I purchased Alicia Silverstone’s book, The Kind Diet, today. It is an amazing read for those that are health conscious, as well as earth conscious. Alicia has put her heart and soul into this book, as well as creating nutritious vegan recipes that are sexy, as she would say, and exotic. It has opened my eyes in a very positive way learning about the dramatic impact industries have on our environment and our health.
I love the fact that she understands that majority of Americans do not lead a healthy life – full of processed foods, dairy, meat, resulting in little or no greens, fresh vegetables or grains. While she has always been an animal loving vegetarian, she knows the difficulty of change. Alicia offers supporting words and a simple outlook on how to incorporate a “kinder” way to eat in our daily life. She calls it Flirting – and it’s really that simple.
I know a lot of my readers eat meat and dairy and enjoy every bite. I am vegetarian, 99% of the time, and am trying very hard to cut back on my dairy…. but cheese is just so damn loveable! The entire vegan world has opened my eyes, and continues to open my eyes, to a way of life filled with wholesome alternatives to my everyday eating and living. Each and everyday I strive to bring my health to it’s peak – and I hope you will do the same.
