Main Street Vegan

Program Overview

Main Street Vegan is a lively hour devoted to your health, well-being, and ways to live lightly and lovingly on planet Earth. Host Victoria Moran will entertain you each week with the latest on the vegan life—it’s not just for celebrities and moguls, but for the guy and gal on Main Street who want to look and feel amazing, eat extraordinary food, help animals, and create a physical body perfectly attuned to spiritual growth. Their guests will range from Unity ministers to vegan authors, activists, physicians, chefs—and even some of those glittery celebs. There’ll be recipes, ideas, ways to go vegan (or “veganward”) at your own pace, and tips for making a difference for animals and the planet at every meal.

Watch the book trailer for Main Street Vegan.


The ideas and opinions expressed on this program do not necessarily reflect the teachings of Unity. Unity respects a wide range of spiritual thoughts and beliefs, as reflected in the diverse range of subjects presented on Unity Online Radio.
