While most centenarians in Blue Zones® areas enjoy meat only on special occasions, all of them eat a plant-based diet packed with a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, and beans. Rich in disease-fighting nutrients, fava, black beans, soy, and lentils are the cornerstone of their diets.
Try their approach to living longer, healthier.
Make meat a condiment vs. the main course, and buy the leanest, finest meat you can afford.
Limit meat portions to the size of a deck of cards.
Make fruits, vegetables, and grains the majority of your meal intake.
Eat a handful of nuts a day for an extra 2-3 years of life.
