Lauren Hutton is a stellar example of ageing elegantly and living a full and healthy life. We love her interview with energytimes and have posted a small portion below where she talks about the importance of eating well and forming good habits for life. It’s an inspiring read.
“When I grew up, we were very strict about not allowing candy. Fast food wasn’t a big thing. I think it was from being from Charleston, where everybody had chickens in their yard. I don’t eat too much meat. I eat more vegetables and salads and fruit and beans. I love beans. I quite often don’t have lunch, but when I do, like today I’m meeting a girlfriend, I’ll get a quinoa rice bowl. It’s delicious because they have all different cucumbers and all fresh vegetables, and it’s all different textures and crunchy food. Quite often, it’s just a bunch of beans that I’ve done something to. Limas or some particular bean I was happy with and I make some sort of bean mix. I’m learning how to cook so I’m doing different things with that. I’ll make a bean mix and a salad, and that’s it. I’ll have two things. If I snack I’ll grab a pear or another fruit. I finally made that a habit.
I’m also taking a multiple vitamin and looking at vitamin A, magnesium, calcium and zinc. I’m going to start taking the fish oil omega-3s. I’d like to be around to watch how interesting this world is getting, and I think it’s important for elders to be elder. The societies that I looked up to, the elders weren’t just there for laughs. Some of them were really spectacular people, and I’d like to be a useful elder, a real elder.”
