If you had all the resources readily available to you to be healthy whilst eating tasty food and all the while reduce your ecological footprint – without consuming animals – why wouldn't you?

Because a vegetarian diet’s health benefits are vastly overstated, and working out heavily on a purely plant-based diet is generally a bad idea. Also, when I eat mostly plants, my energy flags and my health suffers.
Not everyone is physiologically the same. Also, I like meat and won’t give it up unless it becomes illegal to eat. And even then, I probably still won’t.
