The editors and writers at the all-things-food-and-drink site Daily Meal remind us of something we seem to keep forgetting: “Everyone claims to have a secret to extending your lifespan, sometimes an unlikely one — a daily cup of coffee, some cocktails or even bacon,” they write. “But the best way to live a long, healthy life, most authorities agree, is by consuming lots of fruit, vegetables, and whole grains.” And this: “The key to longevity is moderation.”
With those tenets in mind, they offer a list of foods to help us stay upright. The good news: wine, chocolate and garlic are among them. For full disclosure (with recipes) and to see a slideshow, click here.
