Can Meatless Food Travel Be Really ‘Authentic’?
“Your body is not a temple. It’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.” – Anthony Bourdain
Well, you don’t always have to agree with your idol, do you? I happen to believe you can explore local cuisines while keeping it largely wholesome, healthy and sustainable. You can respect both local traditions AND the planet. (And your body, while you’re at it).
Admittedly, there are destinations where sticking to local cuisine while avoiding meat is much more difficult than others. But I promise you – with a little imagination and research you CAN skip the meat and not just survive but genuinely THRIVE.
During my travels across 6 continents I have made it my mission to help you discover the best of each cuisine while cutting out those steaks. Sometimes it’s vegan, sometimes vegetarian, and sometimes pescatarian. It’s always delicious and – most importantly – LOCAL. (Falafel in Japan? No thanks.)
I believe going MEATLESS is the kind of compromise anyone can subscribe to. When traveling and beyond.
Small mindful steps for the planet, while getting to know her incredible flavors and the people behind them. That’s my humble recipe for responsible food travel. Change starts with each of us. Will you join the ride?
