Nancy Poznak's Gentle Approach to Veganism
The Health and Wellness working group puts out a new podcast every Thursday, revolving around holistic and natural health. To listen to this podcast from Reimagine TCWAC’s ‘Journey Through Health and Wellness’ series, click on the following link:
Nancy Poznak, founder of BotaniCuisine, speaks of the relationship between nutrition and brain function. Every little thing you put into your body has a consecutive affect on your brain. She discusses her journey to veganism and the spirituality quest she embarked on in her teen years, which lead her to become the vegan she is today. As Nancy's goal in life is to be a loving and kind person, Nancy also practices mindfulness and meditation, and explains the benefit of psychological distance. Mindfulness can make a huge difference in not allowing violence to take over our lives. Nancy, and her interviewer, Dr. Elisa Haransky Beck, discuss the essay Nancy wrote for the new Anthology, 'Vegan Voices.' Nancy has a very gentle approach in spreading vegan awareness, and always shows respect and openness towards whoever she is talking to.
Originally working as a graphic designer and print-based art director, Nancy transitioned into health and wellness with a Master's of Science in Health Science, and a certification as a Community Health Education Specialist. She is certified as a Vegan Hospitality Consultant, Health Coach, Vegan Lifestyle and Coach Educator, and Personal Trainer and Group Fitness Instructor. In addition to all the credentials, Nancy is also the founder of BotaniCuisine and of course, supports plant-based food systems.
