The Kind Diet

I often watch Oprah and say, “Wow that just changed my life.” (I’m aware of how cheesy that just sounded.)  Then I go about my usual day, forgetting the fleeting impact that whatever subject I just watched had on me. Yesterday’s show was about learning where food comes from and featured Clueless actress Alicia Silverstone.  She talked about her new book “The Kind Diet,” and how she’s adopted a hard-core vegan lifestyle. Let’s just say she won me over when she talked about her effortless poops that happen twice and sometimes three times a day! She also spoke about how her plant-based diet has given her clear skin and off-the-chart energy which sounds great in addition to the fact that the diet is kind to animals. I know that chances are I won’t adopt the vegan lifestyle but I plan to get her book to at least “flirt,” as she calls it, with the idea and also try out some of her recipes that looked delish on Oprah. Right now I’m about 75% vegetarian but not sure I could ever say adios to cheese, my weakness. I’ve never met a smelly, gooey, shaved or crumbled type I didn’t like. But in the least, maybe I’ll learn a thing or two about eating more sustainably and healthfully.

    I liked that episode – I love Michael Pollan (his books are fantastic) and have been thinking about going to see “Food Inc.” (I saw earthilings, and it was really hard to watch…. I don’t know if I could watch something like that again).

    I’m a cheese lover too…. I like it any and every way – it turns every meal it graces into a little plate of sunshine.
