Alicia is an American stage and screen actor most noted for her roles in Batman and Robyn (1997) and 1995’s hit Clueless.
Alicia was a passionate animal rights advocate from an early age, and this informed her decision to become vegan, as she told NJ.com:
“I couldn’t reconcile being an advocate for animals and at the same time eating them — it made no sense. But I quickly realised that there were also incredible health benefits and started to educate myself about the amazing health potential of a plant-based diet,” she says. “Not long after adopting this way of eating, I ditched my inhaler, stopped getting allergy shots, my body slimmed down, my moods balanced, my acne disappeared and I was literally glowing from the inside out.”
An animal lover and long-time activist with PETA, she told them:
“I feel great, and I look better now than I did 11 years ago. Being vegan truly is the secret to my life’s joy and peace. I feel physically and spiritually better than I could have ever imagined knowing that I am doing everything I can to reduce animal suffering with simple lifestyle choices like being vegan.”
Alicia’s new book, ‘The Kind Mama: A Simple Guide to Supercharged Fertility, a Radiant Pregnancy, a Sweeter Birth, and a Healthier, More Beautiful Beginning‘ addresses the sometimes contentious issue of raising a child vegan from birth.
