How do you live to be 105 years old? By eating bacon every single day, according to 105-year-old Texas woman Pearl Cantrell.

The grandmother has outlived three of her seven children as well as her husband, according to Science World Report. But her secret to a long life isn’t regular exercise or a vegetarian diet, but rather eating fatty pieces of delicious bacon every single day.

“I love bacon and eat it everyday,” Cantrell said. “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say.” Amen to that.

Cantrell loves bacon so much that for her 105th birthday, Oscar Meyer delivered cases of bacon to her house.

Moral of the story: If you live to be 105, you get free bacon. So eat up.
