Guess how old this lady is? You’ll have to see it to believe it!! Annette Larkins knows the secret to ageless beauty! She was 70 years ago when this interview took place in 2012. Annette enjoy a Raw Vegan diet and believes fresh fruits, vegetables and unprocessed food is her Elixir of Youth.

Annette Larkins shows off her garden in her Miami-Dade County backyard. It’s full of fruits and vegetables. Every corner of her garden has something that is edible. She also collects rainwater to drink and water her plants.

Annette says the food in her garden is her ‘Fountain of Youth.’

“I am very vibrant, I have lots of energy, as I told you before, I am up no later than 5:30 am in the morning as a rule, and I am ready to go,” she said.

Annette says she does not eat animal products– her food is unprocessed and uncooked. “My diet consists of fruits, nuts, vegetables and seeds. I do a lot of sprouting of seeds and as you can see from my garden and of course these are the raw foods that I eat.”

Annette also juices fruits and veggies. You name it, she can juice it. Grapefruits, pineapples, even spinach. But not everyone in the Larkins family eats and drinks this way.

Raw Vegan Woman and her happy husband

Amos is Annette’s husband for more than 50 years. He says people even wonder if Annette is his wife. “They will ask me ‘what am I doing with a young girl? or they will say ‘you’ve got your granddaughter with you,’ things like that.”

Annette says because friends and strangers kept asking her questions about her health and youthful appearance, she decided to publish two Journey To Health booklets, and she produced a DVD 12 years ago.

“The Discovery Channel, they took sections of the booklet and translated them into Spanish which is, by the way, my second language.”

Her husband says she is vibrant person. “She is an amazing person, she does everything. I mean she builds computers, makes all of her own clothes, grows her own food, speak three languages, it’s amazing.”

In 2014, Annette joined two other raw foodists, Mimi Kirk and Linda Wood-Hoyte on Steve Harvey’s famous talk show to talk about their Vegan lifestyle and how to look at least 20 years younger than their actual age.
