Lisa Kemmerer, PhD, outlines the ethical matrix of animal rights, Isaac Thomas of VeganNation moves the vegan economy forward.
Internationally known for work across interfacing concerns of justice and founder of Tapestry: Women’s Institute of Integrated Justice, Lisa Kemmerer is a philosopher-activist and award-winning author with nine books, including Eating Earth (2014), Animals and World Religions (2012), and Sister Species (2011).
Isaac’s career spans 17 years of entrepreneurial ventures in real estate and healthcare, where he acquired, developed, consulted and led visionary projects in the multifamily and senior housing sectors. Isaac’s passion for promoting a healthy lifestyle goes back to his earliest years in business and has come back full circle when several years ago he completed his health transformation and dedicated his life to the vegan lifestyle. He found that living life as a vegan came with many barriers and caused the lifestyle to be difficult and impossible at times.
A shoutout to our sponsor, Complement. Developed by vegan dietitian Dr. Pamela Fergusson, and the NoMeat Athlete, Matt Frazier, Complement enables you to get your vitamin B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA & EPA) in a totally vegan form that you just spray into your mouth once a day and know that your already great diet now has the full complement of essential nutrients. Click here for more info and to order. Use the code MAINSTREETVEGAN for a 10% discount.
And now the good folks of Complement have a new product: Complement Plus. While everyone agrees that B12, vitamin D3, and the essential Omega 3 fatty acids are nutrients people eating plant-based diets (and a lot of other people besides) should not overlook, there are some other nutrients that it’s also easy to be short on, even with a well-chosen diet. To tackle this, Fergusson and Frazier joined forces with Joel Kahn, MD, and together developed Complement Plus, a supplement in tablet form that includes all the nutrients in Complement spray, along with zinc, iodine, selenium, and vitamin K2. Essential for blood clotting, healthy bones, and heart health, the only plant-food source of vitamin K2 is natto, an obscure, fermented soy food and one that is definitely an acquired taste (and smell). To get Complement Plus at a discount, simply go to www.alpineorganics.co (where you can order regular Complement, as well), but this time your discount code will be MAINSTREETVEGAN+.
