the kind diet alicia silverstone

My little granny bookmark is finished. Actually, this is my second one. I gave the first one to my mom and now I’m working on a third. I went down a hook size since the first and I think I prefer the tighter stitches for this wool.

The book I’m reading is The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone. I just happened to pick it up at the library because it was on display next to the knitting books. I had to give up beef and dairy once before when my daughter had an intolerance. I remember thinking how hard it must be to go vegan because you had to give up even more!

Her book got me thinking, though. Here I am trying to save all of these things from the landfill for a better earth. Then I go out and order a hamburger for dinner. The dairy and beef industry are definitely not nice to our planet! I might have to rethink how I spend my food dollars.

in search of: currently looking for an inexpensive, used version of this book for my home collection.

  1. You might want to try freecycle or amazon has used books sometimes too.

    Did you use linen for the book marker? Great idea … I might have to use it for gifts :)

    I haven’t read that book yet, but I became vegan (vegan-ish because I still eat eggs from our chickens) about a year ago. At first it was an experiment, but it’s turned into much more. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. I’ve read that even if a person ate vegan just one day a week, it would have an enormous impact on our environment.

    Oh my, I’m also reading this book! My husband and I turned vegetarian a few years ago and am thinking about taking the next step. I have been pleasantly surprised at how well the book is put together and am looking forward to trying some of the recipes.
