My band mate Rob and I are both vegans. We don't have much difficulty maintaining our specific diet on tour (peep our flickr foodie pics), but I do find myself eating a lot more starches on the road than I would choose to eat at home. As soon as I'm back at my crib in LA, I go a little crazy making juice (documented on my instagram: maryjp33) and enjoying the great produce we have here in Southern California.
