The oldest living woman’s secret to long life

Most people say that the key to living a long life is to be incredibly healthy, yet this isn’t exactly the case for the oldest woman alive.

If you’re wondering, her name is Emma Morano from Italy, and she’s 117 years old. What makes her the oldest woman alive and stand out from the crowd is that every day she eats two eggs only with the occasional cookie.

Her reason behind eating two eggs a day is because as stated in an article, “a doctor advised her that it would be good for her health when she was diagnosed with anemia at the age of 20.”

 

What are the benefits of eating eggs?
One of the main benefits would be that they’re packed with protein. Regardless of age and health, we all need protein to help us get through each day. Another benefit of eating eggs would be that they help with our eye health. Our eyes will only become stronger with each egg that we consume and our eyes are pretty important.

How can eggs be prepared?
Some of the most popular ways to prepare eggs would be to scramble them, turn them into an omelette, boil, poach, or to leave them be as the raw eggs that they are. One of the things that all five of those methods have in common is that they’re some of the best and simplest ways to cook an egg.

If you’re flat out tired of eating eggs in any of the ways mentioned — that’s fine. Want to know why? Because there are other ways to prepare eggs too!

 

Would I be able to eat only two eggs a day?

The answer to that would be no. Many of us are very busy, and we need huge amounts of energy – in the form of food – to get us through the day.
