Although Alicia Silverstone is a huge proponent of vegan eating, she admits that she sometimes lets herself eat something that contains animal products. Dairy is her weakness, reports FitPerez. “If I was at a party and there was a tray of cheese sitting there and I had had drinks, then I might have a bite,” said Silverstone.
Although she’s author of a cookbook of her favorite vegan recipes, The Kind Diet, the actress doesn’t feel too guilty about these little indulgences in her otherwise strict vegan diet. “It’s human. It’s a really good reminder that sometimes you need to have what you remember is this good thing,” Alicia says. “Because then you have it, and you’re like, ‘Actually that wasn’t better than the recipes in my book.”
Most importantly, a cheese cube from time to time doesn’t throw her off her healthy eating. Alicia says being a vegan has helped her stay fit and in good health. “I haven’t been to a doctor in 13 years,” she said. “I don’t have to worry about calories, I don’t have to worry about how I look because I know that what I do makes me look my best.”
