The New Potato sat down with actress, activist and vegan mom Alicia Silverstone in LA. Over bites at vegan Mexican restaurant Gracias Madre, the Clueless star and Chalkboard guest editor reveals her ideal food day ("I love going to the Farmer's Market"), her emphasis on thoroughly chewing her food ("Seriously, how many of us chew?!") and a beauty mainstay that she hasn't changed since her Cher Horowitz days ("My long hair"). We also learn where Silverstone can be found chowing down in LA: Planet Raw in SaMo, Shima in Venice, Real Food Daily in WeHo, Crossroads on Melrose, Elf in Silver Lake, M.A.K.E. in SaMo, Inaka on La Brea and Café Gratitude on Larchmont.
