Meeting people that truly inspire me is a real treat in the work that I do. I love to read and so I have cultivated a nice library of books that I like to read for inspiration, information and of course recipes. The bonus is when I contact an author and ask them to come on my radio program, The Fresh Cafe, and we schedule a segment together to chat about their work.
I then go to work to present them and they are the show for 30 minutes. It is such a joy to share that time with people I learn from and a pleasure to share these little gems with you.
A lovely and inspiring woman, Victoria Moran has written over a dozen books. I have read a few of them and I can tell you, she is a good writer. I would highly recommend two of my favorites, The Main Street Vegan and The Karma Diet. I attended Victoria’s talk at the Vegfest in 2012 and I was so intrigued by her personal story of why she became a vegan back in her college days over 30 years ago. Victoria struggled with being overweight as a child from the mid western diet her family practiced. Her father was a doctor and put Victoria on diet plans of deprivation, which never worked and added to her frustration and confidence as a young girl. When she became a vegan after college, she dropped 60 pounds and has never gained it back, over 30 years and still trim and energetic as a teenager!
Victoria is a leader in the vegan world with over 12 published books. She is a holistic health counselor and she started the Main Street Vegan Academy to teach people how to be a vegan lifestyle coach. And her latest accolade, Victoria was voted to be the 2016 Sexiest Vegan Peta. Check out her books and listen in to one of her podcasts.
