Kristin Lajeunesse, author of Will Travel For Vegan FoodYou may recall nearly 4 years ago when we first brought you the story of a young Capital Region lady who was about to embark on a vegan food tour around the country.

With very little cash and a lot of faith in people's generosity, Kristin Lajeunesse of Hoosick Falls had a mission to visit all 50 states and sample and review every 100% vegan eatery each had to offer, including restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops and food trucks.
