Annette Larkins is a 71-year-old raw foodist from Miami, Florida whose physical appearance makes her look 30 years her junior.
Looking more like her 80-year-old husband’s granddaughter and either of her children’s older sister, Annette credits her meatless diet of more than 40 years for her radiant youthfulness and her physical vitality. She doesn’t heat any of her food, preferring to eat all of it raw by making any number of meals out of nuts, beets, greens, or anything else she grows in her home garden in Miami.
Sure, some of you may balk at the idea of passing up your mother’s fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and all the other delicacies that make you yearn for a home-cooked meal, but Annette would be quick to bring up the classic movie “Soul Food” and remind you of something you may not have ever considered: “You know what killed ‘Big Mama,’ don’t you? Soul food.”
Larkins credits the plants, nuts, and seeds she’s been living on for the past 27 years not only for her radiant, taut skin and foxy physique but also for the pristine bill of health she has enjoyed despite her chronic-disease-ridden family tree.
The raw vegan diet consists of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, and seeds that have not been brought to a temperature above 118 degrees. Raw vegans reason that the heating process kills enzymes and drastically reduces food’s nutrient content.
Mrs. Larkins says the secret to her beauty lies in the raw vegan diet, consisting of organic vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts grown in her own garden, she calls the ‘fountain of youth’. The woman doesn’t touch anything that has been cooked. And another strange thing she does is collect rainwater, to keep her garden blossoming, but also to drink. But the resident of Miami-Dade County, Florida, didn’t always have such a healthy lifestyle. In fact, she consumed meat regularly, as her husband used to own a meat factory way back in the 1960s. It was then that she decided to change her eating habits forever. And what a great decision that was. I mean, just look at her!
When she started off, Mrs. Larkins was just looking for a few health benefits and never anticipated that she would look like a 40-year-old at the age of 70. In the 27 years that she has been eating raw, Mrs. Larkins has written two booklets called Journey to Health and also produced a DVD containing all her healthy secrets. Her husband, Mr. Larkins, wishes he had followed her example, because now he looks much, much older and also suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure. He takes prescription medicine every day, but Annette doesn’t even take an aspirin.
I do know a few people who consume a raw diet, myself, but don’t look as young as this woman. Perhaps she’s also got good genes, or there’s something miraculous in that rainwater she drinks?
At 71 years old, everyone would surely like to look like her too, and such a goal is not out of reach, Annette says. She feels the food we put in to our bodies can help us live longer or shorter lives, depending on the choices we make. Annette believes God put her on Earth to help people make better choices, especially Black people.
