Oldest Person Ate 3 Eggs a Day

Recently, the world's oldest person died at age 117. Her name was Emma Morano and she lived in the Piedmont region of Italy. She had strong family genetics for longevity.

If true, this is what we know about her diet from various news sources:
  • She ate three eggs a day, two of them raw - for more than 90 years.
  • She had chicken for dinner in the evening.
  • She rarely ate fruits and vegetables.

It's no wonder I'm seeing a cooked egg atop every new recipe these days. Don't forget to mix up deviled eggs once in a while and also make that great kid recipe of fried egg in bread.
