Alicia Silverstone has announced that she and husband Christopher Jarecki plan to raise their son, Bear Blu, as a vegan.
Bear was born in May and has already been on a plant-based diet from the beginning! Silverstone says “Bear was grown on vegan food and we’ll continue nourishing him with a healthy diet…He’ll be eating an organic plant-based diet. I intend to take great care of his precious new baby body so I’m committed to giving him nothing but the purest and most healthy food possible. We want to keep his immune system strong so that he’ll be super healthy – which is just one of the many reasons he’ll eat vegan”
Both Alicia and her husband are vegan. Her book The Kind Diet, a cookbook and guide to plant-based eating, has been successful and became a New York Times #1 Bestseller. The book has spun into a website, The Kind Life, full of information and resources for living a cruelty-free, healthy lifestyle.
Silverstone became vegan in 1998 after watching a video about how animals are raised and slaughtered for food in factory farms. She says on Oprah.com, “I just took a look at my dog and said, ‘If I’m not willing to eat you, how can I continue to eat these other creatures that have the same desire to live, are just as funny, just as cute as my dogs?’”
