Hollywood celebrities are doing it. Corporate moguls are doing it. But what about those of us living in the real world-and on a real budget? Author and holistic health practitioner Victoria Moran started eating only plants nearly thirty years ago, raised her daughter, Adair, vegan from birth, and 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.

"Finally, a book that isn't preaching to the vegan choir, but to the people in the pews-and the ones who can't fit in those pews. This is a book for the Main Street majority who aren't vegans. Once you read this, you'll know it's possible to get healthy and enjoy doing it-even if you live in Paramus or Peoria."-Michael Moore
