My Appearance on Dr. Oz

Last week I had an appearance on the Dr. Oz show and wanted to share it with you all! We talked about my book The Kind Mama and answered some questions from the audience.

Check out the clip here:

    Hi Alicia! I love following the Kind Life and can’t wait to read the Kind Mama. I have been vegetarian for 12 years and vegan for almost a year now, and I still struggle with my cystic acne. Were there certain foods you avoided or certain things that you found helped with this? I don’t want to turn to harsh medication, but it has become so frustrating. Thank you for all of your kind words and inspiration!

    Fabulous Alicia. It is so great that you are getting this valuable information out to the mainstream. I loved how naturally you share how you connected the dots at 21 with loving and kissing your dog, while cutting up other animals to eat. Wow, that was a big connection. You did a GREAT job taking questions from the audience and showing what you feed Bear, and sharing that you were able to get off of inhalers for asthma and acne cleared up. All great information in a short amount of time. You hit it!! It is so inspiring to see you share this wonderful vegan lifestyle. You are making a difference in the world. I know we can each make a difference by connecting the dots and sharing our stories and being kind in the process. People around us will be curious, uncomfortable, etc, but that is their issue as they hear of why we choose not to consume animals. You make it easier for us to stand up and be proud of the vegan lifestyle that is a great lifestyle to subscribe to. People can not deny that we feel good, more trim, happier, etc. Thank you for what you do. -Rhonda

    Ah, you looked beautiful! Well-done, sweetie! I just love seeing your interviews like this one because you always seem to approach everything with joy and a sense of fun…it’s contagious! I just read THE KIND MAMA and I’m not even a vegan nor a mama or planning to be one. And I loved it, just as I loved THE KIND LIFE. Despite being VERY careful with my vegan diet — three times! — my body just does not seem to want to be healthy that way, and I was actually brokenhearted to start adding animal products back into my diet. (I did that, lost tons of weight, and felt better physically. Go figure.) However, my mind and heart have wanted to be vegetarian/vegan since I was about 11, so I’m considering giving it one more shot! I love animals and I have several health issues, so why not, right? I hope to consult a vegan nutritionist so that I have better luck this time around, and of course I’ll check in here and make yummies from your books! Cheers!

      hi there
      thank u for sharing all of this
      i wonder what you eat on a daily basis? when not vegan and when vegan
      send me your average day
      i can try and help to see where things are missing
      and maybe you can be more specific about what doesn’t work when u are vegan
      also consider finding a macro councilor
      they are sooooo great!
      so happy to hear from u

        Alicia, I have a heaviness in my heart knowing the suffering of animals. I am also starting to feel disconnected from my friends who are not vegan and don’t care. I am fairly new to veganism. Is this normal?

  • Rebecca Ratliff

    Wonderful appearance, Alicia! Thank you for being such a beautiful, well-informed face for veganism.

  • veganamericanprincess

    Just watched your clip on Dr. Oz, Alicia. I can’t believe I missed it when it was aired. You did an amazing job and you’re such a wonderful advocate for veganism and a more natural lifestyle. Actually, you never cease to amaze me with your authenticity and sweet disposition! If there were more people like you on the planet, we’d have world peace. Thank you for doing what you do! xoxo
