This edition of What Vegans Eat comes from Liv Kyte. Liv and I met last Summer and went vegan at around the same time (after watching Cowspiracy). She will be off travelling for a year in just a few weeks. Over to her and her food diary…
Name: Liv Kyte
Occupation: Unemployed as going travelling for a year.
Vegan Since: September 2015
I like to eat a LOT of veg and greens, which seem to have lacked in my post. I can only put this down to the fact that it’s quite an unusual week as I’m living at my boyfriend’s parent’s house for two weeks before we leave for travelling. This means I am being cooked for/eating out a lot more than normal! Coming from Brighton originally we are totally spoilt for choice, but this week has really shown me you really can be vegan anywhere.
