silverstoneIt’s been an Alicia Silverstone kind of day.

First we had her discussing her naked gardening tendencies this morning — and now we have a few more quotes from her interview in the September issue of Health magazine. The 32-year-old actress chats up her vegan lifestyle, the possibility of kids (next year?), and why a plant-based diet will make you feel more “juicy”.  Some highlights:

On her new book “The Kind Diet”, and how choosing the right foods can help you feel more sensuous:

“You can hear your needs and desires more clearly. You’re just more juicy—there’s just this lightness that happens. …Once you’re informed, then you can be really gentle and kind to yourself, but giving yourself all the fights life has to offer – like mental clarity and vitality – all while making the planet better”

On some gardening advice for Michelle Obama:

“Compost, for sure. We have a badass compost. I bought a baby bag of worms eight years ago and put it in the compost, and now there are bazillions of them. And it’s like the dirt is so delicious, you could eat it!”

On her vegan diet being a lifestyle:

“It’s weird to be 32 now and feel and look younger… Right after I first made the switch to a plant-based diet, people were literally telling me, ‘What have you done? You’re sparkling.’”

    So true. I’m almost 32 and feeling juicy & sparkly since going vegan too!

  • Whoever…

    “It’s weird to be 32 now and feel and look younger… Right after I first made the switch to a plant-based diet, people were literally telling me, ‘What have you done? You’re sparkling.”

    I’m glad there are more people who have noticed this fact.

    I’ve mentioned it before and I’ll ‘say’ it again – veg*ans do look younger and veg*an women (in particular) have this kind of glow that non-veg*an women just don’t have it!

    Veg*an women rock!! Yeah!!

    “Veg*an women simply sparkle!”

    Yes. You can also ‘drop’ 10lbs in as little as 10 ten days if you live in a country with no welfare and no one gives a fuck.

    Alicia Silverstone is so freaking adorable…and she’s right. I’ve been vegan for 5 years and people consistently think I’m about 5 years younger than I actually am. (I like to think they aren’t just being nice!)

    She looks so pretty on the cover. She looks like she’s still in her twenties!
    I wish she would of said what people said to her after she told them she’s vegan after they ask her “What have you done? Your sparkling!” I’m really curious how many people said something negative and how many said something positive.

    She does looks amazingly healthy with a beautiful glow. I’m glad her diet has inspired her to live a wonderful life.

    Well – I enjoy rare steak, raw cheese & pate & ‘sparkle’ & folks think I’m ten years younger than reality. But, truly – is that food or genes?

    Alicia is beautiful & I respect her opinions. But, I do think she looks frail as a lot of folks I know who are vegan and/or raw. One guy came into a store I work in raving about a raw cookbook, etc. – but, the poor guy was skin & bones…it was painful to see.

    Factory farming, GMO foods, pesticides/herbicides need to be banned…that simple.

    I’m nearly 50, feel younger than 32 and very juicy despite the new addiction to vegan creme eggs x

  • herbert

    She is beautiful. Inside and out.

    Sometimes people mistake “skinny” for “unhealthy” or “frail” Those people are usually “FAT” and “Jealous”
