The happy vegan

by Veganpreik

More and more people choose vegan alternatives, whether it’s part of their lifestyle or conviction, or simply because it tastes good. Samuel Rostøl founded the group Veganpreik in November 2014, and the group is now counting more than 12,000 members. Samuel has several tips for those wanting to go on a tasting spree through Oslo’s best vegan food.

– I actually became a vegan through the help I received in the group. I was a vegetarian when I started the group and became a vegan two months later. For me, that’s the best part of the group.
