Thanks to good genes, I don't have to worry about cholesterol or low sodium, which means I can eat for flavor.
My first wife used to say that untl she had a massive heart attack and passed.

I love all the stuff you mentioned but still eat in moderation. I want to be 100+ and remember it and not be drooling all over the place.

Good luck on that. All my family just lived to be 95-98. I doubt an extra 5 or 6 years would have been worth giving up bacon and steak.

Little flavor wise hint about the lard in baking. Add a some of butter to it. While the lard may give the flakiness to the baked goods, the butter will add more flavor to it. When I bake pie crusts, I always use a combination.

I do agree that black sesame oil is the best in Asian cooking. It adds to the flavor of that type of cooking.

Has anyone used pecan oil? I recently found a brochure on it in a local store and am interested in trying it. Seems expensive though. I only use good quality olive oil and coconut oil occasionally.

Well good luck to you too. Previous generations My family also lived well past 100. Im mid 70's and ALL my friends and family who ate like that are gone except my brother who is in the rest home drooling and staring at the TV. That scares the crap out of me.
I can still run 3 miles in 28 minutes. I box sometimes and win against 20 year olds. I still go on 5 mile forced marches with my friends.
Moderation is the key along with lots of exercise.

Probably - but then, I'm considerably younger.

I don't have to be faster than the grizzly - I just have to be faster than Joe, right?
