The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone

Since starting my Vegetarian journey at the start of this year, I have come across many Vegan friendly resources but my favourite has been a book I purchased from Amazon. The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I have been a huge fan of Alicia - as an actress - since her early acting days and even had the opportunity to see her when she came to Australia many years ago promoting Batman & Robin. 

The Kind Diet is described as a simple guide to feeling great, losing weight and saving the planet. I feel that since reading this book I am doing all 3. I feel great, my skin is much clearer and hydrated, even the whites of my eyes are brighter. I have lost 6 kilos already since switching to a Vegetarian diet and I know that with my Kind Life approach I am saving the planet with every meal by not eating animals. It feels great! 

In the book, Alicia discusses the nasty foods and the kind foods... The nasty foods are the ones that are hurting the planet and aren't good for your body, so these are foods that you want to avoid from your diet. The Kind foods are all the yummy delicious foods that your body needs and loves and these are the foods we need to incorporate more into our diet, so live longer and be healthier and live the kind life. 

Nasty Foods:
1. Meat
2. Dairy
3. White Sugar
4. Processed Foods

Kind Foods:
1. Vegetables
2. Whole Grains
3. New Proteins
4. Desserts

If you are looking for a book to assist you with a transition to a Vegetarian or Vegan lifestyle I highly recommend this book; The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone.
