Actress Alicia Silverstone has written a new parenting book called The Kind Mama, in which she advocates for happiness during pregnancy and postpartum through a vegan diet and lifestyle.
“I knew there was another way and it would be a more enjoyable, lovely way,” she told the Associated Press in a recent interview. “So I started talking to doctors and medical experts, doing tons of research and found that there was so much support for this way. I wanted to make a guide for women so they could have that experience that they deserved to have.”
The Rodale publication is the second book from the actress and author. Her first book, The Kind Diet, a vegetarian lifestyle guide, was a New York Times bestseller. She is also working on another book for Rodale called The Kind Diet Cookbook, which will include healthy recipes. That title is slated for publication later this year.
Rodale Books acquired the world rights to Silverstone’s latest two titles in 2012 in a deal with Jennifer Rudolph Walsh, EVP and Co-Head of William Morris Endeavor Worldwide Literary Department.
