as a successful social media manager, ending a long-term relationship, selling all her “crap”, and buying Gerty, a green ’95 Chevy sports van. Kristin had one goal in mind: to eat at every 100% vegan restaurant in these United States of America. She successfully ran a Kickstarter campaign, “Will Travel For Vegan Food” with a target of $9,682 and pledges of $12,560, made some mods to Gerty: removed the seats, built-in a loft bed, added storage and a chest for clothes, and hit the road. She is, of course, documenting the process and there’s also some blogging, vlogging, Facebooking, Instagramming, and Tweeting going on.

    Kristin gladly accepts breakfast/lunch/dinner/shower invitations, so last week, I had the distinct pleasure of breaking bread with her at Real Food Daily in Santa Monica, California– and she didn’t make me feel even a teeny bit stalkery. Poised to be the absolute authority on vegan dining in America, she managed to find a few moments in-between meals to answer our questions and let us live vicariously through her for a little bit longer.

    SuperVegan: Tell us about your trip so far: where have you been and how long have you been on the road?

    Kristin: I’ve been on the road for 14 months now and have visited 46 states so far. The states I have left to visit are: Oregon, Washington, Alaska, and North Dakota (if I get to that one) ;)

    Which restaurants have been some of your favorites so far?

    I recently wrote a blog post naming my top 10 restaurants of the past year. But so far, my favorite remains Vedge in Philadelphia.

    Any real misses? You don’t have to name names if you don’t want to, but have you been given anything inedible or just bad to eat? Any states you don’t ever feel the need to go back to? Continue Reading…
