‘I’ve not only been surviving, I’ve been thriving – with cancer,’ she agrees.
But as the self-ascribed ‘poster girl for cancer’, Kris is a powerful advert for her own alternative approach – she is glowing and vital and looks at least a decade younger than her 41 years.But she did have the power to radically improve her overall health, which might just work wonders.Next Valentine’s Day, it will be ten years since Kris first heard the words, ‘You have cancer.’ She is not cancer-free; her tumours remain, and she has annual scans to monitor their growth, or otherwise.‘And inflammation is the root cause of chronic disease,’ she asserts, patting Lola, her black and brown rescue dog, the first of many rescue pets she has plans to offer a home to.By contrast, she argues, a highly alkaline, plant-based diet can alleviate, combat and actively prevent a multitude of health problems, including not just cancer but also autism, arthritis, depression and diabetes.Kris Carr is impressively frank about her former life, which she calls BC: Before Cancer.
As an ambitious young actress living out a long-held dream – with the lead in an Arthur Miller play on Broadway directed by the playwright himself, and a role in a touring production of Chicago – she paid little attention to her health.The cooking demonstration and meet-the-author event to promote the book – her fourth in the US, but the first to be published in the UK – is packed to the rafters with hundreds of polished post-work New Yorkers, keen to ask Kris questions about whether vegan diets are suitable while training for a marathon, and what meat-free, plant-friendly treats to cook for ‘nonbelievers’ this Christmas.In tight black jeans and spike-heeled boots, with her blonde hair in big, bouncy waves, Kris holds court with humour, warmth and inspiring enthusiasm.And the samples of dishes being handed around, and hungrily devoured – a crunchy kale salad, crostini with artichoke pesto and mushrooms, and a creamy, festive smoothie called For the Love of Nog – would satisfy even the most finicky gourmand.Kris grew up several hours north, in the small town of Pawling in upstate New York, where she was raised by her mother and her grandmother, a cook who ran a local French bistro, the Village Gourmet.‘While she was a very talented chef and used lots of fresh produce in her cooking, we still ate a lot of animal products,’ Kris tells me when we meet a few days later at her 16-acre farm in Woodstock, NY, a town suitably well-disposed to her sunny sort of revolution.
