There are secrets of longevity in the traditional diets of the Abkhazians, Hunzans, and Vilcabambans, cultures recognized as having people thrive into old age. “One secret of longevity is eating lots of vegetables. In other cultures, vegetables are not only eaten at lunch and dinner, but also as a regular part of breakfast. The Abkhazians, for example, may enjoy a nice salad alongside their whole grain corn porridge. Another secret of longevity is minimal processed foods in the diet. If Americans would just clean up their diets and eat what nature intended for them, there would be less obesity, and more people living longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives,” says Tricia Silverman, Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Expert, owner of NuTricia’s Lifestyles, a wellness consulting firm from Needham. “As a nutritionist, I’ve seen the amazing effects of a healthy diet and active lifestyle in seniors.” In the seminar, Tricia will reveal simple changes that can impact longevity.
Abkhazia is an independent region that borders the Black Sea, Russia and Georgia. Vilcabamba is a town that resides in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador. Hunza is a valley area in the mountains in northern Pakistan.
