Vilcabamba, which is located in Ecuador, is often called ‘the Valley of Long Life’. What’s the secret? It is not very hot or very cold – the air is very clean. People work hard in the fields, and do a lot of exercises. Their diet is very healthy with fruit and vegetables, they almost never eat meat and fish and have good social life. The water they drink, from Vilcabamba River, is very rich in minerals.

In Ogliast, a mountain region of Sardinia in Italy, people live to be 100, and they are normal and healthy. People in the villages work outside in their fields with their animals. They have a healthy diet , with a lot of vegetables and not much meat or fish. They almost never take any medicine, but they usually drink a little grappa before they go to bed. Fortunato who lives there, says to his family and friends, ‘I am never stressed’.

People in Okinawa in Japan do not have big meals. They just have vegetables and fish, and often eat soya. Okinawans are very active, often work until they are 80 or more, and they also relax every day – they see and meditate with friends and relatives, they are always positive, and they are never in a hurry.

In my family, we usually have a well-balance diet. We eat vegetables and grains every day. We love all kinds of fruit. We eat chicken or turkey about three times a week, and we eat fish and seafood once or twice a week. We are also very fond of different kinds of mushroom. We hardly ever have beef. We eat once in a while at restaurants, but we don’t eat out very often. We do have some special days, though.

Once a month, my parents take us out to our favorite Chinese restaurant. We love that, the dumplings are delicious! And sometimes my mom makes Mexican food. My little brother enjoys it! My mother is a very good cook and she loves us! She is always trying to find out ways to give us healthy and good food. She take classes, buys magazines, reads books, and buys special ingredients, to learn new ways to cook healthy and tasty for us.

We are three children at home and the whole story began when my oldest brother decided to take sport seriously. His trainer suggested my mum to give him healthy food to enhance his performance, so she decided to cook healthy for everybody at home. Now we are happy with the healthy life we have.
