Since becoming vegan, Alicia says she's never felt deprived—but will occasionally slip up on cheese. "Usually it's after a glass of wine," she jokes. "Then what happens is I start to get gassy. My skin starts to break out. I start to look a little more chunky the next day. I don't feel well."

Alicia's experiences inspired her to create a vegan cookbook called The Kind Diet. "The kindness is about being truly kind to yourself first," she says. "Letting yourself have the best health and look your best and feel your most vital."
