The Kind Diet
Alicia Silverstone's guide to becoming a vegan and loving it.
The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet is a book that highlights the benefits and provides directions on leading a vegan lifestyle. The Kind Diet is written by Alicia Silverstone, who is a noted actress, animal lover and vocal vegan. Silverstone uses The Kind Diet as a way to show that eating a plant-based diet can not only help your body, but help animals and the planet we live on.
Throughout the book, many benefits of switching to a plant-based vegan diet are revealed. Those benefits can include clearer skin, weight loss, higher energy levels and smoother digestive function. Alicia Silverstone also tells her story within the book, and shares what made her adopt a vegan lifestyle. Some of the most important things covered in The Kind Diet are the great foods that you can indulge in while on a plant-based diet. Contrary to popular belief, eliminating meat and all animal products from your diet doesn’t mean you have to spend the rest of your life eating grass and herbs. The Kind Diet offers some wonderful recipes to keep you satisfied, and even offers desserts to indulge your sweet tooth. The Kind Diet includes nearly 100 healthy recipes that will help you add a little flair to your plant-based diet.
The Kind Diet is broken into three different levels so that you can progress at a pace that works for you. The three levels are flirts, vegans and superheroes. At the flirt level, you slowly begin replacing some meats with plant-based foods and start to see immediate benefits. At the vegan level, you are completely off all animal products, but still use meat substitutes along with grains, fruits and vegetables. The final superhero stage is built on the foundation of whole grains and vegetables.
Silverstone has also lent her vegan passion to The 21-Day Vegan Kickstart , a three-week challenge that introduces you to experiencing a lifestyle without any animal products.
