Alicia Silverstone has made the jump from the big screen to the kitchen. The actress who delighted as Batgirl, won a Golden Globe nomination for TV’s “Miss Match,” ruled as Cher in the iconic 1995 Clueless, and has three new movies in the works, now has a second career as a New York Times best-selling cookbook author for The Kind Diet, a guide to eating and living vegan.
I wanted people to have an opportunity to really be kind to themselves—once and for all, have everything they ever dreamed of, like the strongest immune system, the most beautiful skin, increased energy so they are just so vital, and reduced risk of illness—from the really scary ones like cancer, heart disease, diabetes and arthritis to allergies and asthma. The great news is that in that process you are also being kind to the planet and also kind to other creatures and also kind to children and people of the world who have no food. So it really just sums up what is possible through our food choices.
The actress and author sat down with Gourmet Live to talk about her cooking-crazy friends, her penchant for peanut butter cups and how the whole world’s going a little veggie.
