365:122

365:122Jeanne Louise Calment was a French supercentenarian who had the longest confirmed human lifespan in history, living to the age of [b]122 [/b]years, 164 days.

Calment ascribed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance for her age to a diet rich in olive oil, and rubbed onto her skin, as well as a diet of port wine, and ate nearly one kilogram (2.2 lb) of chocolate every week. Calment reportedly remained mentally intact until her very end.

My diet too is rich in Olive Oil (I just purchased 15 litres of the stuff!) and I am also more than partial to port wine. Tempting as it is to emulate the good lady, my chocolate intake is somewhat short of a Kilo a week.

We raided Hotel Chocolat’s post-Easter sale and supplies arrived on Wednesday. These are Nutmeg Pralines. V good. Not sure if they will ensure longevity but you never know.
