Beauty begins within and that's the truth, Ruth! People are always mesmerized by my age and I give the credit to eating foods that keep me youthful, along with my delicious family genes, of course. But there is another secret to my youthful living and that's incorporating healthy anti-aging foods as much as possible.
I've been preaching for awhile now about investing in what you digest and sexy is not only is your closet but it's in your kitchen too!
Get into a few of what I call my Forever Young Foods below.
