Now in paperback! A beloved Hollywood fixture, Alicia Silverstone has become one of its most visible and passionate advocates for the environment and its animals. Since declaring herself a vegetarian at the age of eight, she has been on a campaign to eliminate all animal products from her life. At the same time she has, like many people, become concerned about the impact on the environment of raising animals for food. The unexpected and remarkable results of her meat-free, plant-based diet: She has lost weight, gained energy, and seen amazing improvements in her skin. In The Kind Diet, Alicia shares how her journey toward a vegan and now (most of the time) macrobiotic diet has left her feeling better than she ever thought possible.
Filled with personal anecdotes and motivational tips, her three-part program features nearly 100 crowd-pleasing and easy recipes to keep readers and the planet happy. Alicia proves that being vegan doesn’t mean giving up great food with delicious desserts such as Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups or Brown Rice Crispy Treats. Part memoir, diet plan, and keepsake cookbook with stunning full-color photography, there has never been a more appealing argument for jumping on the vegan bandwagon.Whether readers are simply curious about life after meat or ready for a more demanding (and infinitely more rewarding) macrobiotic approach, The Kind Diet will help transform the way they feel about food, the environment--and themselves.
