The KIND DIET:
A Simple Guide To Losing Weight, Looking Great, Saving Yourself,
The Animals & The Planet
by Alicia Silverstone

A beloved Hollywood fixture, Alicia Silverstone has become one of its most visible and passionate advocates for the environment and its animals. Since declaring herself a vegetarian at the age of eight, she has been on a campaign to eliminate all animal products from her life. At the same time she has, like many people, become concerned about the impact on the environment of raising animals for food. The unexpected and remarkable results of her meat-free, plant-based diet: She has lost weight, gained energy, and seen amazing improvements in her skin. In The Kind Diet, Alicia shares how her journey toward a vegan and now (most of the time) macrobiotic diet has left her feeling better than she ever thought possible.  READ MORE HERE >

The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone
My Favorite Cupcakes

Makes 12

I love cupcakes...is there anyone out there who doesn’t? These are light, springy, and delicious with a decadent fudgy frosting. These are best eaten right after they’re made.


Cupcakes
2/3 cup hemp or soy milk
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup agave nectar
1/3 cup safflower oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
pinch of fine sea salt
 

Fudge Frosting
1/2 cup (4 ounces) Earth Balance butter
1/2 cup agave nectar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup soy milk powder *(see note below)

Directions
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line a 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
 

Combine the milk and vinegar in a medium bowl, and set aside for at least 5 minutes or until it bubbles a little. If it doesn’t bubble, keep stirring the mixture until it does. Add the agave nectar, oil, and vanilla and stir.
 

In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry, mixing until no lumps remain.
 

Pour the batter into the prepared muffin tin, and bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of one cupcake comes out clean and the tops are slightly springy when pressed. Cool the cupcakes in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes, then cool completely on a baking rack before frosting.
 

To make the Fudge Frosting, use a mixer to cream the butter together with the agave nectar in a mixing bowl until very smooth. Add the vanilla extract and about half the cocoa powder, mix on low speed to combine, then add the remaining cocoa powder. Add in the soy milk powder, and beat at medium-high speed until fluffy. If it is runny, refrigerate the frosting until it sets a little.

*NOTE: Soy milk powder is sold in large amounts, so if you have a bunch left, you can add water to make it into soy milk. If you don’t have soy milk powder, the frosting will be fine, just a little runnier.
