If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Except if it’s the promises behind Alicia Silverstone’s cookbook and lifestyle manual The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight and Saving the Planet. As a lot of our team here at My Yoga Online can attest, a plant-based diet really is a good way to boost energy, trim down, and renew your zest for life—plus help save the planet by reducing the harmful effects the livestock industry has on the environment.
Jam-packed with facts, insight, and inspiration, Silverstone’s three-part book outlines Kind versus Nasty; Living the Kind Life; and The Recipes. Kind versus Nasty presents the facts on meat, dairy, white sugar and processed food and a list of kind foods including whole grains and new proteins. Living the Kind Life is a rundown on flirting with a plant-based diet, fully adopting a plant-based diet, stocking your kitchen, staying on track while travelling, getting fit inside and out, and the power of choice. The Recipes is full of drool-worthy, animal-friendly takes on classic dishes such as burritos, casseroles, dips, and even the traditional English breakfast—plus creative and new dishes.
The lifestyle encouraged in The Kind Diet isn’t as daunting as it might sound. The book is a #1 New York Times Bestseller and the site www.thekindlife.com has gained a huge following. It’s not hard to see why Silverstone’s fan base continues to grow. Recently featured in the April issue of VOGUE magazine, Silverstone stuck to her mantra. Despite the publication’s not so environmentally friendly focus, she reported that she shops consignment and prefers environmentally sound fabrics. And her motive behind creating her book and site, as outlined in the intro, is nothing short of inspiring: “I believe that following the Kind Diet can lead to world peace.”
