A: Drink unprocessed water, breathe clean air, eat minimally processed foods, and get in good exercise.
Q: Which foods (or drinks) are currently taking prime positions in your kitchen pantry?
A: Almost all the water I drink has rose nectar added to it. It’s just so tasty!

A: Besides making love of course, nothing boosts my mood better than really intensive exercise.
