SAVE AN ANIMAL TODAY!
“When you can look at an animal in the eye and know you saved them,” that makes an tremendous impact on you says Victoria Moran. “I do this for the animals pure and simple, however, I also am vegan for my health.”
ARE YOU A HEALTH VEGAN OR AN ANIMAL VEGAN?
Those who are vegan because of their love of animals, will not make exception and not be vegan “sometimes” or occasionally. Those who are vegan for health reasons will make exceptions and “sometimes” eat meat.
BUT I EAT LOCALLY SOURCED HUMANE MEAT?
There is not humane meat because an animal was killed. It doesn’t matter if they were free range or grass fed, they were killed for you to consume them. We do not need animals in our diets to live or even live will. You are NOT compromising your health by being meat-free.
GREENS AND JUICING
“We used to eat a lot of brown foods like brown rice, brown granola, brown breads. However, when you start to eat more bright, fresh, colorful foods; you will feel like a million bucks,” says Victoria.
ORGANIC IS NOT ELITIST
Some people thing organic is for the rich and elite. This is simply not true. This is an investment in your body. You only have one life and one body. This is a matter of priorities. If you value your health and your life; organic is a choice, the choice. “Buy organic as often as you can!” says Victoria.
Organic is not genetically modified and not sprayed with chemicals. The soil organic produce grows in is nourished and crops are rotated and gives you the best quality produce. It has even been proven that they are even scientifically higher nutrients.
WHAT IS A VEGAN ACADEMY?
“This is an intense intensive starting with opening classes and dinner the first evening of the course, then going all day for the next four days, and until early afternoon on the final day. There will be breaks for meals and personal time, of course.
A high point of the Main Street Vegan® experience is always the educational field trips to a raw vegan emporium, an eco-store, an Indian spice market, vegan bakery, leather-free shoe store, and to the Vaute Couture boutique where, when she’s in town, we get a fabulous presentation and Q & A from founder/designer Leanne Hilgart.
We’ll have lunch out together on field trip day at a classic NYC vegan eatery, and an optional post-session graduation luncheon at another of NYC’s noteworthy vegan restaurants.
If some special vegan or animal rights event is taking place in the city during your course, we try to arrange for our students to be part of this, as well.” (excerpt from website & learn more: http://mainstreetvegan.net/academy/)
