The Kind Diet, actress, activist, and committed conservationist Alicia
Silverstone shares the insights that encouraged her to swear off meat
and dairy forever, and outlines the spectacular benefits of adopting a
plant-based diet, from effortless weight loss to clear skin,
off-the-chart energy, and smooth digestion. She explains how meat, fish,
milk, and cheese-the very foods we've been taught to regard as the
cornerstone of good nutrition-are actually the culprits behind
escalating rates of disease and the cause of dire, potentially permanent
damage to our ecology.
Yet going meat- and dairy-free doesn't
mean suffering deprivation; to the contrary, The Kind Diet introduces
irresistibly delicious food that satisfies on every level-it even
includes amazing desserts to keep the most stubborn sweet tooth happy.
Alicia also addresses the nutritional concerns faced by many who are new
to a plant-based diet, and shows how to cover every nutritional base,
from protein to calcium and beyond.
Alicia knows that changing
life-long dietary habits is a process, and that each person progresses
at a different pace. For that reason, The Kind Diet encompasses 3
separate levels, from Flirting to Superhero. Flirts learn to dip a toe
into the vegan pool, reducing their meat-eating and swapping out a few
key foods for plant-based substitutes to see quickly how even small
changes can reap big results. Vegans get to experience the life-altering
effects of forgoing animal-products entirely, while still enjoying many
convenience foods and meat substitutes in addition to the wonderful
grains, vegetables and fruits that form the core of that diet. True
enlightenment comes with the Superhero program, based on the principles
of macrobiotics and built on a foundation of whole grains, vegetables,
and other yummy foods that Alicia describes in detail.
your goal is to drop a few pounds, boost your energy and metabolism, or
simply save the world, Alicia provides the encouragement, the
information, and the tools you need to make the transition to a
plant-based diet deliciously empowering.
Ça dit à peu près tout! La première moitié du livre est consacrée à l'information sur les bienfaits d'une diète végane. Le ton n'est jamais moralisateur et plusieurs fois Alicia nous rappel qu'on peut commencer en douceur, essayer seulement, pas besoin de chambouler toutes nos habitudes sur un coup de tête et frapper un mur ensuite. Si j'ai bien aimer la première partie, les recettes...bof. J'ai déjà vu beaucoup mieux. Emprunter le à la bibliothèque d'abord.
