A 54-year-old neurologist by the name of Valter Longo said that he plans to live to 120 by following what he calls the longevity diet. Normally, I would gloss over such claims, however, check out this man’s accolades! Dr. Vongo is also author of the The Longevity Diet (a book published in 2016).
On a recent trip to my local farmers market, I came across an interesting looking piece of produce. It was a vibrant purple color, about the size of an orange and had lush leaves sprouting from the top. If a beet had a baby with a cabbage, to me this is what this plant would have been.

Various credible sources including Harvard Health, states women are about twice as likely as men to develop major depression. It appears our biological or hormonal makeup may be partly to blame.
The tagline of the popular candy Skittles is “Taste the rainbow.” Now it may be more appropriate to say “Taste the titanium dioxide.” And this does not make for good publicity.
To be honest, I was shocked to see them at first because they looked like little green snakes on a plate!
