Product description

After spending more than 20 weeks on the "New York Times" bestseller list, Alicia Silverstone's inspiring guide to eating a plant-based diet has introduced hundreds of thousands of readers to a brand new relationship with food and health. Now available as a paperback and printed on 100 per cent recycled paper with earth friendly soy ink, "The Kind Diet" continues to inspire readers to diminish the role of 'nasty' foods like meat and dairy in their diets in favour of superhero foods that support good health and take a much gentler toll on our natural resources and environment. Sharing the insights that encouraged her to become a vegan and outlining the incredible physical benefits of adopting a plant-based diet, Alicia presents a user-friendly 3-level programme to accommodate everyone - those who just want to 'flirt' with the wide range of readily available meat and dairy substitutes and up their consumption of grains and vegetables, those who are ready to adopt a vegan lifestyle, and those who wish to experience full 'superhero' status with a modified macrobiotic regimen that provides maximum weight loss and health benefits. Striking full-colour photographs and over 100 of Alicia's favourite recipes for vegans and superheroes round out this stunning introduction to the animal-free diet, Equal parts memoir, health guide, and keepsake cookbook, "The Kind Diet" is sure to make every reader's transition to a plant-based diet attainable, empowering, and delicious.

Customer reviews

By Louise Cowpertwait 23 Sep 2012 4

The strength of this book is the explanation of the benefits of a vegan diet and inspiration to lead a healthy vegan lifestyle. The recipes have quite a macrobiotic slant so some of the ingredients are unusual and would only be available in health food stores. There were quite a few good ones though! Highly recommend for an addition to a vegan book collection or someone interested in learning about vegan values.

Lovely book with photos of Alicia cooking, loved how it was written and worded - I was glued and couldn't put it down - ended up reading the whole book in one sitting!!
