posted January 24, 2023 Share Tweet Share After I learned about the unthinkable horrors of animal agriculture in 2009, I found the Main Street Vegan podcast, and began my Vegan journey.

Reposted January 17, 2023 Share Tweet Share Photo credit: Renée Kornbluth Bob and I were invited to the wedding of his close friends’ son. On the response card, we checked off the “Vegan Dinner” option, impressed by the thoughtfulness of our hosts. At the reception, we were served exceptionally beautifully plates of Vegan food. Some of the other guests at our table asked us what we did to get these amazing meals. But the obnoxious man sitting on my left kept sticking forkfuls of lamb under my nose, saying, “Just taste it, it’s so delicious!” Of course, I refused. When it was time for desser ..read more

posted December 27, 2022 Share Tweet Share Navigating Dinner Parties, Happy Hours, and Holiday Festivities While Plant-Based and Health-Focused I don’t like to deprive myself. No one does. It’s hard to resist when there’s a feast of delicious food, drinks are flowing, and you want to let loose without a care in the world. We also don’t want to be “that guest,” the one who’s difficult and asks a million questions. BUT we also don’t want to starve or eat junk and wake up with regret. So, what do we do? Is it even possible to have fun while eating healthy, plant-based meals that are filling an ..read more

I gathered a group of friends and dragged them along on a journey of getting off the rollercoaster of social media and into great books. Last year’s favorites ranged from beginner-friendly to veteran animal warrior. From recipes to lifestyle, family life to animal ethics, we each found a book that spoke to us. There are so many amazing books on Veganism available today. Here are just a few group favorites from last year. Main Street Vegan, by Victoria Moran Photo cred ..read more

Bones and All: A Vegan Review, by Victoria Moran, CHHC, RYT-200

When I was twenty-three, I saw The Exorcist. It was sufficiently terrifying that I waited forty-nine years before going to another movie in the horror genre. That happened two weeks ago, and the movie was the critically acclaimed and Oscar-buzzing film, Bones and All. Its key protagonist is a likeable teenager, Maren, who has a habit that becomes too much for even the single dad who raised her: she’s a cannibal. Taylor Russell as Maren and Timothee Chalamet as Lee, in their leading roles in Bones and All. I broke nearly half a century of horror-movie avoidance to see this one is because the b ..read more

Were you aware that the perfume industry conducts animal tests, often painful ones that cause the  suffering and death of millions of animals every year? Some commercial perfumes, fragrances, and colognes have animal ingredients and synthetics that have been tested on animals. You might expect this from cheap perfume brands, but some big luxury brands also follow t ..read more

. . .Remembering my messy, magical, healing week of “panchakarma” — when ayurveda pulls out all the stops Me, after my first day of panchakarma treatments at the Gerson Institute for Ayurvedic Medicine The instructions said, “Bring clothes you don’t mind getting oily.” I recalled from experiencing panchakarma, ayurveda’s signature detox regimen, previously that it involves oil massage, oil in the nostrils, oil streamed onto the forehead, oil in the hair, even something called basti, an herbalized oil enema. Other than that last one, all this lubricating is really pleasant, and even basti ..read more
