There are many of us who have discarded the antiquated model of how and when one should age, and replaced it with more appropriate lifestyle paradigms that mirror our restructured visions. As a collective group, we envision post retirement years where our zest for life continues to be satiated by our eventful lives. We not only expect to be “active”, but to continue to pursue our dreams without restriction. The old cliché of an elderly couple rocking together on the front porch with blankets across their laps reminiscing about the “good old days” is not in our future. We expect to travel, exercise, learn, grow, appreciate and savor while blending the wisdom we have acquired with the vibrant health we have cultivated. It is by and for these individuals that The Power of Chow is envisioned.
Centuries before Herodotus, one of the world’s first historians, spoke of the proverbial “Fountain of Youth”, human beings have revered longevity. Eternal youth has been the central quest of legend and myth, inspiring Ponce De Leon and others like him to search for the secret to a long and healthy life. Today, researchers have found that proper nutrition can significantly modulate age-related decline.
The link between food and longevity has been appreciated since before the time of Hippocrates. Some of the oldest people on the face of the earth live in the Caucasus. According to Soviet authorities, the most famous of all was Shirali Muslimov of Azerbaijan, who passed away in 1973, at the wonderful age of 168. The typical diet of Azerbaijani villagers consists primarily of eggs, cheese, butter, yogurt, curds, and a variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs. They consume soup made of yogurt and greens and rarely eat bread or products made of flour.
