My day begins a little before 6 A.M. I never set an alarm clock.

My own recipe for longevity includes considerable amounts of fruits and vegetables. An additional major responsibility for the maintenance of our bodies is regular exercise; at least 4 to 5 times a week.
I once in a while cheat and have a little ice cream, and then I kind of blame myself.
We take better care of the maintenance of our cars than we take care of the maintenance of our bodies.
Maybe some people will not agree, but I like to eat sardines in the morning for breakfast. I think some people will have a hard time eating sardines in olive oil or pickled sardines for breakfast. I guess that is why I am still single.
I expend a lot of energy in my 50-60 minutes of cardio and strength training every day.
I never have anything go wrong. Never have a backache. Never have a headache. Never have anything else.
I never think about age at all. I just think about what I eat.
No pills, not even aspirin, and certainly no supplements ever enter my mouth – everything I need comes from my fish and vegetarian diet, which incorporates many different kinds of fruit and vegetables every week.
When I open my mouth, the room rings.
Exercise your brain and body, keep engaged with work and friends, and feed your brain with a healthy, plant-based diet – as well as knowledge.
Personally, I like to juice up several different kinds of fruit and vegetables – which may include various combinations of bananas, red bell peppers, apples, carrots, celery, broccoli, spinach, parsley, tomatoes, cucumbers, etc.
It is never too late to change the way you eat – once you do, your body will thank you with a longer and healthier life.
I drink coffee in the morning and a few cups throughout the day. Among coffee’s health benefits are lower risk of Parkinson’s, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and dementia.
My plant-based diet plus fish is to credit for my low blood pressure, high energy, and robust immunity.
Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and other varieties have anthocyanins that can help reverse some loss of balance and memory associated with aging.
I never had a boss in my whole life. I’ve totally destroyed anybody’s ability to tell me what to do.
By eating many fruits and vegetables in place of fast food and junk food, people could avoid obesity.
If someone paid me a million dollars to drink a glass of milk, I wouldn’t do it; maybe that’s because I don’t need the money.
I’ll match wits with anybody. I don’t care if they have the top degree in the world.
I try to eat as near perfect as possible, but once in a while I eat for my taste buds. For example, I occasionally like to treat myself to a small cup of chocolate frozen yogurt – plus toppings.
Even though I am Chairman of Dole Food Company, I do most of my own grocery shopping.
I think anyone who wants to live past 100 can do it.
Many of the people I work with that are half my age complain that they feel tired all the time. I tell them: ‘Look at what you’re eating, how much you are exercising, and how much sleep you are getting.’
At 88 years old – with every intention of living decades longer – I’m still running a company, writing articles, launching new ventures, and fully enjoying life.
Since acquiring major interests in Dole Food Company 28 years ago, educating the public on proper diet has constituted the agenda of the Dole Nutrition Institute.
