The fuzzy, outdated TV advertisement broadcasted much too loudly and far too energetically for the average Millennial at seven in the morning, but you didn’t mind, at least not today. 

For the soft hues of your lazy, spring daze consumed you completely.

Mrs Lindu, 96, is the oldest gudeg vendor in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Gudeg is a traditional dish, made from young jackfruit cooked with coconut milk and spices, wrapped in banana leaf. Mrs Lindu has been selling gudeg since her adolescence. Yogyakarta is the province with the highest life expectancy in Indonesia.

People all around the world are living longer today than ever before – but the extent to which everyone can benefit from this depends heavily on health. Healthy ageing means having the freedom to continue to be and do what we have reason to value as we age.

Post a photo of you - or someone you know - embracing old age as part of the World Health Organization campaign to break down the stereotypes that we often associate with ageing. Tag it with #YearsAhead and your photo might be featured!

I made a raw vegan quesadilla at work today. The quesadilla wrap is coconut based, it holds together the pinenut pesto, spicy faux-mince, cashew sour cream, and sunflower seed ricotta.The wrap is super easy to make and the best part about it is it’s versatility. It could easily be used as ‘pasta’ sheets, dumplings, spring rolls, samosas, the list goes on.

Here’s how to make them:

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups young coconut meat
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp Himalayan rock salt
  • 2 tbs psyllium husk 
  • spice/flavour of choice (we used a tsp of turmeric for the yellow colour). Some other good options are red peppers, spinach, basil, or you can substitute the coconut meat with red cabbage for incredibly vivid purple wraps.

Directions:
Blend all except for the psyllium husk until smooth, then add psyllium and blend until well mixed. Spread evenly onto 4 Teflex sheets and dehydrate at 105 degrees for 6 hours. You’ll know when they’re done when they are completely dry but still pliable. Carefully peel them off the Teflex sheets and cut up into any shape or size you want. Enjoy!
