The mother and daughter adopted a whole-food plant-based diet 30 years ago, and it doesn’t look like they’ve aged a day since then. Clean eating and a regular dose of exercise are helping them keep Father Time at bay.

Their new cookbook, The Ageless Vegan, is packed with 100 recipes promising to unlock “the secret to living a long and healthy plant-based life.” They highly recommend the pecan pie!

The time-fighting duo sat down with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll before taking the stage in front of a packed house at the Vegan This! event in Washington, D.C.

Did you know that vegetarians live significantly longer than those who eat meat and dairy? Women live an average of six years longer while men extend their lifespan by an average of 10 years, according to the landmark 2012 Adventist Health Study.

Certainly, the McQuirters are on to something!
