Alicia Silverstone: Veganism is "such a no-brainer" [VIDEO]
We wrote about Farm Sanctuary‘s Compassionate Meals Program when actress and vegan Harley Quinn Smith was featured with her director father Kevin Smith, enjoying a meal at Doomieâ€™s Home Cookinâ€™. Now, the program has featured vegan actress and cookbook author Alicia Silverstone with her 6-year-old son, Bear.
The duo enjoyed a kale Caesar salad and Impossible Burger sliders at Crossroads, while answering questions on veganism. When asked about the health benefits of the lifestyle, Silverstone stated:
“The amazing thing about it is itâ€™s turned me into an absolute health nut, because you feel so good, you feel so different. So, being able to do something that is good for the earth, good for the animals and good for you all at the same time seems like such a no-brainer. Itâ€™s like the biggest ‘Duh!'”
In the video, Silverstone also provides some vegan meal ideas for kids, and recommends visiting a farm sanctuary to extend the love for dogs and cats to other animals. When Bear was asked what his favorite thing about being vegan was, he responded stating “that you donâ€™t have to eat yucky meat.” You can watch the entire video below:
