I came across this story and it was so inspiring I had to write a post about it.
Annette Larkins is a 70 year old woman from Florida who barley looks 40 years old. Annette is a raw food-est and vegan who only eats and drinks food she grows in her own backyard garden. I find this both sad and incredible that we live in times where we can have such vast resources in terms of technology, communication, and to have such an amazing person like this and still be suffering from obesity in the ways that we are as a country. In my mind, this woman and her story should be the single most important peace of evidence that we are doing something very wrong and on a depressingly large scale. I do not expect everybody to suddenly become raw food-est or even become vegan. However, we can not continue to ignore the repercussions of bad eating habits... Hmm, if only there was a rapper who could make eating your veggies cool. Hahaha.
