For some people, changing directions in life happens quickly. For Kayla Board, owner of the Hustle Brussel, it happened in 2017 when she watched a documentary. The 2014 film, Cowspiracy explores the impact of animal agriculture on the environment. It had a huge impact on Kayla who then transitioned to a plant based diet. It also began her research into vegetarian foods and ideas around them became a passion. She started out eating frozen meals but soon came to realize that while convenient they were still heavily processed.
