I've long been a fan of Alicia Silverstone, Clueless being my favourite film as a child. More recently I've been admiring her lifestyle choices and how she uses her status to encourage the world to become more aware of how we treat planet Earth and it's inhabitants. She is a dedicated animal rights and enviromental activist and her website the kind life is a guide on how to live life to the fullest while "taking care of Mama Earth" She writes on everything from eco-friendly fashion, to delicious healthy recipes.
I'm an animal lover yet I occasionally eat meat. This has never quite sat right with me either and I found it interesting to read that Alicia herself similarly struggled with this, eventually becoming vegan in 1998. I've dabbled in vegetarianism but always went back to eating meat.
I don't think I could ever become fully vegan but I'm certainly interested how I can adapt my lifestyle to be more in line with this way of living. At the very least I always strive to be aware of where the food I consume comes from.
I believe your body will thank you for it!
