In this episode of the Conversations with Vegan Women Leaders podcast, we interview Victoria Moran, vegan author, pioneer, and founder of the Main Street Vegan Academy.
At the age of 14, Victoria covered a Beatles press conference for a teen magazine. That sparked an illustrious career as a writer, bestselling author and inspirational speaker.
A vegan of 37 years, Victoria’s college thesis Compassion: The Ultimate Ethic, published in 1985, was the first work on vegan philosophy and practice to come from a major publisher.
She’s the author of an additional 13 books including the bestselling Creating a Charmed Life; The Love Powered Diet which reflects on her own struggle with and recovery from compulsive eating; Shelter for the Spirit; Younger by the Day; The Good Karma Diet; Main Street Vegan and more.
Victoria has appeared on Oprah twice, as well as Good Morning America and many other media outlets and is the host of the award-winning Main Street Vegan podcast on Unity Radio.
Since 2012 Victoria has run the Main Street Vegan Academy in New York, which teaches people to become certified vegan lifestyle coaches and run their own businesses.
Her latest role is lead producer of Thomas Wade Jackson’s wonderful documentary, A Prayer for Compassion, which introduces vegan living to people of faith.
In this conversation Victoria talks about:
• How, as a teen, she got to cover the Beatles press conference and meet Paul McCartney
• How spirituality came into her life as a child
• How her spiritual practice helped her cope as a single mother of a young child after her first husband committed suicide
• Her experience with obesity and a binge eating disorder and how she overcame them
• Why some women blossom with age while others wither
• Her experiences of being a writer and how she’s handled changes in the profession over the years
• And more
