“I used to work at a convenience store and would eat the food without paying for it. I started gaining a few pounds and began to worry about getting scurvy because of all the processed food I was eating. I couldn’t quit the free doughnuts and soda pop until I quit the job.
“Here in Portland, we have the most amazing vegan convenience store called Food Fight. Unfortunately, outside of the city, my band mates and I don’t have many options when perusing mini-marts. We usually stop for a drink or sometimes grab a bag of chips, but we definitely can’t rely on the ‘fresh’ deli food which looks pretty disgusting anyway.”
