What The World’s Oldest Living Person Eats Everyday

Guinness World Records

Ms. Susannah Mushatt Jones of Brooklyn, New York, is currently the world’s oldest living person. Born on July 6th, 1899, she is 116 years of age and has lived through three centuries. When asked her secret for longevity, she gives two answers: lots of sleep and bacon.

In fact, each day, Ms. Jones eats bacon, grits, and eggs. According to one source, she has a sign in her kitchen that says, “Bacon makes everything better.” And on her birthday cake this year, fondant bacon decorated her cake, as reported by the New York Times.

The supercentenarian’s family also credits her love for her family, positive energy and generosity for her long life. With 100 nieces and nephews, that’s a lot of love to go around.
