AARP Promotes Veganism

Yet another sign of veganism’s increasing acceptance among the general public: the interview with Bill Clinton in the Aug/Sept. issue of AARP The Magazine.  Titled “My Lunch with Bill,” it’s all about his vegan diet, and filled with superlatives.  “I’m struck with a dazzling kaleidoscope of a dozen delicious dishes,” described with obvious delight by author Joe Conason.  “We sit down and with great relish start passing plates back and forth.”  And from Clinton: “I have so much more energy now!  I feel great,” adding later, “I decided to pick the diet that I thought would maximize my chances of long-term survival.”

AARP further supports the article by including vegan recipes at the end, as well as on their website with the caption “Eat Like a President.”  Plus another webpage of Meatless Monday recipes.  Who would have thought, even a few years ago, that this kind of support for veg eating would come relatively soon from major mainstream sources?  Clinton is not totally vegan, but he is about 95% there, and is doing highly effective work to encourage ordinary Americans to eat healthier diets.   All who dream of a vegan world can be grateful to Clinton and to the many media outlets who have featured his diet.
