Ep. 66 Traveling As A Vegan | Ft. Wendy Werneth
Today on episode 66 we will be speaking to Wendy Werneth from TheNomadicVegan.com.
The term, “vegan” has become a buzz word in todays culture as we see new restaurants and dishes pop up on menus all around the states. But the reality is it is much more than just a fad, many of us face dietary restrictions with or without choice whether you are gluten-free, vegetarian, celiac, allergic to nuts, eggs, the list goes on.
I have heard the excuse an abundance of times by many that they fear traveling due to the risk of not being able to receive what they need to eat.
Will they have gluten-free options?
I’m afraid I am going to get sick.
I won’t be able to enjoy myself because I can’t find restaurants to eat at.
While this is a legitimate and understandable concern, you know I would never allow for it to hold you back. With the right preparation and research you will be surprised how much of the world you can see and experience with a diet restriction. That is why I am so proud to share with you Wendy’s story. Wendy is a vegan, but not only is she a vegan she is a serious traveler. Traveling to over 100 countries while exploring one of the most restricting diets I know.
Wendy Werneth is an intrepid world traveler, vegan foodie and animal lover. She is the author of the book Veggie Planet and the creator of the award-winning vegan travel blog The Nomadic Vegan, where she uncovers vegan treasures across the globe so that you can be vegan anywhere and spread compassion everywhere.
