Alicia Silverstone, the Vegan

I don’t know about you, but the last I remember of Alicia Silverstone is seeing her in the movie Clueless.

Recently, however, I came across her website The Kind Life, which goes along with her book The Kind Diet. I’m not a big fan of celebrities promoting a particular diet because I’m not always convinced their living the lifestyle. I came across a video of her on FORA.tv. I wish I could embed the video here but I don’t see that as an option on the website.

The video is of Ms. Silverstone speaking at a bookstore to promote The Kind Diet. I was struck not only by how genuine she seems (and how grownup!) but how truly passionate she is about her chosen vegan lifestyle. And I like the fact that as she spoke, and apparently as presented in her book, she was very aware that not everyone thinks and feels the same way she does about political and environmental issues, or even lifestyle and health issues.

I found her talk inspiring in that it encouraged me to continue my journey to a healthier life – however I define that – by recognizing that it is a process and not something I need to be ready to change 100% tomorrow. Check it out.
