People follow a vegan diet for so many reasons, but the numerous benefits are measurable physically, emotionally and karmically. For those not ready to go whole hog (so to speak) the value of at least "leaning into" a more plant-based diet should not be underestimated.
Personally, though the stabilization of chronic illness is my main motivator, some days are more creative and energetic than others. On the days my motivation wanes, vanity steps in and I'm inspired anew. No other way of life affords the chance to eat as much delicious food, as often as one wants, with no detrimental effect to health or dress size. In the grand scheme of things, 60 isn't very far off. Miss Brinkley and other beautiful vegans and "almost vegans" stand as inspiration for what's to come.
