The Kind Diet is a fabulous introduction to the vegan lifestyle. Not only are Alicia Silverstone's vegan recipes delectable, but she teaches readers, with honesty and warmth, how to attain a new, healthier body. All without harming the planet — and, in many cases, helping it.
Recommended by Juniper Winters, Powells.com

The Kind Diet is a great start for anyone looking to cook vegan or even just learn about a vegan lifestyle. Alicia Silverstone delivers such a well-rounded and simple guide to cooking and living a vegan lifestyle that you will wonder why you didn't go vegan sooner. She eases you into the vegan way of life by giving you great tips, inspiring stories, and a wealth of information so you can make well-informed choices that leave you feeling great instead of feeling hungry all the time. Being vegan isn't just about losing weight and feeling great (though those are great benefits). It's also about being kinder to our bodies, our environment, and the animals that occupy this planet with us, and Alicia gets this message across in a most delightful and well-informed way. The Kind Diet is a great addition to any cookbook collection, whether you are vegan or not.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Kind Diet, actress, activist, and committed conservationist Alicia Silverstone shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin, off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion. She explains how meat, fish, milk, and cheese — the very foods we've been taught to regard as the cornerstone of good nutrition — are actually the culprits behind escalating rates of disease and the cause of dire, potentially permanent damage to our ecology.

Yet going meat — and dairy — free doesn't mean suffering deprivation; to the contrary, The Kind Diet introduces irresistibly delicious food that satisfies on every level — it even includes amazing desserts to keep the most stubborn sweet tooth happy. Alicia also addresses the nutritional concerns faced by many who are new to a plant-based diet, and shows how to cover every nutritional base, from protein to calcium and beyond.

Alicia knows that changing life-long dietary habits is a process, and that each person progresses at a different pace. For that reason, The Kind Diet encompasses 3 separate levels, from Flirting to Superhero. Flirts learn to dip a toe into the vegan pool, reducing their meat-eating and swapping out a few key foods for plant-based substitutes to see quickly how even small changes can reap big results. Vegans get to experience the life-altering effects of forgoing animal-products entirely, while still enjoying many convenience foods and meat substitutes in addition to the wonderful grains, vegetables and fruits that form the core of that diet. True enlightenment comes with the Superhero program, based on the principles of macrobiotics and built on a foundation of whole grains, vegetables, and other yummy foods that Alicia describes in detail.

Whether your goal is to drop a few pounds, boost your energy and metabolism, or simply save the world, Alicia provides the encouragement, the information, and the tools you need to make the transition to a plant-based diet deliciously empowering.

Synopsis:

Best known for her role in Clueless, Silverstone shares how her journey toward a vegan and now macrobiotic diet has left her feeling better than ever. The Kind Diet features nearly 100 easy — and Earth-friendly — recipes. 40 color photographs.

This is a great guide for eliminating animal products in your diet at your own pace. Ms. Silverstone does a great job at explaining the many health and environmental benefits of a meatless diet, and her obvious passion and dedication make this book a real winner. Not to mention the many delicious recipes, including desserts. It's great for those starting out, as well as long-term vegetarians and vegans. I've been a vegetarian for 20 years, and it's helping me finally make the transition to vegan.
