Eat This and Live Forever? Yes, Says This Kooky (and Brilliant) Man

Proper nutrition can improve your quality of life and significantly decrease your risk of many common diseases| but brilliant and kooky futurist Ray Kurzweil is trying to take things one step further: he eats for immortality.

Caroline Daniel of Financial Times recently broke bread with Google’s director of engineering (who has been described as an “highly sophisticated crackpot”) over a spread of healthy superfoods that are part of his immortality diet. Ray follows a mostly pescatarian plan and prefers “healthy carbs and healthy fats” to protein. Here’s what was on the menu when Caroline had her visit:

BerriesSmoked fish (salmon and mackerel)Dark chocolateVanilla WestSoy milkGreen teaSteviaPorridge

In addition to his superclean diet| Ray has a serious supplement program. Throughout each day| he swallows 100 pills that cost “a few thousand dollars a day” to support his longevity and immortality goals. Only time will tell if this strict diet and pill-popping regime will pay off| but in the meantime| you can eat like Ray with our healthy breakfast recipes ¡ª many include ingredients he regularly eats.
