Emma Morano is 115 years old and is officially Europe’s oldest woman, and the fifth oldest in the world. Morano has revealed in a New York Times profile what she believes “keeps her kicking”. 

Firstly, raw eggs. Morano eats 3 a day following a doctors recommendation she received in her teens. Lately she only manages to eat two, with “ground meat, soupy pasta and a banana”. 

Her second tip is the absence of men. Morana was married but describes it as an “unhappy” relationship. She decided to separate from her husband in 1938 and has remained single ever since. She said she didn’t want to be dominated by anyone. 

There we are ladies, go ditch those men and pick up some eggs instead.
