Adam Guthrie From I Feel Good Magazine Interviews Lauren Camilleri aka Lol, the co-creator of the vegan eateries on Bali - Kynd Community, Give Cafe and Kynd Creamery.
Lol is currently living out her dream life in Bali. Since turning to a plant-based vegan lifestyle she noticed the positive effects it had on her physically, mentally and most significantly, spiritually. Her passion for people, food and veganism allowed her to open her very first cafe when she was 19 years old. She is the co-owner of Kynd Cafe where there number 1 mission is to spread kynd-ness and show people just how good plant-based food really tastes.
She believes that one of the keys to happiness is to give more which, meant they later opened their second cafe in Canggu called GIVE. Which is a 100% not-for-profit cafe that donates all profits to 3 Bali based charities to help the people, the planet and the animals that need it.
The Creamery is the latest addition to the family and offers plant-based ice-cream and cruelty free merchandise. Becoming vegan was the start of Lol's spiritual journey and since then she has discovered that connection is key and is what she feels will change the world. Connection to our inner-selves, connection to spirit, connection to our planet and its people and most importantly the connection to the foods we consume.
With no experience, degrees or any formal qualifications prior to opening the cafes, Lol explains that purpose, passion, and a clear mission are essential to achieving your dreams and creating a life you love.
