About the Book: Author and holistic health practitioner Victoria Moran started eating a plant-based diet nearly thirty years ago, raised her daughter, Adair, vegan from birth, and now maintains a sixty-pound weight loss. In Main Street Vegan, Moran offers a complete guide to making this dietary and lifestyle shift with an emphasis on practical “baby steps,” proving that you don’t have to have a personal chef or lifestyle coach on speed dial to experience the physical and spiritual benefits of being a vegan. This book provides practical advice and inspiration for everyone—from Main Street to Wall Street, and everywhere between.

About the Author: Victoria Moran is the author of 11 books, and is also an inspirational speaker, monologist, and certified holistic health counselor (HHC, AADP). She is the founder of Main Street Vegan Academy, training vegan lifestyle coaches. Victoria’s latest book, Main Street Vegan, is written with the assistance of her daughter, Adair, an actor, playwright, stunt performer, and lifelong vegan. Victoria’s other titles are the best-selling Creating a Charmed Life (in thirty languages), and the plant-based weight-loss classic, The Love-Powered Diet: Eating for Freedom, Health, & Joy.

The One Green Planet Verdict: Main Street Vegan provides practical tips and advice for anyone who has ever considered going vegan. Our favorite things about this book:

  1. Content – This book is packed with useful information! Most importantly, Moran takes the time to address a number of the most common questions and concerns new (or potential) vegans face. Getting enough protein, keeping costs down, dietary supplements, restaurants, cookouts, raising children, and other relationship considerations. They seem to have thought of everything!
  2. Format – The book conveys a wealth of information via short chapters that are easy to digest and fun to read.
  3. Tone – Honest, relatable, and even inspiring at times; never pretentious or preachy.
  4. Extras – The recipes interspersed throughout the text are a nice touch. From salad to dessert, there’s something for everyone in these selections.

I want to finally become a full vegan and bring along all the members of my family to this challenge! I need all the advise and hints to convince them all (hubby+ five kids from 2 to 22 years old) that eating only veggies and seeds , etc and no meat is not only viable, but healthy and good tasting as well! I need every and all tips available plus that extra info on proteins, supplements and so on so as to make everyone happy and sure of the change, for it to be real and last in time. I can be "less healthy" if I take this trip on my own, but if I am to embark everyone, I must have the right info which I know Main Street Vegan has...... Besides the more we are, the merrier. Not only for us, but for our dear planet and fellow inhabitants, the animals. One Green Planet, I need this book! Thanks for your review!

I became vegan while living in West Texas where the words meat-free were only used when discussing chili. Armed with a very sketchy produce section at my local grocery store and one health foods store that sold mainly gluten-free cookies I was able to make my way. Now I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where the word vegan is common-place. But I am still trying to find my way while educating others. I think this book would be the perfect go-to guide for someone like me.

I've been a vegetarian for 5 years slowly making steps toward becoming vegan. I would love the help that this book could provide!

HI, As a Indian who is a converted vegetarian,I find veganism a big challenge.I converted to a vegetarian due to multiple reasons but as i have been slowly realising for the past few years,being a vegetarian is very good for the environment,health and also it gives you a chance to step out of your comfort zone so very often.But i have never understood being Vegan.I have 2 kids and milk and milk products are a daily staple for them.Wouldnt being Vegan deprive them of soo many nutrients we may be missing..Would this book explain anything about the health benefits of veganism ?

I've been vegan for 4 years and over that time, have read an endless number of books, as I can never read enough and feel that every single book brings something new and important to my life. One of the greatest joys for me has been helping a bunch of others, as they've approached me, to make the transition. What enables me to do this, I believe, *is* the amount of knowledge I've gained from books. I've been building my vegan and healthy eating library over time and often lend out those books to those wanting to learn more. So, I would love to read Main Street Vegan to continue my own education and to have it as a resource to help others. Thank you for this opportunity.

I'm about to reach my second year of being vegan and could use more practical direction and advice. I don't eat junk food and a lot of the benifits I hear of other vegans experiencing like weight loss, better skin and increase in energy have not happened in my case.

To help with all the vegan things that aren't so obvious.
