*I prefer to grow my fruits, vegetables, cook at home – Supercentenarian
Elizabeth Francis, who just celebrated her 114th birthday, also has other tips for aspiring centenarians.
The centenarian says that “the key to living a long life is to eat everything”.
She, however, said that she prefers to grow her own fruits and vegetables, and cooks exclusively at home instead of eating fast food.
Elizabeth Francis, who was born in 1909 – the same year that William Howard Taft became the 27th president of the United States – has made history by being the oldest living woman in Texas history.
Despite her advanced age, Francis is still as spry as she was in her younger years.
“I’m very, very young. Look at me, I’m like a little young chicken,” she said to her local ABC station.
Elizabeth Francis celebrated her milestone birthday with five generations of her family and several close friends and says that her key to long life is “eating everything”.
Francis was nine years old when the 1918 “Spanish Flu” pandemic ripped through the world.
More than 90,000 people currently alive in the United States today are over the age of 100 – more than double what was around even twenty years ago.
In fact, people are living so much longer than ever before that there’s a new category of people called “supercentenarians” – that is, people who are 110 or older – and Elizabeth Francis is one of them.
