Vegan Pressure Cooking

Say goodbye to long cooking and preparation times. With a pressure cooker, you can cook filling, nutritious meals in under an hour and with little mess or cleanup. It's not only delicious, but easy too! With Vegan Pressure Cooking, you'll learn all of the ins and outs of pressure cooking--including why there's no need to be scared of trying something new! From choosing a pressure cooker that suits you best to understanding the ingredients that are perfect for pressure cooking - including beans, grains, hearty vegetables, and more.

Vegan for Her

Vegan for Her, a blueprint for optimal health and wellness at any age, will show you how to: lower your risk for breast cancer and heart disease; manage conditions like arthritis and migraines; diminish PMS and cramps; build strong bones for life; enhance fertility; make an easy transition to a vegan diet; and incorporate principles of both fashion and compassion into your home and wardrobe.

Next month marks a special occasion: my three-year anniversary as a  Main Street Vegan Academy vegan lifestyle coach and educator.

I realized this when chatting with Victoria Moran recently. Victoria is the author of numerous books, including Main Street Vegan and most recently the The Good Karma Diet (enter to win a copy of her book here), She launched her vegan lifestyle coach and educator Academy in 2012 and I’m honored to have attended the inaugural training.

Main Street Vegan VLCE

I wrote about that experience here on the blog:

I cannot believe the profound impact the Main Street Vegan Academy has had on me. Three years later: a cross-country move, two books, finding my way in a new community, a monthly vegan dining review in the local paper, and an entire new career.

I’m even on the advisory board, and faculty, of the Academy now. I travel back to NYC four to five times a year to teach a session on how new coaches can use their certification to build a viable career following their vegan passion.

Even cooler? The number of people who read this blog, or attended local cooking and lifestyle classes with me, who enrolled in the Academy and became Main Street Vegan VLCE’s, too. Like Ashley, Sarah, and Matt.

When Victoria and I were reflecting on the first three years of the Academy – and my evolution from trainee to VLCE to advisory/faculty member – we decided to do something fun. I am offering a special Friends of the Academy discount for the August 2015 training (August 7 – 12)!
