I’m a healthy, active 75-year-old woman, widowed for the past twenty years. Yesterday I was walking out of the cardiologist’s office after my routine checkup, and he said “why don’t you write a book about how you got this way” — meaning how I got to the numbers on my blood tests, the amount of exercise I do, and the ability to live a plant-based life over a long period of time.
I wasn’t sure I had the patience to write a book, but I damn well know how to blog, as I’ve been doing it since 1999, so here I go. Like aging, the blog will be a journey. Come with me, especially if you’re younger, because although you can make yourself healthier at any age, it’s best to start young.
