Blink-182 Hires Vegan Instagram Star as Chef

Popular plant-based Instagram personality Nomyourself has hit the road with the famous band.

Pop-punk band blink-182 has teamed up with Instagram sensation vegan chef Mary Mattern, otherwise known as @nomyourself, for their new US tour. The 30-year-old chef and cookbook author is currently travelling with the group cross-country, creating plant-based recipes—such as cauliflower chowder with biscuit flats, fishless filet sliders, and apple crumb pie—to help fuel members Mark Hoppus, Matt Skiba, and especially the band’s long-time vegan Travis Barker. “This tour has been absolutely amazing,” Mattern said. “Love cooking for [Travis].” Mattern has made the biggest name for herself on Instagram, where she’s amassed more than 141,000 followers, and where she’s also been sharing her favorite vegan finds while on the road. One of her favorites so far? Vegan mac, barbecue, and broccoli from The Loaded Bowl Truck in Oklahoma City, OK.
