WOW! Well I really didn't know whether to believe this one when I first saw it, but just wow!!
When Annette Larkins goes out with her husband of 54 years, people assume she is his daughter.
The image of health, vitality and youth with a petite size four frame and a line-free face, Mrs Larkins is in fact 70 years old.
The resident of Miami-Dade County, Florida, attributes her youthful looks to her raw vegan diet and grows almost everything she eats in the garden she
refers to as her 'fountain of youth'.
27 years ago she went one step further by turning vegan and now everything she eats is raw. Nothing cooked or processed every passes her lips.
Recognising how positively she could influence others, the formidable 70-year-old has already written two booklets titled: Journey to Health and
produced a DVD about her nutritional regime.
'I am very vibrant, I have lots of energy, as I told you before, I am up no later than 5:30 in the morning as a rule, and I am ready to go' she told
Her husband agreed, gushing: 'She's an amazing person though. Oh man, I mean really. She does everything- build computers, make all her own clothes,
grow her own food, speaks three languages. It's amazing.'
What a lovely and positive story of how if you treat your body well, your body will treat you well.
This woman is amazing, what an inspiration!
