I was reading an amazing and interesting article on The Huffington Post this morning about the world’s oldest living woman. At 116, Emma Morano of Verbania, Italy recently took the title of the oldest living woman. The even more interesting, and honestly quite shocking fact, is what she has eaten everyday. You could naturally assume that she eats healthy, but would you have guessed that she simply eats eggs and cookies?!?
Yes, COOKIES and EGGS. In her own words exactly “I eat two eggs a day and that’s it,” she said. “I eat cookies.” She attributes the diet to the fact that she no longer has teeth, but she is healthy and doctors have even said when she gets ill, that she recovers quite well, even at her age. Even more interesting, is the fact that the two eggs that she eats everyday are raw. In addition to her diet, the Huffington Post also had this to say: “Other than that, the oldest woman says she’s lived a long life thanks to not being “dominated” by anyone and to staying single since she divorced in her late 30s.”
While the diet itself doesn’t sound super amazing, apart from the cookies, we wish Emma a happy early 117 birthday and can’t wait to hear and see from her again very soon!
