Eating for Longevity

What is a healthy diet? What do folks eat around the world— you know, the men and women living into the three digits?

Well, it all depends who you ask. In Japan, they’re eating seaweed and green tea, in Sardinia, lots of milk and cheese. In Greece, it’s beans, lentils, greens and honey along with fish. Those living longest in Meso-America eat the Native American diet of the “three sisters”—squash, beans and corn. Those following a more Biblical diet often eat grains, nuts, fruits and vegetables, plus fish. Maybe a smidgen of meat on a special occasion.

Personally, that sounds all over the charts. Could it be that their bodies are accustomed to whatever is native to… their setting… or their mindset? Are they simply eating what’s the healthiest diet according to their culture’s knowledge?

If so, what might the best all-American diet be? A quarter pounder cheeseburger, hold the cheese? A chili-dog, minus the chili? Hard to say….

How about we all do our best and eat mindfully for the long haul? Get rid of the processed stuff and the junky stuff, eat naturally and in moderation and wash it all down with some clear, clean water? While jogging a couple of miles each day….

Sounds like a plan. Are you in?
