This 108-Year-Old Louisiana Woman Simply Can't Get Enough Taco Bell

Centenarians are a good source of recommendations about the diets that will help us mere mortals live to their age. Eat lots of leafy greens, they tell us, but also make sure to share the joy of mealtime with others.

However, there has never been a more relatable piece of advice for achieving such impressive longevity than what we just learned from a 108-year-old Louisiana resident. Christine Homan, born on Dec. 4, 1914 during World War I, absolutely loves indulging in tacos. More specifically, the Bossier City woman can be found munching on hard shell tacos from Taco Bell, according to KKTC. When you know, you know.

Homan must not have spoken with Eden's Gate, a company that researched the world's oldest people to learn about their lifestyle choices helping them live longer, because Taco Bell definitely isn't on that list. But world's oldest people aren't just eating fruits and vegetables, either. Jeanne Louise Calment, who lived to be 122, said her diet included chocolate, olive oil, and Port wine.

That's similar to how other centenarians eat in the world's Blue Zones—Greece, Costa Rica, Italy, Japan, and California—which are the regions of the world that have the highest concentrations of centenarians.

Those in the Blue Zones tend to eat a large breakfast containing vegetables, legumes, fruits, and whole grains. They also avoid red and processed meat (there goes Taco Bell). The good news? Those centenarians love their morning Joe, though they don't take it with added sugar or cream.

Dinner tends to be a lighter meal of fish, whole grains, and vegetables plus healthy fats such as nuts or avocados.

But given Homan's strong Taco Bell evidence, perhaps the red meat and the processed hard, delicious taco shells have a secret ingredient that is truly the secret to a long-lasting life? Or at least it's key to a happy, fulfilled life as a gourmand.

These 5 Grocery Items Are Cheaper Than Ever Right Now

The grocery industry has been facing major disruptions. The combined effects of the pandemic, climate change, and economic uncertainty over the past couple of years have culminated in a series of supply chain breakdowns. For the consumer, this means supply shortages , shipping delays , and temporary store closures are becoming more commonplace – and all of the added production cost to suppliers is driving up food prices . The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index report for January 2022 was released on Feb. 9, and it tells the story of cost trends for every spending category over the past year. Now the numbers are in, and since January 2021, "food at home" spending has increased 7.4%. Consumers should use this number as a benchmark, Phil Lempert, the consumer behavior analyst and founder behind Supermarket Guru , told Eat This, Not That!

When Should I Take Creatine?

Creatine is probably the most well-researched supplement on the market today. Numerous studies have found positive adaptations in strength, power and muscle mass thanks to creatine supplementation—especially when it's combined with resistance training. Although the benefits of creatine are well-known to lifters, the best time to take it isn't common knowledge. Which leads us to some important questions:     Does an optimal time for consuming creatine exist?     If it does, should you take it before or after your workout? According to a new study published in the Journal of Exercise and Nutrition, the timing of creatine ingestion does indeed play a role in getting bigger and stronger. Creatine supplementation before resistance training increases muscular strength and lean muscle mass. Interestingly, taking creatine immediately after lifting weights results in greater muscle growth than taking it immediately before. However, in terms of strength gains, no difference betw
