Today Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian welcomes Victoria Moran to chat about wellness and veganism. Ms. Moran is the author of eleven books, a certified holistic health counselor (HHC, AADP) in private practice, and director of Main Street Vegan Academy, training vegan lifestyle coaches. Her latest book is Main Street Vegan, which VegNews magazine calls “The Vegan Bible, New Testament.” A two-time Oprah! guest, winner of “Vegan of the Year” for 2012, and host of the Main Street Vegan Show on Unity.FM radio, Victoria lives in a green condo in New York City.
In our fast-paced, stressful lives, our physical and mental well-being often take a backseat to juggling work and family responsibilities. Like yoga, the art of tai chi provides a refuge from our hectic schedules and brings mind and body into harmony, making both stronger. We will talk with tai chi master and Taoist monk, Arthur Rosenfeld, about the fundamentals of this martial art. He will explain how this ancient practice is still relevant and useful in our modern lives and how veganism comes naturally from the kind of compassion that any Taoist practice develops.
Master Arthur Rosenfeld is the author of Tai Chi – The Perfect Exercise: Finding Health, Happiness, Balance and Strength. In addition to toning muscle, tai chi also lowers blood pressure, helps with sleep, heightens immune system response, improves focus, increases sexual vitality, and helps ease the symptoms of many diseases such as asthma, insomnia, arthritis, chronic fatigue, Parkinson’s, and hypertension. Please join us as we explore tai chi and veganism as a path to a calmer, fitter, healthier life.
One of our favorite topics to discuss, Audrey and I get into the nutritional details of veganism and vegetarianism, whether or not you can do them and still be healthy, and how to do it right. In addition, we talk about finding your purpose, discovering better digestion, and enjoying life the right way.
