- New Kids on the Block, Step by Step (1990
There's a New Kid on the Block and her name is Julie Tuesday. Do you live in the New York metropolitan area? Julie has clients in each of New York's seven boroughs which include Westchester and Northern New Jersey. In addition, she'll have Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island too...Julie shares her home with companion cats, and is an accomplished vegan triathlete! Contact Julie at VeganIn3.
There's a New Kid on the Block and his name is Greg Lawson and he is from El Paso, Texas. Work with Greg and you'll have a muy Rio Grande tiempo! Greg was once president of the Vegan Society of El Paso and is a yearly keynote speaker at America's annual animal rights conference. Greg is an employee of the U.S. National Park Service, and as a Park Service Ranger, one of his passions is looking out for the interests of unfenced free range bison. Contact Greg by email.
There's a New Kid on the Block and her name is Rene Steelman and she 's from the Portland, Oregon/Vancouver, Washington area. If you live near Portland/Vancouver and require inspiration and wisdom from a magnificent Vegan Trainer, get 'waisted' with Rene. Portland is home to a rapidly-expanding raw vegan population and contains more microbreweries than I’ve ever seen in any other city, and a unique choice of downtown vegan food carts to select snacks or lunches from. All of the above contribute to Portland’s unofficial slogan, “Keep Portland Weird”. To Work with Rene is to know and enjoy the weirdest sort of personal vegan training, and I write that with awe and respect of her uncanny nutrition knowledge. Contact Rene at NW Get Waisted.
There are hundreds of new kids on the block, and they are all graduates of Victoria Moran's prestigious Main Street Vegan Academy in New York City. Each New Kid is skilled at guiding clients to eat an animal-friendly, environment-friendly, and people-friendly diet which does much more than just help animals and prevent global warming.
This plant-based diet represents the leading edge of 22nd-century medicine (practiced by Dr. 'Bones' McCoy on the Starship Enterprise) that utilizes the three best forms of healing when the subject is cancer, heart disease, or bone disease. And what are the 3 best methods of healing? Prevention, prevention, and prevention!
By eating a plant-based diet, one will prevent diseases which plague 21st century man. These New Kids on the block are trained to ease clients into that sometimes difficult transition which does more than result in harmlessness to animals. You are about to practice ahimsa to your own body. Animal rights? This new vegan ideal is concerned with People Rights!
Join a gym, and your membership fee usually includes a free workout session with a professional trainer having some degree of expertise in getting your body and muscles into shape. Such trainers are familiar with that gym's equipment, and can make your transition from a sedentary lifestyle to that of a gym-rat an easy one, with training sessions geared to preventing injury while motivating clients to become more fit through aerobic exercise and strength training. After your free gym session, you have the opportunity to take advantage of that instructor's services for a small fee. Many people choose to do so on a weekly basis.
In much the same manner, there are New Kids on your block who can coach you to make that challenging transition from that typical American eating the Standard American Diet (the S.A.D. diet) to one who eats a plant-based diet.
Yesterday, a cardiologist performed a triple bypass. Yesterday, an oncologist finished his protocol of chemotherapy and radiation to zap a patient's tumor. Yesterday, a gastroenterologist removed part of a young man's Chronic-diseased colon.
Who they gonna call to restore a patient's equilibrium? No, not the roast-busters, and no, not the toast busters! They're gonna call A New Kid on the Block!
Transitioning to become a vegan is often best done with a coach. A trainer. A teacher. A mentor. A guru. The process is one akin to being reborn. Hire a vegan trainer and become an entirely new creature. You will experience that "rebirth" moment.
A rebirth out of spiritual adversity causes us to
become new creatures.
