Alicia Silverstone Reveals What Lifestyle Change Made Her Love Herself in New Passion Project

Alicia Silverstone revealed through her newest passion project that even though her journey to self-love was difficult, she credits going vegan to be an enormous factor in loving herself.

On March 10, during the first full-length episode of her new podcast The Real Heal, Silverstone sat down with licensed clinical social worker Mary Waldon to talk about a plethora of subjects — including her journey to self-love.

She said, “My life changed a lot. I had a lot of trauma and a lot of difficulties and a complex upbringing. All of those things left me with — well, whatever you want to call it — I had very little self-worth, I would say, and very little self-love. And so, here I was, this person out in the world and in the public but with very little foundation.”

Silverstone also opened up that she was raised to think that any self-work was considered “selfish” — but then she found veganism. “I loved animals so much that I couldn’t face eating them. When I made this choice, my health changed and now things started to get so much healthier inside of me that I was able to hear my intuition.”
