The Green Quote: Laura Linney Credits Alicia Silverstone For Healthier Lifestyle
“I love Alicia – she had an enormous influence on me. I burst with pride over her book [The Kind Diet]. And she said, ‘You don’t have to be one thing or the other, just figure out what’s best for you.’ I had been so rigid in my thinking about if I was going to be a vegetarian, if I was going to be a vegan. I don’t have to put that pressure on myself. I”m just trying to learn what the best diet is for me.
“I certainly feel better now that I’m barely eating meat. I don’t feel as heavy, my digestion is better, my skin is better – even my hair is better! And I feel healthier when I don’t eat dairy, but that’s really hard for me – I love cheese. But food is not just nutritional, it’s mental, so you know, if I need a little chocolate every once in a while, I need a little chocolate.”
