Making the conscious decision to become a Vegan has not come without its challenges, however, I am proud to say it has currently been over a year and I’m still going strong. Initially, when taking up this diet, I had the wonderful support of my partner to enlighten me of the multiple options available to me. I believe that without this support, I would have struggled even more and possibly fail.
Other than the difficulties of finding local vegan options in London, I also started to anticipate the difficulties when travelling and how would this diet coexist with my passion for travelling. Being from St Lucia, I couldn’t initially think of how we’d survive if I were to ever take my partner there. I initially thought of packing extra baggage of soya milk, cornflakes and any vegan junk I could think of, and then realised there was no need for all of that. There are numerous options around us, wherever we go and they’re wholesome and filling too. We often fail to see them in plain sight, however I want to bring them to light.
I want to relieve you of that burden and share my experiences of travelling whilst maintaining my diet through this platform. I hope that my stories will enlighten you to realise that we are not limited in what we can have and no compromise is needed. I will also use this blog to speak about my local experiences in London and provide a guide to being a vegan in London.
My name is Diandra and I’m a Vegan Abroad!
