…a stereotypical thirty-one year old based in St. Louis, Missouri. Besides an insufferable love of Game of Thrones and hot yoga, I am thoroughly committed to living a plant-based lifestyle. I live to travel (… and eat) and I’ve found that at least half of the thrill of my trips is planning and researching the places to go and alllll the fun things to eat prior to reaching my destination.
While planning our honeymoon to Japan in the fall of 2017, I realized there was a serious lack of material out there for folks like my husband, Justin (a fellow veghead) and me- when travelling, we want to immerse ourselves in the culture and are dedicated to experiencing the local cuisine, without compromising our lifestyle choices. For some bizarre reason, the few vegan travel bloggers I could find seemed to focus on partaking in Westernized food whilst traipsing the world, instead of how (and where!) to veganize local foods.
In a decided revolt against being relegated to a lifetime of eating black bean burgers (from the Midwestern United States to the jungles of Bali), The Uprooted Traveler was born unto the world in 2018, to help document Justin’s and my travels and to resolve the age-old question of “What the hell does a vegan eat in Iceland?” Join us as we attempt to answer this and other burning questions while wandering around the United States and beyond.
