Batgirl/Clueless star Alicia Silverstone spoke to Page Six about her vegan cookbook, her mother’s famous granola recipe, and where to find plant-based restaurants in New York City. But the REAL takeaway from the interview was the surprising way she keeps her son healthy: By NOT giving him medicine. Of any kind. Ever.
“He’s never had to take medicine in his life,” she told Page Six of her 7-year-old son, Bear, on Thursday. “He can get sniffles and a runny nose but he’s not down, he still goes to school. Two times in his life has he been like ‘Mommy I don’t feel good,’ and it was only for a few hours and he was back running around.”
Whatever works, I suppose, although time will tell if “no medicine” is a sustainable health option. (Photo: Avalon Red)

On the road to Hana. The feeling I have being with Bear on our adventure is so giddy…divine…so free and I feel so lucky to have carved out this time for us to just be. And being his mom, caring for him, is so sweet and lovely. Sand, rain, all of it. Beach walks at night, paddle boarding on the Hanalei River. The drive from Hanalei to Ke’e Beach-it has a wild and moody feeling. Anini Beach is so calm and nice to swim in with good vibes from the people hanging there. We stopped at the St. Regis for a quick look-the view there is so epic and beautiful…we met some lovely friends and decided to return the next night for some hot tub in the rain action ..chasing kids and hopping back and forth between tub and pools. The oceanside path that runs along the Coconut Coast. So pretty. All with my little man Bear. When he is tired at bedtime he is so insanely cute and has so many stories, thoughts and ideas. I want to savor these nights. I’m a naughty mommy for staying up late cozy in bed chatting and storying with him.
