Annette Larkins is 70 years old and looks and feels better than many 40 year olds. She plants her own foods and never eats anything that is processed. Not only does she eat the foods that she has in her garden, but she collects rainwater and drinks that as well. She says that her garden is her Fountain of Youth and thanks to her raw food diet, she looks like she is 40.
Hear her secrets in the video below:
Larkins gets up at 5:30am every single morning and is full of energy when she wakes up. How many of us can say that? In the 1960s Annette’s husband owned a meat shop and that is when she decided to be a vegetarian. She eventually became a raw vegan which means that she does not eat anything from an animal, not even milk or eggs, and all of her food is left unprocessed and uncooked.
Annette’s diet consists of fruit, seeds, nuts, and veggies. She does a lot of sprouting in her garden too. Not everyone in her family eats as she does. He husband says he wishes that he would have started eating raw when she did, which was at the beginning of their marriage. He says that people wonder if Annette is his wife because she looks so much younger than him. He has to take daily prescriptions for high blood pressure and diabetes. Annette does not take any medication, not even aspirin.
Annette put out a DVD 12 years ago and also published two booklets called “Journey to Health” after her friends kept asking her questions about what she does and how she does it. Her husband describes her as a vibrant person who speaks three languages, grows her own food, and makes her own clothes.
