Alicia Silverstone Credits Seven Year Old Son’s Good Health To Vegan Diet!

Alicia Silverstone Credits Seven Year Old Son’s Good Health To Vegan Diet!

Hollywood actress Alicia Silverstone says her seven year old son Bear has never gotten sick or needed medication and she thinks it’s because of his healthy vegan lifestyle.

“He’s never had to take medicine in his life,” Silverstone told Page Six recently. “He can get sniffles and a runny nose but he’s not down, he still goes to school. Two times in his life has he been like, ‘Mommy I don’t feel good,’ and it was only for a few hours and he was back running around.”

The Clueless actress has been a strict vegan for over 20 years and says it’s changed her whole life. The 42-year-old went vegan when she was 21 years old and has been a strong supporter and activist for veganism ever since.

On the road to Hana. The feeling I have being with Bear on our adventure is so giddy…divine…so free and I feel so lucky to have carved out this time for us to just be. And being his mom, caring for him, is so sweet and lovely. Sand, rain, all of it. Beach walks at night, paddle boarding on the Hanalei River. The drive from Hanalei to Ke’e Beach-it has a wild and moody feeling. Anini Beach is so calm and nice to swim in with good vibes from the people hanging there. We stopped at the St. Regis for a quick look-the view there is so epic and beautiful…we met some lovely friends and decided to return the next night for some hot tub in the rain action ..chasing kids and hopping back and forth between tub and pools. The oceanside path that runs along the Coconut Coast. So pretty. All with my little man Bear. When he is tired at bedtime he is so insanely cute and has so many stories, thoughts and ideas. I want to savor these nights. I’m a naughty mommy for staying up late cozy in bed chatting and storying with him.

While it may sound like young Bear follows a very strict lifestyle, his mum says he doesn’t miss out on treats that other kids get.

“I’m really open to Bear being a little bit flexible out in the world. When he is with other kids who are eating regular pizza — if there’s no vegan pizza, I want him to have the pizza,” she said. “I know other vegans might not agree with that or think it’s acceptable, but I don’t care. I just try to always make sure that at some point in the day he gets some brown rice in him, some greens, and some beans. And if he does that, I feel good. You do the best you can.”

“I hope most that he sees that Mommy’s passionate about life, and maybe that will inspire him to find his passion in life and live it to the fullest,” she added.

Our big 1st grader! 💕😊

Alicia’s love for veganism has seen her write two books-  a cookbook called “The Kind Diet,” and lifestyle book “The Kind Mama.” She says “The Kind Diet” features her mum’s granola recipe which she loves. The actress even makes a batch and takes it to the house of her ex-husband Christopher Jarecki.

“I can’t keep it in the house. I let Christopher have it at his house. I’ll make it and then give it to him because if it’s in the house, I can’t stop eating it.”

Alicia and Christopher divorced in May after nearly 13 years of marriage. However they continue to amicably co-parent their seven year old son.
